Google as the world's most famous search engine, enter the Chinese market is indeed to Chinese netizens to bring a new search experience. Although some sensitive words were been censored in China, I still suppose Google is a powerful search engine. 2. Was Google’s refusal to comply with the Department of Justice investigation inconsistent with the company’s cooperation with Chinese censorship policies? Yes, finally Google’s refusal to comply with the Department of Justice investigation inconsistent with the company’s cooperation with Chinese censorship policies and opt out of the Chinese market.
If yes, give the reasons why; if no, why not? Yes, it could be a success. China and Japan are big markets, however Starbucks should take into consideration that these cultures are not particularly coffee drinking cultures. Another problem is that there is an economic distance. $4,90 is normal for a coffee in America, however this could be very expensive in other countries like China.
There are many different arguments as to why or why not the United States may stay as the top dog, but the main outline is that the declinists believe that the economic situation that the United States has gotten into is irreversible and/or will lead to the United States falling back in the pecking order of the world. Which I personally find absurd because we bounced back from the great depression right? Declinists also believe countries such as China are growing too fast for the United States to keep up with or compete with. Whereas the optimist that don’t believe the United States is going to fall from grace look at the fact that the United States is undoubtedly the military superpower of the world and doing so while using only 3.5 percent of the gross domestic product. A question that popped in my mind when thinking about China’s economy growing at a rapid rate is If the United States economy fails ultimately wont the Chinese economy fail?
This in turn means that if the products are defective and not up to standard then they could damage the relationship with the Chinese department store. Another potential problem that may result from accepting the Chinese department store's order is that the research and development centre for the product line is based in the UK. This means that there problems could arise if there is a break down in communication between China and the UK, for example wrong orders could be received in China which would be particularly problematic with the average delivery time from factory being 21 days, 11 more than the UK factories. Therefore this means that these problems could be much more costly than if they happened from the UK factories. (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.
The new development had great impact on production such that it was delayed thus delaying delivery of the product by 30 percent. The management had no option but rather to outsource services for its assembly process from China. This called for comprehensive analysis of the situation leading hiring of consultancy services from Grunwald and Vogel. The intention of hiring Grunwald and Vogel was to help the company address the issue of late delivery that affected production. Based on the case study, risk factors that affected outsourcing process included ethical concern, quality and patent protection.
One of the main reasons for Walmart’s lack of success in other countries is in trying to impose American values, cultures and shopping habits in other countries. Take Germany for example, where consumers felt that additional labor used to pack purchases added to the final cost of the product. Also, working hours for the attendants were way beyond what was allowed by the German government for such categories of labor. Walmart’s foray into India has not met with success either. Being a developing economy, local traders fear that a behemoth like Walmart would put them out of business.
In addition, the philosophical approach used is the Friedman doctrine stating that the only social responsibility of business is to increase profits, so long as the company stays within the rule of law. Therefore, after weighing benefits of huge potential market and the costs of censoring some information related sensitive issues, Google agreed with Chinese regulations to follow the regulation by doing their own censorship 2. Do you think that Google should have entered China and engaged in self-censorship, given the company’s long-standing mantra” Don’t be evil”? Is it better to engage in self-censorship than have the government censor for you? Answer: I think Google already made the right choice to enter the Chinese market and censor its own site, rather than allowing the Chinese government to do it.
Whereas in China there is only a 12% observed growth in the market. Therefore, they are likely to be more successful in India than China even though both markets are growing. It was appealing for Cadbury as they knew that moving into this growing market was likely to increase their sales and therefore they would gain higher profits. Cadbury had obviously researched the market well and realised that well-known chocolate companies had not done so well in China, for example Hershey. Cadbury noticed the gap in the market in India where there was little US competition to stop them and this was one of the reasons as to why they chose to target India over China.
BMW TAPS THE EMERGING CHINESE LUXURY MARKET 1) There is often a natural tendency to assume that in collectivist cultures such as that in China, luxury products would not be popular. a) Explain how luxury products such as the BMW automobile might fulfill needs even within the traditional collectivist value set of China. Luxury products and brands are important to consumers in both individualistic and collectivistic cultures. The changes in traditional values are happening in developing countries such as China, particularly among the wealthy, young, urban set. Thus, companies can and do successfully use self-expressive and individualistic marketing messages even within China.
