Review of Organic and fairtrade products : are they part of your shopping list and do you think it’s just another marketing argument? by cr01

Advantages: Does it do just a little good?
Disadvantages: Helps appease our guilt and ultimately maintains the status quo

Middle Class Marketing and Bubbles of Archaic Amusement
Review of Organic and fairtrade products : are they part of your shopping list and do you think it’s just another marketing argument? by BlackSwan

Advantages: Fairtrade is not a bad idea in principle
Disadvantages: Many, not least of all mysticism and middle class condescension

There are few terms that scream middleclass marketing in the 21st century like “Organic” and “Fairtrade”. The marketing technique is simple. Target people who can afford to pay more for a product and reward them with either the caring or smug knowledge th ... Read review

Advantages: More proactive education and prompting live entertainment as an alternative
