What's Missing from "Fair Trade: A Beginner's Guide?"

The Fair Trade movement in the United States is growing and changing.  It is hard to keep up with the facts and figures, not to mention the individuals and organizations getting involved.  To try and help us all catch up I plan to do a simple update of my book, in PDF form, in time for Fair Trade Month in October.   I will do a chapter-by-chapter review, providing updates as I can as well as some questions for discussion given recent changes (ex. the use of plantations for Fair Trade certified flowers).

If you have topics you think missed in the book or updates that you'd like included, let me and other readers know by commenting and recommending sources of info and inspiration.
