Globalization, boundaries, lawyers

BoundariesShould they have left? Should they have stayed? Should we build a wall around ours?

Technology, communications, transportation, the ability to operate at scale, the force of populations — irresistible forces. Globalization is upon us.

There will always be boundaries. Boundaries will always be crossed.

Commerce is inevitable. Ain’t no wall high enough, ain’t no valley low enough, ain’t no river wide enough.

Boundaries are terrains of uncertainty; they are where complexity grows.  That makes them hunting grounds for lawyers. Someone must make things predictable.

Mid-size firms have new tools for the harvest.
