This Is Globalization

Long-time colleague, Dr. William Polley at Western Illinois University offers this post. Although the link seems to require payment to access the story, Dr. Polley sums up the relevant point - an excellent example of globalization.

To make the point clearer, take a map of the world. Start at Duluth, MN, and draw lines to all the other parts of the world that are affected or will be affected (according to the story) by the transaction of the ship taking on grain.
