Thomas Friedman wonders why America is hated by the rest of the world. He also calls on people to email him and help him find a stable way to manage the United States’ relationship with the world.
“Where we are now,” says Nayan Chanda, publications director at the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization (whose Web site yaleglobal.yale.edu is full of valuable nuggets), “is that you have this sullen anger out in the world at America. Because people realize they are not going to get a vote over American power, they cannot do anything about it, but they will be affected by it.”
Finding a stable way to manage this situation will be critical to managing America’s relations with the rest of the globe. Any ideas?
