Political Structures in the Sui, Tang, and Song Dynasties

the world's oldest and greatest civilizations and has a rich, 5000-year-old history is china. The Chinese culture can be traced back to an assortment of small, early tribes that grew to become modern-day china (Chafilwa, 2012).

Walmarts International Business

company faces the risk of economic slumps and downturns in different nations such as china and Mexico. However, the continued growth of emergent and developing nations offers more economic prospects for Walmart (Rowland, 2015).

Analysis Of Various Currencies

value among the currencies, the Chinese Yuan seems to be the easiest currency to contend with whilst abroad. china appears to be the least expensive place for an American tourist because of the higher value of the U.S. Dollar and the lack of effort to match U.S. dollar prices. The most expensive would have to be countries that have the Euro. They implement higher prices and the Euro is worth more than the U.S. dollar. The most comparable would have to be the Japanese yen because they maintain roughly the same prices as U.S. dollar prices. For example, $1… Continue Reading...

Is Globalization a Good Thing

reasons for it. If globalization was taking root in Mexico like it already has and is in countries like china, India, Bangladesh and other countries that are a common target of outsourcing, Mexicans would be more apt to stay home because the jobs present in their country would be higher-paying and more numerous. In short, the opportunity to improve the lives of Mexicans across the board is entirely present and possible. However, the government, the educational frameworks and the social structures of Mexico will need to modernize and improve for real change to take hold (Kim, 2007). Conclusion To… Continue Reading...

The Effect Of Globalization on Business

whole is also tied into the effect of globalization. In today's world, what happens in china, Japan or Europe affects other economies. The recent bankruptcy of Hanjin shipping has already caused worry for the upcoming shopping season, as Hanjin was responsible for shipping 8% of the world's commerce. Because of globalization, what happens in Asia does not stay in Asia: it has ripple effects throughout the world. Thus, globalization has its positive benefits (a wider market) and its negative effects (a closer relationship means a greater possibility of being impacted by hiccups on one end of the relationship chain… Continue Reading...

Business Land Scarcity in Hong Kong

Scarce Land in Hong Kong Land, capital, labour and entrepreneurship constitute the four factors of production.

Strategic Policy and Planning at Dell Computers

prefer trying out a product prior to purchase. This disadvantage has particularly been true in emerging markets such as china, where the notion of online shopping is largely at its infancy. Overreliance on the U.S. market (which accounts for over 60% of its total revenues) and a relatively limited history of acquisitions also constitute significant weaknesses for the company. In addition to these weaknesses, Dell faces stiff competition from its rivals in the PC category, especially HP, IBM/Lenovo, Apple, Acer, Sony, and Gateway.

Relational Mental Model

of a certain group or society. In such a culture, interpersonal relationships are highly valued. china is an ideal example of a high-context culture. Here, the use of implicit communication is common. This is unlike in a low-context culture such as the U.S. In a low-context culture, assumptions are rarely made in communication. Since individuals do not identify with groups, it is generally not expected that there are cues known to everyone. As a result, communication tends to be explicit, straightforward, and to the point. Question 5 The continuum of high-context and low-context communication brings to the fore the… Continue Reading...

Why My Future in the Energy Industry Is Bright

to global population growth and industries in countries like china and India. However, demand for oil and gas will gradually diminish as renewable energy sources rise (Helman). In fact, a "growing world population from 7 billion people today to 9 billion by 2050 will need much more energy -- in particular as most of these people will aspire a life like we have here in North America," (Helman). Renewables will provide the solution for promoting growth and economic development while complying with emissions standards and the shifting demands of consumers. The growth in oil demand in developing countries has… Continue Reading...

Poems and Chinese Literature

a journey with a red backpack. Red, of course, symbolizes the communist faction of china that arose to power in the Chinese Cultural Revolution. However, the most stark imagery that confronts the reader is the belligerence which occurs when the speaker hitchhikes with a driver bearing a carload of apples. A series of travelers steal the apples, prompting the speaker to engage in fisticuffs with them. The result is a bevy of images explicitly denoting violence and pain: "A fist came crashing into my nose, and I landed several feet away. I staggered up, rubbed my nose. It felt… Continue Reading...

Buddhist Versus Hindu Architecture

of its founder, Siddhartha Gautama and gained greater traction elsewhere, including china and Japan. Buddhism also split into two distinct traditions, that of Theravada and Mahayana, the former of which emphasized the monastic tradition of strictly adhering to the teachings and life of the Buddha while the latter placed greater emphasis on the ability of laypersons as well as monks to obtain Enlightenment. In contrast, Hinduism is a distinctly Indian religion. Both religions embrace the concept of reincarnation, although it is Hinduism who uses this idea to justify a caste system, or the notion that the social class into… Continue Reading...

Role Of Confucianism in Art in China

is from the late 4th century CE. Scroll painting has remained one of the most prominent art forms in china, and in the late 12th century, Ma Yuan painted "Scholar Viewing a Waterfall." This painting not only shows how important scholarship and learning is to Confucian morality, but also how important learning is to maintaining the order and structure of the universe. A major feature of Confucian doctrine is social order and hierarchy, but that hierarchy is important insofar as it reflects the cosmic order of the universe. In "Luohan in a Garden Setting," from the Ming dynasty, the… Continue Reading...

Importing Textiles from China

Supply Chain There are potentially a few key players that are involved in sourcing textiles from china. It may be possible to source directly from the producer, but it might also be necessary to deal with a wholesaler. There is the opportunity perhaps to buy from a wholesaler that already has the textiles in Canada, but it will be assumed for the sake of this exercise that is not the case -- that the client needs to source custom from china. Depending on the client's internal resources, it may be necessary to have a translator, and some sort of… Continue Reading...

Discussion and Conclusion The outcome of the essay reveals that firms' decision to outsource part of their business process cannot be reversed because the financial benefits companies derive from outsourcing are more than its shortcoming. Many firms are outsourcing their manufacturing process to low-wage countries such as china and Mexico Apart from tapping cheap labor costs from china, firms are also able to have access to cheap materials. Let us be realistic, a complete manufacturing of the… Continue Reading...

The Grand Chessboard Book Analysis

Soviet Union has created relationships and new rivalries that map out a new geopolitical realism. For example, china has become a major important state in the international arena playing stick and carrot game with the United States.

Better Relationship with Russia a New U.s. Policy

of the multi-polar world -- namely the role of Russia and china in world trade. With Russia coming to play a dominant role in the Middle East by aiding Assad's Syrian forces against ISIS and rebels fighters, the U.S. has a choice to make about how to approach the foreign power. If the U.S. pursues a policy antagonistic to Russia, it could find itself on the losing end of a fight in the Middle East, as Russian missile technology is far advanced and capable of shielding a significant radius. Moreover, outside the Middle East Russia and china have formed… Continue Reading...

Diversity and Cultural Assessment

Therefore, in those cultures, an acceptable leadership style is autocratic with skepticism for participative approaches. India and china do not aim for individual gratification and are therefore, restrained cultures that do not feel motivated from personal rewards/extended time off. These are things to consider when applying leadership across the globe. Servant leadership is a leadership model that considers ethical standards and fits into a need for leadership across cultures and diverse peoples. The five aspects of servant leadership, "Egalitarianism, Moral Integrity, Empowering, Empathy and Humility" (Mittal & Dorfman, 2012, p. 555), provide a sound basis from which the global… Continue Reading...

Capital Investments in Emerging Markets

company endeavors to expand its operations in emerging markets, for instance India, china, Brazil and Russia. In these expanses, the firm can make the most of their incessantly fast rates of economic growth and development and therefore prospective greater returns.

Another modification to make in evaluating expansion projects in the global market encompasses the risks entailed. For instance, investing in nations such as Brazil and china, the company is… Continue Reading...

Victims Of the Holocaust

of Israel in 1948. People living in Poland, Slovenia, and china, did not receive anything other than further political and economic instability. There were not just differences when it came to victims during the Holocaust. There were similarities. The main similarity was the loss of life and loss of family. Many outside of the Jewish population experienced death as seen in Metod's autobiography. His retelling of the thousands of lives loss due to a resistance movement was common place during this time. That is, many lived in countries that experienced political instability before, during, and after the war. During… Continue Reading...

Japan and Confucianism in Art and Society

He was Chinese and lived during the 12th century AD. Japanese monks who had visited china in the 15th century AD learned the teachings of Zhu Xi and returned to Japan to spread the ideas of Neo-Confucianism. They led the revival of this kind of thought at a time when the country was in great need of direction because of much fighting that had happened on the island. Neo-Confucianism was a positive force in Japan at this time because it promoted unity among the three different main philosophies in Asia -- Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism (Tucker 495). Prior to… Continue Reading...

How Confucianism Impacted China

Confucianism in Pre-Modern china Confucianism comes from the Chinese philosopher Confucius, after whom the philosophy takes its name. Confucius lived from the middle of the 6th century BC to the first part of the 5th century BC and was a teacher of the values of those who lived in the days of Chinese antiquity. For Confucius, the greatest years of the Zhou dynasty had come in the three centuries prior to his birth.

Macroeconomics and Gas Stations

was that growing demand for oil internationally -- such as in china and India -- will spur higher prices in the global market. This is generally true, though supply forms an important counterpoint to demand. Rising demand only results in increased prices when supply grows more slowly than demand does. In recent years, OPEC has kept oil supplies high in order to suppress the price of oil, despite increasing demand (Plumer, 2016). The Business Cycle The concept of the business cycle is important to some economic theories. Basically, the business cycle is "the fluctuation in economic activity that an… Continue Reading...

Research Methods

European nations, can they be applied outside Europe, for instance, in nations such as Brazil, India and china? Does the fact that there are different understandings and operationalizations of sustainable development and fluctuating objectives of the indicators mean that the same cannot be applicable to different contexts? A follow-up to this study might be constructed by undertaking sustainability assessments. This will include ascertaining the various targets set by an expanse, for a certain time period, for instance, 2030 and 2050. The second phase would be calculating a trend line over preceding years with data and extrapolating such trends until… Continue Reading...

Oreo's Entry into China and India

Smart Cookie: SWOT Analysis Oreo's entry into china and India presented two different types of challenges to the successful American cookie company. Because these two cultures were different from the American culture that had made the cookie famous in the U.S. (and each different from one another), Oreo had to consider how best to approach these two markets in order to make its product a worldwide success. Both countries represented enormous market opportunities for the company -- and each posed their own unique obstacles. china, for instance, was not traditionally a cookie eating… Continue Reading...

How Hong Kong Responds to Fitness Clubs

vital to understand the culture of Hong Kong. As Mattel proved with its entry into china in the past decade, it pays to research the background and culture of the country that a firm is seeking to penetrate (Marquis, Yang, 2014). The fitness industry in Hong Kong has found a better reception, however, than Mattel did upon entering china -- that is because in Hong Kong the ground was already prepared for the fitness culture by way of Hong Kong's own cultural emphasis on perceptions of fat, beauty and fitness (Lee, 1999). Having cultural roots in both Western and… Continue Reading...

Someone to Watch over Me by Ridley Scott

Film Analysis Someone to Watch Over Me: Opening Sequence -- The Two Parties In the opening sequences of Ridley Scott's Someone to Watch Over Me (1987) two parties are depicted in which two different classes of people are shown at two very different social engagements. The first party consists of working class people -- mostly police officers and their wives (family and friends): it is a large but intimate gathering for a birthday celebration of the main character -- who is also being promoted to a new district in Manhattan. The party is set in the main character's home and… Continue Reading...

that offers more competitive costs combined with an acceptable level of risk. Of the four most preferable countries ( china, Indonesia, Mexico, and Slovakia), Mexico offers the best location. An important priority for the company as far as reducing its supply chain costs is concerned with locating its manufacturing operations in proximity to its major markets. While headquartered in New Zealand and with strong presence in Asia and Europe, Kiwi's major markets are in North America, which comprises 46% of its overall sales (Fawcett, 2014).

Uk Trade Policy and Its Departure from the Eu

-- and the idea currently presented the world by Russia and china is that a multi-polar world is much more beneficial to all than a uni-polar world wherein one major power controls all the levers of economics, trade, finance, etc. Simply between the UK and the EU there will be some constraint in terms of policy. For instance, internal tariffs will be eliminated when the UK leaves the EU and an external tariff will be placed on all trade. Determining the tariff relationship that the UK will have with Europe as well as other countries around the world will… Continue Reading...

Solow Growth Model and Unemployment

pools are no longer national, but transnational. The emergence of china (and other Asian nations) as economic powers, and the rise of global trade, have also had an influence on European labour markets, resulting in dramatic changes to key variables, changes that happened much faster than labour markets can adjust for naturally. 3. Some of the key questions about economic growth pertain to rising living standards. Growth models have sought to explain how some countries have been able to grow more rapidly than others. Looking at a few countries, it is easy to see that the US had a… Continue Reading...

Constructivism Theory in International Politics

to understand the dynamic state behaviors. For example, nuclear arsenal between china and the United Kingdom may be comparatively destructive, however, the United States will translate different meaning to this nuclear armament. In the international relations, china acts on the realist assumption and do not act on the objective structure of international systems. Although, states may pursue self-interests, they will also pursue wealth, power, and survival. Thus, constructivism argues that social norms and international cooperation are the major tenets of the international politics. Contrary to other theories of international relations that focus mainly on states as the major actors… Continue Reading...

Globalisation and Business Cultures and Practices

to differ from country to country. In a high-power distance society, such as china, for instance, management practices may be more reflective of hierarchy and bureaucracy, while in a low power distance society such as the UK management practices would tend to portray democracy and inclusivity. Hofstede's cultural model is one of the most seminal and cited theory on cultural differences. The theory has substantially influenced scholarly work on national cultures and provided valuable guidelines for international business management. Multinational organisations have been able to operate more effectively in foreign countries by adapting their management practices to local cultures.… Continue Reading...

Why 2017 May Be a Good Time to Buy Gold

other asset classes. Bonds and bullion (at Bitcoin -- thanks to china's capital controls) have been bid (Durden, 2017b). The second principle -- people respond to incentives -- is not far behind: voters responded to Trump's several pledges: 1) to build a wall and end illegal (and some forms of legal) immigration; 2) to "drain the swamp," 3) to bring back jobs from overseas (already this appears to be happening with Ford, Carrier and other companies making commitments to manufacture in the U.S.), 4) to "make America great again" by protecting and supporting American interests, 5) to "get along… Continue Reading...

Organizational Leadership

societies, on the other hand, give precedence to groups over individual people, as seen in Eastern (sociocentric, Japan, china) against Western (individualistic, UK, US) societies (Sanders, 2014). The sociocentric approach impacts team formation, communication processing, and community development (Sanders, 2014). Finally, geocentric multinationals accept managers from across the world so long as they're ready to work in any country or region across the globe (Kirloskar, Shetty & Inamdar, 2015). A geocentric attitude is best, as such people make decisions depending on what works best for a company and its workforce, without being constrained by biases, myopia or borders (Kirloskar… Continue Reading...

Global Warming in 21st Century

countries are the greatest contributors of global warming. Statistics indicate that the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan, Russia, Mexico, India, china, Brazil, and Indonesia account for more than 70% of all global emissions; with the U.S., Canada, Japan, Europe, and Russia leading in terms of per capita emissions (BBC News Magazine, 2016). Nonetheless, developed countries are the least affected. With more wealth and resources, developed countries are better placed to adapt and respond to the consequences of global warming (Maguire, 2014).

this perception of an economic growth is that the economy of china has been weak in recent periods. Taking into consideration that china is one of America's biggest trading nation, there are apprehensions that this might have an adverse impact on the U.S. economy. In addition, there is the concern of the decline in the prices of oil together with the substandard figures in retail sales (Schwartz, 2016). This is largely because oil and gas drillers had to dismiss and lay off over 2,000 employees solely in January and this was significantly adverse as it eradicated four years of… Continue Reading...

Asian Bioethics and Towards Reconciliation

the progress made in East Asian cloning laboratories, particularly in china and South Korea. Claims that scientists have successfully cloned human beings are unsubstantiated. However, the speculation does give rise to an important need to discuss bioethics from an East Asian perspective, using East Asian ethical frameworks like Confucianism. Recent Progress In 2006, the International Association for Bioethics' (IAB) held its world congress in Beijing, a sure sign that the global bioethics community is becoming less Euro-centric in its approach. Bioethics is starting to integrate non-European ethical and philosophical traditions. It is of the utmost importance to refrain from… Continue Reading...

President Trump's First Day

including cyber-attacks (Shaw, 2017). To support his harsh speech with regard to china, Trump had promised to declare it as a manipulator of currency. His website claimed his first-day agenda also included a request to the Congress to instantly deliver a complete Obamacare abolition. To some degree, this has already begun; the Congress is in its foremost procedural step, setting the scene for the replacement vote. Trump claimed in a news conference that following the approval of his Department of Health and Human Services nominee, a comprehensive plan would be in place to replace Obamacare. This is divergent from… Continue Reading...

Confucian Virtues and Gender

19th-early 20th century reforms and the subsequent collapse of the imperial system spelled the end for Confucianism in china. Although the effectiveness of the attempted reforms implemented in china in the late 19th through early 20th century undoubtedly had significant implications for the followers of Confucianism and its status as a state religion, it would be a stretch to say that it spelled the end of this religion, or ideology, and that it was completely eradicated. Although the followers of Confucianism today represent only a small fraction of the world's total religious community, there are millions of individuals who… Continue Reading...

Business News from Around the World

written are just the facts. Dou (2017) reports for The Wall Street Journal that Apple faces stiff competition in china as a result of Chinese "upstarts like Oppo" which are eating into Apple's smart phone sales. The article depicts the situation in china as one in which the American tech company has faced significant and substantial hurdles over the years -- and this one, the rise of competitor companies scratching away at Apple's market share -- is just the latest. Dou (2017) shows in vivid terminology that Apple is not unstoppable in china, as she uses words to dramatize the… Continue Reading...

Multinational Companies

Chinese or Korean managers are likely to favour bureaucratic and hierarchical procedures since china as a society is characterised by high power distance. Based on this premise, it would not be unusual for Samsung and Lenovo executives managing the firms' subsidiaries in Europe or North America, for instance, to make and enforce managerial decisions that exemplify the characteristics of a high-power distance society. In other words, as Samsung and Lenovo are strongly rooted in the Asian culture, their HRM practices in their foreign subsidiaries are likely to reflect home-country practices. Literature has extensively demonstrated the influence of the country-of-origin… Continue Reading...

Economic and Environmental Benefits Of Short Sea Shipping

the policy also saw an increase in the management of its different ports from external countries like china. The Chinese companies have already taken over some ports, and they are doing a tremendous job especially for short sea shipping. There are also environmental benefits that the country would reap. A study carried out on the impact of marine transportation reported that using sea transport increased fuel efficiency, reduced greenhouse emissions, traffic congestion, noise impacts, and infrastructure impact (Beskovnik, 2006). All this was in comparison to road, and rail transportation. The study confirmed that the most environmentally friendly mode of… Continue Reading...

Filipinos and the Catholic Church

Filipino Culture The Philippines is a band of islands running north to south between the South china Sea and the Philippine Sea. The country lies to the south of Taiwan, the east of Vietnam and to the north of Indonesia. Prior to colonization by the West in the 16th century, the Philippines consisted primarily of individual tribes. With the Spanish takeover, these tribes were either conquered or converted to Catholicism and brought under the secular rule of the Spanish crown and the spiritual rule of the Roman pontiff. This paper will describe the cultural experience of… Continue Reading...

Walmart Global Strategy

The failing stores in the USA have been complimented by the growing sales in other countries such as Mexico, china, Brazil and South Korea. The growth of the economies in these countries has enabled Wal-Mart to develop in these countries. For this reason, the focus of the company today is based on opening more and more stores in countries that are doing well economically such as the Asian countries such as Japan as well as those in Africa such as South Africa. However, it is important to note that the company has had mixed results in Europe with the… Continue Reading...

China and Confucianism Society

Chapter Four talks about the importance of education in a Confucian society, and Chapter Five is where the authors relay their main argument about how china can become a world leader if they can refine the "china model" to one that is applicable throughout the world. Critique The Great Equal Society offers some interesting viewpoints that are especially important to read from a Western perspective. These views can easily be applied to corporate ethics as well as… Continue Reading...

During her travels she reflects on her own relationship with her now deceased mother and grows in empathy towards her mother. She better understands her mother and the callous way that she treated her mother growing up, not understanding the importance of her past in china. By meeting her siblings in china, Jing-Mei comes to appreciate her mother more and even sees some of her mother in herself, particularly in the way she… Continue Reading...

History and Context Of the Tao De Ching Lao Tzu

When he reached a mountain pass, a gatekeeper named Yin Xi asked that Lao Tzu record his wisdom in writing. Lao Tzu agreed, and within a few days inscribed the 5000 Chinese characters that comprise the text of the Tao de Ching. According to the legend, Lao Tzu was never seen again ("History of the Tao de Ching,"; Knierim). The Content of the Tao de Ching There are many different English… Continue Reading...

Ip Man the Grandmaster and Women in Kung Fu

Man served as a detective in the Republic of china and took part in anti-communist work as part of his job, and when the Communists seized power in Foshan in 1949, Ip Man had to leave, which he did with his oldest daughter accompanying him. In Hong Kong he turned to Wing Chun as a way to make a livelihood. He eventually brought his family to Hong Kong in the 1950s but his wife did not wish to remain there and she left Ip Man to return to Foshan, taking the children with her. At that point, Nielson states,… Continue Reading...

As Gerald Mast and Bruce Kawin note, Hong Kong's films come from a unique place -- a place as unique as Hong Kong itself: Whether they are gritty and gory or sentimental and magical, whether they are gangster stories or fairy tales or martial arts spectaculars, the films defy the limits of space and time and endurance and even gravity in a realm of impossible wonders where dreams turn real, wounds never kill unless they bear a thematic charge,… Continue Reading...

Clean technology may steer towards what costs less to mitigate the damage coal inflicts on the atmosphere. china and the United States are responsible for much of the environmental problems seen in recent times. They are two major world powers and they need to be placed on strict policy changes to allow for less use of coal and introduction of more renewable energy. Some of these policy changes could be as simple as limiting the amount of livestock allowed to be raised in those countries and providing financial incentives to businesses in the form of tax breaks… Continue Reading...

Given the enormous political clout that these wealthy biotechnical firms can bring to bear on policymakers, market demand may become the driving force behind eugenics technologies with little or no governmental oversight. In this regard, Dorsey concludes that, “These corporations are, by their very nature,… Continue Reading...

Moreover, Snowden was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2013 for his actions (Schow, 2013).

For instance, Shaw notes that, “The good news for consumers is that Walmart has risen to retail supremacy through the bargain prices it offers” (p. 180). Likewise, the company was among the first to offer $4 generic prescriptions which… Continue Reading...

North Korean Missile Testing

Korea has done some damage to its reputation with its singular ally, china and even more damage with its ‘sometimes’ enemy, the United States. What is motivating North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un to act this way? Perhaps it is history. North Korea has a history of attempting to show its might time and time again. From the three-year long Korean War that began in 1950 to the current missile testing in the sea off Japan, there is something going awry in the country to cause such an increase in worrisome behavior. This essay will highlight the background of… Continue Reading...

My phone and all the apps and tools that come with it are practically a part of my own brain. I use Google Maps to navigate myself, social media apps to stay connected with the world, games to keep me occupied… Continue Reading...

Globalization Is Not Americanization

now provide the world’s manufacturing and industrial labor forces: china, India, and Brazil. Globalization is not the supremacy of American ideals, American values, or American democracy. Rather, globalization is the economic integration of marketplaces. Globalization tends to encourage free trade agreements, and free trade facilitates globalization. Yet globalization has not impeded or undermined national sovereignty and regional coalitions. Globalization is not Americanization because Americans—and the nation of the United States—are as dependent on other countries as they are on it. When Dyreson (2013) points out that the “promotion of American visions of affluence” has led to the popularity of… Continue Reading...

European Global Perspective

Europeans encountered. They met the Mughal Empire in India, and strong nations in china and Japan as well. These societies had greater organization and weaponry, and were thus able to have a somewhat different experience with the Europeans. The Europeans still sent missionaries, for example, to attempt to convert people in these countries, but were unable to gain the same level of military domination. Thus, the shape of the relationship was more trade-based. This different power dynamic has left many of those nations today with a much lower level of European colonial influence. There are still colonial cities in… Continue Reading...

Apparently, Nenzell claims that he tried to encourage fellow employees to stop but was silenced, censured, and threatened with legal action (Morrow 1). Of course, Ericsson officially denies all charges. Director of Media Relations Mikael Widell had stated originally “we welcome an investigation,” (Morrow 1). Others insinuate… Continue Reading...

Human Resources and Labor Shortage by 2030

Technology cannot make up for the labor shortage because technology does not supplant people; it actually just creates different jobs. Migration is one of the keys to resolving the labor shortage, but ultimately it comes down to the need for higher skilled workers all over the world. Upskilling is the key. Through upskilling, education, and training, the work force of the future can meet the demands for their services to perpetuate a robust global… Continue Reading...

A Historical Comparison Of Christianity and Buddhism

religion of India for long; the torch would soon be carried far beyond the Himalayas, into china, Korea, Japan, and Southeast Asia. A number of sects of Buddhism then emerged, due in part to local worldviews, customs, and traditions, but also simply to the passage of time. Schisms within Buddhism often became violent, as was the case between the Mahayana schools in Tibet and Bhutan. Likewise, schisms in Christianity sometimes became violent and led to the Great Schism that divided the Eastern Orthodox from the Roman Catholic Churches—a divide that still remains extant today. A similar divide emerged later… Continue Reading...

Gender Roles in Traditional East Asia

foundation of education in the traditional societies in East Asia, especially in china, Korea, and Japan. Confucius teachings affected many things in these societies including fixing gender roles between women and men. Based on these teachings, which influenced nearly every facet of life in the conventional Korean, Japanese and Chinese societies, placed women at a disadvantaged position. The teachings contributed to the development of a patriarchal environment in these societies, which worked to the disadvantaged of women. This paper examines how women exerted power and influence in a patriarchal environment in these three societies and what it teaches us… Continue Reading...

Future Of the Wto

a new power paradigm emerges in the 21st century, with china and Russia asserting a larger role in the global economic balance of power through trade, emerging nations want reassurance that the WTO will protect them and provide a legal framework that will help them to flourish. Lohr (2016) has shown that the “America First” approach is a direct challenge to the WTO’s purpose of ensuring a concept of fairness and freedom in trade that focuses more on equitability than it does on guaranteeing old power structures. However, in the past, the WTO has been used not so much… Continue Reading...

advantage in the production of minerals because it can produce minerals at a relatively lower opportunity cost compared to china. Another aspect that was influenced during the mining boom is the minimum wage. In the period, the minimum wage increased and in 2010 the policy set the price at $15. The marginal revenue product curves provides insight as to how much labor will be demanded at any particular wage or price. The increase in minimum wage gave rise to a decline in the number of employees that can be hired and therefore a decline in the labor force. In… Continue Reading...

South Africa might be the weakest of the BRICS for a company specializing in soccer – while soccer is a very popular sport there, this is mainly among poorer people who might prefer cheaper tekkies. An MNE, Nachum and Song point out, can be viewed as a portfolio of businesses, and those businesses have interdependencies. In this business, those interdependencies will typically manifest in the… Continue Reading...

With china set to challenge the hegemony of the Petrodollar with its own gold-backed yuan oil futures contract, keeping one’s savings in USD makes less and less sense. Even if the USD were to recover from its recent deterioration compared to the Euro or the Renminbi, the damage has already been done by QE and investors know it: the purchasing power of the dollar will never be as high tomorrow as it was prior to QE—and, in all likelihood, it is going to further decline.

Ups and Fedex Case Study

that happened? How should we interpret any increases? Mid-year 2004, china and the United States attained a revolutionary air-transportation covenant that increased the number of commercial cargo trips between the two nations four-fold. In addition, the agreement encompassed the permission for air-cargo hubs to be created in china and also sanctioned the right for commercial airlines to land at any accessible airport. Taking into consideration that United Parcel Service, Inc, together with FedEx Corporation were the sole all-cargo carriers at the time, it implied that they could expand their operations to the Chinese market. This major market prospect led to… Continue Reading...

Israeli-palestinian Conflict

clamp down on these entirely. Even a totalitarian state like china has trouble clamping down on terrorism, despite its control over the Internet and relatively small domestic terrorism risk. The United States, or any other open democracy with freedom of communications basically has no hope of entirely squelching the ideology. The only real way to "win" the war on terrorism is to crush the jihadist ideology itself. I am not a scholar of Islamic culture to the degree that I would know if this is possible. If one looks to history for an example, Japan is probably the best… Continue Reading...

These Chinese men took possession, they destroyed, they slayed and plundered every living thing they came across. They did not even spare pregnant women or children. They advanced from one city to the other ruthlessly killing everyone they came across until they came cross to Iraq. They marched to Arraniyya and Adharbayjan cities killing and destroying all its inhabitants except for those who were lucky to escape (Browne, 2009). Only a… Continue Reading...

If Apple wants to maintain its place in the tech market, it needs to return to its innovative roots and embrace a more visionary approach, similar to that which Elon Musk has brought with Tesla. With the price elasticity of demand impacting sales (and with a rehash of old products under new names impacting them as well), and with the market beginning to turn, Apple faces both consider headwinds and tailwinds and… Continue Reading...

Why Facebook Is Banned in China

Facebook is still banned in china, which took initiatives in 2009 to quell any sort of protest or governmental opposition sparked by social media sites like Facebook. Facebook is not the only Western site to be banned in china. Moreover, it has essentially a lookalike Chinese competitor known as Renren, which is a social media site that operates just like Facebook but complies with the Chinese government’s regulations with regard to the filtering of content posted on the site (Darwell, 2012). china’s government is very concerned about regulating content published… Continue Reading...

The World Population and Urbanization

much of the world is not interconnected and integrated as a result of globalization. What is felt in china or Japan will have an impact in the West too. Thus, the quality of life in all countries depends on planning and foresight so that the estimated increase of populations in urban cities does not catch people off guard in the coming decades. More investment, more emphasis on going green, and more concern for people’s and for the environment’s health is going to have to take front and center stage in national debates all over the world. Otherwise, the quality… Continue Reading...

USA By having a great quantity of low-priced work crews compared to the United States, it is no wonder that china as well as other developing nations, around the world, focus on the creation of labor-intensive items. For equivalent motives, the US may focus on the creation of products which are not only human but also physical-capital intensive due to the comparative wealth of a highly-knowledgeable work force and technically advanced products within the US.

Even china has committed to reducing its reliance on coal because of the potential of renewable energy technologies to provide the electricity needs of a growing population (Carrington, 2017, n.d.). Electric cars are also becoming more common, and batteries becoming far more efficient, thereby reducing the pressure placed on electricity grids while also reducing the pollution caused by discarded batteries (Carrington, 2017). Technologies are also enabling resource-dependent industries like construction and textiles to reduce their environmental footprints. Consumer trends are also driving the market… Continue Reading...

Hart-Landsberg (2006) offers some specific examples from china, India, and Southeast Asia, and also provides some quantitative measures to substantiate the primary claims. In “Three Cheers for Global Capitalism,” Norberg (2004) takes the polar opposite approach to the globalization debate, focusing on the net benefits of neoliberalism. As optimistic as Hart-Landsberg (2006) is pessimistic, Norberg’s (2004) article has about the same methodological weaknesses as Hart-Landsberg’s (2006) in that neither offers original quantitative research and both are biased towards their own point of view. Nevertheless, Norberg’s (2004) focus… Continue Reading...

How the Internet Has Changed Society

(2017) point out, the Internet has also been undermining authoritarian regimes worldwide, like china’s. Unlike the Arab Spring, in which grassroots movements capitalized on the Internet for their information dissemination, the example of china shows how governments respond to the Internet by changing domestic policies (Zhang, Tu & Kim, 2017). Social Media and New Media Identity and Community One of the biggest functions of the Internet particularly over the past ten years has been social media. Even beyond social media, the Internet has historically allowed for the emergence of and support for unique subcultures. Communities are no longer geographically… Continue Reading...

Britain’s Industrialization and China’s Stagnation

Selection of Readings and Comments Edited. (New York: Harper and Row, 1965), 72-74.] If one were to compare china’s society, practice and viewpoint towards experimentation, trial and error and encouraging great minds to tinker—the comparison is obvious. china did not have a society that encouraged such experimental inventing, science or processes. Many of these inventors that “invented” valuable products and services to the industrial revolution, did so because they had the time, space and encouragement to engaged in repeated trial and error, a valuable process that allowed them to stumble upon something worthwhile. During the time of the industrial revolution,… Continue Reading...

India’s India Central Board of Excise and Customs controls tariffs, which do fluctuate in response to market conditions. For example, in November of 2017, India imposed a whopping 50% import tariff on Canadian peas (Nickel & Jadhav, 2017). While it is understandable India might want to encourage more domestic pea production, “the short-term move to lift Indian market prices could impact India’s long-term food security needs,” (Nickel & Jadhav, 2017).

With the whole world watching in expectation, the police jumped on the opportunity to prosecute someone—anyone—for the murder of Lindbergh’s baby boy. Understandably, the prosecution’s case seemed tight enough. There were several bits of evidence that did seem to lead to Hauptmann, besides the gold certificates. Once the investigation was underway, the police did find an abundance of evidence that linked Hauptmann circumstantially to the kidnapping. One was that the police found more of the ransom money--$15,000 in total—in Hauptmann’s garage. Also found in Hauptmann’s garage was… Continue Reading...

H&m Trade Comparative Advantages

other nations, under whatever trade agreements exist between the EU and those nations. If India and china have competitive advantage in textiles, then they will win the trade. But by no means is H&M forced to trade within the EU. The reality that even with an OPT agreement, EU producers still do not have competitive advantage – that India and china exist as lower-cost producers – certainly calls into question the value of having the OPT agreements at all. The agreements probably served a fairly good purpose at the time – in this case, allowing new EU member states… Continue Reading...

The garment industry has been bolstered by Myanmar's participation in the World Trade Organization, and by the National Export Strategy that the government has set forth, the result being that this is one sector for which there is considerable optimism in the country (Micro-pak, 2017).

Sepsis

Sepsis Bundle Strategy on Outcomes of Patients Suffering from Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock in china” by Wang and associates (2012) started from the thesis that sepsis manifests such poor outcomes for patients as a result of delays in diagnosis and subsequent action. Hence the researchers compared the methods between treating sepsis with a group that had received Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) improvement bundles in emergency group and one that did not. The group that had SCC bundles had drastically improved outcomes. This study also provocatively demonstrated that some of the obstacles to full implementation of such guidelines are… Continue Reading...

Immigration Essay

thanks to railroad work, the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act restricted immigration from china. It was not until the opening of Ellis Island in 1892 that the country saw a greater influx of immigrants. This is because prior to Ellis Island, individual states regulated immigration, creating even tougher hurdles for immigrants of the time (Powell, 2008). While Ellis Island made it easier for immigrants from Italy, Poland, and Ireland to come to the United States, the Chinese immigrants were excluded for over sixty years from 1882 to 1943. The act showed the level of racial tension in the United States… Continue Reading...

Bitcoin Essay

attractive to buyers in countries that have volatile or weak currencies, like china. For this reason, governments are already trying to crack down on cryptocurrency exchanges (Hawkins, 2017). Relatively few people have bitcoin now, but if more people invest their money in bitcoin, the less the governments can regulate their own financial systems, including systems of taxation. Governments are likely to monitor bitcoin in the future, and disguise any attempt to shut down bitcoin as a means of protecting the public. Yet like file sharing online, cryptocurrencies cannot be fully regulated or monitored in any meaningful way in the… Continue Reading...

Culture Essay

Whether one is looking at the culture of china in 1000 AD or the culture of Athens during the Peloponnesian Wars, one can gauge the mindset of the people by examining how the groups within these places responded to these variables. To understand humankind at any one point in time at any one place, one need only examine the culture of that place in that time.

This was expected as in those days, nearly everyone depended on an agrarian economy and India and china had the majority of the world’s people so it made sense that they had the bulk of the GDP. “Starting around the 1820s—the decade economists Kevin H.

Opium Wars Britain China

Miscommunications between Britain and china abounded in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, culminating eventually in the Opium Wars. In the 1840 document from Lord Palmerston to the Emperor of china, and the 1792 letter sent directly from King George III to the Emperor of china both reveal British desperation to trade with china. Initially motivated by access to china’s tea markets, the British East India Company soon recognized the lucrative potential of diversifying into the global opium trade as well. Even prior to the newfound hunger for opium, the British sought free… Continue Reading...

Globalization and International Business

2009). Unit 5 A lot of American companies want to do business in china, because of the overwhelming size of the Chinese market. Yet, in addition to some significant cultural differences between the US and china, there are also some major political and legal differences. For one, china is not a democracy, but rather a Communist country. While there are some elements of capitalism in its economy, by no means does china run a capitalist economy in the Western sense of the term (CIA World Factbook, 2018). Instead, it maintains a strong level of central control, especially over large enterprise. Not… Continue Reading...

china Unit 5 A neo-mercantilist trade policy is defined as a situation where the state plays an active role in shaping trade, building a close relationship with the country's businesses. In doing this, the state will take steps to encourage exports, discourage imports, and generally seek to create the conditions where the nation's producers can thrive (Thoma, 2009). Based on this definition, it is hard to argue against the idea that china is employing a neomercantilist policy. The PRC exerts strong control over imports,… Continue Reading...

of imperialism in the 20th century. England, Germany, Russia, the U.S., Japan, and china—all of them engaged in efforts to expand their influence and grow their power. In every case, imperialism led to more conflicts and to more wars (Llewellyn et al., 2014). That is because the aim of imperialism is for a powerful state to seize control of weaker states outside its own borders and territories and govern them as colonies. The era of imperialism that existed in the 20th century following the Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the… Continue Reading...

The Fed, for instance, has been acting like a printing machine—and since 2008 with QE 1, 2 and 3, the money supply has increased dramatically, which has led to inflation (i.e., the devaluation of the dollar and the rising cost of just about everything). Ending the Fed, as Ron Paul puts it, would be one step in addressing the issue of inflation and the erosion of the value… Continue Reading...

They both helped spur one another’s growth and development.

American Policing on the World Stage The American “policing” role developed because of the Cold War, but it was primarily a means for protecting and assisting economic interests for itself and its allies as illustrated by recent events as well as earlier ones. When George H. Bush called for the Gulf War in order to push Iraq out of Kuwait, he cast Hussein in the role of “villain” and Kuwait as the “victim” in his address to Congress (Bush, 1991).

Chinatown and Pianist Film Comparison Polanski

Chinatown and The Pianist both exemplify Roman Polanski’s directorial style. However, they are vastly different films. An exploration of each, in comparison with one another, illustrates Polanski’s predilections as a filmmaker and possible also as an auteur. The 1974 film Chinatown bears a dark and gritty stamp that exemplifies in many ways the zeitgeist of the era. Building on the tradition of film noir and its romantic depictions of criminal underworlds, Chinatown is unique in its use of an unreliable narrator: the audience does not necessarily know the truth and is thus deprived of the treat of dramatic irony. Polanski’s… Continue Reading...

coupled with the restoration of domestic peace and tranquility. In fact, china was able to withstand pressures to change dramatically from its Confucian past. Confucian values persisted, preserving the age-old ethical guidelines that formed the foundation of Chinese society. In essence, china would be able to preserve its Confucian values even in the midst of global and domestic turmoil. It was also Confucian values and ethics that made peace possible: not as some would suggest, the adoption of Western ways of life, weapons, or worldviews. However, there was also a need to humbly accept the need for some reform. The… Continue Reading...

Corporations and Global Capitalism

could blow. The same goes for Apple exploiting laborers in china. These laborers are essentially like slaves in a factory who do not even get the kind of wages needed to support a family; their contribution to society is that we all get to have smart phones (so that we can even do our Amazon shopping while we are on the go using our phones to connect to the Internet), and they are certainly not in a position to develop themselves or their skills so as to become the masters of a trade. For that reason, one could easily be… Continue Reading...

The Book Trade in Early Modern China

Canton: The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge in china, 1834-1839,” while the increased ability to disseminate mass printed materials had notable effects within Europe, it also had a substantive impact upon the ways in which Europeans interacted with foreigners.

Culture is therefore very important to consider in any change management process (Kotter, 2007).

Social Innovation and Change

will feel more empowered to get out into reality—who can say? china china’s Social Credit System is a social change that allows the Chinese government to give each citizen a credit score based on their behavior. If the citizen has a bad social credit score, that person will be denied basic rights like being able to fly (Werth, 2018). Because china is a totalitarian state with its president having written his name into the Constitution, there is not a whole lot its citizens can do to protest this new social change.

The developing nations of china and India became more competitive, as china had access to more raw chemical materials to produce drugs and India began to graduate more highly trained specialists in the field of chemical engineering (Collis & Smith, 2007, p.6).

Communism in Latin America

in Latin America is as demoralizing there as it was in Soviet Russia. Even china has had to adopt new approaches to governance to fill the gaps in motivation left by Communism. Plato offered the Transcendental Ideal—i.e., God—but Communists offer nothing but devotion to one’s neighbor, which is only a motivator for saints, and not all people in Latin America (or anyone) are saints. For that reason, Communism leads to internal problems, especially where selfishness and corruption are concerned. Corruption has been at the heart of the Brazilian government for years, for example, and has led to the Left’s… Continue Reading...

Political Expression in Today's World

described as domination without coercion—the subordination of people within that state to their rule without question or revolt. In china, state power looks much more openly totalitarian: the state central plans all things and controls all aspects of society—even going so far recently as to launch a social currency system in which people receive a social credit score based on their good or bad behavior, which impacts their ability to do such things as fly, make purchases, apply for jobs.

Expressionism and Noir

Expressionism and Noir Noir is an optical kind of a prototype for development of subjects, influenced by a criterion of identity whose main mechanisms are matriarchal murder and the exclusionary movement of a mixture of race and sex. Given that the main structure of this prototype is brutal in nature, it follows that it is inseparable with crisis. The saying “what goes around comes around” holds true here. More so, our dedication to the procedure of development of subjects makes sure that the end product has been changed to some ambiguous, formless, and unstructured form (Gloria, 1987).
