International trade, Government Influence and Trade, and Cross-National Cooperation and Agreements

International trade, Government Influence and Trade, and Cross-National Cooperation and Agreements

Assignment 2

Consider the global operations of the tech giant Apple and make use of the concepts from this week in regards to International trade, Government Influence and Trade, and Cross-National Cooperation and Agreements. Write a case study report to the corporate level executives of Apple located in the US, regarding government intervention, protectionist policies and international agreements into a country of your choice that are expected in the period 2017 to 2019.  What actions should Apple take in regards to these issues (hint – these actions should be your solutions in your case).  Do not use the same country you pick for this weeks assignment 2, pick a different country.

Content should be between 600 and 900 words with at least three references (the textbook should be one).  Proper APA citations should be used throughout the case for information that is not your own.  Focus the scope of your response to align with concepts from chapters 6, 7 and 8 from the textbook, as well as other outside research.

It is my expectation that you use the case methodology outlined in the Case Response Expectations folder in the Course Content. This methodology will help you to optimize your submission. YOU MUST have all 8 sections of a case:

Introduction

Analysis

Related Assumptions

Alternatives/Solutions

Evaluation

Recommendation

Implementation

Conclusion

I highly recommend you outline each section clearly in your case. I expect you to come up with the specific problem statement and provide that in the intro. I also expect you to provide at least 3 clear and reasonable alternatives/solutions to your problem in the alternatives/solutions section.

A business case approach is required, and not a traditional academic paper. Do NOT give the details and history. ONLY relate items regarding your recommendations for the future. This implies short, directed paragraphs, with a strong structure. Use many headings and topic sentences for every paragraph.
