\"China Myth, China Facts\"
In this study, we reviewed and analyzed the three common myths that new expatriate may keep
due to the biased information informally from stereotypes and formally from management-training
programs. They are the things these transnational managers often believe to be true, but in reality, it’s
somehow different or someone’s expectations. Our role in this assignment is to recognize those myths
and carefully examine the situation described in the case and then recommend appropriate action steps.
The purpose is to understand culture, socialization and evaluate the most effective approach to managing
across cultures. The method used is mainly secondary.
Surprisingly, this presentation has challenged some of the presuppositions we held about Chinese
culture. We uncovered that as China has now developed into the less repressive regime and more matured
economy, there is a propensity that a new practice has also erupted. It was justified in the case study that
the new behavior in China now is that, collectivism has been replaced with individualism; long-term
deliberation with real-time reaction; and risk aversion with risk tolerance. The consciousness of those
changes can make us more successful in our international assignment. We also disclosed that since it is
impossible to know and learn about every culture in this world and much more of its customs, it
is therefore crucial for both Western and Chinese managers to improve their cultural intelligence
(CQ). With improved CQ of motivation, cognitive, metacognitive and behavioral, each side can
learn how to predict and efficiently adapt their behavior and views to every culture in the world.

Law, finance, and economic growth in China. Franklin Allena, Jun Qianb, Meijun Qian
China is an important counterexample to the findings in the law, institutions, finance, and
growth literature: Neither its legal nor financial system is well developed, yet it has one of the
fastest growing economies. While the law–finance–growth nexus applies to the State Sector
and the Listed Sector, with arguably poorer applicable legal and financial mechanisms, the
Private Sector grows much faster than the others and provides most of the economy’s growth.
The imbalance among the three sectors suggests that alternative financing channels and governance mechanisms, such as those based on reputation and relationships, support the
growth of the Private Sector.
AFAS 222-001The Civil Rights Act 1964
You will write and submit a six page (excluding title/citation pages) draft of your research paper on the importance of your chosen topic. Your research paper should explore a historical theme of the oppression of Africana people such as racism, neo-colonialism, sexism, classism, capitalism, educational indoctrination and ideology, culture and identity, philosophy and morality. You are expected to consult in addition to the text three (3) additional secondary sources ( use only one website as a research source; the other two or more sources should be academic print journals/books from the main library or elsewhere). Use MLA citation.
1) Useful hints or organization: a) Have a one or two paragraph introduction which should provide a clear explanation/ analysis of your chosen topic leading to your thesis statement. b) The thesis statement should be underlined. It must be an
assertion that reflects your understanding or stance on the subject of your essay.
2) In general, the body of your essay should be organized around assertions to be explained and supported by evidence in the rest of the paragraph. These assertions in well-stated topic sentences should serve as guidelines to help your reader follow the development of your essay. For this reason, topic sentences should be placed at the beginning of each paragraph. The content of each paragraph should clarify and define the substance of the topic sentence in support of the essay’s overall purpose.
3) The concluding paragraph should not be a mirror image of the introduction nor should it be a mere summary of the supporting points in the essay. Your conclusion should draw persuasive inferences strengthening the truth and validity of your thesis assertion and why these deepen and broaden your reader’s understanding of the significance and importance of your topic.
THE PROPOSAL FOR THE PAPER
The Civil Rights Act of 1964, which was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson, is considered as one of the most important landmark of civil rights movement in the United States. It aimed to end the inequality to African Americans. First proposed by President John F. Kennedy in 1963, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 ended the discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin and the racial segregation in public places. Women’s rights played an important role in this act. The prohibition on sex discrimination was added to Civil Rights Act of 1964, after the Equal Pay Act of 1963, which was designed to avoid wage differentials based on genders. It also forbade the unequal voter registration right, which led to the Voting Rights Act later in 1965. I am really interested in this topic because Civil Rights Act of 1964 was the turning point for those discriminated people. They started to gain their basic rights. People began to be treated equally since then. People’s lives did change after this act. It was a really meaningful and important event in the civil rights history. To me, I really agree that everyone in the world should be treated equally, which is same as the thoughts in Civil Rights Act of 1964. In my research, I will explain why and how this act was proposed. I am going to write about what this act was exactly about and how people’s lives changed after this act. In addition, there were lots of difficulties when carrying out this act. I also will explain why these people tried to argue about the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In the end, there will be a conclusion about this act and I am going to talk about its further influences.

Project Phase I: Selection of Data to be Collected
1. Select a business/corporation or industry that you are interested in or would potentially like to have a career in one day.
2. Identify a specific variable of interest (dependent variable) for the business/corporation/industry of your choice. Think about what other variables (independent variables) you believe would affect, predict or have a relationship with your chosen variable. Select a minimum of 10 total variables to examine: at least 2 must be categorical and at least 2 must be continuous (numeric).
3. Find a resource(s) where you can gather data points about your variables for your chosen business/corporation/industry. These data points cannot be time points or over time - they must be the same year (or close) for all the variables you are using for your project.
4. Write up your Project Phase I paper.
a. The paper should be a ONE PAGE paper and written for a decision-maker of the business/corporation/industry you selected
b. Include a description of the business/corporation/industry you chose for your project.
c. Include a brief description of all your independent variables (minimum of 10)
d. Please make sure to use proper grammar and punctuation
e. List your resources (where you found information and that will be used for data collection)
#ECON Project (four day bank holiday)
The Econ History Paper project will allow you to identify and apply economics in practice. Specifically, you will be required to:
1. Research your chosen topic (list provided)
2. Identify your topics opportunities and/or challenges through an economic lens by citing what you have learned in class and microeconomic/macroeconomic concepts
3. Make recommendations for what can be learned from the historical context and applications to today
The paper project has a number of deliverables.
• Submit Project Topic and Justification
• Submit Project Update Outline
• Submit Project Tools of Analysis
• Submit Project Rough Draft
• Submit Final Project Posted Online & Presentations
You will find a topic of interest to you from the provided list. Find articles that demonstrate how the historical context is valuable but also find the economic implications.
For example, Southwest Airlines has a traditionally different business model that could be looked at historically. A quick Google search on “business strategy of Southwest airlines” reveals the following: http://www.investopedia.com/articles/markets/072215/southwest-airlines-business-model-could-soon-be-industry-standard.asp
You will likely notice competitive advantage, differentiation, incentives, etc. as areas relevant to strategy and history that you could use to start building your paper project.
Then walk through your research to identify the economic tools of analysis. Critically examine how you see microeconomic and macroeconomics unfolding in your chosen organization and how you think understanding the history will allow for better outcomes in the future.
