This is one of the most interesting maps I have seen for a while! This map tells a wonderful story of how globalized our economy and our population have become. As you view this map, consider the following questions:
Notice how many countries are strictly consumers of Starbucks and McDonald's products and not producers of some component of their product. Is this coincidental or is there a cultural and economic divide?
As McDonald's continues to expand its markets, what challenges do they face as a corporation? Does McDonald's have the potential, due to its economic prowess, to influcence policy in some of these emerging markets?
