Download Hour1 Download Hour2 This week we look at biotechnology, its claims and its context: the economic and political structures of global capitalism and the profit motive. In our first hour, a presentation by British anti-biotech activist and author Luke Anderson. In our second hour, a report on the recent WTO meeting in Qatar by Canadian anti-corporate globalization activist Maude Barlow, and an analysis of the system of global capitalism from one of its opponents, British political scientist Alex Callinicos.
