Globalization for Dummies

It’s likely that you missed the excellent PBS series on the history of 20th Century economics, Commanding Heights. Fortunately, the series is also available online, in one of the best uses of broadband we’ve seen in a while. The series takes an impossibly complex set of problems, and lays them out in an accessible and valuable way. Spend some time with this series before you get comfortable with your ideas about globalization and its consequences. As an added bonus, it’s narrated by David Ogden Stiers whose dulcet tones graced Rick Burns’ New York series.
