Week 2 - The CAGE Distance Framework

Week 1 focused on explaining that globalization isn’t complete and why that matters. Week 2 focuses on what globalization is rather than what it isn’t: it looks at the structure of the international interactions that do take place. It turns out that the lion’s share of them are concentrated between countries that are broadly similar to each other. This session also presents a research-based framework for diagnosing cross-country differences versus similarities: the CAGE distance framework, where “CAGE” is an acronym for Cultural, Administrative (institutional and political), Geographic and Economic distances between countries...

Week 4 - Administrative Distance

This session will focus on the second dimension of the CAGE Distance Framework, namely Administrative Distance. Administrative attributes specific to a particular country, such as autocratic policies or weak institutions and high levels of corruption, profoundly affect that country’s international connections—but so do bilateral/multilateral factors, such as whether two countries are part of the same regional trading agreement, or had a colony-colonizer relationship in the past. This session will provide you with greater insight into how differences in such respects matter, with a particular emphasis on variations in how business enterprises are structured and governed around the world....
