(xi) Brand X cannot only invested small amounts of capital in China and without considering a business strategy based on factors unique to the under-developed Chinese system of commerce because China’s undeveloped infrastructure, government regulations, and regional protectionism fragment distribution channels throughout China. ( https://wweb.uta.edu/insyopma/prater/IJPDLM%20logistics%20in%20China.pdf) For example, the legal system in China is improving and it cannot protect the foreign investors at this moment. Also, because of the unperfected infrastructure, foreign investors are difficult to find the distribution in China. The product production is also affected since the system in China is not effective enough. The unclear guidelines are the main problem that is faced by the foreign investors since they do not know how to follow the guidelines.
Instead of spending more money on R and D, invest at home and where the business model works. With the Chinese market the way it is, Wal-Mart cannot mitigate threats easy, or exploit opportunities because they are having trouble even putting their stores where they want. Great business model, sure, but some places just don’t work. Wal-Mart leaving doesn’t mean failure. Wal-Mart leaving just means re-allocation of success driven goals.

Political corruption is ripe and there is very little that can be done to the top officials if they are corrupt.
Americans “thought [the] Chinese had some kind of superpower since they worked for such low wages and lived in small crowded areas” (“The Chinese Experience in 19th Century America”). The Chinese just wanted to have a better life since that was the reason they came to America and they were just working hard to achieve their American Dream of living a better life than the one in their country. They did not mind working hard for what they wanted and they did, but they were just thought of as different and as exorcists for doing this. There were Yellow Peril novels written about how the Chinese wanted to take over the American government so they could put in place their own culture. On the other hand there were groups of people who did feel the Chinese were welcomed.
In order to maximize profits, these corporations have to find ways to cut corners and reduce input costs. All of this is done to provide the cheaper prices that American consumers enjoy. Asian subcontractors do not provide their workers with the benefits and wages that are found in the U.S. In China, wages are much lower, labor movements are repressed, and labor laws are not enforced effectively (“Working Conditions”). Many Chinese workers do not even know about trade unions or collective bargaining, which is a tool that laborers have been able to take advantage of in America.
Background/ Reasoning for the riot: British Canadians felt that it was best to hire Chinese labourers to work on the continental railways due to working conditions, however, other British Canadians felt that it had been the low wages that Chinese individuals charged that created them enticing alternatives to higher paid non-Asians. Employment on the railways crammed a range of jobs in a rural and concrete environment. In 1885, the Canadian government, after being pressured from Canadian provinces, passed l... ... middle of paper ... ...sequence of limitations for Asians, Asian settlers were constrained into work that was frequently dangerous and were paid cheaply. Canada's refusal to stretch out a welcome to these settlers reflected Canada's racist mentality of the period, and the way the Canadian government reacted to the racism against the Asian immigrants was quite explanatory to this mentality they had. Instead of doing something about the racism, the government take action by limiting the maximum number of Asians allowed to immigrate to Canada in a period of a year.

Wal-Mart’s identity is misperceived because of reasons that many people are unaware of. This misperception successfully masks the retailer’s real identity. These reasons include, misleading advertisement, false claims, biased employment, transitioning from the blue-collar customer target by incorporating an upscale inventory, having a majority of Chinese made inventory, and manipulating customers. The world's largest retailer is experiencing its worst-ever sales period. Many people today proclaim that Wal-Mart has just lost sight on the main goal, making money.
This tragic event also happened when the conflict between China and Philippines arouse. Some Chinese nationals betray our OFW’s by refusing to give their salaries and not allowing them to take enough rest during their work. Still, some Chinese nationals also deny and renounce to accept Filipinos as an overseas worker in their country. For them, Filipinos are weak, faint, unsubstantial and frail.

The cause of this is because of their differing cultures. In order for their business to work efficiently both Chinese and American workers must find the right balance between the two cultures.

Another differences in business ethics between China and the U.S. include: relationships, touch, subtleness and many more differences.
