3 As noted in the Overview above, do NOT merely list and answer the questions at the end of the case. You are to use a free-flowing style to summarize your thoughts after your research on
the issues discussed in the case.
1. Outline why the culture of a country might influence the costs of doing business in that country. Illustrate your answer with examples.
2. Do you think that business practices in an Islamic country are likely to differ from business practices in a Christian country? If so, how?
3. What are the implications for international business of differences in the dominant religion or ethical system of a country?
4. Choose two countries that appear to be culturally diverse. Compare the cultures of those countries, and then indicate how cultural differences influence (a) the costs of doing business in each
country, (b) the likely future economic development of that country, and (c) business practices.
5. Reread the Country Focus about Islamic capitalism in Turkey. Then answer the following questions: a. Can you see anything in the values and norms of Islam that is hostile to business?
b. What does the experience of the region around Kayseri teach about the relationship between Islam and business?
c. What are the implications of Islamic values to- ward business for the participation of a country such as Turkey in the global economy or be- coming a member of the European Union?
6. Reread the Management Focus on DMG- Shanghai and answer the follow questions:
a. Why do you think it is so important to cultivate guanxi and guanxiwang in China? b. What does the experience of DMG tells us about the way things work in China? What would likely happen to a
business that obeyed all the rules and regulations, rather than trying to find a way around them as Dan Mintz apparently does?
c. What ethical issues might arise when drawing on guanxiwang to get things done in China? What does this suggest about the limits of using guanxiwang for a Western business committed to high
