If Karma Exists...

Recommended Posts

There was an article in the media the other week about an Indian kid working a 100 hour week and getting paid about 8 pence an hour to make stuff for Pound Land.

So, half the people buying this stuff have never done a days work. A considerable proportion of the rest are borrowing money to do so.

If you think about all the stuff made in China on slave wages that means Brits borrow money from China ultimately to spend on tat made by Chinese workers who could never get their hands on that sort of money.

Makes you think that the developing countries are going to be looking at how to cut out the middle man asap - and restore some karma to the universe

They are!

There was a cracking series of reportage progs on 4oD-replay done in sarf america showing people rebelling and talking out against the hidden middle-men and western big business 'players' like Walmart/UK mineral companies ripping them off!

Commodities/Minerals/sweat labour production

They also play the countries off against each other, keeping them poverty stricken.

The poorer asia/south america/africa/poorer pacific ring areas.

The middlemen have decimated eg the coffee industry by switching to Africa for supplies, coz South American pickers were being paid too much in their eyes and middle-men now make more profit from Africa slave labour. Coffee beans are left to rot on the bushes.

I think the mark up for Walmart just on T shirts was paying pennies for 10 of them - retail $15each in usa shops.
