I was so happy to hear that Friedman's super-rich father-in-law had lost billions in the Global Economic Meltdown - - either he was a complete idiot or just not part of the In Crowd, huh?
Friedman, like Bill Kristol, et al., is so uniquely wrong about everything I hesitate to read any of the drivel he has written. Friedman urges the offshoring of America, while his many chins continue to wiggle. Of course he wins many prizes, as do the other evangelists of unemployment and economic warfare on the American worker. Bravo, another pile of wasted trees from Friedman.
The globalization of labor [lowered wages, loss of opportunity] and the globalization of housing prices [allowing anyone from any country to bid up housing and rental prices] is a double whammy for the masses, but still only a few understand this? [Perhaps they've been reading too much Friedman?]
