Thomas Friedman’s book “The World Is Flat” is great reading for anyone looking at issues of globalization. This article is nice summary of sorts, with reference to his “Dell Theory of Global Security” (or something like that) where he makes the argument that countries that are connected in supply chains have too much to lose by going to war (such as China and Taiwan).
