The New Rulers of the World

  • Published 1 year ago

‘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.
