  1. I found yesterday’s installment, “Globalization 3.0” to be a little underwhelming. It featured case study bits joined together by the two hosts bantering at a “Car Talk” level of gravity. The conversation was, loosely, “You know, globalization has both winners and losers. The question is – are the winners winning enough to justify what the losers are losing? That’s a good question. I guess we’ll see in 30 years.”
