Fairer Handel durch Sozialsiegel? Ökonomische Analyse eines alternativen Handelskonzepts

In: List Forum Band 30

  • Torsten Steinrücken
Registered author(s):

    In the last years more and more consumers evince increasing interest in fair traded products. This trade concept is designed to help mainly producers of agricultural products to keep some basic social producing criteria. The different Fair-Trade-Organisations try to implement better work- and life conditions in the developing countries by announcing those producers fixed prices for the current products. The fixed price is considered to be just and acceptable since it does not exploit producers social weakness. It is perceptibly higher than the price at the world market. A part of all consumers pay the higer price and support in that way the efforts of the Fair-Trade-Organisations. The present article discusses the economics of the fair trade instrument and the degree of achievement of the target objectives. (Original text only available in german language)
