Assignment 1: Discussion—Analyzing Emerging Markets
Emerging markets are complex, but can be analyzed and understood by defining a best practices checklist that could easily be overlaid on any country considered an emerging market. Therefore, as you review the readings and additional resources for this week, write down the main ideas that continue to appear and begin to incorporate these ideas in a best practices list.
From the module readings and your understanding of emerging markets, provide an overview of the critical components, such as a country’s GDP, needed to properly analyze an emerging market. Then, answer the following:
Why did you select the specific components you did?
Is there a “best practices checklist” that can be created for analyzing emerging markets?
Is it possible to use a “best practices checklist” as a guideline for analyzing all emerging markets? Why or why not?
Write your initial response in a minimum of 200–300 words. Apply APA standards to the citation of sources.
By Week 3, Day 3, post your responses to the appropriate Discussion Area.Through Week 3, Day 7, comment on at least two of your peers’ responses.
Do the following when responding to your peers:
Read all posts from your peers.
Respond to feedback on your post and provide feedback to other students on their ideas.
Provide substantive comments by contributing new, relevant information or quotes from course readings, academic and trade journals, company Web sites, or other sources; building on the remarks or questions of others; or sharing practical examples of key concepts from your experiences, professional or personal.
Make sure your writing is clear, concise, and organized; demonstrates ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and displays accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
