Today Trump’s press secretary announced a border tax in the form of a destination tax. The administration did this as a response to Mexico’s stance against paying for the Wall. The implications of this policy are huge and they are routed in long standing Republican policy. There is no indication that any tax would be[…]
I hope everyone has their travel plans to New York for the NY NOW trade show February 4-8. No?? Well I’ve been viewing the Fair Trade Federation member offerings and am almost sorry I’ll be hanging out in Florida during the dead of winter in the northeast. If you’re going, here are a few more[…]

A new year and new fair trade products! One of these days I’ll make it to the NY NOW gift show–which is the most popular and successful for Fair Trade Federation member exhibitors–but for now I’ll continue to attend virtually. This winter’s NY NOW show takes place February 4th through the 8th. I asked the FTF NY NOW exhibitors what’s[…]

In our case, it was easy for us to make the decision when we returned from Kenya with no jobs, no kids, no home, to set up a[…]
When retail sales are going well, you’ll rarely hear retailers complain. When sales are less than stellar, though, retailers have a number of excuses: the economy, it’s an election year, the weather is too hot, too cold, too rainy, too dry… you get the picture. Could you be part of the problem? Might you be[…]
