Global Health or Global Wealth?

Program #DANK004. Recorded in Seattle, WA on May 21, 2003.

There's one global economic model that creates wealth for the few, at the expense of the many. In that model, a country's resources and the labor of its people exist to deliver products with the lowest possible cost and the highest possible profit. That profit goes into the pockets of corporate executives and shareholders. The people and the planet are secondary considerations. But there is another model, where wealth is shared and where economic decisions are based on fairness and sustainability. Successful grassroots efforts are underway around the globe to make this vision a reality.
