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.
