This Independence Day edition of The World is Flat 3.0 includes an an exclusive preview of That Used to Be Us: How America Fell Behind in the World It Invented and How We Can Come Back, by Thomas L. Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum, on sale September 5th, 2011. A New Edition of the Phenomenal #1 Bestseller "One mark of a great book is that it makes you see things in a new way, and Mr. Friedman certainly succeeds in that goal," the Nobel laureate Joseph E. Stiglitz wrote in The New York Times reviewing The World Is Flat in 2005. In this new edition, Thomas L. Friedman includes fresh stories and insights to help us understand the flattening of the world. Weaving new information into his overall thesis, and answering the questions he has been most frequently asked by parents across the country, this third edition also includes two new chapters--on how to be a political activist and social entrepreneur in a flat world; and on the more troubling question of how to manage our reputations and privacy in a world where we are all becoming publishers and public figures. The World Is Flat 3.0 is an essential update on globalization, its opportunities for individual empowerment, its achievements at lifting millions out of poverty, and its drawbacks--environmental, social, and political, powerfully illuminated by the Pulitzer Prize--winning author of The Lexus and the Olive Tree.

A New York Times Bestseller, One of The Wall Street Journal’s “10 Books to Read Now,” and One of Kirkus Reviews’s Best Nonfiction Books of Year We all sense it—something big is going on. You feel it in your workplace. You feel it when you talk to your kids. You can’t miss it when you read the newspapers or watch the news. Our lives are being transformed in so many realms all at once—and it is dizzying. In Thank You for Being Late, version 2.0, with a new afterword, Thomas L. Friedman exposes the tectonic movements that are reshaping the world today and explains how to get the most out of them and cushion their worst impacts. His thesis: to understand the twenty-first century, you need to understand that the planet’s three largest forces—Moore’s law (technology), the Market (globalization), and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loss)—are accelerating all at once. These accelerations are transforming five key realms: the workplace, politics, geopolitics, ethics, and community. The year 2007 was the major inflection point: the release of the iPhone, together with advances in silicon chips, software, storage, sensors, and networking, created a new technology platform that is reshaping everything from how we hail a taxi to the fate of nations to our most intimate relationships. It is providing vast new opportunities for individuals and small groups to save the world—or to destroy it. With his trademark vitality, wit, and optimism, Friedman shows that we can overcome the multiple stresses of an age of accelerations—if we slow down, if we dare to be late and use the time to reimagine work, politics, and community. Thank You for Being Late is an essential guide to the present and the future.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Thema: Globalisierung, pol. Ökonomie, Note: 1,0, Universität Trier (Politikwissenschaften), Veranstaltung: Kapitalismustheorien und Kapitalismuskritik, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Thomas Lauren Friedman urteilt in seinem neusten populärwissenschaftlichem Werk "Die Welt ist flach - Eine kurze Geschichte des 21. Jahrhunderts" über die stetige Weiterentwicklung des PCs und der Zunahme globalisierter Wertschöpfungsketten, die zu einer neuen globalen Entwicklungsstufe der Globalisierung geführt habe. Diese Entwicklung habe es im 21. Jahrhundert ermöglicht, nicht nur Menschen und Kapital sondern auch Serviceleistungen und Waren weltweit immer schneller und ungehemmter zu bewegen und somit jedem Individuum der Welt zugänglich zumachen. Outsourcing oder Offshoring seien Resultate dieser fortschreitenden Liberalisierung der nationalen Märkte. Die zunehmende weltweite Kommunikation via PCs durch das Internet führe zu einem ungehemmten globalen Wissensaustausch, durch den jeder Bürger der Erde in die Lage versetzt werde, unbegrenzt und ungehemmt Informationen auszutauschen. Damit käme eine globale Chancengleichheit im Erwerb um Wissen zwischen allen Individuen der Erde zustande und der Wettbewerbsvorteil in punkto Bildung der westlichen Industriestaaten sei relativiert. Die Friedman’sche "flache Welt" bedeutet die völlige Aufhebung aller restlichen weltweit existieren individuellen Ungleichheiten. Es wird untersucht werden, ob die Welt wirklich so flach ist, wie Friedman es in seinem Werk behauptet. Sind die globale Verbreitung technologischer Entwicklungen und der chancengleiche Zugang zu universitärer Bildung in der Volksrepublik China wirklich so bedrohlich für den Industriestaat USA, wie von Friedman angenommen? Die primäre Untersuchungsfrage muss also heißen, inwiefern ist die Welt 'flach' bzw. inwiefern wird sie immer flacher? Um diese Fragen beantworten zu können, soll zuerst im 2. Abschnitt dieser Hausarbeit geklärt werden, wie Friedman seine Definition von einer flachen Welt versteht. Gleichzeitig soll analysiert werden, ob es mögliche generelle Fehlargumentationen in seiner verallgemeinernden Interpretation der heutigen, globalisierten Welt gibt. An ausgewählten gesellschaftlichen, politischen, technologischen und wirtschaftlichen Bereichen am Beispiel der Volksrepublik China untersucht werden, in welchem Ausmaß die allgemeine Entwicklung in diesem Land voranschreitet. Es gilt zu klären, ob die VR China wirklich ein so weit reichendes Entwicklungspotenzial besitzt, wie Friedman dies in seinem Buch skizziert, um hinterher beurteilen zu können, wie flach die Welt zwischen China und den USA ist.

This book makes recommendations for meeting four major challenges currently facing the United States, including globalization, the information technology revolution, chronic deficits, and unbalanced energy consumption. America has a huge problem. It faces four major challenges, on which its future depends, and it is failing to meet them. In this book the authors analyze those challenges, globalization, the revolution in information technology, the nation's chronic deficits, and its pattern of energy consumption, and spell out what needs to be done now to rediscover America's power and prowess. They explain how the end of the cold war blinded the nation to the need to address these issues seriously. They show how America's history, when properly understood, provides the key to coping successfully and explain how the paralysis of the U.S. political system and the erosion of key American values have made it impossible to carry out the policies the country needs. This work is both a searching exploration ofthe American condition today and a rousing manifesto for American renewal.
