斯坦福大学全球项目研究合作组织的网站上一段描述全球化的话。

Finally, a definition of globalization that we can all understand…
我们终于有了一个大家都能理解的关于全球化的定义…

Question: What is the truest definition of Globalization?
问:什么是全球化的最真实的定义?

Answer : Princess Diana’s death.
答:戴安娜王妃之死。

Question: How come?
问:怎么会呢?

Answer : An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, driving a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whisky, (check the bottle before you change the spelling), followed closely by Italian Paparazzi,on Japanese motorcycles; treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines.

答:一个英国王妃与一个埃及男朋友在法国的隧道里发生车祸。他们的车是德国造,装着荷兰造的引擎,司机是个比利时人,此公喝醉了苏格兰的威士忌(注:威士忌的苏格兰拼法与英语略有不同),后面紧跟着意大利狗仔,骑着日本摩托车。给戴安娜王妃急诊的是美国医生,用地是巴西产的药。

This is sent to you by a Canadian, using Bill Gates’s “world flattening” technology, and you’re probably reading this from a computer with a Taiwanese chip, and a Korean monitor, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapori plant, transported by Indian lorry-drivers,hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen, and trucked to you by Mexican illegal’s…..

这封邮件是一个加拿大人发的(原文是电子邮件),用地是比尔.盖茨“世界扁平化”技术,你读这邮件的计算机八成装地是台湾的芯片,韩国的显示屏,由孟买的工人在新加坡的工厂里组装,印度司机开车投送,结果给印度尼西亚人劫持,由西西里的搬运工卸下船,最后由墨西哥的非法组织贩运到你手里…

That, my friends, is Globalization!
兄弟,这就是全球化。
