    are either owned by Bangladeshi "elite" or foreign businessmen. I happen to know a few of them personally. I was on vacation in Vegas two years ago with my family where we met up with one of the vacationing megamoguls of Bangladesh. He brought they rest of the megamoguls and their families in tow. It was quite a spectacle. They are VERY RICH.

    They supply companies like Walmart, Tommy Hilfiger, etc. The big multinationals do not own the sweatshops directly. They place orders for their garments to the lowest bidder (i.e., the cheapest labor rates).

    Yes, Bangladesh has a whole lot of natural gas. Everyone wants to cut a deal for that gas.
