Consumption choices matter

Written by Michael Renner

As participants in a global economy, we have gotten used to the idea that everything is somehow connected to everything else.  Yet the logic of globalization regards people mostly as consumers of products whose origins are foggy at best given the complex and difficult-to-trace global sourcing practices of many corporations.  As a result we know far too little about the conditions under which most products and services are generated--and what their social and environmental impacts are.
