Director Carole Poliquin visits squatters in Paris, families on welfare in Quebec, factory workers in Thailand, teachers in Ontario, fish processors in Senegal and debt-ridden Mexicans. Also interviewed are market speculators and fund managers who help dictate economies workdwide and yet, for the most part, remain indifferent to the consequences of their actions.
