Marina Machado Subject: Case 2 - Coping with Corruption in Trading with China Prof - 24/02/2014 1 - List all the different types of bribes, payments, or favors represented in this case under (a) FCPA, (b) Criminal Law of PRC, and (c) Law Against Unfair Competition of the PRC. Why is each either legal or illegal? Under the FCPA, there are two major types of bribes involved which are extortion and regular bribery. These two types of bribes are somewhat similar but are not the same depending on how they are being demanded for. In the sense that bribery is totally illegal anywhere in the world while extortion is not considered illegal in some counties but it is illegal in the United State.
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.
counterfeiting, or concealing one's true feelings, is part of this motif. everyone seems to lie; good characters as well as evil ones engage in deceit as they attempt to conceal their feelings: beatrice and benedick mask their feelings for one another with bitter insults; don john spies on claudio and hero; don pedro and his 'crew' deceive benedick and beatrice. who hides and what is hidden? how does deceit function in the world of the play, and how does it help the play comment on life in general? a central motif in the play is trickery or deceit, whether for good or evil purposes.
They are: new pressures, bigger rewards for winning, temptation, and trickle-down corruption. Each one of these pitfalls has led to cheating in all arenas of business and can especially be seen in the use of steroids by athletes. The first pitfall that leads to cheating according to Callahan is new pressures. As Callahan says, “[New pressures] in today’s competitive economy, where success and job security can’t be taken for granted, it’s increasingly tempting to leave your ethics at home” (Callahan 20). This is especially true in sports.
Read the case study and map the fraud case to the appropriate expense report fraud flow in Chapter 7 (Exhibit 7.4 or 7.5 or 7.6). In a 2-3 page paper address the following questions: which fraud flow and specific steps did the fraudster manipulate and how will the new processes installed deter, detect or prevent this from recurring? Travel and expense reimbursement schemes may seem like they are an easy fraud to perpetrate, however, the recurring problem is that people wind up getting too greedy and get caught because of it. Lucky for us the fraudster’s greed leads them to get sloppy when they believe that a fraud is going to continue to go undetected. This was the case in the article “Fashioning a Fraud” by Bethmara Kessler.
According to Roads Murphy, the Chinese regarded the Westerners as an uncivilized people, but more ill-mannered than any foreigners, and as potential troublemakers and corrupt beings that will lead them astray of Chinese morality. During the early modern period were Kangxi and Qianlong sat on the throne for the longest time in the history of China, the great majority of them were content with their own far older and more sophisticated ways and religious traditions, and there were few openings for what were seen as alien faiths, promoted by resented outsiders the West, which in the book of Jonathan Spence, The Question of Hu, narrates the story of the two cultures colliding. The two greatest emperors of China, Kangxi who reigned the longest
China is a Cyberthreat to America Many Americans believe that China is a cyberthreat to America. A cyberthreat is defined as the possibility of a malicious attempt to damage or disrupt a computer network or system. There is a number of reasons many American citizens and government officials feel threatened by China. If China ever successfully hacks into Americas data base systems,there would be a major economic downfall. But some also think that the threats are due to Americas weak cyber policy.
The Great Gatsby Money can’t buy love, but it can make you act differently and lie to your loved ones. In the novel The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald there were many themes but the two biggest ones that I noticed that could be compared to each other were lies and deceit, and money changes the way people act. These two things were a big part of the 1920’s and it is the same way to this day. The first theme that stood out to me was lies and deceit. In the novel couples cheat on each other and lie about it.
Ethics in sports is just as important as ethics in any other situation. To use steroids or any other performance enhancing drugs is just unethical and not fair to the game. Many records have been broken, but as fans how can we be sure that these records have been broken fairly? Frank Deford suggest “Maybe we’re more programmed to accept cheating in sports In this country since we grew up bitterly tolerating such utter corruption and hypocrisy in college athletes we love” (Source E) This may in fact be the sad reality. So in conclusion if Major League sports want to protect themselves for the future they must act now and enforce stricter drug testing policies.
This leads to many athletes scouring quick ways to get a boost in their athletic performance, which are not legal. When they are charged of doping and drug use, they may lie away, but when they are tested to check if they really used any performance enhancing drugs or not, there is little escape from the naked truth. It is clear when truth faces falsehood, falsehood perishes. So, some people think that mixing truth with falsehood can save them from the guilt of telling a lie and reap the benefits of telling a lie. But this is an even dangerous refuge and can lead to unexpected results.
