***eBay International Trade & Tax Initiatives
While many companies no doubt have lobbyists to petition their interests in Washington, there is no company that comes to mind engaging such an executive hands on approach to making their political efforts in DC as transparent and as accessible as eBay. Differentiaion between eBay and its competitors pivots on the definition of a community that is comprised of a convergence of buyers and sellers. That very intersection speaks to the essence of what a healthy socio-economic marketplace should look like. eBay dedicates an entire department that positions itself in clear view of observers and participants who wish to get directly involved in the process of pressing for economic and other interests.
An example of such an event took place last month when the incoming eBay CEO, Devin Wenig, led a team of eBay cross border specialist executives such as Wendy Jones, and Government Relations specialist Tod Cohen to Washington along with a diverse representation of small businesses. You know the type, the ones that form the financial backbone of this nation. Doubtless many companies have the same goals in mind. However, it is unlikely that any understand the nature of the challenge as well as eBay does due to the vast scope of merchandise that encompasses the marketplace. With 800 million listings, the message is the planet under one roof.
When 70% of the inhabitants of this planet do not speak English, common language dialogue and frictionless borders are certainly worthy objectives to strive for.
