Description

This documentary reveals that poverty is not an accident. It began with military conquest, slavery and colonization and today, global poverty is largely due to wealthy countries exploiting the weaknesses of poor, developing countries.  This video explores why a small percentage of the planet's population uses a large percentage of its resources and consumes more than the planet can regenerate.
