Insane Trade!

0

The way trade works in the global economy can be insane – it wastes resources, worsens climate change, and undermines the livelihoods of millions of small-scale producers worldwide. Yet it is an almost unavoidable consequence of de-regulatory ‘free trade’ agreements and the billions of dollars in supports and subsidies – many of them hidden – that prop up the global economy.

To raise awareness about this issue, Local Futures has produced this tongue-in-cheek short film, plus a fully-referenced accompanying factsheet, that helps to explain how and why ‘insane trade’ happens.
