U.S. Leadership Is Essential

This is a preview of my new book, Global Business: Positioning Ventures Ahead to appear with Taylor and Francis in early 2011. I will be posting little snippets from the book every once in a while. I encourage you to read, comment, share, and your thoughts to the comment section. And look for the book in June.

As we write this, governments worldwide are working to counteract the 2009 economic crisis by developing stimulus plans. The efforts of any one nation will have an impact globally because national economies are intertwined, but economic activity is highly concentrated among a few players – the U.S., European Union, Japan, China and Canada – who account for more than 75 percent of the world’s economy. That clout makes it critical for U.S. companies to become more involved in international marketing, whether it is export-import trade, licensing, joint ventures, wholly-owned subsidiaries, turnkey operations, or management contracts.

Please Comment:  Do you think the protectionist measures that are being enacted as a part of the stimulus plans will help or hurt domestic economic recovery?  What is the best way for governments to react to the recession?  Do you think that a global outlook is key to recovery?

  1. Together with every little thing that seems to be developing within this area, your viewpoints tend to be somewhat stimulating. Nevertheless, I appologize, because I do not subscribe to your entire strategy, all be it refreshing none the less. It would seem to us that your remarks are generally not entirely rationalized and in actuality you are generally yourself not totally certain of your assertion. In any event I did take pleasure in examining it.

    When trying to be a good leader, it is important to listen to what other people have to say. Your opinions or ideas aren’t guaranteed to be great just because you’re a leader. If you listen to other ideas or opinions, you may find that the people around also may have great ideas that could work well with yours. A good leader, or manager, will go out of his or her way to get to know employees better. About their outside activities, interests and family, though not just about work-related topics. Employees appreciate it when their leaders acknowledge them in ways that don’t pertain to work. This makes the relationship a little more personal.

  6. Yes, Prof. Czinkota , national economies are intertwined but as we know from the most intertwined system – the internet – is wise practice to build up firewalls. So call the ‘protectionist measures’ firewalls and this will change the point of view completely. Yes it makes sense – how could we ever believe that we could work without those. Firewalls are necessary to protect our economy and not only help, they are the most wise approach to lift up the economy again.
