Re: Great use for Analytics
In truth, more than a few companies would be happy to wash their hands of this issue. If there is a public list of the "bad guys" they will quickly avoid doing any business with anyone on that list.
Then, if there is ever the hint of a scandal; you will hear them say "This is part of our policy. We don't buy from anyone on the Trafficking list". Having this fig leaf is very important.
But the list won't be better than your credit report. In other words, it's an indicator but it's not perfect. So woe to the companies who happen to be on the list even though they're innocent.
BTW - there will be companies NOT on the list that do have some issues with slavery or human traficking in the real world. Given the difficulty of avoiding this problem today, I doubt customer companies will put more effort into this problem after this tool is widely availalble.
