When a person is harmed economically, not given his due share or legitimate employment or earning it is economic violence.

Bonded labor, high interest rates on loan to poor people, deprivation of opportunity to learn higher paying skills, fraud, bribery etc. are some examples.

Taking advantage of real shortages or creating artificial shortages that result in increasing prices harm the affected people economically.

Very high fees of good education and health facilities that a needy person can’t afford harms them because of their economic position.

Paying very low prices to farmers or workers because they have no option harms them. Increasing prices of make many of the things beyond the reach of normal people also harms them.
