If the world is now flat, we’re going to need some new maps.

What does a globalized world look like? Despite the extensive discussion on globalization and international interdependence, we still have a relatively limited idea of what this new world looks like. We understand that there are more international connections taking place, that a wider variety of goods and services are being exchanged across boundaries, that more and more people live their professional, family, and intellectual lives in more than one country, and that cultural autarky is no longer possible. Yet, we know little more than that. How fast have we integrated? What does the global web look like? Who is in the center and who is on the margins? Have these positions shifted over the past two decades?
