Definition of Globalization

"I referred to a general fear that globalization will essentially mean Americanization.  In The Lexus and the Olive Tree, Friedman writes of the tension between the market that is rapidly becoming the universal fixture that affects all, and the desperate need many of us feel to protect the local history, culture, spirit that has enriched our difference.  Some critics have scolded that Friedman is far too optimistic about globalization.  But certainly the tension will continue to grow between the universal controlling forces of market and resource distribution and availability and the need to realize our creativity and learning potential within spheres of real difference.  The skills of public discourse suggest that we will need ever more not to define and exclude but to wonder and include.  I think our draft of learning outcomes should reflect that, for all of us." jeanne
