In your readings this week, you examined the potential benefits, costs, and risks of doing business in a country as a function of its political, economic, and legal systems. The balance between costs and risks often determines the appeal of a country as a market and/or investment site.
To prepare for this Discussion, research the key economic, legal, and political factors for a country other than the one in which you live and/or work and share them with your colleagues.
*Share your findings about the key economic, legal, and political factors for the country you selected. Include in your response issues, such as property rights, expropriations, taxes, labor policies, income distribution, education levels, balance of trade, and employment statistics.
*How do these country-specific factors influence business operations of multinationals in that country?
*What are the investment risks for foreign companies doing business there?
