Symbol oppose vote Developed countries provide developing countries with the possibilities for economic growth by paying waste disposal contracts, creating jobs in the same context, and enabling developing countries to recycle waste and either reuse this for production or resell it for profits. --Mojojojo89 (talk) 10:57, January 24, 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote Sound economic thinking - but what about the environmetal aspects? Do you honestly think that developing contries have the capabilities in handeling toxic waste in a apropriate way? --Anders Johnsen (talk) 11:11, January 24, 2014 (UTC)Kristian/Anders
    • Symbol oppose vote According to the Basel Convention it is prohibited to export waste to countries to countries where proper recycling facilities are not available. So in a sense it shouldn't happen when they do not have the capabilities. If it happens the country accepting the waste disposal contract is manipulating with the rules of the convention and acting against the well-being of the population. In this case, the talk can not be of exploitation from the side of well develop countries, but from governments from developing countries that are taking advantage of the lacking knowledge of their populations. By misleading developing countries into thinking that they have the right capacities and making the population pay the bill by effectively polluting the lands and destroying their livelyhood.--Mojojojo89 (talk) 11:18, January 24, 2014 (UTC)

Additionally, you argue that the governments of developing countries are taking advantage of its people, but isn’t it the governments of the developed world taking advantage of the less developed ones? --Anders Johnsen (talk) 11:28, January 24, 2014 (UTC)Kristian/Anders

    • * Symbol oppose vote  The US is one nation and this nation can hardly be attributed 100% of the worlds waste. If the government of a developing country accepts a deal that is harmful for its people, it is its own responsibility. Their hand was not forced.--Mojojojo89 (talk) 11:36, January 24, 2014 (UTC)
