Chart Focus: Mapping globalization - McKinsey Dec 2011
"No more than 25 percent of economic activity is truly global, yet visions of a borderless planet entrance many senior executives. To grasp the realities of a world where distance and differences still matter, they should develop “rooted” maps, which correct the misimpression that a viewer’s vantage point doesn’t influence the way things look.

The starting point for rooted maps is to create a reference map depicting your industry environment, but not your own company’s or country’s place in it. An executive at a film studio, for example, might develop a map in which the size of countries reflects their total box office revenues and the color depicts the market share of domestic movies."

Innovation in America | A gathering storm? | The Economist
based on Amar Bhidé of Columbia Business School's new book “The Venturesome Economy”, which argues that gloom about America's decline as a tech powerhouse is misplaced 1. Obsession with number of degrees awarded is misplaced because innovations easily cross borders 2. commercialization of ideas is more valuable to companies than the initial bright spark "For America to retain this sort of edge, then, what the country needs is better MBAs, not more PhDs."
