World Peace Unlimited filed for bankruptcy last Tuesday, citing an inability to continue holding out hope for success in the face of one crisis after another.
The company, once a visionary enterprise with a global outlook, has recently been battling multiple internal conflicts. Sadly, unlike other businesses with financial difficulties in the past few years, World Peace was unable to secure government assistance in the struggle to remain viable. Officials say the bailout for World Peace was nixed because there’s no money in the company’s product.
“The return on investment is nonexistent,” says a government insider. “The market for World Peace isn’t getting any better.”
Analysts agree, pointing out that decision makers have always been more interested in Control Incorporated, a rival firm and a fierce competitor in the global market. They say the utopian ideal promulgated by the marketing department of World Peace was never reality, and that the future looks bleak.
Some investors insist World Peace still has an opportunity to emerge from bankruptcy and enjoy a fresh start.
“This is the not the first setback the company has suffered,” says Pass Afist, a specialist in dispute management and a major shareholder. “Is no one prepared to fight for World Peace?”
