    Abstract:
    Globalization's seamless integration of manufacturing across extended supply chains has brought unprecedented efficiency to global economic production. The results often seem magical. Components sourced from dispersed suppliers in multiple countries are assembled into finished goods that arrive miraculously on our doorsteps at the click of a mouse.I Globalization's magic has a less savory side, however. Outsourcing production to overseas suppliers allows manufacturers to save money while rendering the human and environmental costs invisible. Not only do such externalities magically disappear with distance, but a sophisticated corporate shell game ensures that legal accountability for such harms vanishes as well.2
