I believe that there are several different ways of changing our actions when it comes to this normative business question. Since, the material can still be used, I believe that there are two different options that we, as Americans, could take. In dealing with countries and businesses oversees, I would suggest that we sell our clothes, similar to a Plato’s Closet here in the states. If we sell our clothes cheap here, then the seller in the foreign country can sell these clothes and make a surplus without having to pay for the extra pricing that producing the clothes would cost.

It is very difficult to solve all economic problems living in a world where things break, people refuse to work, and other extraneous variables affect the work place. So, I believe that enterprise can make a substantial impact in reducing the amount of poverty and the severity of poverty, I do not believe that poverty will be completely destroyed until Christ returns.
