Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Free Trade and Freedom afforded me a better understanding of the concept and contradictions of free trade, particularly within the elements of ethnicity, class, culture and politics in the Caribbean island/nation of St. Lucia. Karla Slocum's brilliant hands-on field study involved the dominate industry of banana production from the farmers to the distributors.

The narratives drew me into a more intimate view of the complexities of the people's struggles for respect, fair pay and fair regulations. The strikes and the recovery from strikes and hurricanes exemplified the people's sheer will to determine their own destiny--to determine dignified self-employment.

Ms. Slocum, thanks for the education.
