1. In Friedman’s attempt to draw a parallel between himself and Christopher Columbus, he misrepresents Columbus as someone who had to prove to his contemporaries that the world was round. Does this misinformation hurt Friedman’s argument by making him less credible?
2. How many of the ten flatteners have affected your life? Do you think
Friedman left any flatteners out? Is the importance of any of the flatteners
he lists overstated?..........
Chapters 1-4 What are the benefits/ detriments of the “world is flat”
metaphor? What is Friedman trying to convey with this image? Is the world
he describes really flat? Think of another metaphor that would better
explain (or explain just as well, if you buy the idea that the world is
flat) what Friedman details in these chapters...........
