VG has touched a chord with this article in Harvard Business Review

HBR

How GE is Disrupting Itself describes the concept of reverse innovation - how products developed in and for low-cost countries (like India and China) by multinationals (like GE) lead to growth - not only in the low-cost market, but at home as well.

VG says the article has touched an "emotional" chord with readers who are saying that this approach is just what "western" multinationals should be doing - designing products for the local market at a price-point which is within reach.

Check out the advertisement for one such product:


To me, this is just the first step to being truly global (as they say at Thunderbird). With business commitments at a local level, social commitments will surely follow. 

Now let's see some "ecomagination" in action and build portable solar/wind electrical generators for off-grid villages at an affordable price-point. Right, Bob?
