I’ve got a metaphor and dammit I’m gonna use it
no matter how much you guys giggle
Tom Friedman meets Product Placement:
Yet, with a few admirable exceptions, American business has not gotten out front on these issues. In part, this is because boardrooms tend to be culturally Republican – both uncomfortable and a little afraid to challenge this administration. In part, this is because of the post-Enron keep-your-head-down effect. And in part, this is because in today’s flatter world, many key U.S. companies now make most of their profits abroad and can increasingly recruit the best talent in the world today without ever hiring another American. (my emphasis)
“flatter world”? of what does this man speak? Ah I see. I must purchase his book to understand and appreciate his insights and clever wordplay.
