As part of KBOO's special programming for this day, the Old Mole looks at the WTO and corporate globalization, with pieces on how the WTO protects business from the full costs of doing business, the socialist alternative to the capitalist crisis, issues of race and poverty, and the music of resistance. Today's host is Clayton Morgareidge.
