Who are the real beneficiaries of the globalized economy? Who really rules the world now? Governments or a handful of huge corporations? The film looks at the new rulers of the world – great multinationals and the governments and institutions that back them - the IMF and the World Bank. The reality behind much of modern shopping and the famous brands is the loss of millions of jobs, and a sweatshop economy duplicated in country after country. Directed and presented by John Pilger, 53 mins, 2002. Followed by group discussion
