Global Business

- Essay 1 – CAGE Framework In the text Redefining Global Strategy, Pankaj Ghemawat discusses a method of indentifying the various differences that can exist between two countries, and that must be addressed when considering cross-border operations. This method is called the CAGE Framework. CAGE is an acronym used to describe the cultural, administrative, geographic, and economic distances that can exist between multiple countries. While methods of measuring physical and psychic distance have been already been incorporated over the last three decades, “… the CAGE framework takes a much broader view of distance, and has a much more solid empirical base.” (Ghemawat, 41) By exploring these four...   [tags: global strategy, language, ethnicity]

Human Impact On Climate Change And Global Warming

- Human Impact on Climate Change and Global Warming Prior to my research, involving three peer reviewed journal articles from scholarly and reputable sources, I had a pretty clear idea that climate change was in fact real and that humans were at responsible to a high degree to the exponential growth of global temperatures. I have been told for several years that the decisions I make affect others in a large way. This is very true when it comes to climate change, humans use of aerosol sprays, plastic, and waste in general is a vast majority of the ways that humans directly impact global temperatures....   [tags: Global warming, Climate, Precipitation]

Consumerism Is A Global Driving Force For Economic Progression

- Consumerism is a global driving force for economic progression. The economic stability of every nation rests upon its consumer activity and how much is sold and manufactured. Amongst the nations with the highest economic stability, there is a major consumption of natural resources. Natural resources were in abundance prior to the Industrial Revolution. After the Industrial Revolution, the world’s supply of natural resources gradually dwindled, especially in the most recent decades.

Climate Change: Global Emissions of Green House Gases

- There are growing concerns about climate change and the effect of ‘greenhouse gases’ (GHG) on the gradual increase in world temperatures over time, now commonly known as global warming. The ‘greenhouse effect’ means that ‘greenhouse gases’ such as water vapour (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, nitrous oxide, and fluorocarbons insulate the Earth by absorbing heat from the Earth’s surface and reflecting it back into the atmosphere, acting in a similar way to a thermal blanket (Houghton, 2005)....   [tags: Environment, Global Warming, Climate Change]

Global Warming Is An Threat Of The Earth And Future Generations

- Global warming is an increasing threat to the Earth and future generations. Global warming, sometimes called climate change, is the name given to the process of heat getting trapped in the atmosphere and damaging the environment. Greenhouse gases cause heat to gets stuck in the atmosphere by trapping the sun’s rays. When the sun’s rays enter the Earth, they should bounce back into the atmosphere. Instead the gases trap them, causing the temperature to rise. In the past the temperature of the Earth has risen slowly and evenly but recently the temperature has risen faster....   [tags: Global warming, Earth, Climate change, Climate]
