Ep 36 - Slaves to Progress (Part 1 of 2) by Ashes Ashes published on 2018-08-16T03:05:12Z More info here: https://ashesashes.org/blog/episode-36-slaves-to-progress-part-1 Despite universal condemnation of slavery, there are more slaves than ever before. They are cheaper (and more disposable) than they ever have been. Who are these people toiling without rest and what forces bind them? Can economic expansion find innovative solutions to this age-old problem? Or is slavery itself built into the foundation of our modern economy? We will explore these questions and more, as well as the connections between slavery and environmental destruction, migration, and the products we consume daily. This is the first of a two part series.
