In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, host Marc Clair welcomes 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.” Marc and Ben 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.
