Abstract

Conventional wisdom has it that the world is undergoing rapid globalization. Although academic and popular writers have described this process in a myriad ways, there seems to be wide agreement among those who claim globalization is in fact happening that it compels countries, industries and firms to converge towards a single, most efficient or adaptive, pattern. I argue against this modernist, flat-earth view of globalization. Countries and organizations do not gravitate towards a supposedly universal model of economic success in order to cope with globalization, as a few dissenting voices have pointed out. Rather, they strive to be different, namely, to leverage their unique economic, political and social advantages in the global marketplace. (The rest omitted)
