This has significantly affected many industries, such as insurance, banking, retailing and travel. To what extent do you think that increased internet usage inevitably reduces producers’ profits? Justify your answer with reference to organizations and/or industries that you know. Over the past decade, Shopping on the internet has skyrocketed with internet sales reaching almost £30 billion in 2012, which accounts to almost 10% of total sales in the UK. This is due to the increased possession of Internet devices such as: smartphones, laptops and computers. It has become much easier and simpler for consumers to buy products online using these devices. Increased internet security has also increased demand for online shopping due to customers being confident in undergoing an online transaction. Another advantage of selling items on the internet is that it gives you the opportunity to advertise your or another companies products. Over 80% of the British population uses the internet regularly which opens up a massive market for advertising and for companies to show their products to users of the internet.

...Name: Vrunda Patel Subject: International Business Prof: George Repic Date: 1/22/2014 Module 1 - Homework assignment How have changes in technology contributed to the globalization of markets and production?  Would the globalization of production and markets have been possible without these technological changes? Answer: Changes in technology have contributed to the globalization of markets and production by bringing the world closer. I believe that improvements of technology in internet, microprocessors, and transportation not only make our lives more convenient, but also enable the growth of globalization of production and markets. For example, improvements in transportation technology have made it easy for companies like Coca-Cola, Levi Strauss, Sony and McDonalds to make their products available worldwide (Charles W.L. Hill, 2013). Changing technology; has also increased the rate of production, allowing goods to be produced and distributed more efficiently. Similarly, if communication does not exist, people around the world will not get the opportunity to connect and do business together. The ability to negotiate around the world has facilitated by improved communications technology. Moreover, the decreasing cost of communication makes coordinating and controlling global environment even more effective and efficient (Charles W.L. Hill, 2013). Most importantly, the impact that Information Technology has created has been tremendous. Companies now market worldwide......

...ERADICATING POVERTY IN AFRICA Poverty is generally considered as the state of being poor: conditions of abject, extreme poverty, which has been on the increase in Africa, with particular reference to Northern Nigeria (with diseases like polio, measles and leprosy being pandemic and of course street begging on the increase). Aloku (1975) and Townsend (1962) refers to poverty as a lack of command over basic consumption needs, which means, in other words, that there is an inadequate level of consumption giving rise to insufficient food, clothing and or shelter, and moreover the lack of certain capacities, such as being able to participate with dignity in society, which Dudley (1975) submits that there is the need for personal growth in Nigeria. The point related to the sociological event is that poverty has equally been defined as the inability to attain a minimum standard of living (World Bank Report, 1990). Poverty has also been conceptualized in both the “relative” and “absolute” sense. And again Dudley (1975) sees poverty largely in the light of the need for personal growth in Nigeria. The report constructed two indices based on a minimum level of consumption in order to show the practical aspect of the concept. The first index was based on country specific poverty line, and the second was global, allowing cross country comparisons (Walton, 1990). This is generally based on whether relative or absolute standards are adopted in the determination of the minimum income...

...Selecting process is very crucial for any organization. The main goals of the employees’ selection process are as follows: 1.  Hire the right person at the right job who have the capability to adjust effectively in the current organizational culture. 2.  Every selection involves the cost of hiring and training, and the selection process should be such that the organization is able to achieve cost efficiency in training and hiring. Moreover, bad hires may create the negative environment in the organization. 3.  The objective of the selection process is to stay away from any type of legal concerns which may arise due to the wrong hiring decision. This may be on the basis of discrimination. ------------------------------------------------- Organizations use several selection methods and the method of selection depends on the type of skills, knowledge and experience required for the particular post. For instance, for the selection of the software developer the organization has to either carry out the campus recruitment or advertise for the post in the newspaper, so as to get specific set of skills. These two methods of selection are entirely different, as with the campus recruitment the organization will be able to hire required skill set but fresher, but with the newspaper advertisement, the organization will be able to get the particular skills set along with experience. Moreover, the experienced one can face difficulty in adjusting with the new culture while the......

...The Declaration of Independence as we know it is one of, if not the most powerful document in the United States of America. It encompasses government empowerment and basic human principles which includes ‘freedom’, but, are we truly liberated? The main priority of this document is to abolish tyranny and entitle people to unalienable rights as stated in the reading which includes the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That in itself is contradicting to what it wants to achieve, which takes us back to the question about liberation. Firstly, the contradiction between the claim that "all men are created equal" and the existence of American slavery attracted comment when the Declaration was first published in 1776. You can’t help but think that the quote "all men are created equal" was untrue or at least that it does not apply to coloured people. Slaves were still held unwillingly and forced to work under harsh treatment from their masters. And this exclusion of slaves was purposely done to better such things as the economy of the country, and the perception of slaves and women and Native Americans. Secondly, The Declaration of Independence, the second paragraph explains the purpose of government, that the government is a servant of the people, not vice versa, and that people have the right to change a government that doesn't meet their needs and to create a new one. It then goes into detailing a list of abuses of George III as the reasons the American......

Buss Ethics

...Question 3 Occupational licensure is inconsistent with the basic principles and values of capitalism. The major principle of capitalism is that capitalism promotes free market system in which one’s “freedom of opportunity” is unrestrained. Capitalism requires unrestricted access to or private ownership of the major means of production and distribution, which include the economic assets and productive resources. Besides, Adam Smith’s argument defends capitalisms that people will produce the greatest good for all if they are to pursue their own interests guided by an invisible hand. However, occupational licensure violates the ideal of the free-market. It restricts the entry into the particular field and permits the professional to enjoy monopoly in the provision of services and keep the price high. Therefore, licensure illegitimately restricts individual freedom to pursue their desired career. In doing so, passionate individuals have their freedom taken away by such quotas. Second, it reduces the alternatives available to the public, thus, it reduces the average productivity and quality of services too. Question 5 The idea about which doctors’ high incomes are due more to artificial restrictions on the free market than to the inherent value of their services is not a fair picture of the medical profession. Indeed, the purpose of licensure that contravenes the principles of laissez-faire is to raise the standard of competence and the quality of care. Moreover, the higher......

...Home-Style Cookies Ashford University BUS 644 Professor Michael Snell August 29, 2011 Briefly describe the cookie production process. Everything starts when management gets the orders from the distributors, which are then scheduled and put onto a list. The list for the day is then given at the beginning of the shift to the person in charge of mixing. The person then checks the master list for the ingredients needed for each type of cookie. The person in charge if mixing then puts the information into the computer and the computer figures out what is exactly needed according to the quantity and the type of cookies needed. The computer then sends the information it configures to the storage silos that are located outside of the plant where the main ingredients are located. All of the ingredients needed are automatically sent to the giant mixing machines where everything is mixed together into a batter. The batter is then put into cutting machines that cut the batter into individual diagonal cookies. The cut cookies are then put onto a conveyer belt that will send them through one of the two ovens. There are some cookies that have filling and those cookies are first filled and folded before they are sent into the oven. Once the cookies come out of the oven they are then sent onto spiral cooling racks 20 feet high and three feet wide. As the cookies are finished with the cooling process workers manually put the cookies into boxes and while they are doing this they......

...Buss 4 January 2012 To what extent is diversification the best strategy to achieve profitable growth? (40 marks) Diversification, one of the four strategies in the Ansoff’s Matrix, is a corporate strategy to enter a new market or industry which the business is not currently in, whilst also creating a new product for that new market. Profitable growth is a term often used by CEOs when describing the firm’s strategic objective. Business growth can be achieved either by boosting the revenue of the business with greater product sales or service income, or by increasing the profitability of the operation by minimising costs. Diversification plays a great role in the growth of many large businesses, however, the extent of the growth is largely dependent on factors such as: the type of industry that the business is in or the risks involved into entering new markets. There are many ways in which to diversify a business, all which may be included in the strategy to achieve profitable growth. The most straightforward of these is to provide a natural extension of the goods or services that you already offer to customers. The best example of business that has undergone diversification is Samsung. Samsung is best known for its smartphones, tablets and televisions, however Samsung’s business activities and operations are spread wider than just those two important markets. The electronics giant also makes military hardware, apartments, ships and operates a Korean amusement park. ......
