The article focuses on the trends of globalization in the U.S. Accordingly, the paper compares the trends of globalization with American corporate structures and how the practices of corporate chief executive officer may be shaping the process of globalization in the developing world. It also argues that the trends tend to emulate U.S. corporate governance practices which has led to flawed practices that have stymied development and discouraged government intervention to sustain economies.
