WW: Are you hoping to accomplish this by telling your story?
WW: You bring up the idea of Imperialistic Capitalism vs. Democratic Capitalism in your book. Can you explain this?
WW: To that end, the economist Jeffrey Sachs believes that global capitalism simply needs a band-aid to heal itself but you believe that it is need of a complete overhaul. Can you explain that difference?
WW: In your latest book you mention Nike, which is based locally. Are you aware of them conducting business abroad with the help of EHM's?
WW: So, if a company such as Wal-Mart does so well by providing things cheaper for people here by using cheap labor abroad, how do you convince the broader public of that premise?
