The paper summarizes the main ideas of chapters five, six and seven of "The World is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century" by Thomas Friedman. The paper refutes Friedman's three theories and maintains that they are one dimensional and nationalistic. The paper asserts that Friedman's arguments are illogical and his claims unwarranted.


From the Paper:

"In Chapter Five " America and Free Trade" the essential thesis of Friedman's argument reflects the notion of globalization and the way that America plays an exemplary role in this economic process. The author continually uses the free trade market to explain why outsourcing of jobs helps the overall global markets through a series of supply driven markets. Friedman is actively defining the way that the global market helps to invigorate competition within American markets, defining a large scale "community" of labor and trade that will mutually benefit both American and International economies (Friedman 225-228)."
