Summary
Global institutions - also known as intergovernmental organizations - helped promote political, economic, and legal stability in the midst of the Cold War. This episode examines the United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and NATO, and their roles in a post-Cold War world. The roles of the World Bank and the IMF have been particularly controversial for the impact their actions have on the live of ordinary citizens such as in Mexico, and that situation is examined. Also featured is an interview with UN Assistant Secretary General Alvaro De Soto
