QUESTION 2: Who are the winners and who are the losers from the tariffs imposed in 2018 by Donald Trump on imported steel? QUESTION 3: Consider the long-term implications of policies like the one imposed by Donald Trump on imported steel. What does it mean for the future competitiveness of companies that rely on imported steel? What does it mean for employees in those companies and for consumers? CLOSING CASE: The United States and South Korea Strike a Revised Trade Deal QUESTION 1: Why do you think the Obama Administration pursued a trade deal with Korea in 2012? What were the potential economic and political benefits? What were the potential costs? QUESTION 2: Is there any evidence that the 2012 free trade deal between the United States and South Korea was a “job killer” as claimed by President Trump?

OPENING CASE: Starbucks’ Foreign Direct Investment QUESTION 1: Why did Starbucks enter Japan and China via a joint venture rather than as wholly owned subsidiaries? What are the benefits of this approach? Do you see any drawbacks? QUESTION 2: How did Starbucks ensure that its model was successfully transferred to Japan? Why was this important to the company? QUESTION 3: Why did Starbucks change its strategy in China and Japan from a joint venture format to a wholly owned subsidiary model? What is the company hoping to achieve with this change? CLOSING CASE: Geely Goes Global QUESTION 1: Why did Geely acquire Volvo? What are the benefits of acquisition? What are the potential costs and risks?

QUESTION 4: What are the benefits of Geely’s investment in South Carolina to the U.S. economy? What are the potential costs? Do you think it was in the interests of the United States to let this investment proceed? Please use your own words when completing the homework assignments. You must write in organized paragraphs with complete sentences. Do not use bullet points. Do use direct quotes. Do not upload any files/links. Please copy and paste your answers into the text/submission area. Please do not rewrite case information in the textbook to avoid a high similarity score from Turnitin. It is best to paraphrase case material in your writing. Turnitin on Canvas will be used to check for plagiarism. Please refer to the Turnitin policy below. Minimum Word Requirements: You need to write at least 200 words per each case (not 200 words per question of each case), with a minimum of 800 words in total. Please include the word count at the top of your homework. This does not count homework questions. I require minimum word counts to give students an idea of how much work is expected. Otherwise, students may do much less than they need to do in order to develop their critical and analytical thinking skills. Turnitin Policy: No points will be given for any course assignments that show more than 30% similarity from Turnitin on Canvas. To avoid a high similarity index, please delete the assignment questions before submitting your assignment. Resubmit your assignments before the due date if your submission has a high score.
