We expect and hope for some tough questions about the Fair Trade model. Some of the typical inquires, "Doesn't Fair Trade skew the market by encouraging farmers to overproduce?" "Isn't Fair Trade too expensive for most American consumers?" "Does mainstreaming dilute the power and potential of Fair Trade principles?"
If you were the host, what would your questions be? Please post some comments with your tough inquiries. This will help me and Jeff prep, for sure, but I also welcome the chance to consider what conscious consumers want to know.
