Understanding Economic Structures <Thought>

08/27/2007

If we understood some of the economic structures and incentives better, we may be able to pinpoint the sources of exploitation and inequity.

Many of the worlds economic injustices are created by the economic structures themselves.  Exploitation, poor working conditions, slavery happen when people do not have any other choices. 

If people have other choices for work or making a living, they become much harder to exploit.

Specific examples of exploitation and poverty could be modeled and different options could be explored in the model to determine the best ways to change the structures that cause the problems in the first place.  Workers need more choices and employers need to be able to profit by using fair practices.
