Tom Friedman Lecture at Yale Law School

Wednesday, March 1st, 2006

In case you have an extra couple of hours or so to spare I highly recommend watching this video of Thomas L. Friedman’s recent lecture at Yale Law School (February 22, 2006). His main topic is globalization — the “flat world” — and its many implications on economics, culture, education, law, politics, terrorism etc. and how it will affect the way we’ll live in the future.

If you listen carefully, you can take away quite a few subtle clues as to what it is we should be focusing on in Germany in order to get a headstart in these times of change (and trust me when I say it’s not some garbage union going on strike for some phony reason).
