The Global Trade DebateStreaming Video - 2005

Since the founding of the International Monetary Fund, the world has seen a 12-fold increase in global trade. But local economies and the environment have paid a heavy price. Consumers and governments alike must require responsible business practices and cleaner energy, or the global marketplace-potentially beneficial in so many ways-may turn out to be unsustainable.
