Technically, China does have some laws against taking bribes but there is a fine line between bribes and gift giving. It is an acceptable practice to give gifts to the officials that a company works with because it shows respect and that you value their friendship. The problem is that the gifts are becoming more and more expense to ensure the company gets everything that is needed to open a division in their country. The Chinese government is getting more aggressive with cracking down on officials taking bribes in order to fast track business licenses, but there is still a long way to go. According to FCPA, it is illegal in the United States to bribe or accept a bribe in return for favors, and most statewide business will abide by these laws.
(8/10) Andrew Mitchell believed that the best solution to resolving the dispute over the introduction of new technology was to close the UK factories and move production to a purpose built factory in China. Do you agree with this view? Justify your decision. (18 mark) One argument to suggest that Andrew was right in his decision was that before his plans were put into place Burkinshaws efficiency was beginning to decline. This means that the productivity of their workforce has been declining in comparison with their competitors.
Out of Control Introduction Malcolm Potts (2006) labeled the One-Child Policy as painful for a generation, but “oneof the most important social policies ever implemented.” From a removed perspective, he isright. China’s population, although still unwieldy, is on a trajectory to become manageable in thefuture. The nation’s economy is thriving, and China is quickly becoming a world power in manyrespects. However, the One-Child Policy has affected its people in a variety of manners notrepresented in that wide-scoped national picture. Anthropologists Faye Ginsberg and RaynaRapp point out that reproduction is not simply a biological issue.
If this little detail would have been taken more seriously China dominant future could have been predicted more quickly. The Marriage Law was a big step toward women equality in China and opened a lot of doors for women. Although it may have opened a lot doors many women did not follow through with the law. It may have been difficult for women to break their old ways. Even though China was not very develop country at the time this may have been the beginning of a big change for China.
They formed their own community and were also the victims to one of the worst acts of discrimination. Therefore, although the Chinese immigration were heavily discriminated against by the United States, they were still crucial to socioeconomic development of the United States in the late 1800s. The Chinese immigration was crucial to the economic development of the United States because it brought immigrants for the gold rush, the transcontinental railroad, the farms, as well as other small businesses. The first wave of Chinese immigration was during the California gold rush in order to escape their poverty-stricken land or to provide their family with a better life. When they arrived in America, the immigrants would work in mines because mining was a big part of the country's economy during that time.
Yahoo! In China Case Study The Yahoo in China case provides a prime example of some of the many difficulties associated doing with international business. Doing business in China tends to be even more difficult than that of other countries, due to their rigid rules and regulations. While I agree with Yahoo releasing the name of Shi Tao to the Chinese government, I do feel that they could have done a better job of going about the situation. However, I understand that privacy concerns and the right to free expression are central to not only this particular case with Yahoo, but with other companies doing business in China.
The Chinese were a great help to our country by providing cheap labor, but because of that they took jobs from the American laborers who desired higher wages and because the overwhelming amount of Chinese immigrants assimilating into our society we passed the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 that placed a restriction on immigration of Chinese laborers. If we view this situation in the point of view of Indians how would us, Americans, feel if the Indians prohibited the immigration of the earliest “Americans or Pilgrims” who came to the
There are also workers and suppliers, who don’t think that Wal-Mart is good for America. Many local businesses are out of business because they cannot compete with Wal-Mart’s low prices. By striving for lower prices, Wal-Mart turned to outsourcing and now the majority of company’s suppliers come from China. Wal-Mart’s outsourcing has a dual effect: it provides low prices for products, more earnings for shareholders and on the other side it drives American suppliers out of business, which means people are losing their jobs. However, some argue that outsourcing unskilled labor will open up opportunities and will lead
Take for example someone who lives in China, although for us we think learning Chinese would be almost impossible and sometimes can not imagine ever speaking it, that is because it is what’s natural to them from an early age. People worldwide have different view points on life, speak different languages, act differently, have different morals, etc. since they grew up in different societies, so it would be the same for someone growing up in isolation. Growing up and adapting to a culture is both mental and social, and affects the way any person thinks. I find that survival would become anyones first priority and natural instinct.
