How will the McDonald’s Corporation adapt to the new challenges of globalization ?

Someone defined McDonald’s “a popular American fast food restaurant with a worldwide appeal and presence.” And therefore, as what he said, McDonald’s is hated by college Marxists because it’s simply a symbol of the triumph of capitalism. Well now we might think that McDonald’s has its policital influence. Hours after the United States started its bombing raids in Afghanistan,angry crowds vandalized McDonald’s outlets in Islamabad and Karachi. Demonstrators burned an American flag outside a McDonald’s restaurant in the resort town of Makassar and then stormed it.  No company faces the issue of globalization more acutely than McDonald’s. Often the symbol of American entrepreneurship and capitalism in the world, McDonald’s has enjoyed successes with its association to the United States.   However, that same association in recent years has become a vice to this fast-food chain as U.S. foreign policy around the globe is being met with resistance from enemies and allies alike.
