Takeaway Points

  1. Two countries with McDonald’s almost never go to war with one another.
  2. The South Ossetia War between Russia and Georgia in 2008 was the first violation of the theory.
  3. While clearly silly, perhaps the McDonald’s peace theory is indicative of how trade could cause peace.
