Peter Unger and Blood Money

  1. Oct 30, 2007 #1
    Peter Unger has argued that every single dollar you do not spend on anything but the absolute essentials of our survival is a dollar that has some starving child's blood on it. What are your opinions on this statement?

    When tons of wheat and other grains we shipped to third world countries sits and rots instead of being grown or eaten because wheat from the US may be genetically modified and the third world countries don't want to be banned from dealing with the EU which has banned genetically modified grains. Come back when some sanity is involved in how food surplusses are delivered to the starving without politicians and environmentalists groups interfering.
