Discussion The main argument supporting authoritarianism help economic development is the state can enjoy autonomy in drawing development policy which face less resistance force from the public and more public interests oriented. When countries are developing its economy, huge investment is needed to start-up the economy and state will cut off the current consumption. The party insist for a “better future” will never win in the election. As a result, the country will never have enough resources accumulate for future economic development (Rao, 1984, p.75 as cited in Prezworski A. and Limongi L., 1993, p.54). In this sense, authoritarianism has its own advantage as it can draw and execute policy beneficial to economic development without facing the objection from citizens.
Social entrepreneurship is the attraction of growing attention, money, and talents by entrepreneurs and companies. As the major focus, it aims at developing, funding, and implementing solutions for environmental, cultural, and social issues (Chell, Spence, Perrini, & Harris, 2016).

Net neutrality, succinctly, means that broadband providers should not discriminate where content comes from. Or rather “...to give users the right to use non-harmful network attachments or applications, and give innovators the corresponding freedom to supply them.” Without net neutrality, the Internet could become a more difficult place for startup companies. Should the government alone regulate the Internet with laws, even those intended to protect it. And how would they regulate these laws? Net Neutrality is an important political issue that affects Americans, and these laws should be voted on to determine the state of the Internet.

This research contributes the first study to the application of informing science system to frame the discussion on the inter-disciplinary domain of ethical fashion smart wearable and demonstrates the use of multi-stage valuation approach with a real life BGSS (www.Beddit.com) at the inception stage.

A limitation is related to case study research based on the four selected EFSW cases (Cicret, OMsignal, Ringly, & Beddit) may not be applied in general to the findings of the ethical criteria compliance. Given the tremendous
As an external analyst, not affiliated with Pick n pay, I will offer a fair and objective analysis. Findings In my findings I have identified the main external factors which affect Pick n Pay. It is difficult to tell whether or not a certain factor wlll affect Pick n Pay in practice, even if it seems in theory that it would, so I have included many examples that are specific to Pick n Pay as it is clear that what Pick n Pay is doing in each case has been caused largely by a need created by a macro-environmental factor.
