    Well that last part certainly is the backbone of our almost-worldwide capitalist system, he didn't call out capitalism itself but the consequences it's had.

      I think he's being a bit too reductive here, as well. Although, in a perfect society, there would be no poor countries, right now this is the only form of decent employment they can get. There are a few good analyses on both child labor and sweat shops in lesser developed countries. It sounds bad from our POV, but it's better than the alternative--which is starvation--for them. Let me know if you'd like me to link some sources. It's a pretty cool, yet sad, discussion.
