BUS 245-03 Assignment 1 Fall 2013 Finance/Business in the news Elizabeth Johnson Bailout of the Auto Industry-Toyota There have been so many incidents of large corporations needing bailouts within the auto industry and Toyota is just one of the many that have needed government assistance because of financial troubles. Some people may wonder if it was or is ethically right to do something like this because of all the controversy behind it like the CEO's and the higher ups misusing the money the government gave them to bailout and help their companies.

As same as the case study said, Alex and his company had been having very tough time. “… when the American economy was just falling into a recession caused by the combination of the bursting of the telecom and dot.com bubble and the terrorist attacks of September 11” (CAMERON AUTO PARTS (A). Financial condition of Cameron Auto was precarious.

The Great Depression lasted in America for at least ten years, but it took twenty-seven years to get the economy back above depression levels. To this day, the reasons that lead to the Great Depression are still being debated; although there are a few reasons that historians and ecoomics have agreed on.

RUNNING HEAD: AMERICAN AIRLINES American Airlines and US Airway’s Merger By Aveon Sims Strayer University BUS 508 Contemporary Business Professor Jean Fonkoua August 24, 2014 Abstract American Airlines has suffered tremendous profit losses over the last few years. The losses have been so great that the company filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The news for the Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection was a shock to many, considering the fact that they had enough money to operate and cover their losses through the following year. The merger indeed was a great decision on behalf of American Airlines. The merger itself was questionable.
The commercial real estate market isn’t as bad off as the residential market, but it has a significant ripple effect on the mind state of the nation. General Motors (GM) is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, it’s predicted 21,000 jobs are to be cut, and they are discontinuing Pontiac and Saturn. They proposed nationalization, but the government says they have no interest in running a car company, and they stand behind a “self- reliant” auto industry. GM will stick with its four best- selling brands, GMC, Cadillac, Buick and Chevrolet. GM used to be the top auto company in the world.

Three years ago, the nation barely avoided a double-dip recession, after emerging in the second half of 2018 from the longest period of U.S. economic contraction in eight decades.

Capital One Melvin Jackson Professor Shawn Richmond Sr. Seminar in Business Administration May 31, 2010 Identify and describe the key environmental forces that have immediate strategic implications for Capital One. Two key environmental forces that have immediate strategic implications are political and economic. Legislators have been rallying consumer support to reform credit card policies due to the failing economy. Since so many consumers are without jobs or have taken pay cuts in the last few years, the ability for them to repay their debts is severely diminished. Credit card companies had been charging outlandish interest rate.
This shows that without a Laissez-Faire government, mass production would have struggled to prosper so much domestically. Mass production was however still greatly important as it meant that goods could be manufactured more cheaply and efficiently.
