Some people feared globalization and questioned the benefits. Others welcomed it. Vice President: Millions of people a day are better off than they would have been without those trade developments, without globalization. And very few people have been harmed by it. Can our now deeply interconnected world surmount a global downturn and rise above other crises?
And is global terrorism the dark side of the promise of globalization? President, You can't get away from the fact that globalization makes us interdependent. So it's not an option to shed it. So is it going to be on balance positive or negative? NARRATOR: This is the story of how the new global economy was born, a century-long battle as to which would control the commanding heights of the world's economies -- governments or markets; the story of intellectual combat over which economic system would truly benefit mankind; the story of epic political struggles to implant those ideas on the nations of the world.
The market economy, the capitalist system, became the only model for the vast majority of the world. Chapter 2: The Old Order Fails . German bombers will pound another British city tonight. Onscreen title: Cambridge University, During the blitz, the two most important economists of the age shared air-warden duty on the roof of King's College, an English gentleman and an Austrian exile -- personal friends, but intellectual rivals.
How their battle of ideas still shapes our life and society is our story. John Maynard Keynes helped the allied governments defend freedom by planning their wartime economies. Friedrich von Hayek thought government interference in the economy was a threat to freedom. For decades, the ideas of John Maynard Keynes dominated the economies of the Western world.
Therefore the government had to step in. Hayek felt that the market would eventually take care of itself. Every day life was being transformed everywhere. Technologies like the telegraph and the telephone revolutionized communications. Steamships and railways made the world a smaller place. Tens of millions migrated without the need for passports. Keynes described this global market in which trade flowed freely. Militarism and imperialism of racial and cultural rivalries were little more than the amusements of his daily newspaper.
What an extraordinary episode in the economic progress of man was that age which came to an end in August It would be almost 80 years before there was once again a truly global economy. World War I destroyed 20 million lives. It laid a whole continent to waste. There was blood and carnage amidst the beauty of the Italian Alps, where the armies of Austria and Italy were fighting. Friedrich von Hayek served in the Austrian artillery.
He was only 17 years old -- still a schoolboy. The fighting was ferocious. He experienced retreat and defeat. It's bound to draw your attention to the problems of political organization. People were disillusioned. People were bitter. They were looking for something better. Socialism, communism seemed to promise that better world.
Onscreen title: St. Inspired by the economic theories of Karl Marx, the Bolsheviks sought to smash capitalism. Lenin, the revolution's leader, urged the workers of the world to unite against the global economy. The revolution made trade, commerce, and private property criminal acts. Lenin promised to end the economic exploitation of man by man.
Onscreen title: Cambridge University, The man who was destined to be Hayek's great intellectual rival was a brilliant young academic at Cambridge University. But John Maynard Keynes was much more than that. He befriended writers and artists. One painted these murals for him. He was also a familiar figure in the City of London, where he made a fortune in the stock market, lost it all, and made it back again.
Familiar with politicians and prime ministers, Keynes spent the first world war advising the British government on how to organize its wartime economy. At the end of the war, Keynes joined the British peace delegation at Versailles in France. The victorious allies wanted defeated Germany to pay the costs of the war through what were called reparations. Keynes: All the statesmen of Versailles could think about was how to squeeze money out of an already bankrupt Germany. Back in England, he went to stay with his friend, the painter Duncan Grant.
Nothing can delay that final war that will destroy the civilization and progress of our generation. Chapter 3: Communism on the Heights .
Vienna was a cold and hungry city. Revolution was in the air. Socialists and Communists were winning the battle for hearts and minds.
Young and idealistic, Friedrich von Hayek enrolled at the University of Vienna. I really got hooked. There were informal seminars for those who loved discussion and argument. Hayek joined the circle of a passionate libertarian called Ludwig von Mises. Von Mises believed markets, like people, needed to be free from government meddling. The distinguishing hallmark of the Austrian school of economic thought is that markets work and governments don't.
DANIEL YERGIN: What von Mises said is that the great flaw of socialism is that it doesn't have a functioning price system to send all the signals to consumers and producers as to what something is worth; that these prices are at the very heart of what makes a functioning economy work. You can think of them as traffic signals. And if you don't have them, what you get is a system that doesn't work, or you get chaos. Lenin had abolished what he saw as the chaos of free markets. The state controlled the economy.
Wages and prices were fixed. But the great Marxist experiment was in trouble. Lenin had an economic disaster on his hands. Soviet Russia was a grim place, haunted by cold, famine, hunger, and death. Lenin says farmers can sell their own goods and own their own land. He says that small businesses can operate, and you start to get an economic revival.
Well, his comrades on the left attacked him viciously for selling out the principles of Bolshevism and Marxism. And Lenin, who by this time had already had a stroke and was not well, nevertheless pulled himself up on the platform for one of the very last times in his life, and he was still the old Lenin.
He was vitriolic; he was sarcastic. His critics, he said, were fools, were stupid, because the state, the government, the Bolsheviks would control the overall economy: steel, railroads, coal, the heavy industries -- what he called the "commanding heights" of the economy.
The mourners at Lenin's funeral believed that history was on their side, and in less than 30 years, not only Russia, but Eastern Europe, China -- more than a third of humanity -- would be living according to the economic tenets of Marxist Leninism. Lenin's successor would tighten the Communist Party's iron grip on the commanding heights of the economy. Joseph Stalin introduced central planning. Under him, the Communist Party planned and managed every aspect of the economy.
While communism seemed to be forging ahead, capitalism looked to be doomed. Chapter 4: A Capitalist Collapse . Forced to pay unbearable war reparations, the defeated governments simply printed more money. The result: inflation, more inflation, hyperinflation. It took a basket full of paper money to go shopping.
Money was cheaper than wallpaper. Million-mark notes lit stoves. Shoes that cost 12 marks in sold for 32 trillion marks in In Hitler's favorite beer keller, a glass of beer cost a billion marks. Hyperinflation wiped out the savings of the middle class.
They got support from these people who lost their fortunes. The fight against inflation became a cornerstone of his economic philosophy. Americans were spending money. They were dancing.

At its centre have always been questions of human welfare and how these might be related to state behaviour and corporate interests in different parts of the world. Despite this, major approaches in the field have often focused more on the international system perspective.
Some people feared globalization and questioned the benefits. Others welcomed it. Vice President: Millions of people a day are better off than they would have been without those trade developments, without globalization. And very few people have been harmed by it.

The economies of India and China have grown rapidly over the past couple of decades, and it is widely accepted that these two emerging giants will transform the global economy in numerous ways over the coming decades. Despite the importance of these countries, their strengths and weaknesses, the sources of their growth, and the missing ingredients to sustain high growth rates—are not widely known. The speakers in the session, which was moderated by STEP board member David Morgenthaler, made it clear that although the economic growth of India and China has indeed been impressive, it has also been uneven, with some economic sectors developing more rapidly than others.

ТРАНСТЕКСТ заклинило на восемнадцать часовМысль о компьютерном вирусе, проникшем в ТРАНСТЕКСТ и теперь свободно разгуливающем по подвалам АНБ, была непереносима. - Я обязан об этом доложить, - сказал он вслух. В подобной ситуации надо известить только одного человека - старшего администратора систем безопасности АНБ, одышливого, весящего четыреста фунтов компьютерного гуру, придумавшего систему фильтров Сквозь строй.
Не спуская со Стратмора ледяного взгляда, Сьюзан сделала шаг вперед и протянула к нему руку с зажатым в ней предметом. Стратмор был почти уверен, что в руке Сьюзан сжимала беретту, нацеленную ему в живот, но пистолет лежал на полу, стиснутый в пальцах Хейла. Предмет, который она держала, был гораздо меньшего размера. Стратмор опустил глаза и тут же все понял. Время для него остановилось.
Наконец канадец опомнился. - Из консульства? - Его тон заметно смягчился.
Все это было так неестественно, так непохоже на Хейла, а список преступлений больше напоминал перечень сданного в прачечную белья. Он признался во всем - в том, как понял, что Северная Дакота всего лишь призрак, в том, что нанял людей, чтобы те убили Энсея Танкадо и забрали у него кольцо, в том, что столкнул вниз Фила Чатрукьяна, потому что рассчитывал продать ключ от Цифровой крепости. Сьюзан дошла до последней строки.
Этим я и занимался сегодня весь день - считывал тексты с его терминала, чтобы быть наготове, когда он сделает первый шаг, чтобы вмонтировать этот чертов черный ход. Вот почему я скачал на свой компьютер его электронную почту. Как доказательство, что он отслеживал все связанное с Цифровой крепостью. Я собирался передать всю эту информацию в прессу. Сердце у Сьюзан бешено забилось.
Чатрукьян еще раз обвел глазами пустую лабораторию и нахмурился. - Где же он, черт возьми. Глядя на оживающий монитор, он подумал, известно ли Стратмору, что в лаборатории систем безопасности нет ни души.
Консульство этого так не оставит. - Надеюсь. - Месье Клушар.
В тексте названы Хиросима и Нагасаки, города, разрушенные атомными бомбами. Может быть, ключ связан с количеством человеческих жертв, оценочной суммой нанесенного ущерба в долларах… - Она замолчала, снова вчитываясь в текст. - Слово разница особенно важно. Главная разница между Хиросимой и Нагасаки. По-видимому, Танкадо считал, что два эти события чем-то различались между .
Скажи, Танкадо действительно умер от сердечного приступа или же его ликвидировал кто-то из ваших людей. - Ты совсем ослепла. Как ты не понимаешь, что я ко всему этому непричастен. Развяжи .
Миллион песет? - предложил Беккер.
