There are some powerful thoughts in this Global Intelligence Briefing for CEOs. I learned about it from our CEO (thanks Brent). The author is Herbert Meyer, a special assistant to the Director of the CIA in the Reagan administration. As Meyer states: “Currently, there are four major transformations that are shaping political, economic and world events. These transformations have profound implications for American business owners, our culture and our way of life.”
These four major transformations and their implications include:
1. The War in Iraq
2. The Emergence of China
3. Shifting Demographics of Western Civilization
4. Restructuring of American Business
To get a balanced perspective you might want to also read the subsequent post on the Evolving Excellence blog and note the comments.
