Global Crafts 2 Next to Last Exchange with Renice before BLOCKED

   Posted by: admin   in

This is a faithful account of correspondence between Renice Jones of Global Crafts
and Martin Rizzi, a friend of the craftswomen of Tecalpulco and Taxco El Viejo.
18 December 2017 
Renice Jones (Global Crafts): We pay in pesos but the prices are in USD so the number of pesos paid for a product significantly increased in the last year.
Martin Rizzi: Are you kidding, Renice? Didn’t you hear about the Gasolinazo? (look it up in Wikipedia). EVERY price in Mexico went up 25% in january. This means transport, tortilla dough, baby shoes, medicine, and everything else, except the pay to the craftspeople. Do you REALLY think you have been over-paying them because of currency fluctuations? When the peso goes down, prices rise accordingly, so when the peso goes up, those same high prices poor people have to pay remain in effect. How is this supposed to help the craftperson? it doesn’t. Look. It’s simple. You pay 4 dollars for a pair of stone mosaic earrings, then you pay 6$ for a cup of capuchino. Why not please cut them a little slack?
No reply from Global Crafts.
In retrospect, I can see how my manner of expression was in a tone too rude and self-certain and now I wish I had stated these things in a more restrained way. Yet, the price of everything in Mexico went up 25% in January 2017 and Renice is claiming to me that the craftspeople have made gains on the currency exchange (They did NOT.) There is NO way the artisans are getting more for their products now (in terms of buying power) than they were in recent years. NO WAY. Renice thinks that the currency exchange adjustments somehow profited them. I am sorry but no. The cost of their raw materials has gone up, as has the cost of tortilla dough, beans, chile, baby shoes, transportation, and everything else a poor person needs to live. In a 3rd World country, the advantage of a currency fluctuation is absorbed by brokers, commercial intermediaries, exchange houses; the poor people don’t profit. Besides, that fluctuation Renice is referring to was years ago. It is not true that the artisan’s pay has increased in the years 2015 through 2017.
