This is an idea for creating an alliance of global companies that are outside the English language sphere, to push for the use of a global pidgin in place of English. What companies would profit from such a system:

 

  • Companies that sell overseas
  • Companies that purchase overseas
  • Companies that have production or construction sites overseas
  • Companies that invest overseas

 

Given, of course, that these companies are from non English speaking countries.

 

Here are some ideas for companies who might be able to profit.
