Basically, Friedman ignores the main facts
1. Workers have no voice in the process of Globalization.
2. Free Trade is not trade as historically defined or practiced.
3. Current statistics do not match up with those in the past but Friedman uses the statistics as if they did.

I agree that Friedman is overly optimistic - and yet his book is/was groundbreaking in that it got many Americans to think about globlization.

Your blog is great reading and I am going to recommend it when I give the closing keynote at the Canadian Library Asn's annual convention.
