It utilizes the concept of reverse subsidies as the purchase of gendered labour and environmental services below their costs of production in garment value chains in India and other garment producing countries, such as Bangladesh and Cambodia. Environmental services, such as freshwater for garment manufacture and land for cotton production, are degraded by overuse and untreated waste disposal. The resulting higher profits from the low prices of garments are captured by global brands, using their monopsony position, with few buyers and myriad sellers, in the market. This book links the concept of reverse subsidies with those of injustice, inequality, and sustainability in global production"-- Provided by publisher https://www.cambridge.org/core/books/reverse-subsidies-in-global-monopsony-capitalism/18BACAB68959B6DE39F1A1FDA3534796
