  • Nathan, about the Walmart guy:

    Now, I know that the bottom rung of capitalism is not a fun place to be. I wouldn’t want to be there, but I know that it potentially represents a step up for some. The author says:

    “Labor conditions in the developing world may be offensive to the refined sensibilities of some western observers, but ‘bad jobs at bad wages’ are preferable to the relevant alternatives.”

    This is what bothers me though. No one really explains what “bad” is or, moreover why it has to be as bad as it is. Bad is downright brutal in these places, unsafe in every way imaginable.
