The Globalization System 2 The Globalization System: In his “Prologue: The Super-Story”, Friedman succeeded in conveying his conceptions underlying globalization through reviewing a series of facts and using abstract but apt language with a touch of humor which makes it interesting and comprehensible by a typical reader. The text is mainly revolving around ideas relating globalization with many economic, social, cultural and political movements around the world. Friedman defined globalization as an overwhelming power that manipulates incorporation of national with international economies, which he described in a single word “integration”. In addition, he described globalization as a “web”, that is, the global exchange of thoughts and ideas as a result of new technologies evolving which connects the whole world and facilitates economic integration. His article was a call for people to adjust to the changes emerging from globalization.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
