North and South America

Tyler Cowen aims to explain his viewpoints of how and why globalization is either a good or bad thing and uses numerous examples to magnify his stance.  One quote that struck me as a strong comment was “ If each society were exactly alike, we might all end up with less to choose from.” The common idea of globalization is that the world is becoming more western; adopting influence from North America.


The Classics

The Big Mac is comprised of two hamburger patties, top and bottom bun and a "club layer" bun. On the burger is one slice of cheese, shredded lettuce, pickles, minced onions, and the famous "Big Mac" sauce(similar to thousand island dressing).

McDonald's french fries are only made from high quality potatoes that are sliced and cooked in Canola oil.  The french fries now contain zero trans fat.

McDonald's Chicken McNuggets are made only from white meat and have a tempura breading. Introduced in the 1970's Chicken Nuggets have been a favorite by many for over 30 years.

"Hamburger University"

In Elk Grove Village, Illinois McDonald's developed a training and research center to better their products. There scientists use the scientific method and run experiments on how to best process and serve their food. This research and development is paramount to the success of McDonald's. While there they think of new ways to cook, freeze, store and serve all of their food which not only boosts their bottom line but benefits the customers. More than 80,000 employees graduate from Hamburger University.
