"Lisa Ann Richey and Stefano Ponte offer a deeply informed and stinging critique on "compassionate consumption." Campaigns like Product RED and its precursors advance the expansion of consumption far more than they meet the needs of the people they ostensibly serve. At the same time, such campaigns sell both the suffering of Africans with AIDS (in the case of Product RED) and the power of the average consumer to ameliorate it"--Provided by publisher.
