Discussion Questions

1. Why do you believe America became a rich country?

2. Do you think "exploitation" played a part in why the United States became wealthy? Why or why not? Was it necessary in order to be where we are today? Is there an alternative?

3. Should government intervene to stop "exploitation" of workers, or is it up to consumers to buy from companies who they feel treat workers fairly? Is it a combination of the two? Explain what you feel the best option would be and why.
