Let me say that an "empowerment" survey at my employer probably wouldn't fare any better than the Lindt farmers: do we feel respected or that we have influence? (I consider some hoops i had to jump through to get influence over an obvious-to-me decision, and note that i do have to remind myself i did affect that outcome... but it was in a domain where i feel i ought to be affecting the outcome. So... it was more of an experience of wresting control back....)
Anyhow. After reading several chapters of the dissertation this morning, i can continue to feel comfortable with buying Lindt. (That is, as comfortable as anything i consume from the global markets.)
