    Some believe that the distinctions firms face regarding the economic and social outcomes of their operations are all-encompassing. Others believe that the expectations are unclear, and the world is not as open as we imagined. Some may see the firm as a boundary-less organization that operates in boundary-less markets. Others are less keen on an increasingly globalized and open world. This debate is about how all these contradictions will impact the organizational forms.
