    We were talking about in the US dingus.
    The US has one of the highest percentages of child poverty in the Western world (20%). You could still argue the same. Besides, if so, you must be terrible at communicating.

    Child poverty. We're talking about child labour.

    Maybe you didn't understand because I wasn't talking to you.

    Far more to life than disposable income. Philosophy might help with that.

    But then again, disposable income is nice =p
    Its not about disposable income, its about living and actually surviving.

    And you can't connect crippling child poverty with child labor?

    Business is the only humanities subject you take, I hope?

    As an EU citizen that will very likely not be an issue at all... free labor movement, together with access to unemployment entitlements, etc. Besides, just think of the Scandinavian nations' minimum wages. Or even that of the Netherlands or Luxembourg.

    Plenty of opportunities for the unskilled and yet informed.

    But I suppose you took the 60 pence thing literally, so nevermind.

    EDIT: the link didn't work for me so I might be out of the loop here, so my bad!

    Competitiveness +opportunities/threats I reckon

    If you think America's level of poverty (largest economy in the world with a generous welfare system) is "crippling" when 2.1bn people live on less than $3 a day then you have the same intelligence as a flip flop.

    Stop embarrassing yourself.

    Exact same here.

    But then, you could say that that means that the marking is lenient. Look at the humongous grade boundaries and the sort of people that take up Business Studies (people who really don't like humanities or at least business/economics). The marking being lenient must be the explanation, surely?

    Yet another ironic comment from you.

    You are, quite pitifully, dodging the initial argument of the US encouraging child labor through terrible child poverty. There was no comparison of US underprivileged children to an unfortunate soul in Zambia. Besides, you seem to not understand what purchasing power is in an economy.

    Or the fact that 20% child poverty is a huge number, especially in the 'largest economy in the world' (which is wrong, by the way; GDP is calculated by PPP not nominal, yet again showing ignorance on your part).

    Do you really want to prolong such an argument? You clearly don't have a knack for the humanities, my friend.

    Is it really worth it to learn all the various forms of business models? I think that just forming logical arguments with research alone should be more than fine. Does the mentioning of business theories yield a lot of marks at all?

    Using a model will secure good analysis straight away so I would argue its worth it since it is easy to remember and will secure top marks. I'm revising all of this the day before the exzm so im sure you can take a couple hours now and in the morning to learn the models

    Oh I see, that's good to know! Thank you!

    Yup, definitely seems worth it this way. Do you know if your teacher's said anything about making up 'facts'? The grade boundaries seem to indicate one may get away with it.

    you dont need data or anything to support your application. can you make up your whole application? perhaps, but its not worth it in case the examiner notices and gives you no application markz.

    Do you have autism?

    Don't you have something better to do?

    Butted into a conversation and now you're crying because I've ruined you.

    Child poverty is not child labour.

    Had a quick read of the model online and you could simply say that Google is Task focused. It's focused on innovation so it's likely to require a lot of dedication and focus on the tasks at hand. I'm sure you can expand from there.
