Globalization of Politics

All’s fair in love and war.

And business.
And politics.

Today’s mantra:  If you can’t get the job done using domestic resources, go global.

 

Look at Apple, a trillion dollar company with the richest corporate portfolio in the world.

It currently assembles the majority of its iPhones in China with additional factories in Thailand, Malaysia, the Czech Republic, South Korea, Singapore, and the Philippines.

When US manufacturing companies compare unfavorably to the scale, skills, infrastructure and cost available in foreign countries, Apple makes a business decision.  They follow the mantra; afterall, they’re in business to survive.  To grow.  To profit.  To win.

Apple isn’t alone.  Virtually all of Fortune’s top companies have assets in foreign countries.

The NBA is a multi-billion dollar business and pro basketball includes more than a 100 foreign athletes from fifty different countries and each

NBA team has one overriding goal: To win.

This is the rule that governs modern, strategic business warfare.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that it’s insinuated itself into modern, strategic political warfare.

Ethics be damned.  The constitution be damned.

Globalization is like gravity.  It’s a phenomenon.  A form of energy. A force of nature that is irrefutable.  Undeniable.
