On BBC News 24’s HARDtalk tonight (Friday 13 December), Allan Little interviews Philippe Legrain, economist.

Globalisation is, to many, the issue of our age. More trade means more wealth creation and greater prosperity for rich and poor alike, its supporters say.

Why then after a decade of radical liberalisation is so much of the world sinking into deeper poverty while the rich nations get steadily richer?

And why does the anti-globalisation movement seem to have ignited the passion of so many, especially the young?

Philippe Legrain is an evangelist for globalisation. He is an economist and a former special advisor to the World Trade Organisation. He talks to Allan Little.
