Beads! We know the story well. Four hundred years ago, the Whites came across a new continent, a big one, and needed a massive workload to properly dominate it’s resources. They certainly didn’t ponder this issue long. Hmmm...who could we work the hardest and pay the least? “I know”, said a white man with a white wig, “Got any shiny beads?” The Africans fell for the bead trick. So did the Indians. So did the Mayans, Incans, and Aborigines. Damn beads!
