2. Based on the trends mentioned in the video, respond to the following questions:
A. How have you seen globalization and “the flat, fast and deep world” provide you or your employer with opportunities they wouldn’t have had previously? Give examples of what you mean.
B. How have you seen globalization and “the flat, fast and deep world” impact you or your employer in a negative way? (If you are not currently employed, think about a company of interest to you.)
C. Friedman suggests some upcoming trends. Discuss whether you agree with how they may impact people. Use examples to illustrate your opinion.
