    And perhaps our non-US colleagues can comment on whether this seems to
    be a
    US phenomenon only?<

    I highly doubt that this is a phenomenon limited to the US.

    So, we'll see what those across the globe say. Then again, they're used
    to just finding fault on this side, and not on theirs. It's part of the
    human condition. The grass may be greener, therefore, sour.

    Firstly, yes we do have the same problem over here, and given the
    universality of tha MBA programmes which are the product of the West, and in
    particular the USA and UK, i suspect that if it is not already world wide it
    won’t be long.

    I tend to disagree with americans when they come out with BS statements like
    “you are eihter with us or against us” - an *argument* that would not stand
    up in a kindergarten row. I am all for constructive dialogue as we have
    useful points to contribute from around the world. I am not anti America. I
    don’t agree with many things that go on in the UK. If i feel there is
    something wrong in either country i will say so.

    Is Bush’s persecution complex spreading?
