Summary: Part 7 of a series on how the globalized world economy affects ordinary people. Many people in the Third World feel they are being penalized when they face drastic import controls for turning their raw materials into manufactured goods. Now they're also running up against the Seattle Syndrome -- an alliance of liberals and protectionists who want more restrictions on trade to fight poor wages and exploitative working conditions. But is this a justifiable way of fighting globalization -- or a kind of colonialism in disguise? The film also examines the garment industry of the Philippines as an example
