From the Paper:

"However, with the industrial age, technologies began to advance rapidly, with businesses experiencing a concomitant paradigm of growth. Large corporations began to engage in activities such as vertical integration, product diversification rather than differentiation, mergers and acquisitions, soon to be followed by globalization. The economic scale of these businesses rapidly expanded, and rules and regulations were created to regulate a company's entry into foreign countries. This further contributed to the complexity of the business and economic world and concomitantly necessitated further complex business strategies in order to remain competitive within this environment."
