Sweatshop debate: tomorrow (updated x2)

Together with Stephen Hickson, Eric Crampton of Offsetting Behaviour fame, will be debating a couple of lecturers from the philosophy department on the merits of sweatshops. Eric is of course defending the argument that sweatshops are far better than the real world relevant alternatives that sweatshop workers face.

If interested and in Christchurch, it's on at 1:00pm in Commerce Room 002, Friday 15 May.

The debate is hosted by EconSoc.

Update: Eric's comments are available here.

Update 2: Brad Taylor on Quote of the Day: Death by Warm Fuzzies Edition.
