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.
