People in North America can eat tropical fruit in winter and buy clothing made in Asia. Around the world, people exchange goods, information and technology at a faster rate than ever before. But not everyone benefits from having the world within reach. This video raises some questions about economic globalization through the stories of two communities in Mexico. In Tilapia, families who depend on income from coffee now face a devastating drop in world coffee prices. In Zacongo, changes to age-old corn farming practices and less expensive imported corn have cut deeply into peoples ability to support themselves. Explore how we as Christians have a responsibility to our global neighbors whose lives have been profoundly affected by this race to accumulate wealth.
