Hard Labor

Another amazing resource for anyone who wishes to know more and act with information when choosing products or choosing which issue to tackle – the US Department of Labor’s List of Goods Produced by Child labor or Forced (slave) Labor (publicly available in pdf format). The dry checklist gives only a cursory glance – it catalogs entire countries and industries while omitting Europe and the US – but it’s an important prototype for dispassionate analysis of some of the world’s worst problems in ways that can only improve over time. It’s definitely worth a look.
