Jamaica became an independent country from Great Britain in 1962. It is the land of sea, sand and sun, but it is also a prime example of the complexities of economic globalization on the world's developing countries. Effectively portrays the relationship between Jamaican poverty and the practices of international lending agencies, such as the International Monetary Fund, while driving home the devastating consequences of globalization.

I loved this film!
Real life examples of how trade agreements and the powerful global elite negatively impact everyday people. A good portrayal of the trade inequalities inherent in "free" trade agreements.

The DVD must be scratched, encountered numerous freezes while trying to watch. The premise was intriguing, and despite the anti-Western tone of the narrator would have been keen to be able to see this one through.
