Global Business: Making The Matrix Work

In a world with perfectly integrated and interconnected markets across borders, there should be little room for differences in business strategy across countries and cultures. However, evidence tells us that the world economy is far from the perfect integration paradigm: We live in a semi-globalized world where distance matters.
