Yum is more efficient in collection but the ratio may be too high. Its restrictive credit terms may explain its little growth of sales. And the lower ratio guides McDonald’s to apply more aggressive collection efforts. McDonald’s inventory turnover is about three times of Yum’s (Yum’s 52.46 & McDonald’s 12.36 in 2014), indicating McDonald’s more efficient inventory management.

The cultural distance will influence MNEs’ behavior in two ways. First, it will increase the degree of diversity and complexity in the exogenous elements. Second, the MNE’s endogenous ability to cope with such complexity and operate effectively in the host markets will decrease (Gomez-Mejia & Palich, 1997; Hennart & Larimo, 1998). According to Barkema and Vermeulen (1998), greater similarities between cultures will help the firms to gain access to new customers at a lower cost and to successfully establish and manage manufacturing operations. Moreover, the firms can also benefit from the competition against groups of local firms of a relatively homogeneous kind when entering foreign markets.
If Portugal has to spent the labor of 80 people for one year on the production of the wine or 90 workers on the cloth, England may need 120 and 100 people for this. Although, Portugal has an absolute advantage, which means it requires less resources on both goods, it is better to produce the wine only and exchange it to the cloth from England, since England has comparative advantage in the cloth: if it uses 100 labor for the cloth, it loses 5/6

A4.- Pricing Strategy The initial cost strategy to be used will be one of penetration based pricing. Since it is expected to attract a younger audience, it is understood that they have less income, so by offering the product at a lower cost than the competition will help us penetrate the market and achieve significant sales during the first months that the products they go to the market.
