Free market economy.

Somehow, I can’t but help to think that the free market economy has amazing loopholes when I read articles like this. I think that the world wide economy needs laws and some basic regulations that apply everywhere. To everyone. To protect basic health, sanitation, worker’s rights, and human well-being. I don’t think that an economy that has this type of result is the most efficient and it certainly isn’t the most moral. But, sadly, the message that this sends is that those people’s lives were not worth the cost savings in dumping toxic waste.

It makes me sad. Just sad.
