Globalization

Wesley Jackson 12/1/13
Economics Paper #3 Period 4 Globalization is the worldwide movement toward economic, financial, trade, and communications integration. Globalization implies the opening of local and nationalistic perspectives to a broader outlook of a connected and interdependent world with free transfer of capital, goods, and services across national frontiers (businessdictionary) However, it does not include unhindered movement of labor and, as suggested by some economists, may hurt smaller or fragile economies. Globalization has helped companies increase in revenue and sales per year mainly because more people now have access to stores that are now convenient to get to. Globalization is one of the most important issues in the current economical cycle. Even though at the any moment it cannot ensure the achievement of worldwide economical equilibrium, or full environmental protection, its positive effects mainly regarding the trading development and the access to new markets are undeniable. In respect with the disadvantages of this process, the issue is not the globalization itself, but the modality in which actions are taken in pursuit of globalization. The most important positive aspects are the opportunity for rather poor countries to develop in an extremely rapid rhythm due to access to new technologies, products and information, direct investments and loans, high mobility of all production factors. Globalization leads to increased competition. This competition can be related to product and service cost and price, target market, technological adaptation, quick response, quick production by companies etc. When a company produces with less cost and sells cheaper, it is able to increase its market share. Customers have a large amount of choices in the market and it affects their behaviors. They want to acquire goods and services quickly and in a more efficient way than before. They also expect high quality and low prices. All these…

Genetically Modified Foods: a Growing ConcernLiving in America, we sometimes forget what a huge problem malnutrition and starvation are in other parts of the world. It’s estimated that over 852 million people in the world are severely food deprived. Now, imagine a world where no one goes hungry, a farmer’s crop can survive a long drought or an early frost and still produce a large harvest, and harmful insects and weeds cannot survive in the same field as a crop. Imagine a world where malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies are a thing of the past, because the food we eat is so much more nutritious. Some scientists believe that, through new technology, this world could be a reality in our lifetime. I’m talking about genetically modified foods, or GM foods for short. People have been genetically altering foods for hundreds of years, but due to recent technological advancements, the potential of these foods have changed drastically. Many scientists believe that genetically modifying foods could help end world hunger while others say that it could result in human and Genetically Modified Foods: a Growing ConcernLiving in America, we sometimes forget what a huge problem malnutrition and starvation are in other parts of the world.

an inspector calls

ENGLISH ASSESSMENT- An Inspector Calls“An Inspector Calls” is a play written by J.B. Priestly in 1945. Although the play was written in 1945, it was set on a single night in 1912. This play is a “Murder Mystery”. This genre was really popular in them days in fact it had a big success; it reached everyone’s interests. The audience, especially middle class (capitalists) was really attracted by this type of drama. It’s really entertaining and it involves the audience as they too try to figure out what is happening. This is also one of the reasons why J.B. Priestly chose to do this play. Priestly by doing this play wanted to send a message to the capitalists. He wanted to make them realize how unfair, cruel and bad their actions were. He wanted them to learn something; a lesson that will make them change their way of life for the good of others. In 1912 there was a strong inequality in the society: capitalists and socialists. Capitalists were the ones who had the power to control things because of their status, money or position in the society; and the socialists were those ones who had to suffer all the injustices from them. The victim of these injustices, in the play is Eva Smith. Priestly demonstrates to the audience the bad consequences caused by the lack of responsibility from capitalists in 1912. Protagonist of the play is Mr Burling- he represents capitalist ruling class- and the inspector- he represents socialism. The combination of the play is a detective thriller and morality play with the purpose of making the audience learn something at the end of it.The stage directions at the start of the play help to show the audience the superiority and self importance of the Birling’s family. Stage directions and settings are really relevant. At the start of the play, Priestly describes Mr. Birling’s house as a “large suburban house” so that the audience can have a clue of where the play is set. Stage directions shows that there was a celebration and “man in…

The project must be evaluated to ensure that the project team adheres to the objectives of the plan. Analysis of all possible unplanned charges to the project cost, scheduling, and budgeting is vital to prepare for what could go wrong.
From the project planning to implementation, there will be an on-going evaluation to serve as a defense and early detection method, in addition to keep the project running as planned. A Change control sheet must be submitted to the project manager to request changes and is subject to approval.

pd james

Skull Beneath the Skin first published in 1982 reflects the increasing social concerns of post-World War II Cold war as well as the rising feminist movement and transitional class divisions. PD James cleverly reflects the emerging individualist movement through the family relations of Sir George Ralston, Clarrissa Lisle, Roma Lisle, and Simon Lessing. The notion of George Ralston being Clarissa’s third husband, as well as an envious cousin and a financially and emotionally withdrawn stepson, PD James heightens the individualistic notion through the dysfunctional, non-cohesive family unit. This is further strengthened by the rhetoric pondering conversation between Grogan and Buckley. “Did you notice how she and Ralston gave almost identical accounts of his visit to Kingly Street, what he said, what she said? It was so neat it could have been rehearsed.” The feasible regard of Gray and Ralston assisting in the murder of his wife highlights gothic elements of a tyrannical dominant male figure and demonstrates a reserved relationship. The value of life is focally represented through PD James’ character Cordelia Gray. The title, signifies our mortality in conjunction with the characters Clarrissa, continually focuses on dying, Ivo is dying from cancer, Gorringe satisfies his fascination by surround himself with objects of death. Clarrissa notes “It’s my death I’m afraid of” and “I don’t remember when it began but I know the facts of death before I know the facts of life. There never was a time I didn’t see the skull beneath the skin.” All these characters in stark contrast to Gray, accentuates the preciousness of life pertinent to her time, just after the closure of the Second World War. She exclaims “My life counted for less than your comfort, your possessions, your private world. My life!” The use of cumulative listing, elucidates Ambrose’s disregard for life and Gray’s value of life. PD James unlike most cosy crime novels does not end her tale with a resolved…

Enron

1. How did the corporate culture of Enron contribute to its bankruptcy- People describe Enron’s corporate culture as arrogant and prideful. The company employed the best and brightest graduates from top universities, as well as competent, creative and hardworking employees. However, Enron’s compensation plan was more focused on generating profits for shareholders than on enriching employee’s wealth, which resulted in a highly competent and aggressive culture. Enron’s corporate culture encouraged risky behavior, if not breaking the rules. Also, Skilling develop a system in which the employees were ranked every six months. As a result, the employees could not deliver bad news because that could result in the “death” of the messenger, so the problems in the trading operations were hidden instead of being communicated to the management. The business ethic issue is that Lay (CEO) lied about the financial condition of the company and some employees knew about it and just ignored it.2. Did Enron’s bankers, auditors, and attorneys contribute to Enron’s demise? If so, what was their contribution- Yes. Enron’s attorneys like Venson and Elkins, the investment bank Merry Lynch, and the audit company Arthur Andersen contributed to Enron’s fall. First, Enron was Venson and Elkins top client. This law firm helped structure some of Enron’s special purpose partnerships. There was a letter directed to Enron’s CEO that indicated that the law firm supported the legality of some of Enron’s deals. Second, the brokerage and investment bank Merry Lynch bought Nigerian barges for $28 million and Enron financed $21 million. It was said that Enron was going to buy Merry Lynch investment out in six months with a 15% rate of return. However, there was a document that indicated that the transaction might not be appropriate. Finally, Arthur Andersen, as Enron’s auditor, was responsible for the accuracy of its financial statements and bookkeeping. However, this was not the case….

Importance of Education in Society
I feel that education is a necessity; many people use it as a tool for reaching a specific target or personal mark. Nonetheless, the importance of education in society is indispensable and cohering, which is why society and knowledge cannot be ever separated into two distinct entities. In other words, education plays different important roles in our lives.
Receiving a good education helps empower you, thus making you strong enough to look after yourself in any given situation. It keeps you aware of your given surrounding as well as the rules and regulations of the society you’re living in. Education helps you understand yourself better; it helps you realize your potential and qualities as a human being. It helps you to tap into latent talent, so that you may be able to sharpen your skills.
