While globalization may make international trade easier, it often produces uneven outcomes for those in poorer countries who cannot compete and those in richer nations whose jobs are exported . The church has never accepted a market without moral concerns and the escalating numbers of poor are a concern for the church and its ministries. Yet, the largest free trade deal developed, the Trans-Pacific Trade Agreement, is scheduled to be finalized in October. But the public knows very little about its contents. Some say it is the least transparent of any trade agreement signed by the U.S. government. The church is calling for more transparency in trade negotiations and in giving Congress more oversight of the process -- else the voices of ordinary citizens are not heard.
