Whether we like it or not, the world is globalizing. There has been much ado in government and the media about jobs being lost overseas and yet the US still has one of the world’s strongest economies and lowest unemployment rates. This is in spite of the fact that we have been slow to embrace the global economy and adapt to it.
My company and I are on the front lines of the globalization trend. We go where “angels fear to tread” so that others can come behind us in a secure environment and invest in emerging economies and bring best practices in business and administration to the world. This helps to win the hearts and minds of the people and governments in our host countries by demonstrating the value of democratic institutions and capitalism on the quality of their lives.
