Abstract:Our ancestors looked to the stars, soothsayers or signs from natural phenomena to determine their future plans of action, yet in modern times people throughout the world consult the FTSE100, the Dow Jones or other market share indices for wisdom. The forces of globalisation have been accused of producing a world without wonderment, dictated by numbers and, "projecting us into a shapeless planetary space that no expectation could dominate" (1998). The great challenge of globalisation is to understand its power in reanimating the corporation and the consequent ramifications for people and societies.
