The World Is Flat. Thomas I. Freidman

The World Is Flat. A brief history of the 21st century Thomas l.
Friedman. 2005. ISBN 037429. I like books written by good journalist.
This book is required reading if you have a business, children,
investments, or a desire for personal growth. This is an insightful perspective changing book. Easily the most relevant book I read this year. Why have China, India and other countries been able to so rapidly create an explosion of middle class wealth, using the recent convergence of technologies and events on the world global supply chain scene? Why has not Mexico done the same? Why should we worry about Pakistan, Sudan, Iraq and Saudi Arabia? Why is having oil a curse? What are the implications for Canada , Why is our productivity such an important issue? We are in a marathon and it seems Canada is resting and looking backward (and Roger Banister is passing us in the other side). This book is full of hope, insight and challenge to our generation. Plus it is very easy read, but it is a good size. Every Politician should read this one.
