    Default Thomas Friedman

    Op-Ed contributor to the N.Y. Times and author of several books, including "The World is Flat," "From Beirut to Jerusalem," and (very recently) "Hot, Flat and Crowded."
    Seems to focus on either Globalization, Israeli issues, or the war in Iraq.
    I've read one of his books and have seen a few lectures. From my POV, his ideas aren't particularly novel. He's more famous for the way in which he frames his concepts- with cute metaphors, i.e "flat world" for globalization, which was actually criticised by several reviewers as excessive in his writing (Ne HA?). He has a sort of powerful lecturing style in which he appears very emotionally invested in his viewpoints (Fe leading?).
    My best guess is ESE. I first thought he might be EIE, but he seems to be very presently focused even though he likes talking about things that will have a large effect on the future. He also seems to be more interested in defining and describing the current trends, rather than trying to shape the future into an envisioned ideal.



    Here's him speaking about his new book:

    he's boring as hell, but his writing style is very distinct.

    My ILE politics teacher was making fun of him a while back, how strange his writing is.

    This is me and my dual being scientific together
