In the past decade the topic of outsourcing has become a heavily debated subject on if it is ethically correct to outsourcing jobs to foreign countries. Outsourcing has become more and more an option for many companies and not just an economic fad. The decision to outsource is a difficult one for any company to make because there are many advantages and disadvantages to consider. The decision to outsource affects many people, communities, and industries so if a corporation decides to outsource they must consider how it will affect human dignity, the common good of the economy, and subsidiary. A common definition of outsourcing is the takes part of their business and give it to another company to complete.
One of the most interesting decision the company must make is whether to give its CEO a golden parachute, and what the company decides to offer as a compensation package, can be one of the most important decision the board of a company makes. Compensation packages are one of the biggest reasons a CEO would choose one job over a different job. Most CEOs, and people in general, want to make the most possible money from their job, so they will choose the job that allows for that. This means that for a company to get the best CEO, which in theory would mean the company would be the most profitable, the company needs to have the best compensation package. However, having a compensation package that is too high is also not good because it wastes money and may have negative effects on the company.
As such, it is also an important measure for a CEO to monitor. Present Position: Generating positive return on any kind of input is Zynga’s biggest issue at this point, with generating return on equity being the main issue in particular. Zynga has sustained negative ROE since its initial public offering, despite extremely attractive gross profit margins over the same time period. At first glance, a logical conclusion would be that Zynga is not doing a very good job of keeping its costs down in order to preserve the revenue that equity investors are helping to facilitate. But on closer inspection of the income statement, it becomes very clear that almost half of Zynga’s total revenue each year goes to research and development.
Productive” by Coy and Brady (2005), “New research suggest that boomers will have the ability and the desire to work productively and innovatively” (p. 1). Adults over 50 are becoming educated and are willing to get on the job training to enhance, to keep up with the technology, and new ideas. In addition, Social Security benefits are available to American for early retirement at 62 years of age. However, older adults continue to work even if it was less hours during the week because they are eligible for collecting their entire benefits once they reach minimum or max. As a matter of fact, “Federal reserve’s surveys show that older families have been getting richer” (Coy & Brady, 2005).
Today many different economic problems affect various groups within our nation, and around the world. Some of these problems affect small groups while others have a larger, global impact. It is not easy to place a higher importance to any single problem over another, mainly because all the problems are all indeed very important to those who they involve, regardless of how large or small that number is. Today we see one trend that is affecting companies on a global base, involving many people. When you consider the number of people who support their lives via the income derived from larger scale companies, you start to understand the wide spread cost of decisions made by these companies.
In the United States financial market there is a relatively stable amount of income each year. Even when our country is in a time of crisis, such as now with the impending war with Iraq and the Taliban, it can be counted on that the majority of citizens will enjoy a luxurious and fulfilled lifestyle. Not only will the people have this privilege, but also will the large multinational corporations that generate the income and profit for our market. Many market analysts hold the United States as a model for other capitalist countries, therefore when our market is wavering or unsteady it can cause larger problems for markets that did not have our stability to begin with or that are still growing and gaining strength. The global market and economy is a very delicate and difficult thing to discuss.
Globalization has affected every aspect of the business community in one way or another. Globalization in a simple sense is a business’s movement from one country to another. This is done for a number of reasons; amount of readily available resources, labor market, increased number of customers, and to ultimately become more profitable.

When businesses become an international entity the home country experiences increased unemployment rates, the human resource department now has to manage across borders, prices of goods fluctuate, and forcing wages to decrease for unskilled workers and increase for skilled ones.
When most people think of jobs being sent overseas they think of factory workers or telephone operators, but the recent trend in the outsourcing of jobs has been higher paying jobs like accountants, computer programmers, or financial analysts. These jobs are considered white-collar jobs. In this election candidates will try to appeal to everyone who votes.
