Abstract:

In The World Is Flat, the highly-regarded New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman advances the work on globalization that made his The Lexus and the Olive Tree a bestseller. Claiming that the world is now at an important historical point--as important as the changes brought by the discoveries by Columbus or by the Industrial Revolution--Friedman analyzes the events, inventions, and business practices that have resulted in a changed world, one he calls Globalization 3.0.
