Tracing the Roots of Globalization and Business Principles 2nd Edition
History is an evolving inspection with new revelations continuing to be uncovered. The globalization phenomenon has roots throughout the world. It is important for all nations and people as they join the interconnected world economy to understand and appreciate the similarities shared by all in the past, continue to exist and impact the future. We are experiencing, in the words of Michael Rostovtzeff, the realization that ..”.the difference between the ancient economy and modern are differences of scale, not of kind.” Such common heritage is the fulcrum upon which the modern commercial dealings are based. Business principles are more universal than perhaps any other set of human standards. The exchange imperative was practiced by every society on earth and it is a shared process that continues to unite the world.
