“flow of technology, economy, knowledge, people, values, ideas” across borders (quoted in Kreber, 2009)

Perspective should be worldwide, like the economy

Not everyone comes from U.S. or Western culture/bias

in new contexts:

One must widen his/her

knowledge base + openness;

increase his adaptability,

and ability to learn
