Globalization at a crossroads( Visual )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To some, the term 'globalization' means ruthless exploitation by corporations; to others, it means bringing economic development to all the peoples of the world. This program explains key principles at the core of global economics and takes a historical look at their effects, focusing on market liberalization and the failed 'East Asian miracle'; privatization of basic resources in Bolivia and the severe backlash against it; Russia's rapid transition to capitalism and the oligarchism and kleptocracy that came to characterize it; and China's incremental implementation of capitalism under communism. The video also takes stock of the seismic shift in the U.S. economy and its probable effect on the rest of the world."--Container

9 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout Africa, democracy has long been touted as the cure for the continent's ongoing unrest. But can such a form of government flourish in countries where extreme poverty is the norm and violence is the chief tool of statecraft? Spanning the continent from Libya to South Africa, this program seeks to understand Africa's complex political situations, addressing the "Big Man" syndrome and the one-party state, the destabilizing effects of armed conflict, the mismanagement of industry and natural resources, and strained relations with the industrialized world
Global capital market : risks and rewards( Visual )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program illustrates the flow of international capital, analyzes the risks it presents to banking and currency systems, and studies international political structures created to address those risks. The video presents the pros and cons of financial globalization, in the process explaining the concepts of inter-temporal trade, portfolio diversification, income inequality, and capital inflow and outflow. Recounting fiscal catastrophes that provoked international alarm-including the 1995 Mexican peso crisis and the 1997 implosion of Asian economies that impacted nations across the world-the program draws parallels between our current investment climate and the so-called First Age of Globalization in the late 19th century

"To fully understand the recent bloodshed in Kosovo, one must go back 600 years and trace the causes of the undying hatreds that permeate Serbia and the surrounding region. Using eyewitness accounts, maps, and footage both of historic events and of Serbian life, this program examines the ethnic nationalism and religious extremism that have resulted in the long-standing hatred between Serbs and Kosovar Albanians--a hatred that continued to destabilize the Balkans during the Milosevic regime."--Distributor's website
Kashmir : valley of despair( Visual )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The valley of Kashmir is occupied by both India and Pakistan and acts as a buffer zone between these two nuclear powers. The Kashmiri people want an independent, autonomous state, which India refuses to grant. India fears that if Kashmir gains sovereignty, other ethnic minorities may also demand independence. The Kashmiri rebels, backed by Pakistan, and Indian government forces are waging a war of attrition that nobody appears to be winning and which could result in nuclear conflict. This program provides a history and a thorough analysis of the political, religious, and ethnic causes of the Kashmir conflict
Asian values devalued( Visual )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the tiger economies of East Asia turned from boom to bust in the 1990s, the general public was amazed, yet many economists nodded their heads knowingly. This program focuses on the plights of Indonesia, Hong Kong, and Malaysia, where nepotism, cronyism, corruption, suppression, and the exploitation of cheap foreign labor brought about a financial crisis of enormous proportions. These regions grew too quickly without proper controls and economic safeguards, which has left the middle and lower classes, who are crushed by inflation and unemployment, to pay the bill. Experts agree that East Asia will survive, eventually recover, and probably surpass itself, but at a staggering cost in money and human misery. This program is an excellent expose that reveals why the bubble burst
The Global trade debate( Visual )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As tensions mount between big business and an increasingly powerful activist lobby, the gulf between their positions has never been clearer.

Since the founding of the International Monetary Fund, the world has seen a 12-fold increase in global trade. But local economies and the environment have paid a heavy price. Consumers and governments alike must require responsible business practices and cleaner energy, or the global marketplace-potentially beneficial in so many ways-may turn out to be unsustainable

Their parents would like to see them grow up as normal boys, but they're falling into the world of the Aravanis dance troupe. Loved as dance performers but hated as homosexuals, they symbolize the inner conflicts of India's gender culture today. "I felt like a girl when I was seven years old," says Karthik. "Now I find there are many like me!" "I don't want to live a bad life," says Palani, who understands the social exclusion he faces, "I worry about my future." Here is a powerful story of the loss of innocence in a culture struggling to come to terms with homosexuality
