Though the Allied powers won a hard fought victory over the Axis, they could not, among themselves, decide what the post-war era should be like. Differences in ideas for conditions after the war, such as spheres of influence for world powers or how to control armament in militant countries, led to disagreements between the major allies in the Grand Alliance, which included the United States, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union. Britain and the US were seen by the Soviets as being Western powers who had not been historically friendly with Russia, and could be potentially aggressive towards the East. For this reason, the USSR aimed to secure buffer zones and important locations and resources in Eastern Europe as preventative measures. The Western powers, mainly America, feared the Soviet Union was becoming too strong and could potentially be a threat if alliances were broken. At different conferences held by the Big Three powers, many plans were made, both militarily and politically, which affected the outcome of the war. At these conferences, the arguments between the US and the USSR shaped the conditions for the years to come. The Soviet Union feared possible future aggression from the West. At the beginning of the war, the Soviets were on the side of Nazi Germany due to their non-aggression pact. Because of their past allegiance with the enemy, the other main Allied Powers trusted them only grudgingly. Relations between the countries were not good, and Stalin feared that this could be cause for future enmity and conflict. To prevent Russia from once again becoming a weak, disorganized power, Stain took advantage of his country’s key role in the war to become a strong, powerful nation. From the war, due to an offensive strategy that called for the Soviets to capture and secure eastern Europe, the USSR was able to expand its borders considerably, gaining key…...

Gather information that measures recent performance within the organization ii. Compare present performance to pre-established performance standards. iii.

The fourth function, controlling, involves possible modification to existing plans, organizational structure, or the motivation system used to develop a more successful effort. ...

Chapter 4 Essay

...Week 4 Short Essay 1- 2 Supervision Concepts and Skill – Building Part 1. The first principle in the principle of organizing it parity principle. The parity principle states that personnel who are given responsibility must also be given enough authority to carry out that responsibility. (Certo, 2013). An example of parity principle is if I hired a contractor to build a house and I was the one picking the material and hiring workers for the job. When giving the task of building the home to the contractor, he accepts the responsibility for completing the task. The contractor also had the authority to hire his labors. By hiring the contractor I am giving the contractor the full authority and responsibility to build the house. The second principle is the unity of command. The unity of command principle states that each employee should have only one supervisor. An example of this would happen it there was a organization that has different departments with two different supervisors. If the one supervisor from say the sales department, interferes or tries to direct a employee from a different department other than sales department. By having unity of command, there is no such chance of employees receiving orders from several supervisors which would avoid confusion and aggravation. Chain of command is the flow of authority in an organization from one level of management to the next. (Certo, 2013). A great example is the structure of the U.S. military. With...

Myth Symbol Ritual Chapter 1 Essay

...Chapter 1 Study Questions for Myth Symbol and Ritual Dakota 1) Symbols are the building blocks for life. They help us in life to communicate, learn, classify, bring out emotions, associate. The word Myth is actually Greek for throw together. They help us perceive. The relationship between signifier, signified, and signification is not all the complex. The signifier is what we perceive. An example is that different symbols can be perceived by different ways by different people. If someone were to look at an arrow and perceive it one way, i might look at the arrow and perceive it another. The signified is what we give to the perception. This can obviously be different with different people because it relies on ourselves. The signification is what ties these different perceptions together. Specific characteristics of a sign is that they have single meanings (an example would be a street sign giving the name of a street). A specific example of a signal is that they convey a meaning for an action. An example is a street light. When the green light is lit it gives someone the signal to go. Vice versa when the red light illuminates. A symbol is used to convey meaning. This would be a sign on the road that has the squiggly lines. It is conveying to drivers that the road is going to become winding. An example of a discursive symbol would be a symbol that is discrete and must be seen in a certain arrangement for one to understand. A presentational symbol must be......

Chapter 7 Essay

...Chapter 7 Government Intervention in International Business GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION 1. In a short essay, describe two methods of government intervention. What is the purpose of government intervention in international business? Answer Government intervention is often manifested as protectionism. Protectionism refers to national economic policies designed to restrict free trade and protect domestic industries from foreign competition. Protectionism often leads to two types of intervention: tariffs and nontariff barriers. A tariff is a tax imposed by government on imported products, effectively increasing cost of acquisition for the customer. A nontariff trade barrier, such as a quota, is a government policy, regulation, or procedure that impedes trade through means other than explicit tariffs. Governments intervene in trade and investment to achieve political, social, or economic objectives. Barriers are often applied to benefit specific interest groups, such as domestic firms, industries, and labor unions. A key rationale is to create jobs by protecting industries from foreign competition. Governments may also intervene to support home-grown industries or firms. In various ways, government intervention alters the competitive positions of companies and industries, and the status of citizens.

Chapter 6 Essay Question Ron and Lois

...Chapter 6 Essay Question In the case of Ron and Lois, they are both department managers with Litwins department store. Lois is the manager of housewares department and Don is the manager of the shoe department. Ron has observed Lois taking inventory from her own department home, apparently without paying for it. He hesitates confronting Lois because he is due to be promoted, and needs Lois' recommendation. He also does not want to notify the company management directly, because he doesn't want an ethics investigation on his record, believing that it will give him a “goody-goody” image. This week, Lois tried on several pairs of expensive running shoes in his department before finding a pair that suited her. She did not, however, buy them. That very pair was missing this morning. Part one In the business world, you will sometimes be called on to weigh the ethics of decisions that can affect not just your own future but possibly the futures of your fellow workers, your company and its customers. It’s not always easy to distinguish between what is right and wrong in many situations. (Boone & Kurtz, 2011) In part one of this paper, I will define ethics and look at how ethics played a role in management as well as provide solutions. In this case Ron has an ethical dilemma, if he says something about what he has observed, Lois may not recommend him for the promotion and if he does not say anything about what he has seen, he may be fired if and when Lois gets caught. Ethics......
