Think Global

Here is what the New York Times has to say today about the "Think Global" public radio series:
"This weekend, public radio wraps up "Think Global," ( an ambitious, weeklong examination of globalization that includes contributions from public radio stations and independent producers.
Regular programs, like "Talk of the Nation" on National Public Radio, were devoted to the topic, and several documentaries were also produced.
One of those was "Global 3.0," by American Public Media (the national public broadcaster that didn't receive $200 million from the estate of Joan B. Kroc, widow of the McDonald's founder).
The program starts from the should-be-obvious premise that globalization creates both winners and losers, and it's not always easy to tell which is which. Chris Farrell of "Sound Money" and Robert Krulwich, a correspondent for ABC News, the hosts, present deeply reported material with a breezy familiarity that never strays too far. The Web component is packed with useful links, as well as audio that can be downloaded and the program transcript."
This is the link to this item which appears in a longer "What's Online" column.
