Hey There.

Starting this blog for my FSEM Globalization class. We’ll see where it goes from here. So far I don’t know too much about the topic of globalization, but I’m starting Thomas Friedman’s book The Lexus and the Olive Tree. I’m on the first few pages and so far he just seems sort of arrogant (he tells the story of how he asked room service in a foreign hotel for oranges and had to send them back because they were sliced with this really pompous attitude) but I hope that subsides as he gets a little deeper into the topic. I’m excited to see where this class goes, I hope that we’ll focus slightly more on culture and people.
