Thomas L. Friedman, the World is Flat

Internet video on demand is one of the wonders of our time.  The Charlie Rose program you can get for free by clicking the link above will give you a chance to hear one of the great thinkers and writers of our day. 

Friedman cuts to the chase.  He shows some of the thought processes used in his book, The World is Flat and explains why energy is the primary problem the United States should have as a national priority.  He outlines many  the good things an energy program could do for education, world leadership and the world economy. 

Friedman is a wonderful speaker.  You don't get that from his book but it comes out in this video.  He loves metaphors.  When he uses one, you get it. 

Google video has wonderful programs like the Charlie Rose show that can't be matched anywhere else.  I recommend you try it.
