This examination of cultural and economic globalization follows Mardi Gras beads made in China by teenage girls and young women -- who work in a factory 12 to 14 hours a day, six days a week for around 10 cents an hour -- to the adults who exchange them in the 24-hour New Orleans Mardi Gras celebration.
