To give or sell human gametes--the interplay between pragmatics, policy and ethics. (1/13)

The ever-growing acceptance and use of assisted human reproduction techniques has caused demand for "donated" sperm and eggs to outstrip supply. Medical professionals and others argue that monetary reward is the only way to recruit sufficient numbers of "donors". Is this a clash between pragmatics and policy/ethics? Where monetary payments are the norm, alternative recruitment strategies used successfully elsewhere may not have been considered, nor the negative consequences of commercialism on all participants thought through. Considerations leading some countries to ban the buying and selling of sperm, eggs and embryos are outlined and a case made that the collective welfare of all involved parties be the primary consideration in this, at times heated, debate.  (+info)

Commodification and exploitation: arguments in favour of compensated organ donation. (2/13)

This paper takes the view that compensated donation and altruism are not incompatible. In particular, it holds that the arguments against giving compensation stand on weak rational grounds: (1) the charge that compensation fosters "commodification" has neither been specific enough to account for different types of monetary transactions nor sufficiently grounded in reality to be rationally convincing; (2) although altruism is commendable, organ donors should not be compelled to act purely on the basis of altruistic motivations, especially if there are good reasons to believe that significantly more lives can be saved and enhanced if incentives are put in place, and (3) offering compensation for organs does not necessarily lead to exploitation-on the contrary, it may be regarded as a necessity in efforts to minimise the level of exploitation that already exists in current organ procurement systems.  (+info)

Ethical conflicts in public health research and practice: antimicrobial resistance and the ethics of drug development. (3/13)

Since the 1960s, scientists and pharmaceutical representatives have called for the advancement and development of new antimicrobial drugs to combat infectious diseases. In January 2005, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN), MD, introduced a biopreparedness bill that included provisions for patent extensions and tax incentives to stimulate industry research on new antimicrobials. Although government stimulus for private development of new antimicrobials is important, it does not resolve long-standing conflicts of interest between private entities and society. Rising rates of antimicrobial resistance have only exacerbated these conflicts. We used methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus as a case study for reviewing these problems, and we have suggested alternative approaches that may halt the vicious cycle of resistance and obsolescence generated by the current model of antimicrobial production.  (+info)

Taking tissue seriously means taking communities seriously. (4/13)

BACKGROUND: Health research is increasingly being conducted on a global scale, particularly in the developing world to address leading causes of morbidity and mortality. While research interest has increased, building scientific capacity in the developing world has not kept pace. This often leads to the export of human tissue (defined broadly) from the developing to the developed world for analysis. These practices raise a number of important ethical issues that require attention. DISCUSSION: In the developed world, there is great heterogeneity of regulatory practices regarding human tissues. In this paper, we outline the salient ethical issues raised by tissue exportation, review the current ethical guidelines and norms, review the literature on what is known empirically about perceptions and practices with respect to tissue exportation from the developing to the developed world, set out what needs to be known in terms of a research agenda, and outline what needs to be done immediately in terms of setting best practices. We argue that the current status of tissue exportation is ambiguous and requires clarification lest problems that have plagued the developed world occur in the context of global heath research with attendant worsening of inequities. Central to solutions to current ethical concerns entail moving beyond concern with individual level consent and embracing a robust interaction with communities engaged in research. CONCLUSION: Greater attention to community engagement is required to understand the diverse issues associated with tissue exportation.  (+info)

The project of Dave Beechs Art and Value: Arts Economic Exceptionalism in Classical, Neoclassical and Marxist Economics is to clear up some of the muddle and confusion that surround the word, concept, or perhaps merely trope of the commodification of the arts.1 Beech begins his essay with the observation that nearly everyone seems to agree in the most ardent terms that art is, always has been, or has recently become nothing but a commodity (1). No doubt Tyler Cowen and Fredric Jameson have different takes on what that might mean, but the convergence-which Beech is not alone in remarking-is startling. Skeptical about the possibility of arts commodification, Beech sets out to evaluate the claim that art production coincides with capitalist commodity production (3)-in three discourses: classical economics, neoclassical economics, and Marxism.. Admirably, Beech, in order to take the commodification thesis seriously, requires some kind of mechanism or mediation that would plausibly subsume ...
In this article, I address the issue of the sale of human organs and the moral implications of a market in human organs under the aegis of Christian Bioethics. I argue that moral issues of this kind cannot be adequately be addressed from the point of view of moral frameworks, which point exclusively to procedural norms. Rather, a moral perspective must embody some substantive norms derived from a particular content-full moral or theological perspective. This substantive norms to which I appeal in this article are those of Roman Catholicism ...
In December 1999, before making any infrastructure investments, the private water company, Aguas del Tunari, announced the doubling of water prices. For most Bolivians, this meant that water would now cost more than food; for those on minimum wage or unemployed, water bills suddenly accounted for close to half their monthly budgets, and for many, water was shut off completely. To add to the problem, the Bolivian government, prompted by the World Bank, granted absolute monopolies to private water concessionaires, announced its support for full-cost water pricing, pegged the cost of water to the American dollar and declared that none of the World Bank loan could be used to subsidize water services for the poor. All water, even from community wells, required permits to access, and even peasants and small farmers had to buy permits to gather rainwater on their property ...

As far as Transamerica is concerned, Brees efforts to acquire normative female beauty, as defined by the narrow terms of our cis-patriarchal, white-centric, able-centric culture, is interchangeable with the whole her worth, validity, struggle and growth as a human being.. While the passable trans women of the support group are played by trans actresses, Bree, so as to appear trans enough to film her struggle to achieve the (not exactly a thing) goal of passing as a real, non-artificial woman, is portrayed by cisgender actress Felicity Huffman adorned in prosthetics and make-up deliberately contrived to make her look trans (also not exactly a thing).. Altogether, Ive frequently felt that Transamerica, more than anything else, is a commercial. An advertisement for passing, for the legitimate form of transness and the assumed trans narrative, for a certain standard of female beauty, for the acquisition of womanhood, and for the products and surgeries and organizations and behaviours ...

A couple of months ago, I wrote an article for the Catholic World Report in which several adult offspring of third-party-conceived offspring were interviewed. These adult offspring recounted the suffering they had experienced as result of their unjust conception. When the article was reprinted on a popular pro-life website as well as a well-trafficked conservative message board, the reactions from many pro-lifers, conservatives and Christians on Facebook, Twitter and comment boxes were quite surprising.. Pathetic. Drama queen. Silly. …idiot loser… Other commenters offered advice such as, Stop dishonoring your parents and grow the hell up. Why were commenters so outraged by Stephanie Blessing, the evangelical Christian and home-schooling mother of five the CWR piece opened with, simply because she revealed how devastating it was for her to learn her biological father was actually a sperm donor?. The harsh and insensitive comments may underscore the fact that many Christians, ...

My first thought when reading Taiye Selasis 2005 essay Bye-Bye Barbar (or What is an Afropolitan?) was that this is the kind of sludge that would piss off Binyavanga Wainaina. One quick google and lo and behold: For Wainaina, Afropolitanism has become the marker of crude cultural commodification - a phenomenon increasingly product driven, design focused, and potentially funded by the West. My second thought when reading Taiye Selasis What is an Afropolitan?, gesturing wildly at my MacBook in my local coffee shop, is that this is the kind of sludge that pisses me off.. I am angry for different reasons to Wainaina (though if he wanted to hang out sometime Im sure we could have fun being pissed off together); I am not so much concerned with the commodification inherent in Afropolitanism as I am with the danger of reproducing a reductive narrative, one which implicitly licenses others to reproduce the same narrative because it has been confirmed by an Afropolitan herself..

Rice is a thinly traded, highly concentrated commodity with only 7 percent of total global production sold outside national borders. The top five exporters account for 80 percent of total exports, which makes importing countries vulnerable to export bans or restrictions.. The drought that began last year and has continued into 2016 has negatively impacted agricultural production in several countries. It has also caused a decline in rice supply and stockpiles in many parts of the world, particularly in the worlds three largest rice exporters in the-India, Thailand and Vietnam.. Thailand announced earlier this year that it will not increase rice exports, while Vietnam is expecting a slight drop in paddy rice production this year. The Philippines, according to various forecasts, is expected to fail again to achieve self-sufficiency this year due to drought and palay production falling below full-year targets.. Critics have said that rice sufficiency in the Philippines is unlikely within the next ...

The absolute artwork meets the absolute commodity Stewart Martin Art s relation to commodification is an unavoidable and entrenched condition for much of the theory, history and practice of art today;
Strange Bedfellows! lamented the title of a recent letter to Museum News, in which a certain Harriet Sherman excoriated the National Gallery of Art in Washington for its handling of tickets to the much-ballyhooed Van Goghs van Goghs exhibit. A huge proportion of the 200,000 free tickets were snatched up by homeless opportunists in the dead of winter, who then scalped those tickets at $85 apiece to less hardy connoiseurs.. Yet, Shermans bedfellows are far from strange. Art, despite its religious and magical origins, very soon became a commercial venture. From bourgeois patrons funding art they barely understood in order to share their protegees prestige, to museum curators stage-managing the cult of artists in order to enhance the market value of museum holdings, entrepreneurs have found validation and profit in big-name art. Speculators, thieves, and promoters long ago created and fed a market where cultural icons could be traded like commodities.. This trend toward commodification of ...
Open-Source 101. Nearly everyone knows about open-source software (OSS). Sure, you may not be a coder, but youve used the Internet, which is pretty much fully made of OSS: websites running the ubiquitous Apache webserver software, displaying customized sites written in Ruby or PHP, drawing on pools of data stored in MySQL databases all running on server computers running the open-source Linux operating system.. The fantastic thing about all this free OSS is how it has helped proliferate the Internet, improving the functionality of the web through rapid mutations in code (thats the free-as-in-speech part) and driving down the cost to commodity levels (thats the free-as-in-beer part). The commodification of the Internet-that is, the marginal cost of an blog or email account is so low that its essentially free-and indeed nearly all computer software and hardware would not be possible without OSS.. OK, so thats the state of the Internet as of circa 1995. Although the details have evolved, the ...
Originally published at The Federalist). The liberal media collective has lost their minds over the confirmation of President Trump appointee Sarah Pitlyk to a seat in a federal court. What is the outrage du jour? That the Honorable Judge Pitlyk recognizes the negative effects of invitro fertilization and surrogacy on women and children.. The Hill, Daily Beast, Bustle, Common Dreams, and of course Jezebel are sobbing in their beers over Pitlyks confirmation. The HuffPo headlined with a claim Pitlyk is opposed to fertility treatments. Mother Jones laments that Pitlyk has fought against abortion, fertility treatments, and surrogacy.. While there exists a sliver of truth in those headlines, what Pitlyk actually said was that IVF and surrogacy leads to diminished respect for motherhood and the unique mother-child bond, the exploitation of women, the commodification of gestation and of children themselves.. As the founder and director of a nonprofit organization devoted to defending childrens ...
Precision livestock farming is the management of livestock using the principles and technology of process engineering. Key to PLF is the dense monitoring of variegated parameters, including animal growth, output of produce, diseases, animal behaviour, and the physical environment. While its proponents consider PLF a win-win strategy that combines production efficiency with sustainability goals and animal welfare, critics emphasise, inter alia, the potential interruption of human-animal relationships. This paper discusses the notion that the objectification of animals by PLF influences the (...) developmental pathways of conventional industrial farming. We conduct a conceptual analysis of objectification by comparing discussions in feminist ethics and animal ethics. We find that in animal ethics, objectification includes deontological arguments regarding instrumentalisation, de-animalisation, alienation, commodification and quantification of animals. The focus on socio-political context and ...
Book: Dan Schiller, Digital Depression: Information Technology and Economic Crisis. University of Illinois Press, 2014. Excerpted from a review by Richard Hill:. According to some, the current governance arrangement for the Internet is nearly ideal. In particular, its global multi-stakeholder model of governance has resulted in a free and open Internet, which has enabled innovation and driven economic growth and well-being around the world. Others are of the view that things have not worked out that well. In particular, the Internet has resulted in mass surveillance by governments and by private companies, in monopolization, commodification and monetization of information and knowledge, in inequitable flows of finances between poor and rich countries, and in erosion of cultural diversity; further, those with central positions of influence have used it to consolidate power and to establish a new global regime of control and exploitation, under the guise of favoring liberalization, while in ...

I agree with you somewhat, that the commodification of feminism is extremely dangerous. Corporations have reduced feminism to mere signifiers and cues (slogan tees with equality plastered across the front, as if thats going to solve anything). It is heart breaking...but to me it is only heartbreaking because huge corporations have hijacked the meaning of feminism. As Zielser states in her book (highly recommend, now were sharing book tips; We used to be feminists: from Riot Grrrl to Cover Girl, the buying and selling of a political movement) - The fight for gender equality has transmogrified from a collective goal to a consumer brand.

This article is concerned with the efforts of a Garifuna community in Honduras to claim a space in the growing local tourist economy. Its inhabitants maintain that they suffer a form of culture loss because they do not control the commodification of their culture through tourism. By examining the local perspective, we argue that cultural performances could be treated as cultural property and consumed by tourists in a context of mutual exchange as opposed to a hegemonic one. We suggest that every cultural performance entails a statement about collective identity and thus the local battle for cultural ownership relates to the politics of self-representation and the position of the community in the wider world. The members of the community we studied articulate their desire to become an attraction, which can fully satisfy the tourist quest for authenticity and difference. Only this has to take place on their own terms, to serve their interests and to promote the image they have about themselves and ...
Presented at once as an example, and even a condition of the economic, technological, political and security development of Turkey, the Turkification of the defence industry lies at the heart of the governments legitimacy. Following a socio-historical approach, this chapter aims to understand how this major project, inseparable from the ongoing formation of the state and of a national bourgeoisie organically related to it, was reconfigured in the neo-liberal era not despite globalisation but based on it, particularly through the commodification of Muslim solidarity and military protection. This project appears to constitute an instrument of nationaliberal extraversion that is part of an unstable quest for hegemony, riven by numerous conflicts.
ISSUE: Despite international controversy over the patenting of human genes and other life forms, US-based genomic companies (in partnership with major pharmaceutical corporations), are filing patents for exclusive monopoly control on human genes and gene fragments. IMPACT: The commercial potential of genomic technologies is still untested and unproved. But the commodification of human genetic material raises many profound questions: Who will control the genes and genetic information that may someday unlock secrets to genetic diagnosis and treatment of human diseases? Will the patent grab on human genes ultimately thwart innovation as well as information exchange between public and private sector researchers, and between North and South? Who will benefit, and at what cost to society?
In this work, I discuss the tension between gift and market economy throughout the history of creativity. For millennia, the production of creative artifacts has lain at the intersection between gift and market economy. From the time of Pindar and Simonides - and until the Romanticism will commence a process leading to the complete commodification of creative artifacts - market exchange models run parallel to gift exchange. From Roman amicitia to the medieval and Renaissance belief that scientia donum dei est, unde vendi non potest, creativity has been repeatedly construed as a gift ...
Centering Animals in Latin American History writes animals back into the history of colonial and postcolonial Latin America. This collection reveals how interactions between humans and other animals have significantly shaped narratives of Latin American histories and cultures. The contributors work through the methodological implications of centering animals within historical narratives, seeking to include nonhuman animals as social actors in the histories of Mexico, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Chile, Brazil, Peru, and Argentina. The essays discuss topics ranging from canine baptisms, weddings, and funerals in Bourbon Mexico to imported monkeys used in medical experimentation in Puerto Rico. Some contributors examine the role of animals in colonization efforts. Others explore the relationship between animals, medicine, and health. Finally, essays on the postcolonial period focus on the politics of hunting, the commodification of animals and animal parts, the protection ...

The show is not narrative in any way, and is just as much about the seductive, and possibly dangerous, beauty in the visual design of data as it is the content of the works text. And it is those visual elements that really anchor the performance overall. They are striking and more complex than they seem in that they are generated on the spot and not simply prerecorded animation that is cued up to the text. The lecture being given by Abacus veers from inspirational to disturbingly dogmatic in its ersatz progressive philosophy. The show is often enticing and does score its points about the banality of ideas and their commodification with a good deal of subtlety. It does risk being a bit too subtle at times: there is clearly some ambivalence toward the value of the progressive ideas about environmentalism and correcting societal ills that fill the suave, persuasive Abacus talk. But something is always just a little bit off, reminding the audience that the show is still on another level a put on ...

This was my first time being published in Best American Poetry after over 15 years of publishing poems in journals-and, yes, I realize all of the problematics of an anthology calling itself the Best, especially one that follows such a partial and subjective selection process-but I will admit to having felt a dorky thrill at being included in a volume-hardcover, no less!-that includes so many amazing poets, including two of my career-long idols, Claudia Rankine and Louise Glück. So when the book came in the mail, I showed it to my husband, who put it on the coffee table. Well, suffice it to say, its off the coffee table now.. What surprised me, though, was that what replaced the little thrill wasnt anger or righteousness, but a little twinge I eventually identified as a vestigial feeling of shame. And I know that the only bright spot of this whole revolting mess is that it gives us an opportunity to focus the spotlight on larger questions of the construction and commodification of ...

https://www.liveaction.org/news/ivf-mom-swap-embryo-daughter/. There is already plenty of evidence to show that in vitro fertilization, or IVF, has led to the commodification of children. An article published in the New York Post is certain to fan those flames. A mother named Lisa explained that she is looking to trade her last remaining embryo with another mother - simply because the embryo is female instead of male.. The mother, Lisa, explained that her five-year-old son desperately wants a brother, not a sister, because a brother will be someone he can share a room with, go to soccer games with, and cheer on the Boston Red Sox with. Im doing this for my son, she said. My husband grew up with sisters and wants a boy too. This is the way we want to complete our family.. Lisa said her daughter is the last embryo she has remaining after going through multiple rounds of IVF.. She reached out to IVF groups on Facebook, writing, Hello, we have been trying to give my child a sibling for three ...

Such commodification is not happening against the wishes of ordinary citizens but because this is what ordinary citizen-consumer want. Look no further than Googles email and Amazons Kindle to see that no one is forced to use them: people do it willingly. Forget laws: its only through political activism and a robust intellectual critique of the very ideology of information consumerism that underpins such aspirations that we would be able to avert the inevitable disaster. ...
Joe Brolly wrote an interesting article on the commodification of sport in this weeks issue of Gaelic Life. Its a topic that crops up frequently as a critique of capitalist culture, from the Against Modern Football movement to combat the pricing of working-class fans out of the game, to controversies over the proliferation of performing-enhancing drugs in elite sport, to debates over whether college athletes should unionise in the United States.. Brolly, a former Derry footballer turned RTÉ pundit, explores it in the context of the amateur GAA and specifically mens gaelic football. His thesis is that the increasing commercialism of the GAA leadership is driving the sport towards professionalism, instilling a will to win that is sapping the love of the game from the players and producing private bodies which are enriching the few at the expense of the many.. What hes describing is similar to a process philosopher Georg Lukács called reification. This is where human relations or properties ...

Each day this week, ASTHOs blog StatePublicHealth.org will take a look at a set of strategies developed by the Social Determinants of Health Learning Network as part of the nationwide Infant Mortality Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (CoIIN). Today, the topic is policies that reduce vulnerability and increase resiliency.. Job Training, Education, and Career Paths for Economic Self-Sufficiency. Two decades after welfare reform and years into a national recession, many struggle to find jobs that lead to economic self-sufficiency. For every 100 families in poverty, 26 received cash benefits from TANF in 2013. In some states, it was 10 out of 100. Even for those who have jobs, the workplace is less family friendly for low-wage workers. States can help low-income women and men address work-family life barriers to employment (e.g., increased access to child care). States can also extend the time for education and training among TANF recipients. In addition, states can support ...

New predictions for the end of the world just keep on cropping up. Its called a Negative Energy Cloud and there is absolutely no physical evidence for its existence. Still, this could be one of the most real and dangerous threats facing the planet Earth. This is the theory and a little of its history. In February 1940 a German physicist by the name of Hans Dietrich Freuder (most likely from Freiburg) was invited by a certain Dr. Hans Reiter to prepare himself to work at the Norsk Hydro in Vemork, Norway. However, in 1941 after setting out for his destination he was redirected to Peenemunde on the Baltic Sea. There is no record of what he worked on during this time but in November 1943 he resurfaced in Berlin having just recovered from severe burns and temporary deafness. He allegedly addressed a small group of scientists at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology and introduced a radical new concept. In attendance were Drs Lenz, Fischer, Plank, Verschuer and Debye. He explained that work ...
