Why Does The World Speak English? What’s Your Theory?

Why does the world speak English? 🤔

I have always found this question interesting… and the impact on IT Leadership profound.

Back in the 1500s, India & China had a higher literacy, stronger Navy & higher percentage of the world GDP. So, how did English become the global language it is today?

I think the paradigm shifted when India & China started focusing internally, ignoring what other parts of the world were doing and stopped collaborating as much across borders.

As IT Leaders, instead of only focusing internally, to continue growing, leaders need to pay attention to new opportunities on the outside as well.

What is your theory about English is spoken around the globe?
