    Abstract

    Purpose - The article aims to provoke debate about the organizational implications of international business. Design/methodology/approach - This is a conceptual argument relying on elements of social theory and contemporary politics. Findings - The paper finds that organizing is not a synonym for hierarchy, management or markets, though they are all examples of organization. Practical implications - The implication for research and practice is exploring alternatives to hierarchical market managerialism. Originality/value - Many arguments and comments are put forward, suggesting alternative ways of thinking about formal organizing and organizations and will be of interest to those in the field.
