Making Globalization Work for All

Lecture Description:
A decade’s-worth of high-profile efforts to change sweatshop conditions in overseas apparel factories hasn’t worked. Hannah Jones describes Nike’s dismay following in-depth research at its overseas facilities, where cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 corporation had attempted to implement codes of conduct and compliance monitoring. The corporation made “some stark realizations,” acknowledging such systemic issues as excessive overtime, unpaid wages, worker harassment and denial of workers’ rights to associate freely. Real remediation of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 problem, says Jones, must deal with root causes. “There’s no point in Nike having 96 monitors on a factory floor day in and day out monitoring overtime, if overtime is being caused way up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 supply chain.” So Nike is scrutinizing its own behavior as a buyer. We must “incentivize suppliers to become part of business decision-making,” she says, and convince cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m that creating efficiencies in a volatile market doesn’t mean “squeezing labor costs” but “squeezing time to market.” The worker “is central to that,” and better-trained factory managers may be key.

Scott Nova agrees that major U.S. garment retailers must take corporate responsibility to heart. The pressure on foreign suppliers hasn’t succeeded, he says, because “factory managers conclude correctly that if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 brands were truly serious about improved working conditions, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y would pay enough to make it possible for those conditions to be achieved.” Instead, factories compete to pick up cheap contracts, pressure cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir workers to toil for pennies, and use “fakery and deception when customers send auditors to inspect labor conditions.” But cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is good news, he says: “The economics of apparel production are such that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 problem could be fixed.” Since labor costs are a minute percentage of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 retail price of apparel, a tiny increase in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cost of a product passed along to a consumer could enable “brands to pay factories to reflect cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 true costs of compliance—living wages for workers.”



Global Poverty: How Demanding Are Our Obligations?

Lecture Description:
Peter Singer walks listeners through one of his most provocative philosophical arguments -- that affluent individuals must acknowledge cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir moral obligation to relieve cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 unnecessary death and suffering of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poor. His sinuous reasoning starts with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 simple case of a bystander coming upon a child drowning in a pond with no one else around. Should cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bystander leave cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 child to drown, or must he stay and save cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 child? Most people intuitively recognize a duty to rescue cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 child. Singer argues from analogy that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is “no morally relevant difference between cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 drowning child situation and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 situation of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 affluent with regard to children dying of avoidable poverty related causes.”



Ending Global Poverty

Lecture Description:
Imagine a bank that loans money based on a borrower’s desperate circumstances -- where, as Muhammad Yunus says, “cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 less you have, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 higher priority you have.” Turning banking convention on its head has accomplished a world of good for millions of impoverished Bangladeshis, as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pioneering economist Yunus has demonstrated in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last three decades. What began as a modest academic experiment has become a personal crusade to end poverty. Yunus reminds us that for two-thirds of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world’s population, “financial institutions do not exist.” Yet, “we’ve created a world which goes around with money. If you don’t have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first dollar, you can’t catch cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 next dollar.” It was Yunus’ notion, in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 face of harsh skepticism, to give cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poorest of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poor cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir first dollar so cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y could become self-supporting. “We’re not talking about people who don’t know what to do with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir lives….They’re as good, enterprising, as smart as anybody else.” His Grameen Bank spread from village to village as a lender of tiny amounts of money (microcredit), primarily to women. Yunus heard that “all women can do is raise chickens, or cows or make baskets. I said, ‘Don’t underestimate cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 talent of human beings.’ ” No collateral is required, nor paperwork—just an effort to make good and pay back cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 loan. Now cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bank boasts 5 million borrowers, receiving half a billion dollars a year. It has branched out into student loans, health care coverage, and into ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r countries. Grameen has even created a mobile phone company to bring cell phones to Bangladeshi villages. Yunus envisions microcredit building a society where even poor people can open “cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 gift cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y have inside of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m.”



Globalization and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Economic Downturn

Lecture Description:
Globalization is for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first time being hit by a global economic hard landing. What happens to globalization in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 process? What should one expect to see when it comes to a recovery? How do companies and national economies have to change cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir management styles in hard times? Professor Thurow puts cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 events of September 11 into perspective and discusses economic storms, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "shape" of recessions, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 herd mentality and more in this IAP event.
