WHERE IS THE WORLD GOING, MR. STIGLITZ?

WHERE IS THE WORLD GOING, MR. STIGLITZ?

"Stiglitz is able to cut through the jargon and explain the complex in simple terms," says USA Today, and Howard Zinn praises Stiglitz's presentation for being "imbued with a powerful social conscience." In a sustained argument (conveniently sliced into 42 DVD chapters that address specific economic topics and case studies), the Nobel Prize–winning economist discusses how globalization could benefit rich and poor alike, exposes the mechanisms by which wealthy nations and corporations have enriched themselves at the expense of the world's poor, and draws hopeful lessons from the few cases in which globalization has lived up to its promise. Major topics: globalization's successes and failures, legal underpinnings, financial market mechanisms, environmental impact, and effects on developing countries. Grades 9 and up. Color. 380 minutes. First Run Features. ©2007.
