Fair Trade: Does It Help Poor Workers?
Elizabeth, an Everyday Economics viewer, asks: “How does the purchase of fair-trade goods affect wages in developing countries?” Great question! The “fair trade” movement has become popular as a proposed way to increase living standards in developing countries. In this video, we look at whether fair trade does just that. For a good to be considered “fair trade” it must meet various requirements developed by a handful of fair trade organizations. In the developing world, who is better positioned to meet these fair trade requirements — large producers in wealthier countries or small producers in poorer countries? To answer this question, we take a look at the the example of fair trade coffee produced in both Costa Rica and Ethiopia. How does fair trade affect wages and overall quality of life in those countries? And, if fair trade isn’t the best way to improve living standards in developing countries, how else can we maximize employment options and well-being for poor workers? This question is at the core of an entire branch of economics — Development Economics. To learn more, check out MRU’s Development Economics course.

What is Fair Trade?
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Fair trade” Many politicians and NGOS argue that free trade is not enough; it should also be fair. On the face of it, fairness is self-evidently a good thing. However, fairness, in trade as in beauty, lies in the eye of the beholder. Frederic Bastia, a 19th-century French satirist, once observed that the sun offered unfair competition to candle makers. If windows could be boarded up during the day, he argued, more jobs could be created making candles. American trade unions complain that Mexicans' lower wages, say, give them an unfair advantage. Mexicans say they cannot compete fairly against more productive American counterparts. Both sides are wrong. Mexicans are paid less than Americans largely because they are, in general, less productive. There is nothing unfair about that; indeed, it helps to make trade mutually beneficial. The mutual benefits of trade also disprove the fair traders' other complaint, that free trade harms poor countries. By Barry Norman, Investors Trading Academy - ITA

Dialogue: Fair Trade
Marcia Franklin talks with Doug Dirks, the CEO of Ten Thousand Villages, the oldest fair trade retailer in the United States. The two discuss the definition of "fair trade," how a consumer can know whether he or she has purchased a fair trade product, how artisan communities use the money they receive, criticisms of fair trade, and controversy over a new certification process for fair trade products.
Does Fair Trade Help?
Fair trade is a popular movement in wealthy nations. But the next time you pay a premium for fair trade coffee, ask whether your purchase will really help workers in poor countries -- as fair trade products claim to do. As this video explains, there is a lack of strong evidence that fair trade has a positive impact on living standards in poor countries. We look at fair trade using the economic concepts of secondary consequences and the distinction between the seen and unseen. international Trade course: http://mruniversity.com/courses/international-trade Ask a question about the video: http://mruniversity.com/courses/international-trade/does-fair-trade-help#QandA Next video: http://mruniversity.com/courses/international-trade/who-supports-free-trade
Why Fair Trade Chocolate Matters
Americans consume millions of pounds of chocolate per year, but where does it all come from? Forced child labor and child trafficking are a rampant, documented problem in the conventional chocolate industry, but big companies have done little to solve this crisis. So what can you do? Fair Trade chocolate means that cacao farmers are paid a fair price, that they are able to invest in their communities and land, and that their farms are free of forced child labor. By choosing Fair Trade chocolate, you support a system that is better for farmers, their families and the planet. Say no to forced child labor. Choose Fair Trade chocolate.

Global Journalist: Is Fair Trade really fair?
You see the label on coffee, chocolate, t-shirts and even gold, “Fair Trade.” The extra dollars you pay for the products are meant to guarantee they’re produced ethically and sustainably. And that the farmers and workers who produced them are justly compensated. What began as a humble effort by a few churches and activists a half a century ago to help people in the developing world has grown into a multibillion dollar industry. But the movement has attracted critics, who say the label today is mostly marketing that benefits companies in Europe and the U.S. On today’s edition of Global Journalist, a look at the growth of the Fair Trade movement, and how well it’s achieving its goals. Our guests this week: *Christopher Cramer, a professor of political economy at the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London *Rob Everts, co-director of Equal Exchange, a co-operative fair trade company that sells coffee, cocoa and other fair trade products *Poul Mark, founder of Transcend Coffee, a coffee roasting company and distributor in Canada If you're interested in more Global Journalist content, visit our website, www.globaljournalist.org.

Greenwashing vs. Direct Trade vs.Fair Trade
Direct trade can be ethical, but that's the whole problem with it--it's not a certification, it's not defined. It's up to the individual corporation/business to define. Fair trade is expensive, partially, because it is regulated. It's also highly imperfect. ~ Who doesn't love a good cup coffee? Waylon talks about the new trend of direct trade, how it is different from fair-trade, and why we should ask a few more questions before we down that cup of coffee.
Fair trade
Fair trade is an organized social movement whose stated goal is to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions and to promote sustainability. Members of the movement advocate the payment of higher prices to exporters, as well as higher social and environmental standards. The movement focuses in particular on commodities, or products which are typically exported from developing countries to developed countries, but also consumed in domestic markets (e.g. Brazil and India) most notably handicrafts, coffee, cocoa, sugar, tea, bananas, honey, cotton, wine, fresh fruit, chocolate, flowers, and gold. The movement seeks to promote greater equity in international trading partnerships through dialogue, transparency and respect. It promotes sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers in developing countries. Although no universally accepted definition of 'fair trade' exists, Fairtrade labeling organizations most commonly refer to a definition developed by FINE, an informal association of four international fair trade networks (Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International, World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), Network of European Worldshops and European Fair Trade Association (EFTA)): fair trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency, and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. Fair trade organizations, backed by consumers, are engaged actively in supporting producers, awareness raising, and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade.

Free Trade vs. Fair Trade
Fair trade vs. Free trade http://fairworldproject.org Wouldn't it be great if public policies benefited the public, so everyone could prosper, and so-called "free trade agreements" valued our precious resources rather than exploiting people and the planet? As consumers, we have the power to vote with our dollars, as well as to engage in local and federal policy reform in order to help change and transform our global economy to protect our people and planet. In January 2014, the Camp-Baucus "Fast Track" legislation was introduced, that would have allowed President Obama to vote on free trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) without a full and open debate. This was concerning not only because such an arrangement is an affront to democracy, but also because the specific provisions in these agreements are expected to have negative impacts on farmers, workers, consumers, the environment, and public health world-wide and more time and care is needed to create trade policies that work for people.

International Fair Trade Charter
The International Fair Trade Charter offers a general explanation of the shared vision and values of the Global Fair Trade movement. It has three main aims: 1. To support the work of Fair Trade Organizations in raising awareness among consumers and citizens of the importance and impact of Fair Trade, so that more people will be inspired to join and support it. 2. To facilitate collaboration among Fair Trade Organizations by connecting their specific missions and strategies with the common philosophy of the movement, and to promote collaboration with the solidarity economy, organic agriculture movements and others that fight for similar goals to the Fair Trade movement. 3. To enable others who work with Fair Trade Organizations (in government, academia or the private sector) to recognise the values and approaches that unite the global movement.

How to buy fair trade coffee What is fair trade coffee? * Basically, fair trade means the farmer who produced the product got a fair price for it. This is very important for the livelihood of coffee farmers. Millions of coffee farmers can barely feed their families because they get almost no money for their coffee beans unless its fair trade. * How do you find it? Look for the black and white fair trade logo which is marked on all fair trade coffee and fair trade coffee beans at every Starbucks, although you may have to ask for it. * Supermarkets are beginning to carry it as well, in many cases. If you dont find it, ask your grocer for it. Sometimes it just takes some customer requests. Every time you buy a fair trade coffee beans you can feel good knowing that you're contributing to farming communities around the planet.

What is FAIR TRADE COFFEE? What does FAIR TRADE COFFEE mean? FAIR TRADE COFFEE meaning - FAIR TRADE COFFEE definition - FAIR TRADE COFFEE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Fair Trade coffee is coffee that is certified as having been produced to fair trade standards. Fair trade organizations create trading partnerships that are based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. These partnerships contribute to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to coffee bean farmers. Fair trade organizations are engaged actively in supporting producers and sustainable environmental farming practices. Fair trade practices prohibit child or forced labor. The fair trade labeling organizations having most of the market share and who sell through supermarkets refer to a definition developed by FINE, an association of four international fair trade networks (Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International, World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), Network of European World shops and European Fair Trade Association (EFTA)). The standards developed by Fairtrade Labelling Organization are the most widely used. The certification scheme is run by Fairtrade International (FLO). Coffee packers pay Fairtrade a fee for the right to use the Fairtrade logo, which gives consumers an assurance that the coffee meets Fairtrade criteria. The coffee with this certification mark must be produced by farmers and cooperatives that meet these criteria. Coffee retailers are not restricted by Fairtrade to sell Fairtrade coffee as a premium product and charge as much as they like for the coffee. Importers of Fairtrade coffee have to be registered with Fairtrade and pay a fee. Under the Fairtrade International standards they are obliged to pay a minimum price to the exporting organization, currently $1.40c/lb New York Board of Trade “C” contract, F.O.B. origin for Arabica, and $1.05 for Robusta London “EURONEXT LIFFE” contract, F.O.B origin with 30c/lb extra for organic. When the world price is above this level, they are obliged to pay 20c/lb above the world price. Certified Fairtrade coffee is normally exported by secondary or tertiary cooperatives, marketing this coffee on behalf of the cooperatives the farmers belong to with arrangements that may be complex. There is not enough demand to take all the certified coffee produced, so most has to be sold as uncertified. In 2001 only 13.6% could be sold as certified so limits were placed on new cooperatives joining the scheme. This plus an increased demand put up sales of certified to around 50% in 2003 with a figure of 37% commonly cited in recent years. Some exporting cooperatives do not manage to sell any of their output as certified, and others sell as little as 8%. The exporting cooperatives incur costs including certification and inspection fees, additional marketing costs, costs of conforming to standards, and additional costs of cooperative operation, costs which are incurred on all coffee production, even if little or none is marketed as certified, with a higher price, so the cooperatives may make a loss on Fairtrade membership. Weber reports cooperatives not able to cover the extra costs of a marketing team for Fairtrade, with one covering only 70% of these costs after six years of Fairtrade membership. Any deficit after paying these costs means a lower price for farmers, while any surplus will normally go on “social projects” for “common goals” organized by the exporting cooperative rather than as extra payment for farmers. These may include the building of classrooms, baseball fields, or the establishment of women's groups, for instance......
