The paper discusses Thomas Friedman's "The World Is Flat" where he talks about the rise of globalization and how it is 'flattening' the world. The paper relates how critics charge that Friedman's arguments demonstrate an attitude that economic success is more important than the spread of democratic ideals. The paper considers two points that negate this criticism but then criticizes Friedman for failing to back his claims up with much more than anecdotal evidence.
