International Business: "Chapter 3.1: What Is Culture, Anyhow? Values, Customs, and Language"

Read section 3.1 in chapter 3: “What is Culture, Anyhow? Values, Customs, and Language,” if you have not already. Note in the subsection, “Nationalities,” that “today the physical territories that constitute the countries of India and Indonesia are far different than they were a hundred years ago.” Also, the previous British rulers in India” tended to hire locals for administrative positions, thereby establishing a strong and well-educated Indian bureaucracy.” Although many business people complain about India’s slow bureaucracy focused on rules and regulations, the government infrastructure and English-language education system helped position India as a strong high-tech economy.
