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

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 20 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
