Friedman's theory

Reader comment on item: The Education of Thomas Friedman

The Golden Arches theory is awesome! but I have not decided if it's accurate. Widespread assumption that those countries tied into the world economy and have a Mcdonalds, more stable governments, and are less likely to go to war, What do you think, Is this true?

You could take one part of the world that has a recent history of conflict, such as Africa and apply this theory, statistic being % GNP from exports and compare. What would the outcome be? Is this theory false or not?
