Usually big corporations depend on the government to take care of that stuff. Even a trillion dollar company like Apple doesn't command enough respect to make the Chinese government do what they want. Not in their own right.
I would say that the opportunities to make wealth in the global economy are one slip away from the Wild West, unless someone is acting to prevent that from happening.
What I can say for sure: my wealth is at least partly localized. Apple is affected a lot worse than me if something bad happens in the global market.
