Commanding heights : the battle for the world economy( Visual )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 20th century, most of the world's nations tried to create prosperity through government control of their economies-from the totalitarian central planning of the communist world to more democratic nations that tried to develop their economies by nationalizing industries and protecting them from foreign competition. But in the 1980s those policies began to fail dramatically, and the fall of the Berlin Wall unleashed an era of dramatic and turbulent worldwide economic reform. This episode tells the story of the downfall of those economies and how new leaders embraced the idea of "shock therapy"--A rapid conversion to free-market capitalism. The program focuses in detail on how reform played out in several countries-Russia, Poland, India, Bolivia, and Chile-as they lived through the upheavals of rapid change, dealing with both the new freedoms and the new dangers of privatization, deregulation, and freewheeling competition

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This series explores our changing economic world: the clash between governments and the marketplace, the debate over the impact of globalization, and the forces shaping our future economy.

The program also discusses two important economists of this era: John Maynard Keynes, who advocated government intervention to control the booms and busts of capitalist economies, and Friedrich von Hayek, who argued that government intervention in the economy would erode human freedom and was doomed to failure
