Assignment 5. MS6014

Assignment 1: LASA 2—Risk Management Applications
While there are many factors that lead to an organization’s success  or failure, it is important to identify the risk associated with the  endeavor—financial or nonfinancial. Once the risks have been identified,  management has a responsibility to develop measures to mitigate those  risks.
Use the publicly-traded company you chose in Module 1  and imagine it has made a strategic decision to start doing business in  China. Using the discussion, Currency Exchange Rates: A Case in China  with Country Risk, (Chapter 7, Global Finance, page 192 of your textbook) as a model for the report you will write, prepare a report in which you:

Develop a brief country risk assessment.
Determine the political, economic, social, and capital risks  associated with doing business in China. What are the most important  factors to consider? Why?
After years of keeping the Yuan pegged to the US dollar, in 2015 the  Chinese  allowed it to float freely in international currency exchange  rate markets. You may read more about the Yuan reforms  here. Many economists believe that keeping the Yuan pegged to the US  dollar has caused it to be undervalued by 30 to 50 percent. Discuss what  impact a revaluation of the Yuan might have on US multinationals doing  business there, on China’s exports, and on Chinese citizens’ standard of  living. What impact would a revaluation have on Chinese inflation and  on purchasing power parity? Explain.

Your paper should be about 2,000 words.
