The Rise of Popularism: Thomas L. Friedman

Barack Obama uses his cellphone

For those of you who don’t know, Thomas L. Friedman is one of the most influential and respected journalists and commentators in the world. I always find his articles to be highly thought-provoking and perspicacious. Sometimes reading one article by a world-class commentator can give you more insight than reading 20 by ordinary writers. For GP, such pieces are priceless. Having a deeper insight on world affairs than others gives you the edge in this subject.

This article explores the fascinating connections between technology and politics, psychology and society.
