Drawing from his new book, The Good Life, Vanderbilt anthropologist Edward Fischer examines the culture, ethics, and economics of commodity chains. Fischer explores how peoples’ lives and aspirations for the good life get attached to things and global value chains. He also makes a case for what anthropology can contribute to public policy debates.
