I find it amazing that he has won 3 Pulitzers.I also agree about his and others' theories on climate change. Hurricanes and other storms are getting worse as the years go by. I do not agree with outsourcing,it takes to many jobs from Americans. As for his world is flat,global communication is great,but has disadvantages in my opinion. Alot of life experiences are lost when people rely to much on computers to communicate.

I liked it whenever Thomas talked about insight into his book "The World is Flat." I liked it whenever he mentioned the The Playing Field is being leveled portraying the human growing diversity and from which he retrieved the title of his book. I agree with the statment that Americans are lazy. In my opinion that is very true because Americans could be doing so much more than what they are yet we go into debt and give up.

When Thomas Friedman spoke about his book "The World is Flat". I enjoyed the part about when he said that other cultures and differnet races make fun of Americans. Because its a true statement. that, and the other famous saying that "Amercians are lazy". Alot of people do not bring those kind of issues up but Thomas did. I like the speech. Well said.

 Our countries International Debt has grown but our economy is suffering we import more and more because we want, but look at where we are now. We are in recession and out Gross Domestic Product keeps falling. The outsourcing again playing a role in this.

He talks about the workforce of the United States needing to keep up to date in work skills. I wonder if he ever thought about what the unemployment in the future would be compared to what it was when he wrote this book. At this point in our country it would not be any different if the skills would be updater or better it's just very hard to find work and more companies are shutting down and laying off.
 
I feel that when he is talking about outsourcing as a good thing but it also has its drawl back as even though it saves them money it takes employment from our people. Which in turns makes it hard for our economy to grow. This scenerio seems more and more popular.
