Commanding Heights: The Battle for the World Economy - Disc 1: The Battle of Ideas (2002)
In the wake of World War I, economic turmoil in the United States and Europe led to new perspectives on the global economy in both the private and public sectors, and since that time, theorists on both sides of the fence have constantly debated the virtues of an international free market as opposed to economies overseen by governmental controls. Commanding Heights: The Battle for the World Economy is a three-part documentary which examines the history of the global economy debate, as well as the new battle over globalization that erupted at the dawn of the 21st century. Among those lending their perspectives on camera are former president Bill Clinton, vice president Dick Chaney, former president of the U.S.S.R. Mikhail Gorbachev, president of Mexico Vincente Fox, and senior minister of Singapore Lee Kuan Yew. Commanding Heights was based on the best-selling book of the same name by Daniel Yergin and Joseph Stanislaw. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Disc 1: The Battle of Ideas
The Battle of Ideas identifies how the world, for much of the twentieth century, first moved toward more government control and then began to move away. The program focuses on the struggle between two economic thinkers, John Maynard Keynes, whose ideas on government intervention dominated much of the twentieth century, and Freidrich Von Hayek, whose free-market ideas were largely ignored until the economic crises of the 1970s forced political leaders to rediscover them. In the 1980s, the simultaneous emergence of the governments of Margaret Thatcher and Ronal Reagan set the stage for a worldwide capitalist revolution-- one that will be tested by economic turmoil in the future.
