Empirical questions may require discussion of methodologies, empirical strategies, and interpretation of empirical findings.

This is an international business paper that needs to discuss exchange rate models, currency risk and currency risk management and the quantification of risk in international investments.
. You should expect analytical, theoretical/conceptual, and empirical questions. Analytical questions require calculations, explanations of your logic in your analytical work, and interpretation of your results. Conceptual questions require crafting an argument based on theory and interpretation of real-life scenarios based on a theoretical framework. Empirical questions may require discussion of methodologies, empirical strategies, and interpretation of empirical findings. The exam question may be composed of a combination of all three.
I would recommend you to be well versed in exchange rate models, currency risk and currency risk management, and quantification of risk in the context of international investments. Pay close attention to the theoretical and empirical literature on these issues as well as current issues as they relate to these areas.
The exam’s purpose is to evaluate your ability to use field-specific knowledge to craft arguments and offer solutions through critical thinking and analysis.

Disadvantages of decision (opportunity cost)

Please respond to this post:
For this project, since it’s not within my area of expertise, I will review current companies who conduct business in the EU to review the pros and cons of operating internationally. I would review business operations details provided by the country based on SEC filings and review the course materials for additional background reference. While reviewing the outline requirements, I referenced the IP5 details.
Introduction
Comparative analysis
Top two domestically operating firms
Top two EU operating firms internationally
Company analysis
Operations decision – international (EU) vs domestic
SWOT analysis
Advantages of decision
Disadvantages of decision (opportunity cost)

I will follow the same process to research the advantages and disadvantages of doing business outside of the european union.

Please respond to this post:
I will prepare for the unit 5 individual project by researching the benefits of using acquisitions for global expansion. This will give me insight into the advantages and disadvantages I should consider as I am making the decision to acquire an organization inside or outside of the European Union. Next I will research the advantages and disadvantages of doing business within the European Union. During my research, I will analyze employment laws, trade regulations, and political impacts to businesses. I will follow the same process to research the advantages and disadvantages of doing business outside of the European Union. The results of my research will then be used to determine if my business acquisition will be inside or outside the European Union. For the second half of the project, I will research the benefits of multinational corporations investing outside of their home countries and why financial institutions prefer to provide credit outside of their home country. I will utilize Intellipath, the AIU library, and Google scholar to research all aspects of the project.
Introduction

There is a limit of 40 hours usage per week for each machine.

Solving the following problem in Excel using solver, ( you can skip the a. part of the assignment); b. (5p) A businessman is considering opening a small specialized trucking firm. To make the firm profitable, it is estimated that it must have a daily trucking capacity of at least 84,000 cu. ft. Two types of trucks are appropriate for the specialized operation. Their characteristics and costs are summarized in the table below. Note that truck 2 requires 3 drivers for long haul trips. There are 41 potential drivers available and there are facilities for at most 40 trucks. The businessman’s objective is to minimize the total cost outlay for trucks. Capacity Drivers Truck Cost (Cu. ft.) Needed Small $18,000 2,400 1 Large $45,000 6,000 3 Solve the problem with excels solver and note there are alternate optimal solutions. i) Which optimal solution does excel’s solver give? Find with a slightly changed model, which optimal solution: ii) uses only one type of truck? iii) utilizes the minimum total number of trucks? iv) uses the same number of small and large trucks? c. (6p) Three products can be produced at two machining centers during a one-week period. The products may be produced in fractional amounts. The linear relationships describing this situation are listed below. The variables and constraints are: A, B and C are the amounts of the three products in units. The revenue per unit is $20, $30 and $25 respectively. R1 and R2 are the amounts of raw materials used in kilograms. The cost per kilogram is $6 and $8 respectively. Two machines perform operations on the product. Each machine is available for 40 hours during the week. The operation times are shown in the machine constraints. The market limits production in each week for A, B and C to 10, 20 and 10 units respectively. Based on this information a linear programming model is shown below. All the variables in the above model may assume fractional values. Max. Profit: P = 20A + 30B + 25C – 6R1 – 8R2 Subject to: Time limit on machine 1: 5A + 8B + 10C <= 40 (hours) Time limit on machine 2: 8A + 6B + 2C <= 40 (hours) Raw material 1 used: R1 = 1A + 2B + 0.75C Raw material 2 used: R2 = 0.5A + 1B + 0.5C Market Limits and non-negativity: 0 <= A <= 10, 0 <= B <= 20, 0 <= C 0, the charge is $50. ii. There is a limit of 40 hours usage per week for each machine. There is a setup time for each product that is 5 hours per setup on machine 1, and 3 hours per setup on machine 2. The setup times reduce the hours available to produce the products. The setup times are the same for each product. iii. In addition to the machines you already own, you are allowed to purchase up to two more machines of each type. Each machine provides a work capacity of 40 hours per week. To add one additional machine of type 1 the cost is $50 per week. To add a third machine of type 1, the cost is $45 per week. To add one additional machine of type 2 the cost is $75 per week. To add a third machine of type 2, the cost is $60 per week.

Such a tax break could lead to a sharp increase in the amount of repatriated earnings and raise tax revenues.

Question 1: When are quantity restrictions not the same as price restrictions (via taxes)? Describe one situation in which the government would be better off imposing quantity restrictions than setting a tax, and explain why quantity restrictions are better in that case.
Question 2: Some have argued in favor of reducing taxes on repatriated earnings that companies operating in the United States have made in other countries. Such a tax break could lead to a sharp increase in the amount of repatriated earnings and raise tax revenues. If such an increase were temporary, what would be the effect on the real budget deficit for the current year? What would be the effect on the structural deficit? Explain.
Question 3: Suppose your town wishes to build a dam to protect itself from the risk of flooding. Despite the fact that each family in the town is willing and able to pay up to $200 to have the dam built and it will cost only $150 per family, a voluntary contribution campaign is unable to raise enough funds to build the dam. Why? What type of problem is this, and what solution would you recommend?
ONLY CHAPTERS 1,4, AND 5 ARE RELEVANT.
