303: David and Goliath

303: David and Goliath

Dec 2, 2005
Variations on an old tale, with very modern consequences. Cambodia is competing with other nations for the business of big clothing companies all over the world...but they've vowed to follow fair labor practices. Other countries end up with the contracts, and the profits.
So an official Cambodian committee sets out on a mission to convince the U.S. Congress to give them a special trade agreement. Also, a story as old as David and Goliath themselves: the tale of big sister vs. little sister.
  • Contributor David Sedaris uncovers a disturbing and hidden trend that's taking place where small-minded people collide with big retail stores. (6 minutes) FunnyRetail/Commerce
