Irresistible piece on globalization and global leaders

An irresistible piece about globalization, global leaders by Schumpeter in The Economist that I just need to reproduce:
"People whose jobs require constant whizzing through airports often overestimate the extent of globalisation. Most other folk live in the same country all their lives. Most trade occurs within national borders. Nearly all politics is local. Company bosses who fail to notice this may underestimate political risks or ignore cultural differences, and such errors may prove disastrous. The best global leaders need to immerse themselves in local cultures."
 Time to re-think on globalization, localization and the way forward?...
