Mark,

This series was produced for Open Learning in Australia. It is very good.
I am not sure if it is available in the U.S. but you could follow that up
with BBC Australia or Open Learning themselves.

Subject: videos on global economy

Hello All,

I am compiling a list of videos that would supplement an undergraduate
course in international business or international marketing. I am looking
for up-to- date titles that would make interesting viewing on topics of
current interest such as European Monetary Union, developing economies,
Asian currency crisis, etc. I have identified three titles so far:

Asian Economies: Toothless Tigers (Insight Media)
Asian Values Devalued and
Singapore: The Price of Prosperity (both from Films for the Humanities &
Sciences)

I'd appreciate any suggestions for more titles of this type concerning any
part of the world; in particular, I'd like one or two very current titles
regarding EMU (a fast-moving target, I know).

Thanks!

Mark Green
