Crazy Like Us: The Globalization of the American Psyche

An interview with Ethan Watters, author of "Crazy Like Us: The Globalization of the American Psyche."    Not only is America exporting Mc Donald's, strip malls and the latest movie blockbuster,  according to Watters we are also exporting Western ideas about mental illness.  Learn why Watters says: "We should worry about the loss of diversity in the world's differing conceptions for mental illness in the same way we worry about the loss of biodiversity in nature."
