Anglo Saxon is not European – Shock!
European or Anglo Saxon? Mutually exclusive groups?
A European Union funded research project called investigating Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) describes the companies that participated in their research as being either:
- North European
- South European
- Anglo Saxon
(e.g. table 18 page 49 in Final Report)
Do you think they included some USA registered US English speaking companies and labeled them Anglo Saxon?
How would they classify a company with its Headquarters in the Netherlands that uses Anglo Saxon English as its main business language, North, South or Anglo Saxon?
How did they label any companies registered in Northern Germany – pure Saxon? or did they exclude them?
Does ‘Eastness’ and ‘Westness’ not make a difference? Given the radical differences of the social philosophy influenceing Western and Eastern European countries I would have suspected differences in their attitudes, behaviours and sesitivity to ladybird stings.
Time for another cup of tea.
This is an example of the type of thing that keeps me entertained and (un)productive during a normal working day. What works for you?
