Globalization : winners and losers( Visual )

"How is business without borders really affecting the world? As Sabeer Bhatia, inventor of Hotmail; Narayan Murthy, founder of Infosys; and other industry leaders attest, globalization has raised the standard of living in developing economies through high-tech opportunities, foreign investment, and debt relief. However, Harvard's Jeffrey Sachs and other experts point out that the world market is being exploited through shortsightedness, including the aggressive deployment of genetically modified crops, environmental negligence, and the abuse of NAFTA. This program--produced in the aftermath of the WTO protests in Seattle--addresses the pros and cons of doing business in the global marketplace"--Container

In this program, financial experts including economist Jeffrey Sachs, Paul Krugman of MIT, and the IMF's Stanley Fischer reveal the IMF's ignorance of basic economic realities at the time of the Asian financial crisis, during which the IMF's one-size-fits-all policy recommendations and faulty judgment worsened the economies it hoped to assist. Issues such as conflicts of interest, charges of corruption, and political heavy-handedness have prompted the CATO Institute and others to call for an end to the IMF, especially in light of the Russian financial fiasco, which left the IMF holding valueless promissory notes worth millions
