The means to achieve it were foreign finance for infrastructure investments and the protection of infant industry. The theoretical tool behind it was development economics, a new branch of economics.
With such distinctions, companies’ performance before, during and after the Great Depression and the World War II differentiated its results based on the managerial practices each company adopted. For instance, Philips, a Japanese company that initiated its operations in the late 1890s, focused on what P. Ghemawat, in his AAA Triangle Framework, defines as Aggregation which is “the attempt to deliver economies of scale by creating regional or global operations while standardizing the product offering, and by centralizing development and production processes”. Years later, the company broadened its product lines and began evolving from a centralized company to a decentralized sales organization. At this time, The Great Depression brought with it trade barriers and high tariffs, which limited the ability of foreign companies as Philips to compete with local ones. In response, Philips followed an Adaptation strategic approach by building local national production facilities to compete effectively

Free trade has always been key to integration, whether regional or global, hence, the main driving force behind economic integration in Europe is the free movement of goods and services . The Treaty of Rome obliged European Economic Community member states to establish a customs union (CU) in 1958 for the Six, i.e. the six countries which had formed the European Coal and Steel Community in 1951.
Marx: Surplus Value and Class Conflict Karl Marx focused a great deal of his study on capital and capitalism. He argues that surplus value has been created in capitalism. He also argues that this has created a conflict between different classes. In order to understand Karl Marx and his ideas stated above, we must first define surplus value.

Wind, Cardozo & Richard’s Model Market Segmentation Market segmentation is the first step that ultimately enables a firm to maximize the return on its investment.

Financial Intermediation in the Early Roman Empire PETER TEMIN I evaluate the effectiveness of financial markets in the early Roman Empire in this article. I review the theory of financial intermediation to describe a hierarchy of financial sources and survey briefly the history of financial intermediation in eighteenth-century Western Europe to provide a standard against which to evaluate the Roman evidence. I then describe the nature of financial arrangements in the early Roman Empire in terms of this hierarchy. This exercise reveals the extent to which the Roman economy resembled more recent societies and sheds light on the prospects for economic growth in the Roman Empire. I n this article I use a theoretical hierarchy of financial sources to evaluate the effectiveness of the financial markets in the early Roman Empire.
