Flat World

It is no surprise, therefore, that those societies with the most innovative scientists, universities, engineers and technology companies able to solve complex problems … have enjoyed rising standards of living over those societies without them. What I call the “flattening” of the world – the fact that more people from more places have more tools to compete, connect and collaborate than ever before – is only accelerating this, for several reasons.

The first has to do with the fall of the wall and the rise of Windows.
