The reason why gin helped the population grow is because after the government put a tax on gin people began to have less miscarriages and the crime rate deceased. Gin helped the population increase because after the government banned the public from making gin and selling it unless they had a licence to sever it. The government also put a tax on gin so only very few people could afford it. Another reason why the government didn’t want people to drink gin is because it encouraged laziness, criminal behaviour. The government weren’t making money on it because it was easy to brew at home and it was also being imported from Holland.
Although United States may be in a recession and Vanilla Bicycles doesn’t offer the cheapest bikes around, averaging 7,000 dollars a bike, it hasn’t stopped bicyclist from buying high-quality American-made bikes. The company has an income of 300,000 dollars a year, earning 100,000 dollars in profit, which is more than enough to keep White from ever having to become a bike messenger again. This article reminded me of Chapter 2, Competing in Global Markets, due to the reasons of other bicycle companies that are imported into the country with a much lower resale value. Not only does White face competition from bikes made in China, but other American-made
This leads to little competition. For example, Paris has a total of about to 52 total attractions; whereas Hong Kong’s total attractions are just 16. Another contributing factor to Hong Kong’s poor performance was that the local French people had absolutely no knowledge of the Disney characters or what they were. 2. Some foreseeable factors include: * Being unfamiliar with other cultures * The French’s attitude towards the American lifestyle due to EuroDisney being thought as “American imperialism--plastics at its worst” * Prohibiting alcohol consumption even though the French often drink wine with their meals * Difference in attitudes/opinions about American/European tourists/parents * How the World Fair in Sivelle and Barcelona Olympics attracted more tourists in 1992 * The European Recession in the 1980s, the Gulf War of 1991, extremely high interest rates, weakening of several currencies Some controllable factors include: * Incorrect assumptions about designs, marketing, prices * Advertising too early became really expensive * Poor management: made decisions based on their needs/wants * Again, the ban on alcohol consumption in the park *
Reason 2 Lack of Innovation * Chrysler’s sluggishness in launching innovative models when its Japanese competitors kept coming out with new designs resulted in the company’s declining sales. * Japanese companies continue to offer fuel – efficient vehicles to consumers while Chrysler continued to produce fuel – guzzling trucks. * After merge with Daimler, Chrysler introduced some new models but those models did not get much consumer attention. * Chrysler could not invest enough money in research and development even Cerberus has bought a majority stake in Chrysler due to the declining sales of Chrysler’s vehicles. * Chrysler’s products have also historically underperformed in terms of quality, which remains a significant challenge.
However, the seasonal number of lost hives has increased significantly in the last few years. This recent spike has a couple red flags; it comes without obvious cause and the honey bees seemingly abandon their hives en masse. Unfortunately, it is not just concentrated to the United States and has become a global issue with Europe and China experiencing the same dramatic drop in honey bee population. Without honey bees, consumers could face challenges with food shortages or the loss of the food entirely. Unknown to most, honey is not the most important measure of a honey bee.
Huge initial investment: The high cost of setting up manufacturing plants, transportation channel and distribution channel is a big barrier for new entrants. Coca-Cola has huge market share Economies of scale: Coca-cola enjoy large economies of scale that help in keeping the costs down. A new entrant would not be able to match the cost . The threat of new entrants is considered low in the automobile industry. The industry has been in operation for a relatively long period of time and in several companies, such as Volkswagen and Ford have successfully reached economies of scale.
The existing scientific and artistic standard had been achieved during the ancient Roman period but the following Dark Ages during 600 to 1600 AD started because they weren’t as wealthy as they were in the Roman period and had no money for spending on luxuries such as art and knowledge. Also the spread of Christianity oppressed people from thinking and creating, maybe this is why this period is sometimes called the Middle Ages and sometimes it’s called the Dark Ages. Even now new forms of art and science depend on having enough money spent on them as well as a free environment so that the artists and scientists are not scared.it is impossible for art and science to progress while under threat, For example Galileo was put under house arrest for his whole remaining life after he said that the world went around the sun. Although during Ancient Roman times Italy was the center of world art there were other incredible artistic and scientific centers all around the world, towards the Renaissance period Rome became richer again so it became possible to travel easily between different countries and cultures. When trade began between these countries both science and art spread and evolved.
Rich stayed rich and didn't benefit poor at all. This causes the downfall because the wealth was not evenly distributed and also due to them not advancing technology, too much of Rome's resources were being used and wasted on useless desires. “Christianity, in the words of Friedrich Nietzsche, “was the vampire of the imperium Romanum—in a night shattered the stupendous achievements of the Romans(Santosuosso 98). Christianity is believed to be one of the biggest factors in Rome's fall. As the religion grew to their army, soldiers began to become more peaceful.
Ethical Issue at Rostov Company The Rostov Company is a well-recognized beverage corporation that has the possibility to do well in Russia and internationally. However, the company has experienced ethical issues, which led to some stockholders to lose confidence. While the company has engaged in philanthropic contributions to Russian educational and communal programs, they also were the focus of European governments due to large-scale pollution, and Rostov’s slow responses, in 1999. The result was loss of foreign government support. Belgium, for example, prohibited a marketing campaign for Rostov’s new products.
Although no beverage can supplement the perks of daily exercise and a well-balanced diet, moderate consumption of wine could be beneficial. Research shows that consuming red wine, responsibly, can have significant health benefits on your heart, cholesterol, and acts as an anti-cancer agent. While too much alcohol can harm your body, recent research suggests that one or two glasses of wine a day may actually help your health. Wine and health is an issue of considerable discussion and research. Wine has a long history of use as an early form of medication, being recommended variously as a safer alternative to drinking water, an antiseptic for treating wounds and a digestive aid, as well as a cure for a wide range of ailments from lethargy and diarrhea to easing the pain of child birth.
