I could attempt to explain the phenomenon of modern slavery explored in Disposable People but i could never do so as well as the author himself, Kevin Bales. so be sure to watch his TED talk and find a copy of the book ASAP.

heres a link to the Disposable People google books page so you can grab a sneak peak.



Vodpod videos no longer available.

In this moving yet pragmatic talk, Kevin Bales explains the business of modern slavery, a multibillion-dollar economy that underpins some of the worst industries on earth. He shares stats and personal stories from his on-the-ground research — and names the price of freeing every slave on earth right now.
