    From executions in Nigeria to riots in Indonesia, this video examines the impact of "globalization," the economic engine that is rocking financial systems worldwide, and questions whether or not economic trade can be linked to human rights and democracy, whether it is possible for profits and principles to coexist. In addition to interviews with philanthropist George Soros, consumer advocate Ralph Nader, AFL-CIO head John Sweeney, U.S. Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, Amnesty International's Pierre Sane, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, among others, the video covers the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, the first global march against child labor, labor unrest in Nigeria's Shell Oil fields, South Africa's gold mines, and factories in Indonesia.
