Supporters of free trade argue that globalization increases economic prosperity as well as opportunity, especially among developing nations. Critics argue that globalization has led to the exploitation of both workers and the environment, while contributing to the destabilization of undeveloped nations. Can free trade enhance civil liberties, lead more efficient allocation of resources, and increase prosperity through globalization? Or are the critics right?

Docutalks was a monthly documentary film series sponsored by the Clemson University Libraries. Films 30-60 minutes long were followed by moderated discussions.
