Unfortunately there hasn’t been much in terms of rigorous study on the topic, aside from an in-depth reprot from Oxfam, making it difficult to know what the aggregate effects are. Please note that there have been at least two peer-reviewed studies on the aggregate effects of used clothing exports to developing countries.Most recently: Frazer, G. (2008). Used-clothing donations and apparel production in Africa. The Economic Journal, 118(October), 1764-1784. This article examines the importance of one possible explanation for the failure of African countries to step onto the bottom rung of the manufacturing sophistication ladder, that is to produce apparel. Used-clothing donations to thrift shops and other organisations in industrialised countries typically end up being sold to consumers in Africa. Since used clothing is initially provided as a donation, it shares characteristics with food aid, which always assists consumers, but at times harms African food producers. Used-clothing imports are found to have a negative impact on apparel production in Africa, explaining roughly 40% of the decline in production and 50% of the decline in employment over the period 1981–2000. And a little older: Haggblade, S. (1990). The flip side of fashion: Used clothing exports to the third world. Journal of Development Studies, 26(3), 505-521. Since the early 1970s, western countries have increasingly recycled their second-hand clothes by exporting to the Third World. In response, some LDC governments have banned used clothing importstoprotecttheirdomestictextileindustries.Thisarticle, after reviewing the structure and evolution of world used clothing trade, examines the consequences for Africa's largest importer, Rwanda. In this low-income country, with its small domestic textile industry, displacement is minimal and imported used clothing offers a modest but rare policy leverfor directly increasing nationalincome as well as incomesof the rural poor. I hope this will contribute to the debate.

Could have been much better if you foeuscd on the Clothing companies as the titles of the vids say and give in depth details. Instead you went at everything, it's appreciated but do you know how many people already have videos of the same exact things you have? I've been seeing the same things for the last couple of months now, we need new content up on youtube. And stop distorting the vids so much, it's very repetitive and takes up video time that could be devoted to another peace of info.
