Today’s mess of the world is detrimental to Internationalization.

It took years and hard work for countries to cooperate and build an international global market.

Now in a matter of months or days anti-globalization forces threaten the very nature of business internationalization:

  • Ebola presents a great impediment for international businesses in the African continent
  • The crisis of Ukraine, the soured relations of Russia with the West and the economic sanctions have dealt a great blow to internationalization
  • Isis forces and the instability of the countries of the Arab Spring make business people very reluctant to do business in those regions.
  • What is left of the globe suffers from weak economies that make countries look more inward than outwards.

Internationalization needs a stable and prosperous globe which unfortunately we appear to be lacking.
