6. This is the only legal way for foreign corps to skip regular courts, without proving the courts

incompetent first.

What's worse than anything imo is that while it allows foreigns corps to sue local governments or people, it PROHIBITS local govts or individuals from suing the foreign corps.

Also, no individual or state can initiate a claim against a foreign investor under an investment treaty. This has led to criticisms that investor-state arbitration is not balanced and that it favours the "haves" over the "have nots" by giving foreign investors, especially major companies, access to a special tribunal outside any court.


This ^^^ is what needs be told to the public through msm, but since corps control the media, I'll be pleasantly surprised if they do.

No I'll be shocked.
