WinWin with America
Still the fountainhead of innovation
Photo - New York: There is no doubt that America faces significant headwinds, yet it remains a critical element in any multinational's global strategy.
Even though America has very open markets and is relatively receptive to foreign investment, investments with security implications must pass the screen of CIFIUS - Committee for Foreign Investment in the United States. Those seeking to access U.S. public capital markets must meet rigorous disclosure requirements. America’s federal form of government reserves significant powers to states and localities requiring engagement at each level. Labor unions and activist groups are influential, particularly in the areas of worker rights and the environment. Those who develop a sophisticated approach to addressing non-market forces can find investing in America to be highly rewarding.
There is no doubt that America faces many challenges. The World Economic Forum cites its greatest as "a lack of macroeconomic stability”, including significant trade deficits, federal budget deficits, mushrooming government debt and a weakening currency. Yet the United States remains a highly competitive economy with flexible labor markets and transparent regulations. America is the most innovative country in the world and the only industrialized country with a growing population. It is hard to call your company global without a presence in America.
