Friedman's latest book, “The World is Flat: A brief history of the 21st century,” deals with that top of the mind subject: Globalization. He talks of how globalization is flattening the world, and how quickly this globalization is spreading across the world. He identifies 10 flatteners or factors that led to the flattening of the world, and one of them is that much debated about term: outsourcing.
The book paints a nice, big picture on how the world is changing in fundamental ways, and how and why governments and people need to adapt to these dynamic changes.
