About "Fair Trade Ineffective"
Fair Trade is based on the basic premise that people should be paid a ‘fair’ price for their work, regardless of market fluctuations or supply and demand. This philosophy has actualized most prominently through the Fairtrade Foundation, a certification group which has become almost synonymous with fair trade as a concept. In this brief, we will be addressing the inherent practical flaws within fair trade and Fairtrade’s setup itself. Without seeming overly harsh, a good deal of the evidence shows that, more often than not, perhaps the biggest benefit Fairtrade products offer is virtue-signaling for the consumer – with little to no benefit to those involved in actually producing and harvesting the product.
