However, these scares highlight a massive issue with the U.S. and that issue is the U.S.’s dependence on foreign oil. Why does it matter that our oil should come from over seas. In a healthy economy this probably wouldn’t be as relevant, but the U.S.’s economy is not exactly healthy at the moment. There are 4 things that I would like to address: what the problem is, how it affects us, what some solutions are, and what solutions I feel are best....   [tags: Economics ]

Combining My Interests in Energy Dependence and Management - From growing up in Singapore, the “Clean and Green” city, to living in “Oil Country” Texas, and making frequent trips to India I have been exposed to a wide spectrum of energy dependence. On one such visit to an Ashram in India, I was amazed by the effective use of solar panels and internal water recycling plants to support a small, ascetic community, tucked away in a city that lost electricity for a few hours every day. This experience inspired me to examine the potential for large-scale applications of similar clean technologies to mitigate challenges such as high energy prices, volatile foreign oil sources, and food shortages in the developed world....   [tags: Management, energy, ] 1146 words

Resource dependence – internal environment - The main issue here is that all the parties involved have “heterogeneous goals” and there is “competitive interdependence” between all of them (Pfeffer 68-69). There is a relatively limited amount of resources (money) and yet all members need a balloon pump that does a different function. If one group gets the pump it wants it means that the other groups will not get what they want. Therefore, “power is virtually the only way to resolve the decision” as there is no one, “agreed upon goal” (Pfeffer 70 & 77)....   [tags: Health Care]
