The Wristband Gap, Part 2
The Wristband Gap, Part 2 - Awareness bracelets and the tragedy of the commons. By Timothy Noah: "As the varieties of these bracelets have proliferated during recent months, the charitable impulse that is their ostensible reason for existence has steadily declined.

For instance, a tsunami-relief bracelet costs $2, only half of which goes toward relieving problems caused by the recent massive tidal wave in southern Asia. But that's still better than the 10-percent cut that tsunami victims receive when you buy your bracelet on something called AwarenessDepot.com, where you can also purchase 'USA' bracelets, 'Jesus Loves You' bracelets, and 'God Bless the Dead' bracelets."
