Still, since the company have to face abroad competition, these two visions can be compatible. A limit to gains of trade on monopolistically competitive market we can point out is when a firm, instead of facing its new competitors fairly, practice dumping practices, which are prohibited by the WTO.

More importantly, resources used to help organisations acquire a favourable state as touching global strategy can easily become weakness or liability that propels companies in the unexpected direction (Ghemawat, 2013, p. 80). This paper contrasts the competitiveness view to the resource-based approach and critically assesses the opinion that resources can actually turn into liabilities to pull organisations down, providing examples for both occasions. While the resource-based view emphasises on the assumption that a firm can only acquire a competitive edge by maximising the resources at its disposal (Ghemawat, 2013, p. 81), scholars backing the competitive view believe that firms have to follow certain principles to achieve the same goal. Scholars from the competitive school of thought emphasise on the need to foster efficiency in terms of economies of scale geared towards access to a wider market and clientele base (Peng, 2013, p. 80). Despite arguments that both schools of thought provide similar results, practical evidence from existing organisations
America's Antitrust Legislation and the New Global Economy John Kenneth Galbraith in The New Industrial State argued that U.S. anti- trust legislation is a result of outdated arguments about the need to preserve “free enterprise” and the competitive market. Galbraith stated, that large corporations in modern economies may need to limit competition in order to achieve efficiency and compete with foreign imports in the new global economy. I agree with this statement. When a corporation becomes big and starts to grow and expand they will soon gain control of their market. Once a company has gained control of their market, within their nation, they can focus their attention on competing in the global market for their product.
Global brands become symbols of cultural ideals; therefore, transnational companies have to offer a high-value product that deliver the cultural myths consumers are looking for. The Global Brands Study found consumers associate global brands with three characteristics (quality signal, global myth, and social responsibility), which are used to evaluate them when making purchase decisions. Global consumers are segmented into four categories: global citizens, global dreamers, anti-globals, and global agnostics. More than two decades ago, Harvard Business School professor Theodore Levitt provocatively declared in a 1983 HBR article, "The Globalization of Markets," that a global market for uniform products and services had emerged. He argued that corporations should exploit the "economics of simplicity" and grow by selling standardized products all over the worl...
Analyzing and serving the consumer International marketing is an important factor in serving organizations to develop into becoming globally competitive. Companies who operate within domestic markets purely are having difficulties competing with a global organization. Therefore, what does it take to move an organization globally? According to Cateora, Gilly, and Graham (2013), “international marketing is the performance of business activities designed to plan, price, promote, and direct flow of the companies goods and services to consumers of users in more than one nation for profit” (p. 10). International marketing strategies and its effectiveness assists in the expansion of an organization.
Thomas Friedman discussed in his, “The World is Flat” presentation, that the world is entering a new era of technological change. He claimed that this change is completely altering how firms should analyze entering into foreign markets. However, Pankaj Ghemawat makes a solid counterargument in his essay, “Distance Still Matters”. This essay describes the intricacies of global expansion and point out the fact that while the world is becoming more connected as technology progresses, it is not shrinking in terms of the differences between locations around the world. Ghemawat explains in his essay the way in which companies’ managements go about analyzing potential global markets.
HR UCTION The topic under review is strategic alliances. This particular form of non-equity alliance between firms in the same industry (competitors) is becoming an increasingly popular way of conducting business in the global environment. Many different reasons of why such alliances are occurring have been recognized. These include: the increasing globalization of the world's economy resulting in intensified global competition, the proliferation and disbursement of technology, and the shortening of product life-cycles. This critique will use Kenichi Ohmae's viewpoint on strategic alliances as a benchmark for comparison.
This book has made me question the long term sustainability of the already evolving economic globalization process. Rodrik explains that the process of globalization must be managed so that the entire world can benefit. The first point that Rodrik makes is that markets are limited by the scope of governance or regulation. He argues that markets and governments are most effective when they are operating in accordance with one another. This theory seems to stem from a theory earlier developed by the famous economist Adam Smith, which was that “the division of labor is limited by the extent of the market.” Rodrik expands on this theory by saying that not only is labor limited by the market, but that markets are limited by government.
Linear-active groups involve those groups that have linear agendas, are always preplanning, links processes, and aim to achieve clearly stated goals with utmost prejudice (Lewis, 2012). On the other hand, multi-active groups characteristically have the pleasure of multi-tasking. Moreover, multi-active groups in an organizational culture improve the relationship within and among multi-national corporations. Lewis (2012) suggests that multinational corporations should purpose to fill the ranks since the deviations and differences are a reflection of the culturally diverse global market. The global market serves diverse customers of different nationalities and incorporates the ideas from a diverse human resource pool in the formulation of policies and directives to determine the operations of a multinational organization; this is the most promising way for MNCs such as Microsoft.
What is the impact of such significant downsizing to the Information Technology field in general? For one thing, globalization has cast an entirely new light upon the way that Information Technology companies operate amidst a growing atmosphere of global competition. Every opportunity to cut costs and increase revenue brings a company that much closer to overpowering its industry rival. "There are good reasons…to be skeptical about whether easing the way money flits around the world has brought more good than harm" (Moberg 18). While the globalization of the Information Technology industry greatly depends upon a firm's competitive position in a particular country being significantly impacted by its position in other countries, it can be readily understood that global industry is not just a collection of domestic industries but rather a group of linked industries in which rivals compete against one another upon a worldwide basis.
