Globalization and Fragmentation - The question has been asked whether Thomas Friedman or William Duiker was correct in their opinions about globalization and fragmentation. It appears that both authors are correct and their reasons are interconnected. If the world has become closer because of the economic markets and the internet, than it makes the debate that the world is flat relevant (William Duiker, 2010). Thomas Friedman says that technology is equalizing the playing fields between wealthy and impoverished countries. With other countries catching up and even mastering technology in some instances, it allows to them to play on the same fields as the United States and other super powers....   [tags: International Business]
