Overview

Social Responsibility in the Global Market provides a practical, non-exploitative alternative for conducting business, which bridges the consumer's social concerns and the producer's financial concerns.

Mary Ann Littrell and Marsha Ann Dickson utilize in-depth case studies to introduce past successes and failures for seven Alternative Trading Organizations (ATOs). These organizations foster artisan empowerment, cultural integrity and business sustainability.

An integrative model synthesizes business conditions, tasks and skills imperative for effective functioning of a fair trade system in an increasingly global market.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Littrell (textiles and clothing, Iowa State U.) and Dickson (consumer and textile sciences, Ohio State U.) use in-depth case studies to explore an alternative way to do business that is both profitable and nonexploitive. The case studies examine the histories of seven Alternative Trade Organizations (ATOs), evaluating their successes and failures as they have tried to foster artisan empowerment, cultural integrity, and business sustainability. Their model for successful ATOs synthesizes business conditions, tasks, and skills required for an effective fair trade system, particularly in light of the increasingly global markets. The book also provides practical financial advice for practitioners in international development, socially responsible businesses, and consumers who want to make informed marketplace decisions.
