As more countries rethink their priorities, multinationals must proceed with caution. by Ian Bremmer


n the past few years, Pfizer has encountered globalization’s new phase. As part of the Indian government’s efforts to make medicine accessible to as many people as possible, in February 2013 India’s
Patent Office revoked Pfizer’s patent for the cancer drug Sutent and granted a domestic manufacturer, Cipla, the right to produce a cheaper generic version. India’s Intellectual Property Appellate Board has since set aside the decision and has directed the Patent Office to reassess the case. In
China, meanwhile, the government has been slashing drug prices to reduce health care costs. Beijing established price ceilings on essential drugs in 2009 and lowered the ceiling by around 30% in 2011, and

it has pledged to expand the list of essential drugs to more than 500 medications by 2014. Such moves pose major risks for a multinational company like Pfizer: Lower prices create disincentives for quality control, and China’s hospitals, which rely on drug sales for profits, are pushing inexpensive locally made products.
Until 2008 going global seemed to make sense for just about every company in the world. Western markets were extremely competitive, population expansion had slowed and incomes had flattened, and corporate operating costs were rising. Developing nations, by contrast, boasted population growth, rising salaries, relatively low wages, and a welcoming climate for foreign

Rule of Perputities

...Question: What is the Common Law Rule of Perpetuities? Answer: It’s a property rule that pertains to common law and it states that no interest in land is good unless it is vested within 21 years after the creation of the interest. Question: How did the rule come about? Answer: John Robert Gray made the rule back in the early 1900’s(around the 1930’s from what I could find)which was meant to be a rule against the remoteness of vesting by insisting on the appropriate use of techniques which was meant save gifts from invalidity and regulates the devolution of wealth from generation to generation but over the years the rule has been reworded, twisted and in some cases completely abolished depending on the state. Question: How does the rule apply today? and Does it still apply in the state of Colorado? Answer: the rule against perpetuities has been modified by laws passed by the government in many jurisdictions such that it takes a "wait and see" approach. For Example: that means they would just wait till you die and then the property would revert to the estate of the person who gave it to you. As for does it still apply in Colorado? The state of Colorado as well as 29 other states(Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington and West......

Volcker Rule

...Memorandum The Volcker Rule Introduction The regulation of financial institutions has long been a controversial subject in the United States of America, going through cycles of increasing or decreasing rigorousness. Following the Stock Market Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression, the US Congress enacted several laws designed to regulate financial institutions. One of these laws, the Banking Act of 1933, included four provisions limiting the ability of deposit-taking institutions to trade for their own benefit. These provisions are colloquially referred to as the Glass-Steagall Act. GlassSteagall forbade commercial banks from dealing, underwriting and investing in most securities. By the late 1990s, the resolve to enforce Glass-Steagall faded, shown particularly by the Fed’s blessing of the Citicorp/Travelers Group merger. In 1999, President Clinton signed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act into law, effectively repealing the Glass-Steagall Act. Echoing the political landscape following the Great Depression, the aftermath of the Great Recession saw a resurgence in grassroots campaigns to reinstitute tougher regulations on banks and financial institutions. The bailouts given to many large banks fueled this public outrage, especially in the light of the million Americans losing their homes to foreclosure. A recently inaugurated Obama administration sought to prevent a reoccurrence of the financial crisis by tightening government regulation of financial institutions. This eventually......

...Service Providers and for the Regulator. Simplification of Value Added Services will assist in lowering of the bundled services’ cost. This in turn can have a rippling effect on the proliferation of Broadband in Pakistan. It was felt that the spread of Broadband would not happen until the regulator paves the way for more services under a single umbrella. This will in turn enable more bandwidth requirements by the consumers, more bandwidth provisioning by the Service providers and more opportunities for the incumbent and new Infrastructure providers.

...Commanding Heights: The New Rules to the Game Reaction The Economic Environment ECO 5003 Master’s Science in Management Southern Nazarene University Professor Jeff Seyfert LaToya Anderson December 16, 2013 Summary The video Commanding Heights Episode Three, The New Rules to the Game focuses on the United States economy during the early 1990’s. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was a significant part of the introduction into The New Rules to the Game. The NAFTA was signed on January 1, 1994 between the United States of America, Canada, and Mexico. The NAFTA was entered as an agreement to reduce barrier trade between the three countries. The United States Economy was declining significantly while other economies such as Japan were booming. NAFTA became a subject during the 1992 elections further separating Democrats from Republicans. President Bill Clinton supported NAFTA but like many policies believed that it need provisions by forcing Mexico to increase standards in the labor force and pollution. Labor unions were for Clinton’s proposal and provided support for him to win the election. Once NAFTA was enacted trade among the three countries increased significantly. The Gross Domestic Product of each country also increased, however Mexico had the largest growth. The development of Mexico had a negative impact on some parts of North America by opportunities shifting to workers south of the border. After NAFTA, Clinton began to......

...Company After a rapid growth in its business during recent years, the Clarkson Lumber Company, in the spring of 1996, anticipated a further substantial increase in sales. Despite good profits, the company had experienced a shortage of cash and had found it necessary to increase its borrowing from the Suburban National Bank to $399,000 in the spring of 1996. The maximum loan that Suburban National would make to any one borrower was $400,000 and Clarkson had been able to stay within this limit only by relying very heavily on trade credit. In addition, Suburban was now asking that Mr. Clarkson guarantee the loan personally. Keith Clarkson, sole owner and president of the Clarkson Lumber Company, was therefore actively looking elsewhere for a new banking relationship where he would be able to negotiate a larger loan that did not require a personal guarantee. Mr. Clarkson had recently been introduced by a friend to George Dodge, an officer of a much larger bank, the Northrup National Bank. The two men had tentatively discussed the possibility that the Northrup bank might extend a line of credit to Clarkson Lumber up to a maximum amount of $750,000. Mr. Clarkson thought that a loan of this size would improve profitability by allowing him to take full advantage of trade discounts. Subsequent to this discussion, Mr. Dodge had arrange for the credit department of the Northrup National Bank to investigate Mr. Clarkson and his company. The Clarkson Lumber Company had been founded in......

...audience back to the days of 1950s television. To be more specific, the film focuses on the news team responsible for the CBS public affairs program See It Now (1951-58). This film shows the audience the semi-fictional recreation of the near-destruction of civil liberties and freedom of the press and self-expression. The cast recreates the great "debate" between Edward Murrow, and Joseph McCarthy. Murrow was a television news broadcaster and McCarthy was A U.S. Senator from the state of Wisconsin. In the 1950s, McCarthy had publicly called for the removal in government offices, the career field, and basically society, of all citizens who had ever been a or associated with the communist party, even though it was not illegal. McCarthy used the power of his position to attack all those he disagreed with by hiding his attack under the appearance of patriotism. Murrow, as a TV news broadcaster, fought against McCarthy’s techniques and successfully challenged and eventually discredited the senator on his show. Murrow first defends Milo Radulovich, a man from Dexter Michigan, who is facing removal from the Air Force because of his sister's political leanings and because his father reading a newspaper. Murrow attacks McCarthy on one of his shows. A very public issue stems when McCarthy responds by accusing Murrow of being a communist. The film is outlined by Murrow’s speech to the Radio and Television News Directors Association in 1958, in which Murrow harshly cautions his audience......
