Problem 36E

When you boil potatoes, will your cooking time be reduced with vigorously boiling water instead of gently boiling water? (Directions for cooking spaghetti call for vigorously boiling water—not to lessen cooking time but to prevent something else. If you don’t know what it is, ask a cook.)

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

GLBL 210 Notes 4/20/16 - Key concepts: o Value chains o Fair trade o Information - Fair trade isn’t a guarantee of well-being o Fair trade producers still rely on market conditions - Different motivations for fair trade: o Want to support fair treatment of farmers o Willing to pay higher price for environmentally-friendly produced coffee - Ethiopian definitions of good life: o Clean/available water o Sturdy/clean clothing and shoes o Education o Nutritional food o Cows able to produce milk o Health center o Did NOT talk about technological advancements or frivolous material possessions o Illustrates differences in different models of success  Ethiopians value different things to constitute a good life than Americans - Information: o Prices set in stock markets of London and New York  Inform market price of commodities o Lack of information of coffee prices on global market  Farmers have difficult time fighting for fair price o Differences of availability of information at different ends of supply chain  Therefore, power is asymmetrical o Lack of information to consumers about fair trade policies - Price for kilo of coffee at producer end= $0.11-$0.22 o Movie said price raise to $.57 would make huge difference in their lives o ~$0.35 raise in labor price would only translate to a change in >$0.01 per cup of coffee for consumer o Difference in price for consumer is barely noticeable - Criticisms of fair trade: o No standardization of fair trade requirements  Ex. different fair labor standards to be considered “fair trade” for different organizations o Fair trade distorts national price, causing too much production for demand, which leads to surplus and decreased prices - Extreme fluctuation of commodity prices o Economies that are reliant on commodities are extremely vulnerable o Ex. coffee prices from commodity crisis chart on PowerPoint (can use as an example for final exam) - Links in value chain: o Growers/producers o Buyers o Exporters of processors o Foreign buyers o Roasters (for coffee) o Retailers (ex. Starbucks) - Goal to increase grower treatment/well-being is to get rid of some of above links o Ex. producers also act as exporters/processors and possibly roasters, get rid of buyers
