Economics:U.S., U.K. leaders highlights importance of transatlantic free trade

WASHINGTON, - U.S. President Barack Obama and U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron discussed on Monday at the White House the importance of moving ahead with the European Union (EU) towards negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

Obama told the press at the briefing that he expected negotiations with the EU to be launched in the coming months. "I believe we've got a real opportunity to cut tariffs, open markets, create jobs, and make all of our economies even more competitive," said Obama.

The Obama Administration placed the TTIP at the center of trade priorities, together with the existing Trans-Pacific Partnership talks.

Obama expected the upcoming talks with the 27-nation EU may help meet his goal of doubling exports by the end of 2014.

Cameron concurred and added the greatest challenge is to secure a sustainable economic recovery and "open trade is at the heart of this."

Cameron hoped the free trade talks between Europe and the U.S. will be launched when Obama is in Northern Ireland for the G-8 next month.

He expected the deal to add as much as 15.29 billion dollars to the British economy and 97 billion dollars to U.S. economy.

He also pointed out that the rest of the world would also benefit from the U.S.-EU free trade, which could generate 132 billion dollars world-wide.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
