Thomas Friedman On America’s ‘Hidden Fist’

 

Thomas Friedman, New York Times Magazine, March 1999 (quoted in Rushing to Armageddon, by Mel Hurtig; Toronto:

McClelland & Stewart Ltd.; 2004; p. 136).

 

‘For globalization to work, America cannot be afraid to act like the almighty superpower it is . . . The hidden hand of the market will never work without the hidden fist . . . And the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley’s technologies is called the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine corps.’
