Kfc In China - 1,683 words
In 1986, Tony Wang was Vice President of the Southeast Asia division of KFC. He had an opportunity of bringing the world's largest chicken restaurant company into the world's largest populated country. Wang was an experienced entrepreneur and had been working for KFC for seven years. No other fast food companies were currently operating in the People's Republic, so Wang did not have anything to go by and nothing to help him evaluate the attractiveness of the Chinese market. The main downsides of operating in China were huge demand on managerial resources and the low prospects of significant hard currency repatriation. The first decision that Wang was faced with was where to open the location ...

Big Oil And Bus Ethics - 1,760 words
It can be argued (convincingly) that human's usage of fossil fuels is responsible for a large part of the world's pollution problems. The area that I will discuss is the interaction that the big oil companies have had with the environment surrounding their businesses in Alaska. I will not tackle the issue of whether it is right or wrong to extract or use fossil fuels. Instead, I will ignore the larger issue and concentrate on specific issues concerning the Arctic Slope activities of oil companies in Alaska. Because the North Slope oil fields are on American soil, the regulation of the industrial activities is far more stringent than other areas in the world. If we compared the North Slope oi ...

Why Did Jews Play Such A Disproportionate Part In The Cultural Life Of Fin De Siecle Vienna ? - 2,298 words
ter> "Mythenbildung ist wie kristallisation in der gesattigten salzlosung: es wird dann im entscheidenden augenblick alles mythisch" Arthur Schnitzler (Buch der Freunde) (1) Viennese Jews proportionally did have more representatives in the cultural sphere. This can be because they had the means, ways and opportunity to exploit their situation to pursue the arts. Steven Beller states quite unequivocally "Whether it be Freud, Schoenberg, Schnitzler or Wittgenstein, the number of individuals at the top level of Viennese culture - or rather that type of culture for which Vienna is today so famous - who are of at least partly Jewish descent is so large that it cannot be ignored." (2) And indeed ...

Analyzing Government Tax Cuts For General Motors - 1,754 words
Flint, Michigan, the birthplace of General Motors and the United Auto Workers Union (UAW), is facing the devastating affects of the closing of 11 General Motors plants which results in approximately 30,000+ jobs lost.

General Motors chairman, Roger Smith, claims that this [closing of the plants] is something it has to do to stay competitive in the auto industry. The plan is for General Motors to close the 11 plants in Flint and to relocate to Mexico where they will build new foreign factories and can pay the workers a lower wage. Michael M ...
