Editorial Reviews

The advent of globalization ushered in an unprecedented era of financial growth for major corporations, but the harsh reality is that the consequences of such prosperity has led to the exploitation of the less fortunate around the world. Christine Williams’ warm, empathetic delivery perfectly suits author Jacqueline DeCarlo’s humanistic and intelligent examination of the troubling economic disparity that exists throughout the globe, the history of the Fair Trade movement, and how the average consumer can make an impact by making thoughtful, well-informed decisions at the checkout counter.

Publisher's Summary

What’s wrong with buying regular coffee? Does fair trade necessarily mean ethical trade? What impact can consumers have on global economics? Fair trade means more than just bananas, coffee, and chocolate. Author and activist Jacqueline DeCarlo explains the principles behind fair trade and its development into a powerful economic tool. Packed with inspiring ways to make a difference, this audiobook will encourage readers of all backgrounds to help end poverty, environmental destruction, and human exploitation.
