John Perkins The Secret History
of the American Empire
Who rules the world? Politicians or capitalists?

John Perkins author of the best-selling Confessions of an Economic Hitman and the recently published The Secret History of the American Empire uncovers tales of 'greed run wild' and exposes the roots of corporate corruption brought on by what he sees as ever-increasing globalisation.

But is globalisation really that bad? Economist and author Jagdish Bhagwati does not think so and puts forth a persuasive argument for globalisation. 

On Tuesday's Riz Khan guest host Anand Naidoo looks at globalisation from all angles and asks whether or not the system can be changed.
