Canadian Red Wine Business Plan for Los Angeles California Business Plan

… Canadian Red Wine

This is a preliminary plan for the Tropika company to develop a unit that will import Canadian red wine into the Los Angeles market and establish that product as a viable item for the low to medium priced wine consumer. Canadian wine has a long history, but it is not well-known in the U.S. market. In contrast, American wines, especially from California, are very well-known in the Canadian market and have a good share of the Canadian wine market. California wineries have sought to keep out other wines from the market for some time, but that has less power in a time of free trade and globalization. The consumer does not know Canadian wine and must be educated to its value. The…. [read more]

Industrial legalism" represents the highest point for Canadian organized labor during postwar Keynesianism, but it's not clear that this model can survive globalization and neoliberalism. Industrial legalism means "the compulsory recognition of unions and enforceability of negotiated contracts." (Howlett). Deindustrialization is defined in the work of Cairncross (1982) and Lever (1981) as follows:

Deindustrialization means an outright decline in the output of manufactured goods or in employment in the manufacturing sector;

Deindustrialization can mean a change from manufacturing to…. [read more]


Globalization and Western Imperialism Term Paper

… (Barlow and Clake, 66)

It was in the early 1900's that a very huge distinct change was seen in the internal compromise of the global economic and political management of the various global institutions and also the most string players. This particular model was called 'neo-liberalism' or also the 'Washington Consensus', called so by the economist John Williamson in 1989 in order to explain a ten policy recommendation that was formed keeping in mind the structural changes that would have to be made all over the world. But at the 'end of history' it was the dominance of the neo-liberal modification of globalization that did not last for long. A lot of happenings in the 1990's saw to it that both the ideologies and the…. [read more]


Canadian Politics Labour Term Paper

… Canadian Politics/Labour

The postwar period represented an important challenge for the theorists as well the practitioners in the economic field. There have been wide debates on the actual structure that should be formed in order to cater for the needs of the economies throughout the world. Certain theories emerged that tried to take into account the necessities of each country as well as the necessities of a growing world economy. However, not all states were successful enough to consider all the aspects of their national economies. In this sense, some failed, while others gained increasing control over their own industrial potential and the regional one as well.

The postwar development of Canada tried to take a different approach. This is not necessarily due to the…. [read more]


Globalization and the Impact Onus Manufacturing Term Paper

… GLOBALIZATION and the IMPACT on U.S. MANUFACTURING

Ten years ago, the debate surrounding manufacturing leaving the United States had as its focus the jobs that were being pulled southward into Mexico. Today, this issue is more urgent than previously however, the source of worry is not only focused on south of the border in Mexico. Manufacturing is increasingly relocating to Brazil, China, India, Bulgaria and Malaysia. It has been estimated by the website Economy.com, an economic consulting firm in West Chester, Pennsylvania that 1.3 million manufacturing jobs have been moved abroad since the start of 1992 and that the bulk of this has occurred in the past three years with the majority of jobs moving to Mexico and East Asia. The Trade Resource Center relates…. [read more]

Globalization and Canadian Free Trade Policy

The debate over globalization is one which has occupied market theorists, politicians and the working class alike for generations. However, in the post-Cold War era, the recalibration of world markets and political relationships has instigated the breakdown of barriers to the thorough implementation of free trade. Under the philosophical banner of globalization and taking the form of economic alliances crossing over international borders, thus removing the obstructions of international duties and other domestic market protections, free trade has been a primary determinant in the relationship which currently binds and frustrates Canadian-United States relations. As examined in the C.D. Howe Institute's March 2006 article "Steer or Drift? Taking Charge of Canada-U.S. Regulatory Convergence" by Michael Hart, the breakdown…. [read more]


Impact of Globalization on Developing Countries Thesis

… ¶ … Globalization on Developing Countries

Globalization is an increasingly widespread phenomenon in the world today. Indeed, an increasing amount of countries are entering the global arena in order to take advantage of all that is offered. Both developing and developed nations are now working together to create the concept of the "Global Village," in which every country, business and individual has the opportunity to create a livelihood on a global scale.

This is not to say however that globalization does not have its challenges. One of the major problems the world currently faces is the increasing gap between the rich and the poor, as well as obesity and hunger. The rich and powerful countries appear to exploit as much as they can of the…. [read more]


Police Management: Throughout History Research Paper

… The challenge associated with the difficulty in investigating these crimes is that they can be perpetrated in a jurisdiction that is outside where the crime occurs. In addition to this, there are challenges associated with investigating these offenses since criminal organizations are becoming more sophisticated and increasingly knowledgeable in their use of new technologies.

Resources for Fighting Crime Effectively:

The other challenge for law enforcement managers because of globalization is that these managers are finding it difficult to provide police officers with the necessary resources for fighting crime effectively (Viau, n.d.). This is major challenges particularly with regards to the increase in organized crime that continues to threaten the democratic institutions in the country and the economy. The fight against organized crime is a huge…. [read more]

Airports Globalization Has Impacted the Airport Industry Term Paper

… Airports

Globalization has impacted the airport industry in two key ways. The first is that airports are now in global competition with one another, and this has spurred significant expansion of the industry. Airports compete on a regional basis -- the different airports along the Persian Gulf compete with each other for Europe-Asia transit passengers for example. As a result, demand for airport capacity has increased, setting off a round of expansion. This has put pressure on local land use and on governments to help their airports meet this demand (Cidell, 2004).

Ownership of airports has also become globalized as the result of deregulation. Private airport operators have emerged in a number of countries. Many of these operators have now diversified their holdings to include…. [read more]


International Trade of Canadian Lumber Research Paper

… International Trade of Canadian Lumber

The contemporaneous society is characterized by a series of elements, such as the opening of boundaries to international trade or the massive advent of technology, which has come to impact virtually all life activities. Aside from these however, a more concerning characteristic which is common in the modern day society is given by the threat of environmental instability.

Global warming is becoming more and more present and the risks it poses for humanity call for an integrated action. Problems which contribute to environmental instability include actions such as higher levels of consumption, increased dump of industrial waste in waters and other fields or high levels of deforestations. The impacts are disastrous and include sky rocking levels of pollution, the death…. [read more]


Sustainable Development - A Global Term Paper

… "

The heart of good governance is popular participation, transparency, and public accountability (Dhanapala, 2001). Strong laws to protect the environment, for instance, are forged as a result of a sustained political process, a process that involves solid efforts throughout civil society. Enlightened leaders in government require this popular participation to adopt laws and policies to meet genuine human needs, just as the groups in society that are advocating such reforms must also depend upon official authorities to enforce such reforms.

According to Dhanapala (2001): "In this light, NGOs can be a catalyst of what is truly good about globalization. Though they are elected by no one and lack legal authority themselves to govern, they play a crucial role in helping the state to identify…. [read more]

Kumanan Wilson, who is an expert in the Canadian Public Health Policy, wrote in an issue of Canadian Medical Association Journal, in 2007 that "The reformed blood system has regained public confidence and has even received high marks from the group representing the primary victims of the tainted blood tragedy (Abecassi et al., 2007)."

This work will discuss the origins of the post-war collective bargaining system, the steel strike of 1946, the labor movement in Quebec, ethnically split labor markets, immigrant working women, civil service organizing, the postal strike of 1965, and the generational conflict in the labor movement of the 1960s.

Women and the Union: Struggle Essay

… Indeed, their environment and lack of choice appear to have removed all hope.

Separate organizing, then, has the advantage of targeting specific situations, such as those suffered by the women immigrating to the United States. It offers a targeted and focused movement of women with a common interest at heart. Women like those in the Indian factories, for example, can unionize and form committees to force those who hold power over them to at least grant them rights to basic human dignity while they are working.

On the other hand, the collective force of global unions should not be underestimated. The inherent advantage of this is the power of numbers. Women who are unable to motivate or unionize themselves, for example, can be assisted by…. [read more]

Hypnosis Compared to Eastern Meditation Chi Kung and Nei Thesis

… ¶ … globalization and innovations in telecommunications are bringing healthcare practitioners together from all over the world in ways that have never before been possible. As these collaborative efforts and mature communities of practice continue to emerge, it is important to help Western practitioners understand the fundamental tenets of Eastern medicine and representative practices, just as it is important to help practitioners in China and elsewhere in the East understand the allopathic approaches that are most widely practiced in the West. To this end, this study compared the clinical use of hypnosis with the use of Eastern Meditation, Chi Kung, and Nei Kung.

ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY

The objective of this research is to answer the question of: "What kind of impact does globalization have on Canadian policies concerning air pollution, specifically concerning motor vehicle air pollution?

THE ARGUMENT PRESENTED IN THIS WORK

The argument presented in this work is that Canada's tendency to follow the policy of the United States is likely to result in Canada having the same critical problem of vehicle emissions that the United States has witnessed due to U.S. policy and further that the AirCare emissions program mandated in Canada have fallen short of the objective.

Origins, History of the IMF Term Paper

… SRF: Supplemental Reserve Facility loans are to be repaid within a year and a half, and there is a substantial surcharge of 3-5 percentage points.

CCL: This is under the same repayment criteria as SRF, but the surcharge is less (1.5 to 3.5 percentage points).

CFF: This type of loan was designed to help a country experiencing a very sudden "shortfall" in export earnings (caused by world commodity fluctuations), and the financial terms match those of the SBA (except CCF loans have no surcharge).

In the event of a nation suffering a natural disaster like an earthquake, flood, typhoon, or other calamities, or for a country just emerging from war, the IMF provides "Emergency Assistance" loans. They are subject to the basic rate of charge,…. [read more]


Global Economy Relate to Food Essay

… The objective is to obtain nationwide food security for all Canadians. This is particularly important in light of the findings of Tarasuk and Eagin (2009) that food banks cannot be relied upon as a last resort against food insecurity in their current form. The defenses against food insecurity therefore need to be more robust, more formalized, and should in all likelihood stem from specific government option.

Wealth distribution is the key to increasing food security. In poor areas of our cities, wealth distribution is an obstacle to food supply availability and an obstacle to food procurement. The issue of wealth distribution within a society is complex, with a multitude of different underlying issues. New immigrants in particular are vulnerable to wealth distribution problems, but other….

Business Law What Is the Relationship Research Paper

… Business Law

What is the relationship between ethics and the law in business?

An association is present between law and ethics. In a number of cases, law and ethics overlap and what is professed as unethical is in addition illegal. In further circumstances, they do not overlap. In a number of instances, what is thought to be unethical is still legal, and in others, what is against the law is thought to be ethical. An action might be thought of as ethical to one individual or group but might not be looked at as ethical by someone else. Additionally obscuring this dichotomy of action, laws may have been passed, efficiently positioning the government's location, and seemingly the mainstream view, on the action. As a consequence,….

Participatory Budgeting Cma Research Proposal

… S. case offers comparative realism to the conceptual framework of public choice, where legitimacy stems ostensibly from policy, and code is a merely bedraggled stepchild to the actual decision making processes of co-optation and bi-lateral business partnerships.

In the U.S., it should be noted, where provision of basic services is considered elsewhere, and defendants typically sustain dismissal with anticipatory repudiation at the pre-trial stage. Irrespective of distinctions between the two nations, in the final instance it can be effectively argued, it is Law, rather than participatory decision making or civil service oversight that constitute the rules of the game. It is in the details of municipal and regional code that we source true meaning beyond what Lightbody calls the "sudden dramatic bursts of policy theatre…. [read more]


Teacher Motivation Research Proposal

… Teaching is one of the professions that many and indeed probably even most people enter with a large measure of idealism. They seek out education as a profession not for the salary or the benefits (despite the belief of many non-teachers that teachers are primarily motivated by the long vacations) but because they feel that teaching is their vocation, their calling. And yet despite this initial strong motivation to teach, many teachers leave the profession after a short time, often after only a year in the classroom. For example, about twenty percent of new Vancouver teachers leave the profession after their first year (Richmond, 2005), which is about middling, with some regions losing up to fifty percent of their novice teachers after their first year….

Countries -- Brazil, Russia, India Essay

… Among the major challenges at the political level in Mexico, it is important to note the high levels of corruption among the Mexican politicians (Morris), as well as the still transitioning political system, which had yet to fully evolve into democracy. At this level, challenges are faced at the level of the relationship between the state and the people, including the state and the private investors (Selee and Peschard, 2010).

5. Technology in Mexico

As it has been mentioned throughout the previous section, the Chinese economy and business sector are characterized by a wide array of elements which both promote as well as stifle innovation and research and development. Some of the shortages, such as the protection of property rights, are being addressed and would be gradually transformed into items promoting innovation rather than discouraging it. Nonetheless, it has to be recognized that the country is faced with numerous challenges to innovation and that most of these challenges are pegged to the emergent nature of the country, its economy and its industry sectors.

In spite of the shortages identified, there are some specific industries in the Asian country which do stand increased chances of…. [read more]


Hostile Take Over the Modern Business Nightmare Term Paper

… Hostile Takeover -- the modern business nightmare

Globalization means many fundamental changes to business practices around the world. Culture plays a significant role in defining standard business practices in a particular area of the world. As the world becomes more integrated, many businesses find themselves exposed to practices that are foreign to their culture.

This can be either friendly or hostile depending on the circumstances of the bidding process. This research will explore the legal, business, and political aspects of the hostile take-over.
