Is The World Really Flat? - Harvard Business SchoolThat's the question posed by Amar Bhide in his new book, The Venturesome Economy. Disputing Thomas Friedman, author of The World is Flat, Bhide concludes that: (1) it isn't, and (2) arguments by Friedman and others - whom he labels as "techno-nationalists" - fail to recognize how innovation that matters really occurs and aren't always helpful to long-term global or even U.S. development.
(1) it doesn't matter where in the world high-level research takes place, because (2) its findings travel easily and at relatively low cost, but that (3) as one progresses from high-level to ground-level products and services and from high-level to ground-level know-how, ideas travel less easily.
