That lightbulb moment when a boss gets it, and displays how little he does really get it

Posted on

The CEOs of the world's largest companies would like to think they are the masters of the universe: the seers of the modern world. Then you get a headline like this from The Guardian:

The rise of nationalism and governments that interfere in markets pose a threat to the global economic system, the boss of BHP, the world’s biggest mining company, has warned.

He really did reach that stunning conclusion.

That nationalism challenges globalism is something he has just appreciated.

Maybe, just maybe, he needs to notice the world outside Davos and his corporate HQ just a little more often?

Perhaps a little light reading on political economy might help him?

Or just a gram of common sense might be useful?

When this was his lightbulb moment you have to worry.
