PBS--Stealing Africa

Watch Stealing Africa on PBS. See more from Why Poverty?.

I have been writing a series about economics in Africa when I found this. I have not watched the whole show since it takes an hour, but the first ten minutes looks excellent. This is from PBS about the film.
In an age of global trade, multinational corporations motivated by maximizing profit often end up working against the interests of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. Stealing Africa investigates reports of widespread criminality by well-known multinational companies operating in Africa. Featuring interviews with heads of state, corporate insiders, and officials from the major global financial institutions, the nature and extent of the problem begins to emerge.
