International Finance and Political Risk
This discussion helps you develop the skills to master the following course competencies:
- Apply the theories, models, and practices of finance to the financial management of the firm.
- Evaluate alternative methods of financing a firm in diverse economic environments.
Choose a country (not the United States or Canada) that has not already been chosen by another learner and post your country choice in the discussion area. Then, analyze some of the political and currency risks of that country and discuss why a U.S. company would invest (for example, build a factory) in that country. If you were in a decision-making position, what are the three for four specific factors that you would take into consideration?
Post a substantive initial post no later than Thursday. Support your post with the theories presented in the reading.
