TNCs and the Removal of Textiles and Clothing Quotas

TNCs and the Removal of Textiles and Clothing Quotas
Publisher: United Nations Publications | ISBN: 9211126800 | edition 2006 | PDF | 80 pages | 11,3 mb

For developing countries, the textiles and clothing industries have traditionally been an important gateway to industrialization and increased exports. With the expiration of the Agreement on Textiles and Clothing, the quota system originally set up through the Multifibre Arrangement was phased out. This has important implications for the allocation of export-oriented production and is likely to affect in various ways a large number of developing countries that rely heavily on such exports. Drawing on a wide range of studies as well as on original research, this volume shows that transnational corporations are likely to play a critical role in determining the future global production structure in these industries.

Weaving a Future: Tourism, Cloth, and Culture on an Andean Island
Elayne Zorn | ISBN: 0877459169 | PDF | 249 pages | 2004 | 2 MB

The people of Taquile Island on the Peruvian side of beautiful Lake Tiricaca, the highest navigable lake in the Americas, are renowned for the hand-woven textiles that they both wear and sell to outsiders. One thousand seven hundred Quechua-speaking peasant farmers, who depend on potatoes and the fish from the lake, host the forty thousand tourists who visit their island each year. Yet only twenty-five years ago, few tourists had even heard of Taquile. In Weaving a Future: Tourism, Cloth, and Culture on an Andean Island, Elayne Zorn documents the remarkable transformation of the isolated rocky island into a community-controlled enterprise that now provides a model for indigenous communities worldwide. Over the course of three decades and nearly two years living on Taquile Island, Zorn, who is trained in both the arts and anthropology, learned to weave from Taquilean women.

By the time of this album's release, Jeremy Spencer had been replaced by Bob Welch and Christine McVie had begun to assert herself more as a singer and songwriter. The result is a distinct move toward folk-rock and pop; Future Games sounds almost nothing like Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac…
