The Definition of Globalization

I’ve said it before, the world is economically flat, which puts us all squarely in the same boat when it comes to other peoples’ economies.

Here is a copy of an amusing but insightful email sent in by a reader.
It is a great tongue in cheek illustration of how close we all really are.

By anonymous:

Finally, here is a definition of globalization I can understand and to which I can relate.

Question : What is the truest definition of Globalization?

Answer : Princess Diana's death.

Question : How come?

Answer : 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 whisky,
(check the bottle before you change the spelling), followed closely by
Italian Paparazzi, on Japanese motorcycles; treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines.

This is sent to you by a Canadian, using Bill Gates's technology, and you're 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 Mexican illegals.....

That, my friends, is Globalization!
