Instead grouping nations into High, Middle and Low income is now considered more useful. Some nations are grouped into NICs (newly industrialised countries) NICs are middle income nations where exports and average earnings have risen at unprecedented rate since 1970s. Countries which are placed in that group are Brazil, Mexico and Argentina. A benefit with this type of global grouping is that it establishes a nation’s economic maturity; also it is able to classify stronger more established nations with other nations at similar stages. However there are some limitations which are, it is mostly categorised using nations GDP this can be done by looking at GDP per capita or GDP of nation as a whole, this could become hard to scale.
The dream job is more of a “job” as much as it is a “dream.” After I read the article, I have come to conclusion that sometimes you will go through obstacles. Owning your own business/company causes you to have unreliable income, no social life and no benefits. Say goodbye to a consistent and predictable income. No job is 100% secure and there is a good argument that being in control of your income via your own small business is more secure than a job. On any given day there is no certainty that you will make a great amount of money.
Over the course of the last few decades globalization has turned the world into an integrated economy instead of what it has been for most of its history, a series of relatively isolated economies. The more trading that takes place, the more wealth is created, and global trade across international frontiers has created more wealth than ever before in human history, and had helped lift more people out of poverty than ever before. Because of globalization, democracy has become an international norm. With the ‘international norm’, democracy brings values that are very important for the welfare of the people and the economy. In poorer countries, globalization brings the chance to sell their relatively low cost labor onto world markets.

On the other side there are descendants which are raised in wealth and don’t have an attitude or the same parental feeling toward the company as the founders had. I think that Eva and Dieter are willing to work, grow the company and earn a lot of money, but in this situation they look like spoiled children having the coolest toy in kindergarten. Today’s business world is cruel; there are taxes, rules, norms, regulations and other conditions that have to be followed. It makes production more expensive so I understand that leaving the Germany was logic idea. In the end it is probably much easier for Germans to find another job since it is one of the most powerful countries in EU.
Though another way of looking at it is that Apple is only waiting for the really good investments, and that opportunity offset the lost revenue of hoarding cash at a low interest rate. Stockpiling cash increases grumbles from stakeholders for dividend or share buy backs. Apple’s war chest has grown faster than even the loftiest projections, and for Apple’s CEO Tim Cock more money brings more problems. Approximately 64% of Apple’s cash is overseas, which induce the issue of hefty tax to bring in into the United States . An Apple share of stock is merely a claim on a portion of their future cash flow.
The most remarkable fact of the Uruguay round is that during the negotiations, the developing countries failed to form a common block against the developed ones. On the one hand, the newly industrialised countries (NICs), like south east Asia, had achieved high levels of productivity and had improved their competitiveness levels. Their effort to increase exports in terms of high capital gains rates (export profit) imply low local purchasing power. On the other hand, for the rest of the less developed countries (LDC), such as China, India and Brazil (current BRICs), a new GATT meant better prices in raw materials, a lending price stabilization and a general restructure of the international financial system. It was mainly the second group of
For example, they had reasonable level of roads and infrastructure, well-educated populations with existing skills, cultural traditional education and achievement, good geographical locations, government support and less ridged laws on planning and pollution. However the growth of the Asian Tigers can be seen badly. They focused on exports, arguably preying on the healthy economic state of developed nations. This isn’t sustainable within the global economy. By the 1990s their economies had expanded too fast and prices of property, stocks and shares had become overvalued.
If it were not for the protection of patents, big companies, with their robust capacity, would surpass the small business entrepreneurs in speed and cost of production and thereafter suppress them completely. However, the excludability that patents impose on non owners of the inventions does not see capacity. This helps small business entrepreneurs to practice their own inventions while big companies remain hands-tied. ii) Revenue from licenses, sale or infringement. Licensing ones technology to others is another good way of making money.
