ABSTRACT
This paper will focus on how people react to the different types of innovations used in developing countries as they attempt to develop in ways that allow them to compete on a global basis. Many had the perception that the international community should be doing more to close the gap between developed and developing companies since the aid per captia to developing countries was reduced by one third in the 1990s. One could argue that developing countries are at a disadvantage and that the scales are tipped against them. In order to address the different types of inequities that may arise, those in the international business arena must develop policies and procedures that address these issues and create a sense of fairness for everyone involved. Issues such as business ethics, world viewpoint, corporate social responsibility and trade liberalization will be discussed in order to develop a framework for how developing countries can be positioned to compete with established countries.
