Welcome page

Welcome to my blog. To see my posts, choose a category from the menu above. I regularly add material, including pieces from two decades ago to more recent pieces . These include newspaper articles,one on HR problems for multi-nationals operating in China; on  the Euro crisis and German primacy; on world political and business trends in the fourth decade of the modern globalization era; or a think piece on the intellectual development of business schools. I have posted a case study for use in business schools on Turkey–a fascinating country which deserves attention. Recently, I have posted on Brexit, the US, China, Europe, and recently on the culture wars and the covid crisis. I am also a bass singer, so please visit the “music” category.

    Dear Jonathan Story, Amazing, knowledgeable and coherent analysis. Suddenly it all falls into place and the world situation makes sense. On top of it highly readable. It makes you pessimistic, though, but that is the price of lucidity. / Anders F. MBA INSEAD 1976 (but studied for Guy de Carmoy).

    I didn’t know the facts about Tommy Robinson until I read your post and was unlikely to get them from the mainstream media in Britain. Suppressing dissemination of information deemed inconvenient by UK elites is a national characteristic of Britain and a deeply sinister one IMHO.
