Make Trade Fair? What the heck is that?

A lot of advocacy groups talk about making trade fair. Bono’s DATA African development organization finds trade so important it has its own place in the acronym: Debt, Aids, Trade, Africa. We know a little about the debt. We know about AIDS. But, when it comes to trade, and fair trade, it can be a little confusing. I found OXFAM’s site had some cool cartoons about how things could be adjusted so ethics, fair play, and morality can assist capitalism in developing Africa. I don’t know about you, but I usually find cartoons helpful. And several of these are pretty funny. Enjoy:
