 Fair trade - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The FINE definition does not require or imply offsetting penalties which have been one of the main sources of arguments against fair trade, and reads as follows: "Fair Trade is a trading partnership based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade.
The history of fairtrade movements spans the 20th century; it is fairtrade labelling which is the relatively recent innovation which has allowed its principles to be adopted by any company or organisation, and brought the concept into the mainstream.
Previous initiatives include "goodwill selling" that was practised in the United States from the 1950s until 1970s, the Worldshop movement that was begun in 1959 by Oxfam, and alternative trading organisations (ATOs) that operated primarily in the U.S. and Europe from the 1960s until today.

Initiatives include "goodwill selling" that was practiced in the United States from the 1950s until 1970s, the Worldshop movement that was begun in 1959 by Oxfam, and alternative trading organizations (ATOs) that operated primarily in the U.S. and Europe from the 1960s until today.
Some Italian consumer organizations proposed in the 1980s that goods that were imported to Italy should be taxed inversely proportionately to the degree to which social and ecological standards of the exporter matched those of Italy - in other words, lower standards meant a higher offsetting tariff.
