Summary[ edit ] In his book The World Is Flat, Friedman recounts a journey to Bangalore, Indiawhen he realized globalization has changed core economic concepts.
Friedman termed the period Globalization 3. Friedman recounts many examples of companies based in India and China that, by providing labor ranging from that of typists and call center operators to accountants and computer programmers, have become integral parts of complex global supply chains ; such companies are DellAOLand Microsoft.
Friedman's capitalist peace theory called Dell Theory of Conflict Prevention is discussed in the book's penultimate chapter. Friedman repeatedly uses lists as organizational devices to communicate key concepts, usually numbered and often with provocative labels.
Two example lists are the ten forces that flattened the world, and three points of convergence. Ten flatteners[ edit ] Friedman defines ten "flatteners" that he sees as leveling the global playing field: Friedman called the flattener "When the walls came down, and the windows came up.
At that point, the basic platform for the revolution to follow was created: Netscape and the Web broadened the audience for the Internet from its roots as a communications medium used primarily by "early adopters and geeks" to something that made the Internet accessible to everyone from five-year-olds to ninety-five-year-olds.
The digitization that took place meant that everyday occurrences such as words, files, films, music, and pictures could be accessed and manipulated on a computer screen by all people across the world. This is Friedman's catch-all for the standards and technologies that allowed work to flow.
It is the ability of machines to talk to other machines with no humans involved, as stated by Friedman. Friedman believes those first three forces have become a "crude foundation of a whole new global platform for collaboration".
There was an emergence of software protocols SMTP — simple mail transfer protocol; HTML — the language that enabled anyone to design and publish documents that could be transmitted to and read on any computer anywhere Standards on Standards. This is what Friedman called the "Genesis moment of the flat world".
The net result "is that people can work with other people on more stuff than ever before". This created a global platform for multiple forms of collaboration.
The next six flatteners sprang from that platform. Uploading involves communities that upload and collaborate on online projects.
Examples are open source software, blogs, and Wikipedia. Friedman considers the phenomenon "the most disruptive force of all".- Thomas Friedman quotes from plombier-nemours.com - Thomas Friedman The Dell Theory of Conflict Prevention argues that no two countries that are both part of the same global supply chain will ever fight a war as long as they are each part of that supply chain.
