I’ve been watching and reading a lot more business news lately. It’s always fascinated me to some extent. Learning about companies, products, etc.
One thing I’ve deducted over the last year is that American companies that are successful worldwide do everything the same.
McDonald’s is the same tasting food across the nation and if you go to China, it’s the same tasting food across that country. Granted it’s Chinese skewed but the same tasting.
Caterpillar sells the same heavy machinery around the world. A bulldozer sold in Nashville is just as good as one rented in Abu Dhabi.
So what is America successful at? Innovation? to an extent. Mass production of the familiar? Yeah I would say that that is closer to the truth.
