Week 2 Case Study: Economic and Political Systems

Professor Instructions

Two websites of interest here are the FREEDOM INDEX ( https://www.heritage.org/index/ranking  (Links to an external site.) ) and the HUMAN DEVELOPMENT INDEX ( http://hdr.undp.org/en/countries  (Links to an external site.) )

Given that your MNC has only one home country (the country in which your MNC is headquartered), look at the websites and find your home country and inform us about it. Second, pick one host country (a country that your MNC does business in but is not the home headquarters of your MNC) and examine this as well with the websites above.

What are the similarities, what are the differences between your home and host country? What other websites do you think are good to use for this discussion topic?

 

Assignments

 

Identify a country of your choice using the Freedom Index ( https://www.heritage.org/index/ranking)( https://www.heritage.org/index/ranking) (from this link choose Japan and USA) and compare as well.

Note two challenges and two opportunities to starting or moving a business to your selected country. In addition to the Freedom Index findings, find one more additional article on that country. 

Finally, note if you would or would not consider moving a business there. Please indicate why and what factors led you to your final recommendation.

Your analysis will be done in written form, using a Word document. The case should be 3 pages, double spaced, 12 pt font (maximum 3 pages).   (1 title, 2 body, 1 references) conclusions
