Does Catatech currently have a sustainable competitive advantage? Why/why not? Catatech currently does not have a sustainable competitive advantage. This is so because they still have that old school mentality regarding business. There have been a few restraints such as implementing electronic commerce.
I believe that the the abolition of private prisons would be the best course of action to take. It is completely unconstitutional, from my perspective, to allow enterprises to make a profit off of prisoners, who are, in reality, just people who have made a mistake. It is a given that there are exceptions to this, but as Representative Ellison stated, “Incarceration should be about rehabilitation, not profit.” The fact that nothing has been done due to the clutch these corporations have on legislators is terrifying to me, and taking a stance against them would be sending a message to all wealthy businesses across the U.S., making it clear that the government can not be bought out. In a cost-benefit analysis, as the Justice is Not for Sale Act provides, it is much more fiscally responsible to invest in the rehabilitation of inmates than it is to hire private prisons.
It is there to protect consumers from predatory business practices by ensuring that fair competition exists in an open-market economy. How is breaking the Anti-trust law unethical? The law is designed to create a free market foundation to create a table economy. If companies allocate customers it eradicates competition which may have a negative impact on quality of the service provider. Allocation of customers also takes away the customers right to chose, because the service provider has chosen you one is n longer entitled to their preference.
The court’s ruling was that Microsoft had committed monopolization, attempted monopolization, and tying in violation of section 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act; and as remedy, ordered a breakup of Microsoft. I disagree with the ruling made against Microsoft. Liability of monopolization is not violated if the power in the market is due to superior product. The company’s technology was innovative and successful which was the reason they dominated the market and therefore, not a violation of the monopolization liability. In addition, other firms had equal opportunities to work in the market and Microsoft had competition.
This is usually because of manifesto promises or ideology, and if these groups whose aims aren’t shared by government they will be outsiders. One of the biggest reasons groups are insiders or outsiders is because of the governments agenda. This shows the overarching importance of the agenda in demonstrating how pluralism isn’t very useful. Furthermore, groups aren’t equal because some have elites or have more resources which shows the disparity between groups who succeed or fail. For all the above reasons pluralism as a theory isn’t useful, although stoker in his quote isn’t completely wrong.
industry exist if broader outlook is considered. Viewing any industry as technologically mature often leads to strategic disaster. Moreover, many important innovations for competitive advantage are mundane and involve no scientific break-through. Innovation can have important strategic implications for low tech as well as hi-tech companies. Porter also addressed that the technology can alter the nature and basis of rivalry among existing competition in several ways.
Unfortunately to build the value chain we would need a more thorough investigation on the TJ’s processes and arrangements. In my opinion to make the proper investigation of the resources gaps and missed capabilities it is required to be very familiar with the company’s organizational aspects and business process. But due to the fact the company does not publish any investor reports and is has never gone public (Stock Exchange or Private equity funding). In my opinion the Porter’s tool such as Value chain analysis in this case has disadvantages comparing to Grant’s simple approach to resource management and strategic planning. According to Barney (1991), a firm can be said to possess competitive advantage when it achieves superior performance over its competitors by implementing a value-creating strategy that is not simultaneously being implemented by a competitor.
Proponents of this practice insist that deregulation amounts to corporate welfare and results in many industries exploiting their workers, the consumers, and the environment to maximize profit. These individuals analyze the effects of regulation, and “This, in turn, helps advance a ‘constitutive interpretation’ of the role of regulation—a perspective that focuses on the role of regulation in the continuing expansion, adaptation and transformation of capitalism.” (Levi-Faur). The theory of regulated capitalism can further be divided into two categories: economic regulation and social regulation. Economic regulation controls prices. It is designed to protect consumers and small businesses, and “... it often is justified on the grounds that fully competitive market conditions do not exist and therefore cannot provide such protections themselves.” (U.S. Department of State).
The first con of net neutrality is that it will prevent competition in the free market. If the internet is regulated by the government that will stifle the free market because if every company if forced to compete on a level playing then the best business won’t be able to rise to the cream of the crop through natural competition. If one ISP raises their prices then that person can just switch over to the company with cheaper rates. A free market is healthy not only for businesses but for the overall economy as well because it will force other companies to have step their game up in order
People have discovered ways to gain free access to intellectual properties via the internet. Piracy has seemingly become a threat to the economy of companies that own an intellectual product because it causes them to lose their profit. Internet Piracy gives people access to media without having them pay and allows them the comfort of just downloading a file or even streaming from the internet.Piracy is considered by most as morally wrong and degrading the quality and reputation of certain intellectual properties. Internet piracy is an immoral act which has been thought of as equal to stealing.People who work should not have their effort taken for granted such as having their work acquired by others for free in a convenient way such as the
