The readings for this week also include multiple examples of the ways in which economic production, consumption, and exchange link our lives to people who may live on the opposite side of the world from us.
For this discussion post, document your own economic activities for one day, from the moment you wake up, until your bedtime. Consider everything from your electricity in your home, to your furnishings, your food, your transportation, and all the ways your day-to-day living depends on people who likely live away from you.
In what ways is your day-to-day living dependent upon far-away people? How far away?
How might your consumption choices be connected to global economic inequality?
Have you ever considered this before, or is this a new way for you to consider your daily lifestyle?
