Commanding Heights: The Battle For The World Economy

"Commanding Heights: The Battle For The World Economy" was a six-hour special on the world economy on PBS in the Spring of 2002 (which was based on a book by Daniel Yergin and Joseph Stanislaw in 1998). It explores both the ideas of trade and recent events. The supplementary material here includes country reports, interviews with more than 100 people, and background on the ideas behind international trade and economic growth. There are many multimedia resources.
