The Future of Transnational Management
An Evolving Global Role
China, Japan and Korea comprise a relatively stable regional sector with a steady growth curve, and yet within the footprint of each country are large satellite markets that are almost completely isolated from adjacent ones. Any sharing of satellite assets and bandwidth across borders, such as the case with the recent MBSAT joint venture involving companies in Korea and Japan for example, represents an exception rather than the rule. India may soon fit this model as well.
PUNAKHA, Bhutan - High in the Himalayas, above this peaceful
valley where farmers till a patchwork of emerald-green fields, an icy
lake fed by melting glaciers waits to become a "tsunami from the sky."
The lake is swollen dangerously past normal levels, thanks to the global
warming that is causing the glaciers to retreat at record speed.
But no one knows when the tipping point will come and the lake
can take no more, bursting its banks and sending torrents of
water crashing into the valley below. Such floods from above have hit Punakha
before, most recently in 1994, a calamity that killed about two dozen people and
wiped out livelihoods and homes without warning. But scientists say a new flood
could unleash more than twice as much water and be far more catastrophisidents.
Punakha, a picturesque Buddhist kingdom, is not alone in having the threat of death and destruction hanging over their heads like an environmental sword of Damocles. Because of Earth's rising temperatures, at least 25 glacial lakes in Bhutan are at risk of overflowing and dumping their
contents into the narrow valleys where much of the country's population lives.
Like many poor countries, isolated Bhutan is paying for the environmental
damage wrought by the developed world and the expanding economies of
nations such as China and India, whose fossil-fuel consumption and
greenhouse-gas emissions are pushing global temperatures relentlessly upward.
