The world is flat
When Mr. Friedman states that the world is flat, he is not literally saying so but in the business point of view, it’s flat; globalization. The “levelling” starting long time ago and continues to date. It has gone into several stages; ancient, 2.0, 3.0, and current globalization. This is as a result of several “flatteners”; Out-sourcing, Open-sourcing, In-sourcing e.g. UPS Informing –Yahoo and Microsoft; people source for information. This has created the convergence phenomenal where the world has become so small due to the internet and communication.
The convergence started around 2000; ten of the flatteners started to converge and work together to create a new, flatter, global playing field. In addition, the values started moving horizontally (reaching more people) instead of vertically. Finally, billions new people came out on the field to create a bigger market.
