Modern slavery constitutes a ‘high’ or ‘extreme risk’ in 115 countries, according to a new global ranking released by risk analytics company Verisk Maplecroft. The research concludes that Asian and African commodity producers and manufacturing countries pose the greatest challenge to companies navigating new legislation on supply chain disclosure, such as the UK Modern Slavery Act. Significantly, the Asian heavyweight exporters of China and India feature in the ‘extreme risk’ category, alongside important natural resource hubs, including DR Congo, Iran and Côte d’Ivoire.
Phi Beta Iota: The USA has more slaves today than existed at the beginning of the Civil War (actually a War of Secession). The Clintons put more blacks into jail than there were slaves in the USA; add to that the Latinos helps captive on large agricultural complexes and the Asians held captive in the underground textile industry, and the throw in the women and children in the sex industry (including the children imported or kidnapped for our pedophile elites) and you have — in the USA — an extraordinary slave industry.
