Global Economic Apartheid
A new world economic order is being fashioned by global corporations. With few restraints and controls, they are able to move capital, jobs and factories to Mexico, China, Honduras and Bangladesh. Of the 100 largest economies in the world, 51 are corporations. Wal-Mart is bigger than 161 countries.
