Neo-liberal economic policy: My understanding of this policy is that it is a lessening of regulations on workers rights (unions) and other forms of labor. It has created a market driven society for imports and exports of goods. The side effect is that poor countries become depended on low paying jobs in order survive in the own country. Many have called this a new form of colonization. It is odd that we call ourselves civilized when large-scale environmental degradation, poverty, and starvation are modern inventions.

About the Souce: BehindTheLabel.org is a multimedia news magazine and on-line community covering the stories and people of the global clothing industry - the hidden stories of the millions of workers around the world who make our clothes, the people who care how their clothes are made and the multinational corporations behind the labels. At least a hundred short videos on many different topics from Gap, Abercrombie, Target, Coco-cola, Adidas, Reebok, and Nike.
- Much of Abercrombie's clothing bears the "Made in the U.S.A." label, which to many consumers implies that the apparel is produced in factories protected by United States labor codes. However, the clothing is produced in Saipan, a U.S. territory located in the Pacific Ocean, where allegedly thousands of workers have been producing garments for dozens of retailers under sweatshop-like conditions since the 1980s.
