The Dangers of Doing Business with Dictators

Beware of who you entwine yourself with.

Just yesterday I had the opportunity to interview Keith Krach, the author of this Fortune agmazine op-ed: "Present your China contingency plan at the next board meeting."

My Disaster Zone interview/podcast with Krach will go live on May 10. You can get a bit of a preview for what he is thinking and saying by reading his article, which highlights the many dangers of doing business with disreputable nations.

Besides highlighting the dangers of working with China and other countries, in my podcast interview we discuss a number of prominent technologies that will influence how we operate into the future.
