Movie Details

Part of the People's Century series, Fast Forward documents how technology and economics have combined to make the business world a smaller place. The film boasts footage of Shanghai's stock market, explains how e-commerce is allowing business successes that would have been unthinkable a decade before, and explains the economic conditions that led to the horrific "ethnic cleansing" in Bosnia. This is a fine, informative film for those with an interest in the subject matter, as well as for teachers who may find it useful in a classroom setting. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
