FROM THIS EPISODE
The lords of world capitalism are meeting today in at the World Economic Forum in New York while anarchists, socialists and radicals of all kinds are convening at the World Economic Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The two very different groups share a common interest in corporate globalization and whether it has a future after September 11. As the meetings get underway, we speak with journalists in New York and Porto Alegre. We also examine the future of economic globalization in an era of terrorism, and President Bush's call for spreading Western values to the Muslim world, with political scientists Richard Dekmejian, from the University of Southern California, and Lewis Snider, of Claremont Graduate University's School of Politics and Economics.
