Question description

Note: Even though there are a very large number of links here, they are all quite short, so don't feel intimidated!

Review the websites below and post a 200-300 word reflection.  There are two issues I am most interested in having a discussion about here.  First, who should be held accountable for the tragedy in Bangladesh?  The Bangladesh government?  The factory owner?  The companies that buy from the factory?  Western governments?  Consumers of the final product (i.e. you!).  Secondly, is American Apparel an aberration, or could its model be replicated by more businesses, especially in the clothing/textile industry?  As usual, make your initial post by Friday night and comment on at least two other posts by Sunday night.

Go to American Apparel’s website at http://www.americanapparel.net/ (Links to an external site.)  and check out the following links within the site:

Read an article on American Apparel's filing for bankruptcy at http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/06/business/american-apparel-files-for-bankruptcy.html (Links to an external site.).  

Browse through at least a couple of these articles (they are short news stories) related to the tragic factory collapse that killed hundreds of textile workers in Bangladesh in 2012.

Your initial post should be 200-300 words.
