In China, where a vaccine victory could turn a country that started the virus’ spread into the savior of the world, the virologist and major general leading the country’s vaccine project has been hailed as a “goddess” on social media. “If China is the first to develop this weapon with its own intellectual property rights, it will demonstrate not only the progress of Chinese science and technology, but also our image as a major power,” she said on state TV in March.
In June, following fears that the U.S. could get first access to a vaccine produced by French pharma giant Sanofi, President Emmanuel Macron announced that Sanofi would be dramatically ramping up operations in France to put “Sanofi and France at the heart of excellence in the fight … to find a vaccine.” Invoking the “genius of Louis Pasteur,” Marcon hailed France as “a great vaccine country.”
Meanwhile, across the English Channel, Britain is celebrating the news that its own Oxford scientists are “sprinting fastest” to develop a vaccine, in the words of an April 27 New York Times article—though the news site Irish Central took pains to point out that the lead scientist is Irish, not English.
When the federal government shuttered in October, Starbucks (SBUX, Fortune 500)CEO Howard Schultz refused to sit on the sidelines while businesses everywhere suffered. Instead, Schultz wrote a petition calling on his peers to rally together and put pressure on Congress to come to an agreement.

Some think the contest recalls the antagonistic days of the Cold War—“a sputnik moment,” says biotech investor Brad Loncar. Others see parallels to the dash to invent a marketable light bulb—an American discovery that stunned Europe and put the United States on the map as a center of innovation. As coronavirus cases mount around the world and economies continue to limp through lockdowns, nations are not just competing for first access to the vaccine, they’re also hoping to claim victory in a race that would affirm their national identities, resourcefulness and power—proving that their character, systems and intellect are superior.
The attitude of the founder will set the tone for the business. Negativity, laziness and entitlement waste time and money while they tarnish your reputation.

China's tourism officials are looking to reverse the trend of declining inbound visitors in 2014--possible, experts say, if it revamps its outdated tour packages and lowers ticket prices.
But there's little doubt this was also an 'acqui-hire,' in which the person being bought is just as important as the product.

Today, eyes are on the not-quite-cold-war rivalry between China and the United States, who have been trading blame for the current pandemic. Beijing is gunning to eclipse the U.S. as the world leader in biotech and has put the full weight of the state behind the country’s vaccine candidates. Of the 10 vaccines currently in clinical trials globally, five are from China, according to the World Health Organization. “For China, it would be awesome to be first,” says Carafano, even if the benefits are ephemeral—so much so that Chinese hackers have, according to the FBI, been attempting to steal U.S. vaccine research to get there.

Scientific accomplishment has long been a country’s ticket to prominence.
When Thomas Edison announced he had cracked safe, functional, indoor light—a discovery that inventors had been chasing for a century—Europeans refused to believe that an American with next to no formal education who had spent his teenage years selling candy on trains (and conducting chemistry experiments in the baggage car) could have beaten them to the finish line. “America in the late 19th century was absolutely seen as a technological backwater compared to Europe,” says Graham Moore, author of The Last Days of Night, which chronicles the rivalry between Edison and George Westinghouse. Only after Edison displayed his luminous creation in Paris did the French daily Le Figaro admit “Edison is not a myth.”

In the same era, the intense rivalry between German biologist Robert Koch and French biologist Louis Pasteur had dueling effects on science. The enmity meant that both Germany and France were slow to accept each other’s techniques, but it also helped push the two researchers to the heights of scientific achievement. Soon the U.S. was trying to copy them.

With the release of his book Conscious Capitalism, Whole Foods (WFM, Fortune 500) CEO John Mackey got business leaders thinking about a compelling idea: Companies work best when they create value for all their stakeholders -- not just investors. According to Mackey, key stakeholders include customers, employees, suppliers, society, and the environment. Highlighting companies like Costco, Southwest Airlines (LUV,Fortune 500), and Google (GOOG, Fortune 500), Mackey demonstrates that thinking about more than just the bottom line builds stronger and more efficient businesses.
But the Great War also turned quaint patriot rivalries into contests of life or death. The French had been apoplectic after they heard rumors of Wilbur and Orville Wright’s first flight at Kitty Hawk in 1903, says Jim Tobin, author of To Conquer the Air: The Wright Brothers and the Great Race for Flight, but at the time believed only their pride to be at stake, considerable as it may have been. “Must we one day read in history that aviation, born in France, only became successful thanks to the Americans; and that the French only obtained results by slavishly copying them?” one member of the Aéro-Club in Paris sputtered to his fellow members after hearing reports of the Wright’s accomplishment.
What’s more, a Fiat engine not only places among Wards’ top 10 for the first time, it’s for an electric motor, the 83-kW unit found under the hood of the diminutive 500e. Unfortunately the car is only sold in California, though market forces might convince the automaker to send it into wider distribution should gas prices gain spike up to the $4.00/gallon mark or above.
Men and women rated the strengths of their programme equally.
The Wright brothers thought their invention would make war between great powers obsolete, according to Tobin. Edison, who advised the U.S. Navy during World War I, made the same prediction, declaring the possibility of aerial bombing would cow countries looking to go to war. “Invention has got beyond the thirst for blood,” he said after the war. “The power of science that has been let loose must overwhelm aggressive diplomacy.” Edison didn’t live to see World War II, when leaders co-opted science—from chemical weapons to atomic bombs—to wreak unspeakable damage.
During the Cold War, rivals saw scientific breakthroughs as potent displays of power and pushed a generation of young citizens into engineering careers. But the rush sometimes backfired. The USSR became so obsessed with bridging a small gap between Soviet and Western computing technology that it became dependent on Western computer science, which it had to copy and steal, writes Chi Ling Chan in The Stanford Journal of Science, Technology, and Society. When the U.S. found out the Soviets were cribbing their software, they sabotaged it; one bug caused a Siberian pipeline to explode.

China and the United States aren’t the only countries protecting their own resources and reputation. The European Union, along with member states France, Germany, Italy and Spain, have all tightened restrictions on foreign investment since the start of the pandemic, along with Australia and Canada. Many countries are already inking deals to get their hands on whatever precious vaccine vials might emerge first, and dozens have restricted or cut off exports of protective equipment, medical devices or medicines.
In April, the British CEO of Sanofi, a crown jewel of French industry, said the United States could claim first access to the company’s vaccine thanks to heavy U.S. investment. French heads exploded; it was “unacceptable”—“unthinkable” that a French-based firm “benefiting from research tax credits would deliver a vaccine to the United States before [France],” French lawmakers and officials told POLITICO Europe. Sanofi walked back the statement; Macron summoned the Sanofi CEO to the Élysée Palace, and by mid-June, both men were announcing the company’s new expansion in France, with the CEO declaring “Sanofi’s heart beats in France.”

All that risk for victory that could be quite fleeting. While the first vaccine across the finish line will certainly be an immediate source of pride for the researchers, the manufacturers and the countries behind them—not to mention a profit opportunity for the producers—“frankly the real achievement, the one the record books will recount, will be the vaccine that really does provide … long-lasting, strong, robust, safe protection,” Schwartz says.
