  • Baileys Irish Cream Case Study - 1,654 words
    Baileys Irish Cream Case Study The global liquor market has changed immensely in the last 20 years. Since the early eighties, people have discovered that it is better for their health if they drink in moderation, as opposed to heavy drinking. Due to this change in consumers drinking habits, people generally drink less liquor than they used to. According to our text, the per capita consumption of liqueurs (liters per person over 18) dropped from 1 liter in 1986 to 0.90 liters in 1990.

  • Banned And Censored Music - 1,100 words
    Banned and Censored Music Banned and Censored Music The discussion of whether or not the censorship of music is constitutionally sound has come about. This problem has been around since the beginning of music in one way or another. The fact of the matter is that there is technically no such thing as the censorship of music in the United States(Banned Music 1). Although that is supposedly the case, that statement can be very misleading. It is stated in the First Amendment of the United States Constitution that every American is granted the Freedom Of Speech. This includes all musicians. Contrary to this statement, there has been a numerous amount of cases in which a song or music group has be ...

  • Blood, Sweat Shears: A Closer Look At Sweatshops - 1,145 words
    ... fornia contract sweatshops (Department of Labor, 4). There are probably sweatshops in every country in the world - anywhere where there is a pool of desperate, exploitable workers. Logically, the poorer a country is the more exploitable its people are. Labor violations are, therefore, especially widespread in third world countries. Nike has been criticized for unethical labor practices in its Chinese, Vietnamese and Indonesian shoe factories, and Haitian garment factories. Non-profit groups have documented the labor violations of retailers like Philips-Van Heusen and the Gap in factories throughout Latin America. As mentioned above, however, developing countries are not the only ones wit ...

Example 2: Price-fixing-Managers of firms manufacturing paper bags used for packaging foods, coffee, and other goods were fined for getting together and conspiring to fix the prices of those paper bags.

  • Cd Burners - 509 words
    Cd Burners When the very first MP3/CD players arrived at MP3.com last year, we fell in love. This invention that shuttled hundred-song CDs around - CDs that previously would only play on other computers - was pretty darn exciting to geeks like us. So excited, in fact, that we overlooked that half the players didn't work, and the rest lacked the barest features anyone would ask for. The honeymoon didn't last long. One look at all the CD burners dotting the suburban countryside indicated the hunger for a quality player was too strong for these half-baked first generation players to satisfy. But while major corporations like RCA and Sony were tripping over their feet trying to get a product out ...

  • Computer Buying - 1,326 words
    Computer Buying Today, computers are common.

Buying a computer can be a daunting task, particularly if you're new to the high technology marketplace. You will be spending anywhere from one to several thousand dollars on the computer equipment alone, so you'll need to do homework first.
