Capitalism for whom?

The economic system known as capitalism has generated more wealth than any other system in history. In many ways it has defined modernity itself. Hundreds of millions have been lifted out of poverty.

But a lingering question remains - is the average American and western European interested in a war over the sovereignty of Estonia or Montenegro?

CrossTalking with Luc Rivet, Emmanuelle Gave, and Mark Almond.
