Thanks for the response, Scott. I would argue that this is even more reason for us to consider carefully what we choose to do. You can see this as a case of WYISATI (what you see is all there is) as Daniel Kahneman calls it in Thinking Fast and Slow: if we only have eye for the supposed injustice of child labour (or worse, for our own warm glow) then we may well be making the wrong choice.
In a way, it’s also a case of bounded rationality — the choice is rational within a restricted frame, but stops being so if additional information is taken into account.
Things are always more complicated than we think
Ain’t that the truth…
