PBS Wide Angle’s film “The Market Maker” features the story of one woman’s efforts to combat a seemingly never-ending cycle of famine in Ethiopia by creating that country’s very first commodities exchange.
It’s a task complicated by both a worldwide financial crisis and a steep learning curve about economics.
