The threats of new entrants are low since they need to invest huge money to compete with Disney. For instance, the investment of Disney theme park is very high and the time of construction is quite long. Both of the two factors make it difficult for new entrants to enter this market. Another barrier is the power of the brand name. Disney has already owned loyal customers and they will prefer to visit Disneyland and watch Disney movies first instead of other places or new
“The bubble began in overinvestment in IT and spread to much of the stock market” (qt in Galbraith and Hale 6-7). The exponential growth and interest in online companies created a demand for technically oriented workers that could not be met by the American workforce. H-1B visas were instrumental in importing the talent needed to build the current digital world. The American workforce has doggedly trained and studied to become skilled in high-demand technical fields. However, American companies continue to employ H-1B visa workers because of the reduced labor costs.

As more parents grew to value youth sports positive influence on their children, growth skyrocketed. However, according to Woods, youth sport programs benefited most from the passage of Title IX in 1972 (2016). He attributed this rise to the already staggering growth rate and the addition to girls playing fewer “ladylike” sports, such as figure skating, swimming, or gymnastics, and more sports like softball or basketball. One of the questions that surround youth sport is who should pay for it. When public funds are not available private businesses have stepped in to ensure the sports are more affordable.
He states. “For eldest sibling, this is a pretty sweet deal.” Kluger also explains that the birth order can affect households with siblings in them, it can affect how the siblings grow up into adulthood, and how the birth order can affect the children after adult hood. Kluger gives examples like, “the first child is always bigger in height and weight, how the first child will be smarter through school, and into adulthood the eldest child will have a better paying job.” These three examples aren’t the only research that he had found. Kluger also found, “that the youngest child is the clown of the family and always trying to make others happy, the youngest siblings see things differently, and younger siblings develop what’s called or known as the theory of mind.” Kluger has much research and evidence that the power of birth order is in fact important or at least has been suspected to be. In the article, “The Power of Birth Order, by Jeffery Kluger,” gives many evidential facts on how households can and are effected by the birth order of siblings and how the children are effected as they reach their adulthood.
“Children use toys to try on new roles, experiment, and explore interests.” (Susan Linn) The toys being sold in the US have clear gender discrimination. Gender stereotypes are more of a problem now than in the 1970’s. “By the mid- 1990’s, however, gendered advertising had returned to 1950’s-levels, and it continued to grow in the 2000’s.” (Alice Robb) America has grown over the years, but we still have a problem with gender stereotypes. The toy industry stereotypes children by peer pressuring them to conform to society. Gendered colors that advertisements and toy stores use affect children in their formative years because what they learn stays with them for their entire lives.
Founded by Rick Kumar, who grew up in an entrepreneurial family environment who’s actively involved in the craft industry, he realized that several products in the market are being sold at a higher price which is quite expensive for the average crafter’s budget. Due to these high costs, a part of the market would rather not buy these craft items. Mr. Kumar saw this as a great opportunity to start a business where crafters can purchase craft items at a reasonable and affordable price. He strategized on buying products in larger volumes which drives to decrease. Multicraft will then enhance, improve and develop the design, production and distribution methods of these fine craft items.

B&D has a good ranking both in Europe and US, which is 19 and 7 respectively.
