Economic GapsStreaming Video - 2012
Welcome to Beverly Hills, California, where some of America's wealthiest citizens have created their own personal versions of paradise. But don't get too comfortable-this program whisks viewers off to Mexico City and Lilongwe, Malawi, as well, showing how different life can be in all three parts of the world and how globalization has amplified the economic gaps between them. In addition, the film provides an extensive analysis of the development of the global economy through compelling historical narratives-including the Spanish colonization of Central America, spearheaded by Hernan Cortes in an effort to find cheap trading silver, and the crucial role of child labor and forced trade agreements in the rise of British economic might.
