In 1973 the people of Chile owned their own farms and were free to grow what they wanted and needed. After Pinochet they worked on rich landowners farms and grew cash crops for export. That is: "fair trade."
In 1989 Iraq was an "emerging first world nation" with free education from pre-school through Phd. Gasoline was 5 cents per gallon for Iraqis. Medicine, electricity and communications were free.
Trade benefits no one but the traders. Like bankers, investors brokers and CEOs, traders don't actually do real work. They are parasites. Their activities, organizations and the profits produced by them are harmful to the community and will destroy the human race and the planet we live on, if allowed to continue to thrive.
