Besides building a wall to keep out the invaders, they were also thinking about initiating an offensive campaign to drive the Huns out of the neighborhood, creating defensive garrisons, or to make diplomatic and economic ties with them. The offensive campaigns would have cost too much and it would have been too risky. Defense garrisons respond too slowly to counter lightning attacks on a long border. They tried making diplomatic ties with the nomads several times but the Chinese saw themselves as a much superior empire than that of the nomads.

This act stated “any Chinese person or person of Chinese descent was deemed to be in the country illegally unless he or she could demonstrate otherwise. It also denied the right of bail to Chinese in habeas corpus proceeding, and required all Chinese in the U.S. to get a certificate of residence within a year.” b. Fong Yue Ting refused to register, while Lee Joe tried too, but was denied because his witnesses were Chinese and the law required “at least one credible witness other then Chinese” to attest.

Avon didn’t have much option as to cease sales operations in China after they banned direct selling and had to organize themselves with retail facilities. Avon could have just taken a different retail approach as opposed to direct selling. They could have also cease all sales and tried to sell through other retailers. Another option would have been to continue direct selling until the deadline and have to make other decisions. Another option could have been to get out of China but that would not be for sales because Avon would be losing a lot of money.

The car companies had to comply if they wanted to sell cars in California, and at first they did. However, as the years went on, the car companies fought the law saying that the rising percentage of how many electric cars they had to sell per year was too high.

Case Analysis- Wal-Mart Introduction The implementation of Wal-Mart’s strategy in China has failed to achieve the desired sales results. Despite being the leading retailer in the world, Wal-Mart’s model of success that provides a key competitive advantage in the U.S. does not equally translate to diverse international communities. Likewise, Wal-Mart struggled in Germany and eventually withdrew by selling its stores to rival Metro.

Consideration of the new law comes as the number of cars in China has exploded. According to China Daily’s report that by the end of 2010, there were more than 200 million cars plying China's roads, with another 20 million more expected to be added this year.

In 2009, Chinese courts handed the death sentence to a 30-year-old company executive who killed four people and injured one more while driving drunk in the western city of Chengdu.
On the same note, property owned by the government is not usually able to be taken to meet these obligations. The debt holders in a sovereign government can only take legal action in order to receive payment when the government allows them to.

However, people should have the notion that the life does not work in the idea of "I want", but more of in the idea of "I am able to".
