The author is a columnist for the New York Times magazine for the segment of foreign affairs. He is a three-time winner of Pulitzer Prize for his captivating commentaries. He has authored many books, and he is a holder of a master degree in modern Middle East studies from the Oxford University. The world is flat is one of his non-fiction contribution in books writings of which has won an award. In his May 2012 column, he argued that investing for the future through inventions and other technological advancements is vital. He argued that governments should continue to value the funding of research, higher education, and the effects of immigration that leads to the production of persons with high Intelligence quotient and hence their impacts on innovation and development as seen in Silicon Valley and Seattle. The columnist is successful in convincing for he provides real-life examples like Facebook and Twitter, companies that have grown out of innovation and Microsoft will many posts unfilled and requires turning to foreign countries to meet their manpower demand.
The one making the argument is the author of various books and a frequent columnist for the magazine of New York Times. He has a master in modern Middle East studies degree from a recognized university in the world. We trust him for the academic qualification and the distinguished performance as shown by the awards and prizes he has received globally. He gives the direct quotation from the founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos to give his information credibility. He claims that he has personally visited the Silicon Valley the innovation hub that makes his information credible.
The argument is concerned with strategies for future investments and the essential components required. He talks about the new error where being a politician, or a student leader is not the biggest achievement any longer, and that it doesn’t lead to wealth accumulation as before. The main ways of realizing success now and in future is through innovation and research. He talks about Microsoft having unfilled vacancies prompting them to launch their activities outside America to get required manpower. Immigration has been controlled and these blocks the creative minds required from coming to America. The government is not investing in research and, for this reason, there are no creative discoveries now that the investment in higher education is no longer enough. The author compares the situation into a cripple that hits our logos and pathos sense concurrently.
The author offers a solution where he encourages the government and private entities to support research activities and promote immigration and fund higher education. He congratulates Boeing and Microsoft for providing a $25 million kit to sponsor scholars with interests in studies of technology and healthcare. His audience is first for Americans and then the other parts of the world because he gives American examples and successes like Microsoft and Google. I would ask the government and private persons to support high education and help in talent incubation for a better future. In conclusion, the author is wondering about the future what it would be like without innovation or nothing to show for the past we have been living. He emphasizes that supporting research, not restricting immigration too much and supporting the higher education studies through funds could be a golden goose laying eggs that can promote developments.
