Victims? Don't be melodramatic. Tell me. Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever? If I offered you twenty thousand pounds for every dot that stopped, would you really, old man, tell me to keep my money, or would you calculate how many dots you could afford to spare? Free of income tax, old man. Free of income tax - the only way you can save money nowadays.
The incidence of salmonella-infected US chicken has risen from 29% in 1969 to up to 60% of chicken sold today.Who woulda thunk that appointing an industry to monitor itself for health violations would, like, put profits over people's health. Isn't the magical free market supposed to take care of that? Nope.
Clinton Administration introduced new guidelines, the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) program, which took federal inspectors out of the line and handed responsibility of oversight, including inspecting the amount of feces in the chicken... to the industry producers themselves!
The lesson to draw from these incidents isn't that foreign trade is bad, or that market economics is bad, but that both require effective regulatory structures to work.
until one day a "conservative" movement sweeps through the political landscape bringing with it a sustained, systematic campaign to dismantle the entire system as quickly as possible.
