ECO 561 Week 6

Revise your Week 3 economic analysis using the feedback provided by your facilitator to evaluate the challenges of expanding your company’s production to a foreign market. This will require you to revise previously recommended pricing and non-pricing strategies for your company’s product based on the selected country’s economy’s stage in the business cycle and the projected economic conditions.

  • Discuss the evidence that supports your recommendations. Select a foreign market in which to expand your chosen product. Write a paper (including any material you include from your Week 3 assignment) detailing your findings.
  • The use of tables and/or charts to display economic data over the time period discussed is highly encouraged.
  • Describe current global economic conditions and their effect on local macroeconomic indicators in your selected country.
  • Consider forecasts for population growth, GDP growth, GDP per capita growth, export growth, and sales growth.
  • Evaluate the competitors’ existing production in the chosen country. Evaluate forecast sales in the selected country.
  • Determine the type of economy that exists in your selected country – closed, mixed, or market.
  • What is the difference between these types of economies and how might this affect your expansion?
  • Describe how your chosen country’s current credit market conditions affect demand for your product or service and your planning or operating decision for your production in that country.
  • Analyze the role of the selected country’s central bank on that country’s economy. Evaluate the availability, education, and job skills of the work force in the selected country.
  • Discuss the additional challenges of international production, such as political stability, availability of government financing or other incentives, threat of capital controls, and exchange rate risks.
  • Discuss any additional supply chain challenges you anticipate if attempting to sell your product made in your chosen country to countries outside of that market.
