High Human Cost of Low Prices?
Pressure to maintain low prices leads to unsafe working conditions in Chinese factories, says report. A group called "China Labor Watch" based in NY claims Wal-Mart inspectors are not doing much inspecting.
I don't know anything about the group, they could be funded by Target for all I know. But I do believe that Free Trade will only produce a net better life for all if practiced by free people who have similar regard for human life. A slave economy that treats workers as a disposable resource is going to be able to undersell the free people who value the individual. If the slave economy has enough humans to throw away, they can keep trading with the Free People until the slave Masters can buy the Free People out.
Tariffs on the products of unfree economies can be viewed as insurance premiums on economic security.
