Is the best way of voting thoughtfully choosing what you spend your money on?
I find it difficult to believe that my political vote makes a difference (don't worry, I still do it). That's a different story when I spend my money. I feel like I am directly contributing to a "cause". When I hear of a company that treats its workers exceptionally well or has a functional program to lessen its negative impact on the environment it definitely makes me want to choose their products even if they cost a little more. So, in a free market economy, is the socially conscious educated consumer essential to a better society? Or, is this impossible because of a prevailing 'cheaper is better' mindset?
