Alternate title:Global cities (Princeton, N.J.)
Immigration and the world economy
Summary:The globalization of the world's economy has brought about massive shifts in population--some welcomed, some meeting fear and resistance. This high-energy series tours five cities where such changes are evident, gathering perspectives from New York, Tokyo, London, Frankfurt, and Mexico City. It also studies America's increasingly divisive national debate over immigration.
Title for disc 6 (America's immigration debate) from container. No opening or closing credits for disc 6.
