This is the best of many good videos from Izzit on the topics of globalization, capitalism, and the rule of law. Hernando De Soto does a superb job in explaining the role of each of these and their importance in the development of nations around the world. Highly recommended.

This video is a great resource to use in my course's exploration of economic globalism. It was helpful in dispelling myths about the problem of globalization and in provoking thought about possible solutions.

Students found the video intriguing to watch and compelling. They did not know people around world do not have the same access to products that are easily available to anyone in this country, or other developed countries. Spurred dicussions on the differences of capitalism and socialist economies and why things were so different.

My students are always ready to give negative feedback when a video is introduced BEFORE I press play. BUT, Market Without Borders provided them with a better understanding of what is happening in the world and how globalization can affect them. They were amazed at the craftmanship of people shown in this video. It was a great eye-opener for them.
