Description:
  In this hard-hitting documentary about the perils and promises of globalization, Nobel laureate Joseph E. Stiglitz takes a tour of the world which starts in his hometown of Gary, Indiana.

As we travel the globe, Stiglitz explains that globalization is not only a story of environmental disaster and pressure on wages and working standards. There are countries which have managed globalization well and have found ways to make it work. Governments who are aware of the potential dangers on unfettered markets, environmental degradation and the limits to free trade can choose a path that works for them and that will ultimately benefit hundreds of millions of people around the world.

This illuminating documentary - featuring one of the great minds of the twentieth century - is ultimately a message of hope.
