Live Blog: FAIRTRADE
Having just bought some FAIRTRADE coffee i was thinking: all i'm basically doing is subsidising farmers. Sure they may be farmers in LEDCs but its still subsidisation, which is bad and has caused all the problems in the first place.
Now while i support what FAIRTRADE are trying to do i wonder if its actually the right thing to do. Some more research will be needed, and some evidence as to what FAIRTRADE actually does i think.
