Small Business Can Be Borderless

Remember when E.F. Schumacher wrote the classic Small is Beautiful? I think about that all the time now with small businesses going global. One of Schumacher's philosophies was: "Why use the computer if you can make the calculation on the back of an envelope."

If he were to revise his book today, he might offer this: "Why remain local with a business if you can easily go global?"

Apparently Dan Brutto thinks along the same line with his commentary over at Forbes entitled, Small Business, Big World. which is about how international clients can keep a company buoyant in tough times.

Here's one of his comments:
Clearly, entrepreneurs are recognizing the benefits of trade, and we should do what we can to help them harness the power of trade to grow their businesses.
