With a background of technological and communication innovations, socialization research, particularly as it refers to cultural and academic learning, has become increasingly connected with the business and economic aspects of global societies.

Nationalism, Cultural Indoctrination, and Economic Prosperity in the Digital Age examines the doctrines that society is expected not to question, particularly the influence these beliefs have on business and the prosperity of the world as a whole. This book is an essential resource for business executives, scholar-practitioners, and students who need a multidisciplinary approach to the effects of culture on cognitive strategies and professional methodologies.

Reviews and Testimonials

Noting the rise of nationalism in the second decade of the twenty-first century, and using examples of Ukraine, Russia, Sudan, islands in the South China Sea, and the Arab Spring, the book raises two critical questions: can these conflicts and resulting situations provide sustainable new states over the long term, given the effects of contemporary globalism on national economies and prosperity everywhere? What have been the real root causes of these nationalistic fervors? Citing cultural indoctrination (CI) as the real foundation of nationalism, fourteen chapters treat, inter alia, the culture of development and the developmental capacity of states; how social controls can create political stability and social cohesion which allows for rapid economic development; the impact of cultural intelligence (the capability to relate and work across cultures) on global business; the pitfalls and potential of ethnic marketing in the financial services industry.
