While many nations and communities benefit from the fast track to globalization, others are in danger of being left behind. This program explores concepts embodied in the mantra, "Think globally, act locally," focusing on businesses and organizations that help to revitalize isolated and disadvantaged areas, thereby expanding access to the wider economy. Judy Wicks, founder of Philadelphia's White Dog Cafe, details her company's policy of buying from local farmers, while Shari Berenbach of the Calvert Foundation advocates small business loans and community development corporations. C. K. Prahalad, author of The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid, and Equal Access executive director Ronni Goldfarb also supply valuable insight.
