What is Globalization Doing to Family Firms?

In most countries, family-owned and managed companies are still the most frequent form of business organization, but today they are facing unprecedented challenges. What are the new cultural, business, technological and political forces that are making the traditional family-business arrangements unsustainable? How are successful business families responding to the new challenges?

At the Forefront of Globalization: Lessons from Global Smugglers

Criminals have proven to be faster than any other profit-oriented enterprise at detecting business opportunities in other countries and continents, exploiting such opportunities ruthlessly and effectively adopting the technologies and organizational practices that keep them profitable and ahead of both their criminal competitors and the governments that combat them. How do they do it.
