This article aims to establish the rationale for cooperation between companies, to investigate the motives for developing cooperative relationships, to identify the nature and functioning of strategic alliances, and to identify the nature and functioning of strategic networks. At this moment in history the companies of the East are showing themselves to be able to compete successfully against those of the West in an increasing number of industries. Despite the West's claims to be the birthplace of the industrial capitalist system, its economic dominance for the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth, and its emergence from World War II in a position of supreme power, and world leadership in automobiles, electronics, steel, textiles, shipbuilding, and pharmaceuticals either has passed or arguably is in the process of passing to the East.

Keywords: cooperative relationships; corporate strategy; strategic alliances; strategic networks; capitalist system; business leadership
