Foreign Direct Investment In Global Cities And Co-Ethnic Clusters: Characteristics, Performance, And Survival, 2018 The University of Western Ontario
Foreign Direct Investment In Global Cities And Co-Ethnic Clusters: Characteristics, Performance, And Survival, Dwarka Chakravarty
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
This dissertation examines the characteristics, profitability, and survival of multinational enterprise (MNE) foreign direct investment (FDI) in North American “global” cities (GCs), such as Los Angeles, New York, and Toronto. Across GCs and their metropolitan areas (Metros), MNEs often co-locate with their home country and co-industry peers in “co-ethnic” and “co-ethnic, co-industry” (CECI) clusters. Despite their substantial influence on the world economy GCs are relatively underexplored as location units of analysis in International Business (IB) research. Accordingly, I address three research questions. First, how do subsidiary and MNE characteristics differ between GCs, Metros, and other locations? Second, how does subsidiary ...

United States Withdrawal From Nafta: Potential Effects On The Domestic Agriculture Sector And In-Market Consumers, 2018 Honors College, Page University
United States Withdrawal From Nafta: Potential Effects On The Domestic Agriculture Sector And In-Market Consumers, Karen Ospina
Honors College Theses
A United States withdrawal from the North American Free Trade Agreement – a tenant of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign – could significantly reduce job creation and consumer spending in a number of sectors within the U.S. economy. While it remains to be seen whether this proposed exit will occur, economists predict the main industries that will be affected are the automotive, farming, and petrochemical industries. The United States’ current political climate could potentially, negatively impact the farming industry – thus causing the unemployment rate to possibly skyrocket as well as adversely affecting consumer spending. This paper examines the potential adverse ...

Profit And Social Value: An Analysis Of Strategies And Sustainability At The Base Of The Pyramid, 2018 Florida Gulf Coast University
Profit And Social Value: An Analysis Of Strategies And Sustainability At The Base Of The Pyramid, Eric Dent, Ronda Ansted, Catherine Aasen
Journal of International & Interdisciplinary Business Research
The last decade has seen a growing interest in market-based approaches to poverty reduction. Since the publication of Prahalad’s Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid in 2004, businesses, entrepreneurs, and researchers have investigated ways to tap into this fortune. Many researchers have suggested that companies could both do well financially and contribute to social good by serving the bottom two-thirds of the global economic pyramid and effectively raising members of this rapidly growing base of this pyramid (BOP) out of poverty (Agnihotri, 2013; Hammond et al., 2007; London, 2007; Prahalad & Hart, 1999). Although there have been many debates concerning the efficacy of BOP ventures in alleviating poverty (Arora & Romijn, 2012; Karnani, 2007; Warnholz, 2007), companies, entrepreneurs, and practitioners ...

Currents Of Consumption: How National Narratives Of Japanese Cuisine Collide With Localized Forms Of Sushi In Northern California, 2018 University of San Francisco
Currents Of Consumption: How National Narratives Of Japanese Cuisine Collide With Localized Forms Of Sushi In Northern California, John Ostermiller
Master's Projects and Capstones
This paper examines how national narratives of Japanese cuisine collide with the expectations, preferences, and perceptions of American consumers (particularly Northern California). The global economy has benefited the circulation of positive images of Japan managed by the Japanese government, but the commercialization of Japanese cuisine is also at odds with government efforts. In Japan, sushi is often synonymous with nigirizushi: sliced seafood and a daub of wasabi atop vinegared rice. As part of Japan’s washoku tradition, this singular image of sushi (allegedly) reflects the deepest essence of Japanese cultural sensibilities tied to simplicity, perfection, and nature. But in America ...

In order to do so, a proxy index was created by investigating a portion of questions from respondents of the World Values Survey. Comparing this to Hofstede's Insights on National Culture allowed for a unique perspective as to whether the country individualism ratings could then be used to assert a relationship between these metrics.

An Analysis Of Chinese Trade And Fta Using Gravity Model, Minyu Liu
Applied Economics Theses
This paper assesses the impacts of the Free Trade Agreement on the volume of both the import and export of China and FTA countries or districts. We used a gravity model with dummy variables for China and each Chinese FTA partner country to account for the specificities of particular trade relations. By using the relevant theories and methods for the trade gravity model, we estimate a pooled cross-section model with data for 33 countries or districts over 15 years. The result indicates that the GDP, per capita GDP, distance, FTA, and language are the main factors that influence the volume ...

Gender Diversity Around The World: The Role Of Country Legal Regulations And Culture, Madison E. Newton
Economics Undergraduate Honors Theses
The goal of this project is to analyze the factors that contribute to the gender discrepancy in labor force participation rates around the world. This paper will explore potential drivers of the gender disparity phenomenon through the analyzation of country-specific elements to detect related impacts that may be imposed on a country’s composition of labor force as it relates to gender. More specifically, I interpret the degree to which specific factors can directly influence the proportion of female presence in labor forces around the world. My empirical results suggest that the societal factors, legal regulations, culture, total fertility rate ...

Iran Sanctions: A Compliance Perspective The Promise And Peril Of Entering The Islamic Republic, 2018 M.S.L. Corporate Compliance Candidate, Fordham University School of Law, 2018
Iran Sanctions: A Compliance Perspective The Promise And Peril Of Entering The Islamic Republic, Talib Amir
Fordham Journal of Corporate & Financial Law
U.S. sanctions against Iran have limited trade between foreign and Iranian companies for decades. The 2015 nuclear agreement eased sanctions by widening the scope of permitted business dealings, but brought attendant risks to foreign companies considering venturing into Iran. This Essay proposes that companies can employ a risk-reward model to assess whether the opportunity posed by a proposed venture justifies the risks of violating sanctions laws. The Essay suggests that companies can create a model by categorizing and quantifying the likely benefits of a business deal and compare the opportunity with risks, after implementing processes to limit specific risks ...
