to present some strategy implications for traditional corporations willing to understand how to best compete in a profoundly changing market, as the advent of the share economy does reflect. In fact, to reach this dissertation’s goal, the aim of ‘Analysis 2’ is to understand, in light of the theory presented in the ‘Theoretical framework’ and the insights resulting from ‘Analysis 1’, the different reasons that have led these corporations to participate in the share economy and the motivations behind their specific strategies. For this part of the Analysis, the case study approach, and specifically a multiple-case study method, has been chosen. There are two underlying arguments, in favour of such a methodological choice. First, Yin (2009) claims that, in comparison to other methods, a case study research has the strength to examine in-depth the specific case within its “real-life” context especially when the boundaries between phenomenon and context are not clearly evident.
The experiential notion of the Uppsala model stipulates that the more knowledge a firm have about a market, the more resources will be committed and the psychic distance concept of the model ascertain that a firm would invest in close distance market before investing in psychically distance market. The Uppsala model has been widely adopted in explaining the internationalisation process of Latin American emerging market firms (see Cyrino et al., 2010; (Bianchi, 2014; Goldstein & Pusterla, 2010; Mihailova & Panibratov, 2012; Olaya, Olaya, & Cuéter, 2012; Sim, 2005). This thesis assumes that the growth and evolution of Nigerian firm are through series of incremental steps with domestic focused at the early stage and subsequently internationalisation (Johanson and Vahlne, 1977 and 1990). The thesis also suggests that the economic liberalisation policies that followed the democratic transition in Nigerian led to the emergent of large firms from different sectors of the Nigerian economy. The liberalisation policies also strengthened the firms’ abilities to expand their operations in the domestic market and beyond the Nigeria border (AFDB, 2013).
According to Zolberg, there are two international migration theories. The first one is micro-analytic theory. This perspective approaches to international migration from classical economic view. According to the theories driven by this perspective, wage differentiates between sending and receiving countries are the major reasons for people to migrate. However, by looking at the discussions as we do above like historical ties, state intervention etc.
Managing global market challenges Pushed by challenges, the transformation of organization, which involves three components - information systems, organization structure, and resources deployment, is strongly demanded. In each stages of international market development, the firms will have a different critical component to focus on. Information systems technology The information technology has changed the competitive landscape and interaction between individuals, firms, and between firms and the emerging challenges. The information is crucial for directing strategy, reducing uncertainty and risk, calculating the performance and operating linkages of the company. The information flow between functional units and between operations in different
Consensus abounds and contradictions being just as rampant have lead to the development of a vast economic literature on why countries engage in trade with one another and the type of trade that they indulge in. From early economists like Adam Smith, David Ricardo, Eli Hekscher and Bertil Ohlin forming the foundation of the Standard Trade Theory - expounding the concept of inter-industry trade; we also find an opposing view in the New Trade Theory with Paul Krugman at its helm, which gave a backbone to the concept of intra-industry trade – built on the cornerstones of reaping advantages of economies of scale and an ever present love for variety sustained by product
‘The proper function of empirical work is not to test the validity of the theory but to determine if the theory is working adequately in its limited domain’ (Handbook Of Economics, pg 1342) INTRODUCTION Today people live in a global world which is highly integrated. It can be seen that international markets have expanded rapidly over years. International Economics put emphasis on the implication of international investment, international trade, and international borrowing and lending. International trade thus used up microeconomics models to explain the trend in international economics. This essay will try to examine to what extent empirical studies for international trade can be accurate in relevance to the various theories.
Such a concept is known as the profit-maximizing and competition-based theory. The industrial-organization viewpoint is that organization should focus on external market positioning as it can be an important factor sustaining competitive advantage. The traditional point of view is offered strategic management for attaining competition within the market (Porter, 1981). Technological advancement brought revolutionary change in distribution of information and it is a main element of industry association. Lee and Whang 2000, explained the progress in such environment who are associated and experts of dealing with it.
The advancement hypothesis is consolidated to contemplate the stimulating operator relationship amongst interest and wander—creating interest requires a creating capital stock with a particular ultimate objective to keep up an enduring capital-yield extent and FDI broadens the host's capital stock. The toll detachment hypothesis has been communicated as 'to keep up a key separation from obstacles to trade (obligations, sums, transportation costs, natural aversion to import, outside endeavor is grasped in the country to which it is difficult to convey in light of the
