DescriptionGlobalisation, corporate social responsibility, regulation and enterprise in corporations
During this TMA I have struggled with trying to compare the case studies and relate them to the questions being asked by the TMA. I did try and raise the issues I was having with the TGF which only returned modest feedback. I fear I may have completely gone down the wrong track with my analysis of the material during Block 3.

They appear to be naïve to the ways of the world and this has played into the hands of its trading partnerships. In theory the local government has quite a problem on its hands juggling its responsibility to provide the best opportunities and standards of living, regulating to ensure non-exploitation whilst still encouraging enterprise .
Whilst reading through weeks 26 the case study on ‘GAP’ stuck a cord, clearly GAP was trying to be ethical by adopting a strong corporate social responsibility. But I understood the business decisions it had to make to satisfy its shareholders conflicted with this policy.
