Watch our 3-minute film to raise awareness about the negative effects of global trade, we call it 'Insane Trade!'
The way trade works in the global economy can be insane – it wastes resources, worsens climate change, and undermines the livelihoods of millions of small-scale producers worldwide. Yet it is an almost unavoidable consequence of de-regulatory ‘free trade’ agreements and the billions of dollars in supports and subsidies – many of them hidden – that prop up the global economy.
We've also produced a fully-referenced factsheet that helps to explain how and why ‘insane trade’ happens. Download here: localfutures.org/wp-content/uploads/Insane-Trade-Factsheet-Final.pdf
