...In Shenzhen, located in the middle of China’s manufacturing heartland, about a quarter of a million workers are assembling electronic devices. These devices are made to be sold in Western markets. Foxconn runs many of these businesses. They make products for Apple and other brands. Foxconn employs one and a half million workers all across China. Foxconn has become an economic threat to both China and America. Their cheap foreign labour reduces enconomic growth to both countries. The labour share of national income has been decreasing across the world since the 1980s. Countries affected include South Korea, Germany, Japan, Britain, Mexico and The United States. Labour captured in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development has fallen by 4% from the early 1990s to the 2000s. A decline of that nature was not expected. Economists saw the income flowing from labour and capital as fixed. This has helped top wage earners as their income has increased even though the labour share has decreased. Workers in America blame the cheap labour for the slump in income. They have been proven correct according to research by Michael Elsby of the University of Edinburgh, Bart Hobjin of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and Aysegul Sahin of the Ferderal Reserve Bank of New York. They compared how much different industries in America are exposed to competition from imports and the decline in labour share in every industry. An increase in imports is correlated to a......

...perceived value among consumers and potential customers when the cost is similar with others. Second, the success of differentiation is decided by the ideas, the creation, not the price. Company don’t need to face the price competition with other companies. For example, a car manufacturer may differentiate its line of cars as an image enhancer or status symbol while other companies focus on cost savings. Small businesses can focus the differentiation strategy on the quality and design of their products and gain a competitive advantage in the market without decreasing their price. Further more, taking differentiation strategy will build the brand loyalty, customers will choose the product by the special design or reputation. The good example pf product differentiation was in the early 2000s, when Google began taking over the search engine business on the internet. Before Google, there were a variety of options to use if you had to search for something online. While most of those search engines would give you the same, adequate results, they also all followed the same presentation, which at the time was pretty much just a list of web pages among some busy advertisements, new links, and images. Google’s differentiation strategy was twofold. First simplicity, Google was minimalistic. When you went to, you saw two things: the name ‘google’ and a box where you could type your search term. Users loved the design of it. The second differentiation was the algorithm used......
