The credit crisis Comment this section

The crisis we are living has become a very serious problem, not only nationally but globally. It is a fact that affects all statments of life and all economics sectors. The Spanish crisis appeared in 2008 in US. Everything was caused by the housing bubble. The housing bubble it is a problem which is supply is greater thand demand. It had a especulation, the banks gave a loans to main street and real-estate, the problem appeared when the people couldn't return the money of the loans and the real-estate saw that they couldn't return the money, too. The banks granted the loans without contemplating whether they could return the money. So, much money was spent on buildings which then not sold. All becomes with the subprime mortgages in US. Nowadays, part of the crisis caused by the housing bubble there are many delays and much financial fraud. Now the banks do not give loans to main street because they think that the money not be returned. But they give loans to big business, because these return they the money. All it is a wheel if first can't pay the wheel breaks. Some of the effects of the housing bubble are: indebtedness, much money was spent on the construction sector and other sectors not, the main street have a crisis and increase in production costs. For this a lot of economic sectors have a big financial problem and much of this are closing. The small business (PYMES) are most affected about the crisis, families have a lot of problems to pay anything. They have problems to buy cloths, food… Much money was given to the construction sector and other sectors not and nowadays this others sectors are affected. The guilty for the crisis were politicians, banks and builders. This crisis was considered the most provided crisis of the history.

From my point of view this crisis affects all sectors directly or indirectly. All families, middle class, are suffering. To end it would have to change all the politicians and Banks. They are the blame for this situation.

With video and these classes I learned more about the current situation.

The credit crisis II Comment this subsection

The crisis we are living has become a very serious problem, not only nationally but also globally. It is a fact that affects all levels of life and all economics sectors. The Spanish crisis appeared in 2008 in US. Everything was caused by the housing bubble, it is normally called the household bubble or the real state bubble. The housing bubble it was created when there was more demand than supple. It caused situaction to emerge, the banks gave cheap and risky loans to main street and real-estate agents, and the problem appeared when the people couldn't return the money of the loans and the real-estate saw that they couldn't return the money too. The banks granted the loans without contemplating whether they could return money. So, much money was spent on buildings, which then could not be sold. All started out with the subprime mortgages in the US. Nowadays, there are a lot of financial fraud too. Now the banks do not give cheap loans because they think that the money will not be returned. But they give loans to big business, because these entities are able to retunr the money. Some of the effects of the housing bubble are: indebtedness, much money was spent on the construction sector and other sectors not, the main street suffered from the crisis and it caused an increase in their production costs. For this reason a lot of economic sectors have a big financial problem and much of them are closing. The small business SMEs are the most affected by the crisis, families are having a lot of problems to pay everything. They have problems to buy cloths, food... Much money was given to the construction sector and other sectors not and nowadays these secotrs are affected. The politicians, banks and builders are the ones to be blamed as the creators of the crisis. This crisis was considered the most important crisis of the history.

From my point of view this crisis affects all sectors directly or indirectly. All families, middle class, are suffering. To put an and to it, we would have to change all the politicians and the way the Banks work. They are the responsible for this situation.

With the video and these classes I learned more about the current situation.

In the case of company B in 2012 achieved a profit of 95.600€ and in 2011 of 152.000€. As we can see both companies profit increase more the first year. In company A sales are greater in 2014 than in 2013 have declined 69.980€, whereas in company B have increased. In company A the gross profit is the same in both years, in return company B gross profit is lower in 2012, with a difference of 32.000€. Setting expenses, administrative expenses and other net operating income in the company A have the same value during the two years. That means that as in 2013 the costs gave a good profit it has not changed. But in the end the profit for the period has declined greatly, with a difference of 290.103€, this assumes a big loss for the company, although the profit was positive. In the company B the expenditures have changed from one year to another, the selling expenses in 2011 were from 65.000€ and in 2012 were from 85.800€, the expenditures have increased, both selling expenses and administrative expenses. In the company A the Operating profit (BAII) has been regular (two years are the same), we can also see that we found only finance costs and non-finance income. We found a profit before taxation (BAI) of 7.378€ in both years, and being positive is removed the taxation charge. In 2014 the taxation charge is 4.250€ while the taxation charge last year was 5.000€. Therefore the profit for the period which is achieved in company A in 2013 is 290.103€ and in 2014 is 2.369€. In the Company B we found a operating profit which have plummet in the second year after add the other incomes we found a profit before taxation which have a big difference in both years, we add it the taxation charge. In 2011 the taxation charge increase of 8.000€ while in 2012 increase of 9.200€. Finally the profit for the period of company B plummet 56.400€ in 2012 relative to 2011.

Dilemma: Going offshore Comment this section

We choose China like the best country for outsourcing. Because China it's the future and the people speaks a lot of languages.

From my point of view, speak a lot of idioms are very important for increase. Chine in the world rank have a good position compared with India or Philippines. The operating costs are so important for outsourcing a company or not. For this, we choose China because it have a lower operating costs than Canada, and the workforce is cheap. On the other hand, living in China it's expensive but the GP per head it's high. For this, if people have good GP per head, they can affor the expenses.

In conclusion we believe that China it's the best country for outsourcing so our costs are lower.

Risks Comment this section

We have done a meeting with all directors of the company for discus some aspects fof the risks of our company in Africa and we arrive a some conclusions.

First of all, the financial directors want to invest more money in machinery because the machinery which have in Africa it's really poor. We could have a jointventure or something else.

Then, the healty director said that our company have a lot of bad emissions and this it's a big problem for us.

Other problem is that the economics risks because the company isn't stable all time. Because sometimes the profits go up but sometimes the profits go down. We need to find equality.

In the aspect of the explotation risks we have a big problem. Although Africa is rich in copper, basalt, coltan, etc. There is a problem, we aren't sure that the desposits will  be profitable.

And finally the director of security said that Africa is not a safe country, because allways have robers. For this we need alarms for prevent this situations.

Speed-dating recruiment event Comment this section

Today I had different interviews to get a job. I had four interviews.

The first interview which I had has been with the Sr. Caldú. He offered me work in the marketing department. I like this job, because I really like this department. But the salary it's very poor, 1.700€/month and I want to earn more money.

Then I had an interview with Miss Judit. This job consists of the finance department. The company offered me 1.200€/month and mobilephone business but I think that the salary it's very poor, again.

After I had the best interview that I have today. I have been interviewed by Pol Serra who works in the Nasa company. He offered me 60.000€/year but if the company profits increase would charge more. If I chose this work my schedule would be perfect, I will work from Monday to Friday until six o'clock PM in Mart. Transport is paid by them.

And finally I had a interview with Diego de Muller. He is a scammer and he want to exploit his workers. He offered me 1.000€/month or 500€/ month if I work from Monday to Sunday until eleven o'clock PM. I reject this offer.

Finally I chose the second work. I want to work in Nasa because I really like the department and all working conditions that offered me.

Meeting Comment this section

His name is Kazuo and he is manager. Currently he is working at the Business Support Unit. My candidate it's thes best for this position because he is hard-worker, he is democratic and also a loyal person. The democracy it's a very important thing to work well, for this reason he likes to involve his employees in the decision-making and he avoid discusions all time. Although he is focused on results and for this reason he set always goals. He likes to work in group because he says that it's more important and efficient than work individually. He won't let the company go down. For Kazuo the priority is the motivation of his employees and he promote the multicultural relationships.
