NOTES

PREFACE

1. Theodore Levitt (1925–2006), a Harvard business professor, is credited with having coined the term globalization. Giddens (2000), Reich (2007), Cohen (2006) and Cowen (2002) are among the most insightful authors who have examined the enormous economic and cultural changes accompanying globalization.
