Why did you skip so many terms? Just curious...
Hello! I might have skipped terms that were obvious or that we had previously seen many times in others courses (MOM, Strategy, FSCM, MOO,...)! But if you notice any important words missing, please let me know which one :)
Alright! I don't remember which terms I was referring to but I will let you know :)

Tu dors sinon parfois haha?
you mean succeed...
Hey guys! Jana and I hesitated about writing this... but this can't keep going on. First of all, although we make different styles of summaries, both our summaries are just as good! They are just different. We often use each other’s summaries too! The competition/war some of you created between us just doesn't make any sense. Jana and I are friends, we've been since the beginning of first year. There's no competition between us, there has never been one! Second of all, we're tired of the mean comments we get, both of us. We're happy when we get constructive comments - we're happy to try and be better and make even better summaries. However, many comments are just mean and personally attacking us. Your comments don’t show that our documents are bad, but it rather shows more about what kind of persons some of you are. If you are not happy with a summary, you're free to use another one or to make your own. We spend a lot of time making them, you should be grateful we share them. We don't understand why people are so mean! People downvote our documents (for no valid reason), our comments on each other’s post, comment on our spelling and grammar, and even creating fake accounts of us (which is illegal). What's the goal of this? If you want us to stop posting, fine, we'll stop. You'll lose more than we'll lose!

Thanks for your work both!! Just wondering how many credits do you have so far :D? What did you order on SD?
@anon im a course expert so I get money instead of credits... but I get credits for the documents from the last semesters, and from those I so far donated to children cancer research three times :) and one time I got a drinking game

@anonymous bang , you're amazing ! Bang it all
Are there a certain number of tutorials you can miss without consequence? Additionally, Is there a course assignment if a certain number of tutorials aren't attended? I didn't see anything about it in the course manual.
When will they publish the results?
Why isnt it A? Because NTB are barriers that rely on NON-tariff means.
View 5 more comments
But isn't the idiosyncratic one part of a firms code of conduct and therefore not an actual barrier since its limited to one firm? idiosyncratic risk is also firm specific risk, hence i figured that this one is also for individual firms
But doesnt infant industry tariff means that competitors in that industry wanting to engage with that country have to pay tariffs, to make it fair for the incumbent firms, therefore it is a tariff barrier.?
Do we have to know this?
i mean its pretty obvious isnt it. i think we covered it in marketing mgmt tho not thus course

Why is question 3 answer D? I thought it would be C
assertive and decisive behaviour (or also leadership style) is a characteristic for a masculine society. The missing compassion also underlines that fact since compassion is a characteristic for feminine societies :))

why is question 45 answer D??
Is this really C? I feel that it must be A
You are mixing up two different frameworks. The one for this question is with the dodger,defender, contender and extender.
Thanks, is the dodger, defender etc. also relevant for tomorrow? I can't remember reading it

Can anyone explain to me what an FDI stock is? I also have the definition from the book but I don't get it :/
With Commuter assignments and Contract work, there is still the need to send someone to a foreign place. I think its only virtual team (A)
yea true... But in the book (p. 470) it says that expat assignments are quite expensive for employers, "such that many MNEs have moved to shorter assignments and non-traditional forms of expatriation, such as contract work, commuter assignments and virtual teams"
pretty sure its B, check page 176
Wouldn't it be D? as all of the given answers show a political risk?
yup D is correct
I would argue it's 10 A "The nationalization of a company's assets abroad" In the book it states that it is one of the most extreme political risks (p.56 in the 1st edition)

It was about reducing tariffs so yeah kinda positive, but reducing tariffs is good for global companies and bad for local companies because of more competition so could also be a risk. I would go for D
I agree with you Lennard!!
For this one i'm pretty sure it's a
why does setting up a plant in eurozone reduces the exchange rate risk?
well if your home is the eurozone and you set up a plant in the eurozone there is, in fact, no exchange rate risk at all :D
Also if you sell in other countries in the eurozone you use the same currency for all of them. When the £ is not broadly used.
Just put the list of words in the quizlet, might be helpful for learning
It's awesome! thank u
Why would you say it's a MNE and not an international business? I don't see where the FDI is of the company?
View 2 more comments
and MNE would mean they're operating in multiple countries right?
Yes, although multiple only means more than one per definition. The standalone feature of a MNE is that is has FDI in the host country(ies) it operates!
I would argue that the infant industry argument is an argument against free trade but not a non-tarriff barrier as it would induce a tariff to protect the specified industries. On the other hand an idiosyncratic health and safety standards would imply that some product are prohibited which is a barrier to entry whithout any tariff.

There wasn't an answer given for question 30 right? Does anyone know it?
It should be D as a "flow is a snapshot of a given point in time, and stock represents CUMULATING volume."
Why can't we argue for a full acquisition? Don't you have less integration risks when using something already established ?
View 1 more comment
I would argue the same, as they may also be referring to the integration challenges regarding Full Acquisition.
Yes I interpreted integration risks differently as well. Thanks both of you!
Can't we say this is not a option for companies anyways? Because D) is a decision taken by governments and not firms...
What exactly is your question? :-) D is the right answer because, as you already said, it's a measure taken by the government and not by a company - all the other options can be used by a company to reduce their exposure to exchange risk!
Oh I thought the answer was C, nvm.. Thanks!
