Details

Fair Trade is an enormously popular idea in Christian and secular circles alike. Who, after all, could be against fairness? Victor V. Claar, however, raises significant economic and moral questions about both the logic and economic reasoning underlying the fair trade coffee movement. In this monograph, Claar suggests that, for all its good intentions, fair trade may not be of particular service to the poor in the developing world.
