Fair trade is not about spending more money or buying more stuff. It's about helping producers in developing countries get a fair price for their goods. In A Fair Deal: Shopping for Social Justice, Kari Jones provides a history of trade, explaining what makes trade systems unfair and what we can do about it. By examining ways in which our global trade systems value some people over others, the book illustrates areas in which fair trade practices can help families all around the world and suggests ways to get involved in making the world a more equitable place.

Reviews

Kirkus Reviews, June 27, 2017
"Jones catches the beauty of fair trade in the way it strengthens morale and human dignity for all those engaged, and she provides a grounded (and painless) introduction to world geography."

CM Magazine, June 22, 2017
"A Fair Deal is another worthwhile additino to the Orca Footprints series focused on ecological literacy, and it will help youngsters become better and more thoughtful consumers. Highly recommended."
