Main Article Content

This paper was originally written for Rosemary Claire-Collard, GEOG 221, Economic Worlds. The assignment asked students to try and uncover the who, what, where, why, when and politics of a commodity, from its origins all the way to its place on the shelf where it was bought it. To do this, students were asked to specifically find out where the commodity comes from and where it was produced, research the labour process that goes into producing the commodity, research the distribution of the commodity across space, and identify places along the commodity chain where things tend to break down or conflicts arise. The paper uses APA citation style.
