Mansa Musa could have taken a much shorter route and gone straight to Mecca, but instead went out of his way to take a longer route which passed through cities who only got gold through trade of salt. By doing this he could make more people want to come to Mecca to receive abundant, free gold without having to trade salt. Next, in Document C it explains that "Mansa Musa's hajj made the difficult trip north to Taghaza"(Document C). This shows that the hajj of Mansa Musa took a difficult trip to a city, which as explained by Ibn Battuta as "nothing but sand with a salt mine"(Document C). If this place was so bad, and all it had was salt and more salt, why would Mansa Musa take the time to go here?

Corporate Governance Issues Which Were Missed 2.1 Conflict of Interest CEO tried to maximize its bonuses and wealth by showing Toshiba’s profitability as much higher than it actually was to the public.

The British, however, had a positive social impact on India because the British revolutionized Indian society, and got rid of many negative social concepts that the Indians went by. Under British rule, Indians politically suffered. The army, government, and police force, was all favored towards the British, and they passed laws that worked against the Indians, like the Rowlatt Act.

In addition, an internal audit department should be established within the corporation. Furthermore, we believe the independence of the auditors should be reviewed and new standards applied.
