OOPS! Here's that elusive Blog Entry #3. Sorry about the confusion.
By this time, you were supposed to have read Chapter 3, "The Triple Convergence ." Answer one of the following two questions. I'll expect a comment of one good paragraph or more. (To me, that means 5-6 sentences at a minimum.) Remember that this is a public site, and you are responsible for the content of your postings. Assume that each comment is worth up to 5 points.
YOUR COMMENT SHOULD BE POSTED BEFORE CLASS TIME ON TUESDAY IN ORDER TO GET FULL CREDIT.
A. On pages 202 - 203, Friedman begins to get at the heart of what he means by "the triple convergence." My question is simple. Of the three, which convergence do you believe will have most profoundly influenced the world by the time you have graduated from college? Why?
B. On pages 228 - 229, Friedman begins discussing what he calls the "other" triple convergence, one that masked much of what is described earlier in the chapter. He is referring to the dot-com bust, 9/11, and the scandals in corporate governance. Do you believe these, or any other factors, can stop the continued impact of the ten flatteners and the triple convergence? Why or why not?
