Investing overseas can help a firm protect its domestic market in three different ways. The first is to establish foreign operations in countries where the firm has major clients (Ball et al. Hope Solo USA Jersey , 61, 2006). For example, if a U.S. firm has many customers in France, establishing subsidiaries in France to service those customers will prevent competition by similar firms in France from acquiring those customers.

This strengthens the U.S. firm because they now have the opportunity to prove that they can service customers in France as well. This strategy is not very risky because the domestic firm already has customers in the foreign country. Rather than attacking the foreign market, the domestic firm is just defending itself from foreign competitors.

The second way a firm can protect its domestic market by investing overseas is to attack the foreign market in the hopes that the foreign firm will be so focused on defending its local market that it will lessen its efforts to gain customers in the domestic firm's market (Dell et al., 61 Emily Sonnett USA Jersey , 2006).

For example, if Domestic Firm A sells a similar product or service as Foreign Firm B, DFA can begin operations in FFB's country in the hopes of taking away some of FFB's customers, and causing FFB to focus on keeping its own share of its domestic market. While FFB is being attacked in its own country, DFA can work on gaining more of its own domestic market away from FFB.

This technique is really one of deceptive distraction and is much riskier than the previous example because in this scenario the domestic firm must spend some resources "distracting" the foreign firm, and some resources on gaining a larger portion of its domestic market. Both of these tactics must be done at once if the plan is to succeed.

The final reason that investing overseas can strengthen a firm's domestic market has to do with costs of production. If a foreign firm can produce the same product at a lower cost than a domestic firm Crystal Dunn USA Jersey , and sell that product at a lower price (by exporting it) in the domestic country, then the domestic firm is at a disadvantage.

One way to become more competitive is to outsource part or all of a firm's production to the "cheaper" foreign country and continue to resell the product in the domestic firm's country (Ball et al., 61, 2006). Outsourcing allows the domestic firm to utilize the lower production costs in the foreign country while remaining competitive in its domestic market. This strategy is also not very risky because it is lowering the firm's costs while defending its domestic market against foreign competition. Rather than spending more of its resources, the aim of this technique is to reduce costs and gain resources.

Although considered controversial, outsourcing continues to be a necessary part of staying competitive in today's globalized world. Two leading countries in the market for less expensive Christen Press USA Jersey , quality labor are China and India. However, less expensive labor is not the only characteristic firms are looking for when deciding where to outsource services or production. "Deep technical and language skills, mature vendors and supportive government policies" (BusinessWeek Online, March 20, 2007) are also key factors, all of which can be found in India. For countries like the United States Casey Short USA Jersey , where wages are high, utilizing the people and skills found in other countries and expanding to become an international firm is quickly becoming a requirement rather than a choice.

President Obama is the new Cary Grant

Just think about it. President Obama is the new Cary Grant. He?s cool, calm, collected, smart, funny, handsome Becky Sauerbrunn USA Jersey , eloquent and well spoken. I wrote this on September 12 and yesterday Stephen Colbert called him ?the Meryl Streep of presidents.? So that means he can nail things in one take.

The similarities with Cary Grant don?t end there. Cary Grant was the ultimate in sexy sophistication. He dressed great, was athletic, and had a great smile. He defined ?Metro sexual? (before that term was invented) with his impeccable grooming and charm. On the silver screen, Cary Grant moved gracefully and knew his audience. He made everything look easy and natural.

He was the perfect man ? onscreen. You wanted to watch him and hear that great voice ? words just melted on his tongue. Both women and men loved Cary Grant, and according to a 2008 poll, people still consider Cary Grant (who died in 1986) to be the most popular actor of all time. He moved across all socio economic Alyssa Naeher USA Jersey , political and cultural lines ? everyone loved him ? men, women, minorities, young, old, rich and poor. Barack Obama is the first person to even come close as far as politicians are concerns. And Allie Long USA Jersey , actors ? forget it ? even though I love George Clooney ? he is no Cary Grant!

Cary Grant?s career was a testament to Old Hollywood; he knew what he was good at. He did comedy, drama, satire and Alfred Hitchcock movies! President Obama inhabits all of those roles today and not always by choice. He also knows what he is good at and never strays from his convictions.

I have seen most, if not all of Cary Grant?s movies. For those of you who share my Cary Grant obsession stay with me here. Can you imagine President Obama playing these Cary Grant characters: The bachelor in the ?Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer,? a guy w.
