Hi Elle,

i'm also intrigued about the fair trade story. If we look at the market price between FT and non FT, the price difference is so minimal that i don't believe so much more  money really goes to the individual farmer in the small tiny village in a rural poor country. I think Clay Gordon did post something in this regards some time ago. It would very interesting to read more about your point of view!

Regards 

Nino

Elle:

There are some very provocative statements in your video. Can you please provide some references for what you speak about - especially the claim that cacao will become extinct by 2032. Also I am interested in knowing how you think Fairtrade will address cacao extinction - if it will.
