What do you call a person with a provincial worldview; who is likely stuck in 1978, when command-and-control reigned supreme; who believes the world still revolves around America; and who will not change their position on anything regardless of the facts?

Here’s how OWM view the world differently, and why this leads to disaster in business

Another business site The Phoenix Principle expands on MidasNation using the disaster that is GM as an example of how their OWM management was are clueless, stuck in the past, and drove the company into the ground.
Telling the story about how GM management drove the profits out of suppliers while bankrupting the company, he contrasted GM’s behavior with the Japanese run firms in America who partnered with suppliers to make a better product customers more highly valued. We know who ended up with the profitable approach.
Remember, these criticisms of corporate America are coming from mainstream business websites, not the leftie fringe.
