2- the process is a gradual acquisition, integration and use of knowledge about foreign markets and operations; 3- the process is also one of organizational learning; 4- the model is experience/knowledge-based - the more experience the firm gains in time, the more it is prepared to commit itself to this market and to launch new activities; 5- from this higher commitment the firm will gain experience/market knowledge; 6- internationalization is a slow process, beginning with local representatives in culturally close markets; 7- firms would enter new markets with successfully greater psychic distance; 8- the concept of psychic distance -factors preventing or disturbing the flow of information between firm and market, including factors such as differences in - languages- cultures- political systems- educational levels- levels of industrial development- tastes among consumers- values, behaviors, attitudes.

This theory though it seems very small is a very important part of the business world. The expected return on a long futures position depends on the Beta of that individual futures contract. If the Beta is greater than 0, the futures price should rise over time. If the Beta is equal to 0, the futures price should remain the same over time. If the Beta is less than 0, the futures price should decline
THE THEORY OF FREIGHT RATES An amazing assortmentTHE THEORY OF FREIGHT RATES An amazing assortment of goods are moved over the worlds ocean trade routes. Of necessity, the carriers charge for the service they render. These charges vary almost as widely as do the cargoes, for they mirror both the shipowner\'s costs and the special conditions prevailing on the trade routes traversed by the ships. Ocean freight rates may be described as the prices charged for the services of water carriers. Each ship operator develops it\'s own rates, usually wit
One of the greatest international economic debatesOne of the greatest international economic debates of all time has been the issue of free trade versus protectionism. Proponents of free trade believe in opening the global market, with as few restrictions on trade as possible. Proponents of protectionism believe in concentrating on the welfare of the domestic economy by limiting the open-market policy of the United States. However, what effects does this policy have for the international market and the other respective countries in this market?
Introduction Hyper inflation has plagued most of tIntroduction Hyper inflation has plagued most of the world’s developing countries over the past decades. Countries in the industrialised world, too, have at times duelled with dangerously high inflation rates in the post WWII era.

More recently, however, a few countries have pursued policies that strive to er

The More We Import From Developing Countries, TheThe More We Import From Developing Countries, The More They Will Import From Us Low import levels from less developed countries raise economic, political and moral questions. Fraser Hosford and Shane Roberts examine the theory and evidence to propose an economic argument in favour of importing more from less developed countries. This paper will use both qualitative and quantitative analysis to evaluate the proposition that the more we import from developing countries, the more they will import f
In 1959, a rebel, Fidel Castro, overthrew the reigIn 1959, a rebel, Fidel Castro, overthrew the reign of Fulgencia Batista in Cuba; a small island 90 miles off the Florida coast. There have been many coups and changes of government in the world since then. Few if any have had the effect on Americans and American foreign policy as this one. In 1952, Sergeant Fulgencia Batista staged a successful bloodless coup in Cuba. Batista never really had any cooperation and rarely garnered much support. His reign was marked by continual dissension. After w

In the 1990s, several countries experienced mass exodus, civil war, race war, religious war, and genocide. Yugoslavia’s Serbian population attempted to cleanse itself of Muslims and Croats, in Rwanda the Hutu population exterminated almost the entire Tutsi population, while in East Timor and several other countries refugees fled from the tyran

Have we lost the War on Drugs?Have we lost the War on Drugs? The War on Drugs officially started in 1972 with President Nixon declaring that drug law enforcement was not strict enough. To enforce the laws of the original Harrison Act, a new and intensified plan was to be enacted. The war reached its peak during the Reagan and Bush administrations, in which $67 billion was spent in enforcement of drug laws. The plan had worked relatively well until near the end of the Bush administration and drug use overall was down. But the
As our technology continues to advance, new breaktAs our technology continues to advance, new breakthroughs in medicine are discovered. With these new developments serious ethical and moral questions arise. Advancements in genetic engineering, reproductive technologies, cloning, organ transplanting, and human experimentation are all causes of concern. The Human Genome Project, an incredible scientific undertaking determined to produce a map of the human DNA code, will tell us how each gene or group of genes function (Lemonick and Thompson 44).
