Where do you come from?

James Surowiecki, author of The Wisdom of Crowds (one of my favourite books of recent years) has an interesting piece in the Guardian about ownership of companies. Following the hoo-ha about foreign ownership of US ports and successive attempts by foreign investors to buy the London Stock Exchange, it’s very topical. I have to admit, I’m with James on this one. I’ve never really seen why it matters what country a company comes from. Surely it’s much more important to look at their values and track-record instead.
