Globalisation

Shoptalk looks at a subject that most of us in Britain have benefitted from, but which nonetheless has aroused large amounts of fear, anger and hatred. Globalisation means you can buy cheap clothes from China and supermarket beans from Tanzania. It also means that when you contact your mobile phone help line you'll be answered in India, and if you live in a developing country you may have either more work, or none at all. So is globalisation a force for good or for destruction? And can it last anyway in the face of rising oil prices?

GUESTS

Margaret Doyle, editor of Global Agenda
Lord Giddens, (Professor Anthony Giddens) sociologist and former director of London School of Economics and BBC Reith Lecturer on Globalisation
James Howard Kunstler, journalist and author of The Long Emergency
