The Party's Over: How the West Went Bust (2-part series - Enhanced DVD)
Robert Peston explores the behaviors and attitudes that resulted in increased economic instability for the Western World. In the process, he also mentions Deng Xiaoping’s actions that provided China access to foreign capitalism. In addition, he covers the rise of the West’s free market revolution pushed by Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan and compares the lives of British and Chinese workers within a specific company.
Viewers will gain a more global perspective that extends beyond the Western Hemisphere. They will also have a better understanding of how the United States’ increased spending, rising consumerism and mounting debt affects the rest of the world.
So much more needs to be explored, and this video can provide some of the answers people need.
