    These videos do a great deal in explaining the idea of globalization. Before watching them the topic was a little blurry in my mind but now it is much more clear. They all also do a good job of explaining poverty and what is has done to our world in general. The lady in the last video did an exceptionally good job at explaining fair/unfair trade. She goes into great detail at how this is affected our world negatively. The biggest challenge I saw that was pointed out was the obvious points that I have already mentioned, but what stood out to me was the import/export rules that have been made that go along with trade. They want exports to be charged by certain people but a poor country could not charge any imports into their country. This idea is completely unfair.
