    anyone got good globalisation examples ? i have just crappy ones

    Bangladesh was 0.6% growth rate before 1990 and with under-five mortality rate of 149, however between 1990-2006 the growth rate grew to 2.9% and the mortality rate improved to 73 (halved). Not nearly a wealthy country, especially due to recent (2006?) which encompassed 60% of the country, however global economics is making an improvement here.

    Nigeria’s economy in the years leading up to 1990 shrank 1.4% annually on average with a child mortality rate of 230. Since then growth has been no higher than 0.7% despite being oil rich. Over the past 15 years £50bn has left the country in oil, however Nigeria has seen little of it, this could be due to corruption or due to the multinationals like BP and Shell. Nigeria has seen little benefit of globalisation.

    Increased tax on petrol doesn’t affect Shell much as it is price inelastic, so costs are passed on to customers and government makes a lot in tax, which can lead to greater government spending which in turn can lead to greater customer spending.

    Hey! Can you just go though of what Zappos can be used for as I know they had a quite relaxing culture and they gave 1000 dollars if their employees are not committed to work i.e oif they leave..
    In Section A, if a question comes up on:
    -Core values
    -Long-term strategy
    -Vision
    -Empowerment
    or anything along those lines, you can mention Zappos. plus Hsieh is a great leader

    SO they had a democratic leadership, and they have emploweredtheir employees--was that when Link Exhange took over?

    You need 180 UMS at A2 level and 320 overall.... (well 180 UMS at A2 and 80% overall anyways...)

    I know what is your point? The poster had a B at AS, therefore if they got 180 UMS at A2, they would get an A*. The fact that my post has been negged says a lot about business studies students.

    As you may have noticed you answear the question using examples which could of have been costly in the real exam..
    so instead of jumping straight into the question state your point explain it with theory annnnd thennnn use the examples.. hope that helps
    What do you think of this one? This is one of the first culture ones I didName:  -1.jpg

    Word of advice ALWAYS refer back to the question that way if you have written alot of bs it will seem good and legit. Got me a very high B with no revision apart from a brief chat with my teacher before the exam.
    did you do the exam in january?

    I got over 90% at AS and I (think) I did well in unit 3, say low A high B , so any idea what the lowest I coulod get on this paper is to get an A overall??

    Are you being for real? So you didn't have any examples of businesses or anything? :O
    100% truthful i shouldnt have done the exam in january but my teachers entered us anyway because they thought it would help us understand what we would need to do for the exam in june. I just talked to my teacher about a few big companies and just used my general knowledge and the technique i leanrnt from buss3 and chatted BS thru the whole exam.

    Right before the exam i couldnt be bothered to do it because i thought i would blantly fail but my teacher forced me because if i didnt go i would have to pay a find apparently.

    Worked out in the end. :biggrin::biggrin:

    Think thats mad this is even more crazy,
    I got my buss2 remarked from a 72/120ums all the way up to 117/120 ums.
