Ye,in the midst of these divisions, there is one encouraging development. This is the remark- able success of U, S. business firms as a worldwide unifying force. "Big internationM companies," proclaims U. S. News & World Report, "are pushing far ahead of politicians in re- shaping relations between countries around the globe." American finns abroad are now producing some $100 billion of goods for foreign consumption--three times as much as all goods exported from the S. With this investmerrt have come rapid advances in technology, millions of jobs, efficient management and dramatic expansion of productivity in the recipient nations. Tile result of this international economic activity is in- creased communications and the establishment of countless thousands of business and personal ties between the respect- ive peoples of the world. The horizons of individuals are being raised from the national to international interests. Thus, by its success, U. S. business has probably done more than centuries of politics to giv substance to the hope for a united world.
