Eric Schlosser’s Global Realization

Throughout the six sections of this chapter, what is Schlosser’s argument? Your account is a detailed explanation of this argument, which is conveyed throughout these different sections we have been reading.
What are the major themes of this chapter? Can you identify some consistent topics, unifying ideas, or motifs that enable Schlosser to create impressions upon the reader and clarify his argument? Clarify these themes and explain them using specific evidence from the text. Can I illustrate that this story of McDonald’s (and other American corporations’) ‘global realization’ is a disturbing mix of entertainment, cultural economics and/or politics?
