Slavery in the Modern World brings us another compelling video that talks about the use of Slaves throughout the Modern World and it’s impacts on the economy and the environment. If you think there are no slaves, this video says differently, not only are there slaves there are over 27,000,000 of them worldwide, this stat staggered me when I watched.

This video has some fairly intense pictures and alarming statistics, but it is worth watching. The economic video in the middle is jaw-dropping.

In this moving yet pragmatic talk, Kevin Bales explains the business of modern slavery, a multibillion-dollar economy that underpins some of the worst industries on earth. He shares stats and personal stories from his on-the-ground research — and names the price of freeing every slave on earth right now.

Watch this video, and hope that Frederick Douglas is in the house. My opinion is that slavery has built up the economies of countless “empires” over the ages.
