(Text only in English)
Few days after Black Friday, we would like to share the interview with Olena Komisarenko, a doctoral student at the Pontifical University of St Thomas Aquinas, in Rome. From her own work experience, Olena warns us about the industrial system animated by simple profit at all costs and invites us to assess, in consumer choices, not only the price of the product but also its social value as well as the environmental impact of production processes, the relations with suppliers, and the working conditions.
Olena was born in modern day Ukraine in 1989. “More recently – she says – I graduated in Economics and Management at the Angelicum. I have two previous degrees, one in International Relations, and the other in Management of Organizations that I studied for in Ukraine. I have worked for over two years in Asia, in Vietnam and China. I have been living in Italy for over 5 years”
