Globsyn Business School has its dedicated EBSCO enlisted journal – The Globsyn Management Journal (GMJ) – an attempt to contribute to a better understanding of organisations and their functioning by presenting conceptually sound and methodologically rigorous articles which provide insights and advance knowledge on managerial, business and organisation issues.

Economic Development and Sustainability in Dynamic Global Market
The concept of sustainable development has received growing recognition, but it is a new idea for many business executives. For most, the concept remains abstract and theoretical. Protecting an organization’s capital base is a well-accepted business principle. Sustainable development is the core objective of the process of economic growth and development. But it is also a powerful instrument for promoting economic growth, especially when investments in developmental segment of global economy are made in the context of a liberal and open economic environment. There is interrelationship between three complementary issues: amalgamation into the global economy and the globalization of markets; the promotion of fast economic growth; and sustainable human development. The impact of each of these interlocking issues on supporting development is considered. The negative consequences of globalization and liberalization are also distinguished, and strategies to mitigate those impacts are located in social and economic policy. If sustainable development is to achieve its potential, it must be integrated into the planning and measurement systems of business enterprises. And for that to happen, the concept must be articulated in terms that are familiar to business leaders. The complexity of the overall issues is also considered, and several weaknesses of so-called ‘holistic’ or ‘comprehensive’ development approaches are identified and need to be furthered.
Taking these factors into account we have decided to bring out an Issue on ‘Economic Development and Sustainability in Dynamic Global Market’.
