Felix Salmon v. Tom Friedman

Felix Salmon has a great takedown of a typically misinformed Tom Friedman op-ed. I don’t have a whole lot to add; Felix is very thorough in his analysis. I do have to say, however, that I was unaware of Friedman’s wealth by marriage–I assumed that Friedman made a good living from his position at the Times and on the speaking circuit. However, I didn’t realize his wife was the heir to a fortune worth billions…of course, it looks as if it’s not worth quite that much anymore…according to the logic in Friedman’s op-ed, maybe if he and his wife got a little more motivated they could earn their billions back…
