Workaround Instructions for the Second Half of the Semester: Chapter Seven (7) The process for the second key terms written assignment will be different. This time we will ask you to submit your work to Ilearn. You will only be required to write your answers in a Word.doc and submit them to us electronically. To assure that your work is your own, we will use a program which will check for copying (plagiarism) so do make sure that your answers are your own (do not copy, paraphrase). Here is the recommended process for the second assignment: 1. Read the key terms in your workbook 2. Download the workaround files to your computer. 3. Find their descriptions in the workbook and perhaps in the textbook 4. If you wish, at this point you may work in groups to discuss the terms. Share ideas to get a better feel for what the terms mean. 5. At the next point, you should work alone to write your answers. Paraphrase what you have read. This means you should type in your own words what you have learned. Type them directly into a Word.doc file. Review your definitions; work with them until you are comfortable with your answers. Keep in mind, we are not asking for and we do not want quotations; we want you to write definitions in your own words. Give examples where appropriate. 6. Spell and grammar check them in Word. Make sure and save your file somewhere (losing the file will result in a zero score). 7. Complete the process with each assigned chapter. Do not wait until the end of the semester. 8. Review them one last time before taking the quiz for each chapter. Sometimes critical reasoning questions in the quizzes are based on key terms. Other times, regular questions on the quizzes come from key terms. 9. Instructions on when and how to submit the documents to Ilearn will be given at a later date. When indicated, submit the documents. 10. Key terms for chapter seven are on the following page. 11. Limit your answers to A half-page maximum each, 12 point Times New Roman Font.

The key terms for chapter seven on FDI are: 7a. Foreign Direct Investment Because of the market imperfection, the MNE decide either to get the physical assets or an amount of ownership of a company in the host country or the entire VAC. For example, a foreign company makes their own VAC in the host country, so they can avoid their quota, and they can get their market share in the host country without losing it. 7b. Horizontal Foreign Direct Investment It means the company either buys or set up the VAC in the host country. For example, if a company wants to set up a horizontal FDI, it will have to get the raw material in the host country, and then collect the intermediate components, and finally, it will have the downstream out put ready.

7c. Vertical Direct Investment It means that a company only purchases part of the VAC in the host country. For example, the company can chose one section from the upstream input, intermediate components, or the downstream output of the VAC in the host country. 7d.
