In the second, Wizards of Money follows the path of gifts that will be given this holiday season ... from China to the US Pacific Coast docks to the retail giant Wal-Mart.
Even now,three years after the protests in Seattle that brought the issue of corporate globalization in to the open in the US, most people who don't use alternative news sources have little idea of the anti-globalization movement's goals. Corporate media, because of its ownership and reliance on advertising has little incentive to discuss the issues outside of the official definitions that describe the WTO and related institutions as being about free trade and investment. For decades, mainstream political rhetoric has equated capitalism, called the free market, with democracy. The anti-globalization movement offers the view that global capitalism is antagonisitic to democracy and that structures such as the WTO are attempting to formally institutionalize capitalism as a de facto world government in which only corporations and their owners have the rights of citizens.
