About The World Is Flat 3.0 by Thomas L. Friedman:
Pulitzer Prize–winning author Thomas L. Friedman imagines himself a modern-day Columbus, exploring a new world created by a global economy. He travels from Bangalore to Bentonville, interviewing key figures in the rise of globalization, outsourcing, offshoring, and supply chain management.
Like great explorers before him, Friedman spins tales of vast wealth and freedoms made possible by advances in technology. But here, too, there be dragons: foreign competition, educational failures, governmental incompetence, and the specter of 9/11 and terrorism are the ugly flip side of crowd-sourced technological wonders.
The World Is Flat is an essential work for anyone interested in the impact of globalization.
