The Future of Corporate Globalization: From the Extended Order to the Global Village

Voorkant
Greenwood Publishing Group, 2002 - 259 pagina's


Paradigms are shifting. The capitalist market model, or extended order, whose globalization forces support the business methods of multinational corporations, is giving way to the Global Village model--one of justice, virtue, stability, and national sovereignty. Sullivan contends that by creating conditions for opposition, globalization may be dooming itself. Here he explains the shifting paradigm and considers its likely impact on corporate conduct.

Companies ignoring the growing chorus of discontent with globalization do so at their peril. But those who adapt to new realities will not merely survive--they will prosper. This book details the adaptations that corporations need to implement to safeguard their roles in the future:

- Corporate governance bodies will increasingly include NGO representatives and employees.

- Justice, stability, virtue, and national cultural identity will become corporate goals, alongside the profit motive.

- Customer relationships will become enriched by mutual obligations and trust.

- Risky global corporate strategies will have less appeal than more stable avenues of action.

- Employee relations will increasingly take into account workers' growing desire for meaningful labor whose rewards entail more than financial remuneration.

- Managers will become more like public servants and less like independent agents.

The persistence of these trends--accelerated by the growing power of the Internet to bring far-flung activists together in pursuit of common goals--threatens the existing order as never before.

Pagina 238 - Where wealth accumulates, and men decay: Princes and lords may flourish, or may fade; A breath can make them, as a breath has made; But a bold peasantry, their country's pride, When once destroyed, can never be supplied.

Pagina 162 - When the accumulation of wealth is no longer of high social importance, there will be great changes in the code of morals. We shall be able to rid ourselves of many of the pseudo-moral principles which have hag-ridden us for two hundred years, by which we have exalted some of the most distasteful of human qualities into the position of the highest virtues.
Pagina 81 - The moral rules which forbid mankind to hurt one another (in which we must never forget to include wrongful interference with each other's freedom) are more vital to human well-being than any maxims, however important, which only point out the best mode of managing some department of human affairs.

Pagina 58 - That it reached conclusions quite different from what the ordinary uninstructed person would expect, added, I suppose, to its intellectual prestige. That its teaching, translated into practice, was austere and often unpalatable, lent it virtue. That it was adapted to carry a vast logical superstructure, gave it beauty.
