DOCUMENT INFO
Description: To facilitate the process whereby professors can select films depicting globalization for their students, Zaniello has categorized the films according to specific indicators of globalization, such as transnational organizations, global labor, global capital, digitalization, changes in the workplace, outsourcing and offshoring, deregulation and privatization, oil, scarce resources, intellectual property rights, China, containerized shipping, export processing zones, and anti-globalization. Since more than one aspect of globalization is often depicted in a given film, Zaniello highlights the major aspects of globalization in the film reviews, which are presented alphabetically according to the film's title. According to Zaniello, Wal-Mart is the paradigmatic corporation of the twenty-first century, just as the Pennsylvania railroad was in the nineteenth century, General Motors was in the first half of the twentieth, and Microsoft in the second half (p. 5).
