We look at Libya's role in the global economy as oil prices continue to rise and visit the London School of Economics where Muammar Gaddafi's son once studied and submitted a 400-page report on civil society and human rights.

And, as the unrest spreads and governments stuggle to get their people out, we look at Turkey's relationship with Libya.

This episode of Counting the Cost aired from Friday, February 25, 2011.
