11Our focus thus far has been on analyzing significant differences in
various cultural, family, and workplace values according to the country
of the respondents. Two broad sets of values were developed, one
reflecting a tendency toward individualism and the other toward
collectivism. Moreover, our research analyzed perceptions of various
socioeconomic and political issues at the organizational, national, and
international levels according to the country of the respondents. The
results of this research discussed in previous chapters indicate that there
are some significant differences in people's values and their perceptions
of issues according to the country of the respondents.The discussion in this chapter searches for significant relationships
between people's values and their perception of political economy issues
that may exist according to the country of the respondents. Our analysis
uses the values presented in Chapters 3 through 5, grouped into two
broad sets. The first set, individualism, consists of the following five
values, plus one individualism rank, that are directly related to the
overall tendency toward individualism.
Values and Perceptions of
|Family Economic Orientation|
|Individualism Value Rank|
Those three values discussed in Chapter 3 that are inversely related to
overall individualism are analyzed separately: leisure ethic, uncertainty
avoidance, and power distance.
