6 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

With dowries reaching fifty percent of a family's income, a second daughter is often called "the girl born for the burial pit. This program assesses second- and third-world abuses of women's rights by the male establishment-and examines how female collaboration sometimes contributes to their perpetuation. Feminist Taslima Nasreen; the author of Brides Are Not for Burning; and others speak out on topics such as dowry deaths, female circumcision, the Islamic zina law, the rigors of hijab, and child prostitution. But does the banding together of women against female infanticide in Tamil Nadu spell the beginning of a women's solidarity movement and a new world order?

Globalization at a crossroads( Visual )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 437 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

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
