If you don't think the world is globalizing at a rapid rate, then check out the following statistics: In 1990 there were little more than 3,000 multinational companies. In 2012, that number had snowballed to 100,000.
If you want further proof, watch a World Cup match. The national origins of the companies being advertised around the soccer pitch and on the shirts of the players are sometimes difficult to determine. Those that are easy to determine - McDonald's, for example - are as comfortable in doing business in a bustling city in China, as they are doing business in a small, mid-western town in the United States.
