Some thoughts on world dynamics
Too many CEOs in 2010 still have the mindset of military leaders, in that they are preoccupied with beating the competition instead of focusing on client needs, wants and satisfaction. Too many analysts as well.
On the other hand, world dynamics in recent years have turned countries into players in a global economic game where the goals are scored via exports and trade surpluses!
Hence corporations are failing in satisfying clients, shareholders and ... analysts, countries are failing to satisfy their populations and have allowed populists to create scapegoats out of political and economic immigrants (see recent proposals re immigrants and "new" citizens in USA, France and Belgium).
In short, the world (Earth) is anything but uniting, in spite of the positive effect of the Internet and social media!
