The lyrics of this song are astonishing. They hit the nail right on the head. I can't image a better and shorter explanation of the problems surrounding and created by globalization. Unfortunately the song and its lyrics are in German. The musicians are Christoph and Lollo, a Viennese singer-songerwriter duet. If you understand some German listen to this: Globalisierungslied.

The song starts with these lines:
In our complicated world there are jobs,
which nearly nobody can understand.
For example, there are men whose main purpose
is to invest the billions of their clients
for five minutes, then take the money back
to turn one percent of profit.
This make millions of people jobless,
and poor and sick and dead,
has no purpose for mankind,
and rots the world's economy.
Only a few rich can profit
in a tax exempted way,
They turn richer ....
