Businesses that can react quickly to an economic downturn have the best chance to survive hard times, but perhaps none are as nimble as a "virtual" company that has no central office, minimal overhead and can even go into hibernation if circumstances demand it. Agility is just one reason the virtual company has established a foothold in the workplace that isn't likely to be lost even during an economic slowdown. For certain small companies, such as Portland, Ore.

Nobody just hangs around the water cooler in the corporate office at Tom Reynolds' bustling computer services company. In fact, even though the 5-year-old business has more than 50 employees and annual sales approaching $6 million, there is no corporate office--at least, not in the usual sense of the term. For Reynolds, the president of ILAN Systems Inc., headquarters is a couple of cramped rooms in his 1,500-square-foot house in South Pasadena.

When it comes to California's future, small business may be the key. Corporate downsizing and advances in information technology are not merely features of the new economic landscape, but the means by which small business will eventually dominate that landscape, many economists and analysts believe.

It used to be easy to identify Canadians. They were quiet, law-abiding folks, partial to Wayne Gretzky's hockey, Margaret Atwood's novels and Leonard Cohen's music. They shopped at Hudson's Bay Co. stores and knew who the Canadian prime minister was. They had Canadian passports. To keep Canadian culture as Canadian as possible, the government erected a multitude of barriers. One was that a non-Canadian couldn't own a book publisher or distributor.
