After reading through the weekly readings navigate to the discussion board to answer the following questions.
A common theme emerges from each of the articles posted. That theme is “the cost of doing business”. Firms often have innovate products such as the Washington Redskins, or products that are innovative but used in the wrong way–e.g. the solar-powered trash can indoors. Firms also have issues with the costs of production–e.g. the Chevy volt. Incentives should also be considered when looking at the cost of capital, such as in France and checklists at autoshops.
As a consultant to these firms, how would you handle the issues that each faces to provide a greater level of profitablity? Specifically, what issues are these firms/country facing? Have they ignored anything? Are they being efficient/inefficient? Use the concepts found in chapters 3, 4, and 5 to answer this question.
