  • Purpose - This article aims to analyze individual attitudes toward the impact of multinational enterprises (MNEs) on local businesses. These individual attitudes are important in understanding voters' preferences, which studies show to affect governmental policies. MNEs' market entry location decisions are conditioned by the host's political environment. Moreover, MNEs' attempts to attain legitimacy in their host contexts ultimately affect their bottom line, so how the public perceive MNEs matters. Design/methodology/approach - Using a large-scale data set, the paper carefully delineates between a set of potential mechanisms influencing individual attitudes to globalization in the context of individuals' attitudes toward the impact of MNEs on local businesses. Findings - The article dem...

  • In 1999, the Bureau of the Census documented approximately 35,125 businesses in the 58-county region of southeast Georgia.

This transformation process is called the company's "operations". However, a review of business degrees granted within the state of Georgia reveals that few degree programs exist to produce operations managers and that only a small handful of graduates emerge from those programs each year. The preliminary fact-finding that motivated the research showed that Georgia's public universities are producing very few operations management graduates. Although a majority of the respondents re...

  • Consider also Iraq, where insurgents and other extremists used networked technologies to their advantage by sharing lessons learned in real-time, thereby rendering attacks on the U.S. and allied forces more deadly. 6 Likewise, as noted by the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, "computer network operations have become fundamental to the PLA's strategic campaign goals for seizing information dominance early" in a military conflict. 7 The Internet also reinforces and exponentially magnifies one of the hallmarks of terrorism namely, that it is a small numbers business in which the few can cause a degree of harm that is well out of F proportion V to the size of the attacking group.

  • South Charlestons Public Works crews can do anything, their director said. That includes building houses. With one already constructed and sold, they are working on a second in the Tremont Street area near the Montrose exit of Interstate 64. The 2,500- square-foot house should be completed within the next several months. Because the city is using its own labor, construction costs can be kept down. But that doesnt mean the quality of the work suffers, Public Works Director Gerald Burgy said. We build everything to above code, he said Friday as he stood next to the foundation of the second home. We dont skimp on anything. The center support of the home is a steel beam, and construction crews also poured concrete into the foundation blocks to ensure there will be no cracks from a settling ...
