StumbleUpon’d this earlier today, and I thought I’d share it with you here.
Q: What is the truest definition of globalization?
A: Princess Diana’s death.
A: An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, driving a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whiskey, followed closely by Italian paparazzi on Japanese motorcycles, treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines. This is sent to you by an American, using Bill Gates’ technology and you are probably reading this on your computer that uses Taiwanese chips and a Korean monitor, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant; transported by Indian lorry-drivers, hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen and trucked to you by illegal Mexican workers…
And that is what Globalization is.
