Mr. Bailey must decide whether or not to support the merger and determine if the outcome is beneficial to the Opera. Mr. Bailey could show how the Opera’s financial stability, fluid business model and strong cash reserve could be hurt by the Symphony’s financial difficulties and union locked business model. This contrast showing how the Opera could become less economically stable by the merger would lead to the rational conclusion that the merger doesn’t have many positives to offer. Using Vroom Theory in this manner would motivate the Opera not to support the merger because the belief would be that the merger would leave them in a weakened economic state. The illustration of how unattractive this new financial situation would be hard to measure and speculation of losing their financial standing would move the Opera against the merger.

Dr. Bernauer suggested that selling Glen River to a for-profit hospital management company or making it a profit making hospital owned by the doctors would fix the problem (Drucker, 2009).

Amtrak must decide which strategy is most beneficial to the corporation. Discussion Should Amtrak resort to federal funding, it would eliminate opportunity of funding other capital projects that could not be so easily and cost-effectively financed as the locomotives themselves. It would therefore be most advantageous to secure those funds until time of greater need. In the event that Amtrak may decide to use the leveraging-lease method from BNYCF to finance Acela, it should be noted that the greatest benefit would be lower out-of-pocket costs when acquiring and maintaining the new locomotives and trains. The leverage-lease alternative will reflect a stated NPV of -$174 million.
The government should not be setting interest rates because they are too biased. The politicians are too focused on gaining votes in the public elections and therefore would only say what the people want and will win them votes rather than the actual policy which the Country needs. The Bank of England are a skilled workforce who can be trusted in this area because they understand how the Countries economic growth is moving, and although the government may understand the Countries economic growth they may take other things into account such as foreign influences or have unbalanced views due to the voting of the general elections. At the end of the day the Bank of England do not have to win any votes and are therefore much more impartial and will not be swayed to what the public want. However, it can be argued that the government would do the best for the Country whether they wanted to win votes or not because they do not want to undergo the threat of putting the Country in a downwards spiral.
As stated in the source, the current market dominating bus companies “avoid competition with each other in order to protect their own territories” meaning they have to stick to specific routes. With a new company crossing these routes, there is less likely to be too much rivalry as the larger companies won’t want to cause more competition between each other. These new routes would be beneficial to existing customers as they could travel to places easily without having to spend more money on multiple buses, such crossing counties which does currently happen with various companies. Therefore having these new innovative routes would attract existing customers to change company to one which is overall cheaper than the current alternatives, thus generating profit for the new bus company in the market. However, there are still complications that could come with this strategy.
