They Can't Help It!

The sense of entitlement we are witnessing among the elite is something very different.  It does not arise from need but from an overweening habit of conspicuous consumption.

Feminist Political Economic Analysis of U.S. Chicken Industry

Kristin Sampson uses a feminist political economy (FPE) framework to analyze the U.S. commercial poultry industry as an exemplifier of a production model that is being replicated in poultry sectors across the globe as well as in other livestock, agricultural, and industrial sectors. Trade and investment liberalization brings the industrial model into direct contact with the traditional systems of raising chickens which still feature prominently in developing countries. In light of FPE, how does the industrial poultry production model fare in terms of advancing the sustaining and flourishing of life and providing sustainable livelihoods?

Trade As If People and Earth Matter: A working document on alternatives

Trade As If People and Earth Matter: A Working Document on Alternatives, seeks to contribute to the emerging dialogue on a new framework for trade that holds the promise of promoting just and sustainable development in the countries and areas where it is most needed. Trade policies and agreements must put people first! They should further genuine social and economic development for our neighbors around the world while preserving and creating good jobs here at home. They must support – not hinder – governments in adopting policies to protect public health and the natural environment. Trade policies must strike a balance between creating a predictable structure for international trade and preserving the policy space necessary for governments to foster and secure economic, social and human development for all their citizens.

A Feminist Political Economy Framework

Feminist political economy is one among several heterodox economies that challenge the reigning orthodox neo-liberal economic model which emphasizes the market economy with growth and accumulation as its primary goals. FPE, in contrast, focuses on the provisioning of human needs and human well-being. It employs gender as a defining category and focuses on the actual lived experience of women, men and families and what it means to be a human person.
