I think it means to make all products of equal value, like a shoe made in Pakistan the same price as a shoe made in America. Then countries should be getting enough money that child labour won't happen so much and there will be less overall poverty.

Quote:

The fair trade movement, also known as the trade justice movement, promotes international labour, environment and social standards for the production of traded goods and services. The movement focuses in particular on exports from the Third and Second Worlds to the First World. Standards may be voluntarily adhered to by importing firms, or enforced by governments through a combination of employment and commercial law. Proposed and practiced fair trade policies vary widely, ranging from the commonly adhered to prohibition of goods made using slave labour to minimum price support schemes such as those for coffee in the 1980s. Non-governmental organizations also play a role in promoting fair trade standards by serving as independent monitors of compliance with fairtrade labelling requirements.

Implicit (and often explicit) in these approaches is a criticism of the current organisation of international trade as being "unfair". When developing countries export to rich country markets, they face tariff barriers that are four times higher than those encountered by rich countries. Poverty campaigners claim that those barriers cost poor countries $100bn a year - twice as much as they receive in aid.[1] Advocates of fair trade practices also hold that the fluctuation of commodity prices does not guarantee a living wage for many producers in developing countries, forcing many into crippling debt.[2] Market prices may not properly reflect the true costs associated with producing the product due to economic externalities such as environmental and social costs. Although critics of so-called fairer trading practices charge that proposals for reform simply amount to protectionism, campaigners maintain that it is rich countries such as the United States and the European Union which operate expansive programmes that subsidise their domestic producers.





Don't know if that halps or not.


Chris Martin has been a fan of it for a while.  He writes it on his hand a fair amount.  I don't know about the rest of the band because I've never seen them with writing on their hands, nor have I heard them speaking on the subject.

Maybe they reduced it to the acronym so that people would ask and find out what it is... just like you!  :cool: :wink:
