Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price is a 2005 narrative film by executive Robert Greenwald and Brave New Films. The film introduces a negative picture of Wal-Mart's business hones through meetings with previous workers, little entrepreneurs, and footage of Wal-Mart officials. Greenwald also utilizes measurements mixed between meeting footage, to give a target examination of the impacts Wal-Mart has on people and groups. The film highlights archival footage of Wal-Mart CEO Lee Scott applauding the enterprise at a vast worker tradition, intercut with meetings intended to undercut Scott's announcements. The narrative contends that Wal-Mart comes up short on its specialists, paying them a normal of $17,000 every year (in 2005 dollars). As indicated by the meetings, these wages are too low for representatives to manage the cost of Wal-Mart's wellbeing protection, so administration guides specialists to request government projects, for example, Medicaid. Greenwald additionally asserts that Wal-Mart contracts undocumented specialists for their cleanup groups, paying them well beneath the lowest pay permitted by law. Different reactions of the retail uber chain incorporate Wal-Mart's hostile to union practices, its negative impact on mother and pop stores and little groups, deficient ecological insurance arrangements, and its poor record on laborer's rights in the United States and universally.If you enjoyed this documentary and would like to watch more industry related videos, click here.

The story of modern China told through the eyes of the villagers forced to sell their homes and give up their land to make way for massive urban development. Naturally they are outraged and fearful. Some say they will not bow to the will of the Government, while others ultimately embrace the opportunity to make a fortune. This is China as you've never seen it before: the China that's behind Australia's resources boom.White Horse Village is a tiny farming community deep in rural China. A decade ago, it became part of the biggest urbanisation project in human history that will take half a billion farmers across the country and turn them into city-dwelling consumers. The plan decreed that White Horse Village would grow from several hundred people to a city of 200,000 in under a decade.There's little doubt China's urbanisation is a massive social and economic gamble but, according to the Government, there's a clear logic. At present, 150 million Chinese living in regional areas must leave their families, travel to the cities to work and send money home to help their children survive and prosper. The social tension this creates is significant. To combat this problem, and to try to spread wealth across the country, the Government's plan is to dot the landscape with thousands of new cities. These centres will have new schools, universities and industrial areas all intended to deliver China a thriving, consuming middle class.

Slightly bland and a little boring, this documentary is nonetheless an interesting look into the lives and attitudes of the children of some of the richest people in the world.This documentary was produced by the Heir of the Johnson & Johnson fortune and features some of the most high profile “rich kids”. To be honest, I think I sympathize with some of them.On a final note, I think that this documentary was more of an attempt to brush off the “spoilt little rich kid” stigma from the producer.

‘The New Rulers of the World’ is a documentary film by John Pilger focusing on one such question which the mainstream media does not highlight – the true effects of Globalization.He asks some very penetrating questions such as Who are the real beneficiaries of the globalized economy? Who really rules the world now? Is it governments or a handful of huge companies? He gives examples of big multinational companies like Ford and immensely rich people like Bill gates and contrasts them with Nationns like Africa to bring out the difference and highlights that the divisions between the rich and poor have never been greater — two thirds of the world’s children live in poverty — and the gulf is widening like never before.He talks about Indonesia, which once harped up by The World Bank as a model for the entire world, collapsed in 1998 after the fall of its global economy.The film takes the audience to Indonesia and Washington, exposing the scandals of globalization, including revealing interviews with top officials of the World Bank and the IMF, and shows how the reality behind much of modern shopping and the famous brands is a sweatshop economy, which is being duplicated in country after country.

This incredibly well put together documentary takes a refreshingly non biased approach to explaining exactly what a corporation is, how they came to be and how they are in general independent of human empathy or social responsibility. It sheds them in a light that is easy to understand and easy to picture how they will end up. The Corporation has an all star cast and is well worth the watch as a prelude to most other political documentaries on this site. Enjoy, vote and leave a comment!

Solar PV systems have now made a massive leap in the energy generation field. We have always been hunter gatherers but now it is more hunting for energy and fuel to produce this energy…fossil fuels are so depleted now and we explore the challenge from the alternative. SOLAR ENERGY … and this is Solar energy on a massive scale!!This is a Gigawatt industry in the next few years.Germany is leading the way in the production of this clean quiet energy and the model for this should be adopted by other countries. The growth in this energy sector is expanding at a phenomenal rate and is probably aligned with the subsidies afforded by the German government.This has moved from simple “Idealism” to the much different model of “Money making”… feed in tariffs now make investment in this technology an absolute “No Brainer” for investors.Countries all over the world are now being forced to work towards utilising a renewable green energy.ALL OF THE WORLDS ENERGY CAN BE PROVIDED BY THE USE OF SOLAR — and this can be easily proven. An area the size of France placed in the Sahara could provide ALL of the energy required by ALL of mankind!! Staggering but true.The feed in tariffs in many countries including UK now allow domestic use of solar energy but it is the mass production of massive systems which will go a long way to erradicate the current fossil fuel disaster around the world.Sadly lobbying by petrochemical and nuclear industries are still making this transition possible. Now with the cost of fuel rising frequently and the cost of electricity in your area, solar technology will have to be adopted rather than traditional energy.The technical advances are staggering and the production of the solar cells are becoming much cheaper and more efficient. Add to this the use of specially designed mirrors mean that this is simply a huge potential to make fantastic changes to how the planet is being denuded. This documentary is not a “touchy feely” prediction…this focuses on massive industrial implications with the ultimate that energy costs can only come down due tot he passive nature of the technology….this is a first ever in the history of the world…but possible and probable.There are now solutions which have been studied and developed over 25-30 years and put into large scale manufacture will drive the cost of energy down…this is a revolution. This is being dubbed the ET (Energy Technology) Revolution much bigger than the IT Revolution.The documentary has the feel of the excitement which is being felt and developed in this industry. Conventional power industry is only going to lose out in the future.India is taking up the gauntlet to get a foothold in the provision of energy…they have te capability and the drive to do so.Solar energySolar integrationSolar useSolar was in the past too expensive but it has now dropped in cost by a factor of 10 so is 10 times cheaper and now extremely competitive and clean and limitless.Spain has produced a system producing a massive 300 megawatts solar field based upon solar reflection rather than PV (Photo Voltaic) cells and with the oil prices spiralling they are benefiting every time this happens.A plant in USA has been doing this for over 20 years in Mojava Desert CSPs (Concentrated Solar Plants) have been operating in a private self sustaining setup so this is absolute PROOF that solar is the way ahead and the only reason it has not been undertaken in greater scale because of the petro chemical lobby!!The deserts are destined to become the new generators…and they can also be used to convert salt water into fresh water.The major difficulty is down to the politics surrounding this massive change…the conflict between Petro chemical companies with their lobbying power in worldwide parliaments… and the affordable energy and water distributors.Politics!!!!!! Or do we want a caring compassionate world….we can save the planet….Huge off shore islands are being planned…fantastic ideas shown here…prototypes are actually under construction.We do not wish to become dependent upon monopolies again and the best approach is to have many self producing decentralised power plants. Solar panel on a roll are being produced so they can be rolled out on factory roofs for example.Energy payback is now less than a year making this another no brainer. The documentary debates whethher the energy yield is competitive with bio mass for example…the difference is that solar is 50 times more effective…staggering…and clean.If you wish to read more on this subject please visit http://www.solarenergy.com/There is another fascinating article relating to eco power and sustained living http://www.documentarytube.com/garbage-warrior
