In 2004, CNBC's David Faber gave viewers an unprecedented look inside the world's largest retailer in The Age of Wal-Mart (item 39101). Following up five years later, Faber examines Walmart in a much different context - one shaped by increased criticism, an onslaught of lawsuits, and a plummeting stock price, all of which have prompted a quest for re-invention among the highest levels of the company. This CNBC report describes Walmart's realization that it was losing eight percent of its customers due to bad publicity - and how it undertook an extreme makeover of its image and stores. Also explored in the video: political currents running counter to Walmart's low-cost business model, the retailer's growing presence in China, and the controversy over its ongoing U.S. expansion - which some communities have forestalled or even prohibited

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Irrepressible, irascible, and iconic, Steve Jobs reigned as the undisputed king of Silicon Valley for the better part of three decades. From his parents' California garage he launched the personal computer revolution and built Apple into the most envied and valuable technology company in the world. From the Macintosh and the iPod to the iPhone and iPad, Jobs personally presided over the creation of dozens of transformational devices-while battling hostile corporate boards, cutthroat competitors, and a serious illness along the way. CNBC offers a retrospective of Jobs's career-including the creation of Apple, its ascent under his visionary direction, and the evolution of his management style, which, although famous for its confrontational nature, secured his legacy as one who dared to "Think Different

Featuring case studies of events prompted by Facebook, including an account of a girl reunited with her birth mother as well as a woman who lost her job due to online postings, the program explores the intense privacy debate that Facebook has provoked while shedding light on the ubiquitous appeal of the Facebook profile-a template of self-expression deployed (in diverse ways) from your local police station to the White House

As Seen on TV : Rise of the Infomercial( Visual )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether it's a blanket with sleeves or a super-absorbent towel, the infomercial industry continues to convince millions of us to hand over our hard-earned money for stuff we had no idea we ever needed. This CNBC Original documentary takes a behind-the-scenes look at the infomercial-maker's bag of tricks and shows how, even in today's troubled economy, the industry just keeps on growing. Viewers enter the high-pressure world of direct response commercials that have made Snuggie, ShamWow, and the Ginsu Knife household names.

Rethinking work( Visual )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite enormous advances in technology, our workplaces are not nearly as efficient as they could be. Each week, more than 40 percent of employees make use of flawed information systems-and flawed information-to make decisions. The results are wasted time and squandered resources. From smarter collaboration to smoother travel, this CNBC program explores ways in which "wiser work" can lead to greater prosperity for businesses and organizations. Experts interviewed include James Surowiecki, financial journalist for The New Yorker and author of The Wisdom of Crowds, and Gordon Bethune, former CEO of Continental Airlines and former vice-president and general manager of the Boeing Commercial Airplanes Group's customer services division
Redefining Health Care( Visual )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Providing comprehensive public access to affordable, quality health care is a mammoth struggle-even for wealthy societies with the political will to do so. This CNBC program looks at technological solutions that could potentially slash medical costs, reduce inefficiencies, and create tailor-made treatments for the individual patient. The program begins by exploring issues in personalized medicine, then moves on to improvements in diagnosis, treatment, health care delivery systems, and the insurance industry. Expert commentary comes from Dr. Steven Nissen, chairman of the Cleveland Clinic's Department of Cardiovascular Medicine; Tim Brown, CEO of the innovation consulting firm IDEO; Dr. Arthur Caplan, director of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania; and Dr. Bernadine Healy, health editor for U.S. News & World Report
The Bubble Decade : America's Economy after 2000( Visual )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first ten years of the 21st century formed one of the most dramatic periods in American economic history-a time of ambition, innovation, excess, and implosion. In this CNBC Original documentary, award-winning correspondent David Faber examines the three economic bubbles that defined the decade. Beginning with the tech bubble, Faber looks at AOL's audacious 2001 takeover of Time Warner, a deal that signified the ultimately fruitless hopes of the dot-com craze. The decade's middle years brought the housing boom and the real estate bubble, with banks eagerly funding new construction and developers and homeowners jumping at loans they couldn't afford. The final bubble Faber examines is the credit fiasco, exemplified by private equity deals and leveraged buyouts which saw targeted companies loaded up with debt and ruined. Profiling Internet entrepreneurs, real estate speculators, and corporate takeover specialists, Faber also moderates two panels of experts and key players

Reshaping Cities by CNBC (Television network)( Visual )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to some estimates, the equivalent of seven New York Cities are added to our planet's population every year-an apt term of measurement, since the growth is mostly in urban areas. Can an already crowded metropolis survive under the strain? This CNBC program explores the intelligent city's answer: we will not only survive, we will flourish. From transportation to public safety to self-aware buildings and smart grids, viewers discover the systems that can make cities of the future both successful and sustainable.

CNBC Titans : Ted Turner( Visual )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It makes sense that "The Mouth of the South," as he is often called, made his fortune with the first 24-hour news source. But for Ted Turner, founding CNN-which would become the crown jewel in a colossal media empire-was only one step in his quest for greatness. Turner would shrug off the effects of the most disastrous corporate merger in history to tirelessly pursue his dream of a better world. CNBC tells the story of the man who jump-started the cable revolution with a groundbreaking news channel, eventually dominating the media landscape and forever altering the world of TV journalism. But the second chapter in Turner's life is also included, depicting his work as a conservationist and environmental advocate, a leader of projects against hunger and nuclear weapons, and (last but not least) a competitive sailor
Stolen Goods : Crime Incorporated-The Underground Economy( Visual )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a complex web of robbery and reselling-via black-market buyers, shady Internet sites, and even legitimate businesses-the traffic in purloined goods rakes in billions each year. This CNBC program examines the world of organized stealing, in which the largest and most lucrative target is retail, sustaining losses of more than $30 billion annually. But large-scale thievery can happen anywhere: cargo theft is one of the fastest-growing crimes in America, with merchandise stolen in bulk from shipping containers, warehouses, and tractor-trailers. The business of home burglaries is also booming. A huge threat comes from organized gangs who make a living hitting multiple homes every week. Last but not least, vehicle theft costs Americans an estimated $5.2 billion per year and nets hundreds of millions in profits
CNBC titans : Procter & Gamble( Visual )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only in America could two immigrants, an English candle-maker and an Irish soap-maker, create what would become the most powerful consumer goods company in history. In the 1830s, when William Procter and James Gamble founded the company that would bear their names, they could never have envisioned that one day their products would touch everything from babies' bottoms to ladies' eyebrows. With intimate interviews and unprecedented access to legendary former CEOs John Pepper and A.G. Lafley, as well as with chief executive Bob McDonald, CNBC pulls back the curtain for an inside look at Procter & Gamble. The 79-billion-dollar behemoth is often analyzed in the context of its popular brands, such as Pampers, Bounty, and Tide, but a recent strategy rethink suggests there's an advantage to branding Procter & Gamble itself
Rebuilding America : meeting of the minds( Visual )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Expert panelists include Bill Ford, executive chairman of the Ford Motor Company; Jeff Immelt, chairman and CEO of GE; Leo W. Gerard, international president of United Steelworkers; and John Engler, president and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers
Ford : Rebuilding an American Icon( Visual )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This CNBC Original documentary goes behind the scenes at the Ford Motor Company to illustrate its astonishing comeback just a few short years after a near collapse. Viewers meet Ford's CEO, Alan Mulally, who in 2006 mortgaged all of the company's assets in his quest to steer it back from the brink -- a controversial maneuver at the time, but one that proved sensible when Ford rescued itself without a government bailout (unlike rivals General Motors and Chrysler). Granted remarkable access to the company's inner workings, CNBC's Phil LeBeau introduces viewers to an unlikely pair of engineers charged with breathing new life into a legendary but tarnished Ford nameplate, the Explorer. The program also profiles the Ford family -- which, unlike many other famous clans in American business, keeps a firm grip on its corporate birthright
PressPausePlay : the Digital Revolution and the Changing Creative Landscape( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The digital revolution has nourished creativity in an unprecedented way and has made available unlimited creative opportunities. But does democratized creative expression mean better art, film, music, and literature, or is true talent drowned in the digital ocean of uncurated mass mediocrity? That is the question addressed in this intriguing film by influential creatives and visionaries of the digital era. Musician/DJ Moby, best-selling author Seth Godin, music journalists Brenda Walker and Christopher Weingarten, filmmaker Lena Dunham, singer/songwriter Lykke Li, author/speaker Andrew Keen, tech entrepreneur Sean Parker, indie band Hot Chip, and many others speak with passion and candor about the digitization of culture as it has evolved thus far-and whether the trend is toward an ever-expanding galaxy of diamonds or a vast expanse of garbage

Competition from Chinese automakers is also a topic."--Container
