Harrop is way off base regarding Bangladesh

Is Froma Harrop, in “Putting a face to the misery in Bangladesh,” really saying that we should buy clothing made in Bangladesh to help the economy of the people of Bangladesh; that more than 1,000 people dead is OK or acceptable for the sake of improving their economy? I could hardly believe what I was reading. Apparently one woman saved from death and poverty is a sign that we need to keep buying this clothing, not try to get change.
