Chapter three

The role of economy

  • Marketers need to operate within the constraints of this environment, and in the case of international marketing there will be more than one environment constraining the company at any one time.

  • Most of the firms environments have to be taken as they are and cannot be controlled, yet they have profound consequences for marketing management. Thus procedures are needed for the speedy identification of fresh market opportunities resulting from environmental change

  • A two-step procedure for scanning environments and coping with environmental change is necessary.

  • 1. the firm should predict the external changes that might occur and then detail: how the organization would be affected by them and how it should respond.

  • 2. it should list the businesss major functions, followed by an outline of all environmental factors likely to affect these functions. Unfortunately there is a huge number of external variables that might affect a firms operations, creating the danger that some important variables may be overlooked.

  • Very large companies might attempt to influence the governments and institutions that help determine environments in the first place. Lobbying of governments, the media international organizations, etc, can occur via trade associations, chambers of commerce, industry trade missions to foreign countries and similar organizations.

  • 3.1 world economy overview

  • Revolutionary changes: contrary to much of the received doctrine of economic theory

  • The first change: increased volume of capital movements. Capital movements rather than trade have become the driving force of the world economy. Today, it is capital movements and trade that determine currency value

  • The second change: employment in manufacturing--- remains steady or has declined, production---continues to grow

  • The third change: uncoupling primary products economy from the industrial economy

  • The fourth change: the emergence of the world economy as the dominant economic unit. The world economy is in control. The macroeconomics of the nation-state no longer control economic outcomes
