In 2009, Nike did admit, to me at least, that there was some validity to my claims. Just before my visit to Indonesia in 2009, Nike sent one of their top environmental people from Asia to investigate this issue. During his visit, this Nike exec sat outside a factory and waited for the dump truck to leave the plant.
Daniel R. Meyer, Professor of Social Work, and Geoffrey L. Wallace, Associate Professor of Public Affairs and Economics, both from the University of Wisconsin, concurred that poverty is rife in large families because there are less financial resources allocated per child than it is in small families where there are more financial resources allocated per child.

Some kudos to /u/logan_donaldson/ BTW. He been pretty reasonable and moderate in his replies throughout and publicly, rather than approaching this in the usual spirit of “get back to work, peons!” that I often read from profs on this issue. I don think he is an ideologue, in other words.

So the company is under increasing pressure to give its shareholders a taste of its cash. It finally succumbed on Tuesday, saying it plans to pay out $100 billion by the end of 2015, in the form of stock buybacks and a higher dividend.
There are buyers who like glass brick. Those buyers are not the majority. People do not know how to decorate around glass brick. On the other hand, fiat money is “paper money” and it’s about as good as that fake monopoly money we used to play with as kids; hence the term “paper currency.” Does fiat money have value? Sure it has value, but what gives it value isn’t the kind of value that’s sustainable for in the long run: what gives it value is solely, the concept of a growing economy, thus fiat money is backed only by a concept. Sure you it can be used to purchase goods and services in an economy in the short run, but what’s going to happen to a currency in the long term when an economy stops growing?

In other words, you want a currency’s purchasing power (the ability to buy things) to grow in accordance with a growing economy.
