48). 34 2 Exploitation Carling adds another approach to determining the existence or otherwise of exploitation in an exchange, by asking two questions. Firstly, does one individual or group gain an advantage at the expense of another? Secondly he asks a normative question, namely is this advantage unjustly obtained? (Carling 1998, p. 220) The second question is more complex, and usually involves an analysis of what is meant by gain at the expense of another. One school of thought holds that such transactions are exploitative and wrong when and because they are coercive of the weaker party (Buchanan 1979; Schwartz 1995), whilst others hold that the wrongfulness lies in its degrading of the victims; when they are treated simply as means, not as ends (Wood 1995).
