In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I welcome in Professor Benjamin Powell, head of the Free Market Institute at Texas Tech, and author of the new book “Out of Poverty: Sweatshops in the Global Economy.” Ben and I go over common criticisms of sweatshops in third world countries. Ben describes how sweatshops often offer a better viable alternative for many people to improve their lives, and how market forces – not government edicts – provide better working conditions over time.
