BBB4M Final Assignment (COVID) 2020
Six months ago, covid-19 had just begun to change our lives in ways we could only have imagined at the start of 2020. The loss of life has been devastating. The impact on our lives and economy, staggering. Borders closed, global trade slowed to a crawl, many businesses have had to close their doors (some, very unfortunately, for good). As we emerge from this COVID-19 pandemic one thing is for sure – our world cannot go back to “normal”. It just isn’t working, isn’t right, and it isn’t sustainable. It is, however, encouraging to witness the response that Canada and nearly every country has had to this crisis – people everywhere have come together and risen to all the challenges and troubles that have surfaced. So now that we’ve proven just exactly what we can accomplish when change comes, let’s think about how we could change the world for the better if we apply this mindset to our ongoing global problems.
This is a crucial moment for our future – now is the time to rebuild. Our life has pivoted, it is shifting, and perhaps this whole crisis, in a way, is an unprecedented opportunity to consider hitting the reset button on so much of what we do in our societies and how we do it. Let’s face it, much of society and the global economy are based on industries and practices that are unsustainable. We are in a human and planetary crisis that needs immediate attention. We cannot respond to this crisis using the same market logistics that got us into this mess. Business (international business) can be and needs to be the solution – we need radical change. How can we revise our practices? How can we improve how we do business? How can we change how things are done for the better; how we get our energy? how we live on a day-to-day basis? how we consume? how we recycle? where and how we make our food and products? how international trade should take place? how globalization should proceed? how the world economy should operate for the better of mankind and the planet we call home?
“The real question is not whether the virus is “good” or “bad” for climate, or whether rich people will take fewer airplane flights, but whether we can create a functioning economy that supports people without threatening life on Earth, including our own.” – Meehan Crist
Considerations: Some important concepts we have discussed in this course that you can think about and relate to – research some of the new roles these topics may now play:
globalization & free trade – and their impacts on people, resources, and the environment (unit1)
degrowth (rethinking GDP) & wellbeing economy (unit1)
the 100km diet and the issues with our unsustainable global food industries and systems (unit1)
outsourcing and its rules, rationalization (unit2)
how world organizations work and help (unit2)
the role of big corps and big countries (unit3)
Canadian corps (unit3) and supporting local economies
Corporate Social responsibility & Consumer Social Responsibility (unit3)
“But the truth is that right now, much of the global economy is based on industries and practices that are unsustainable. The transition to cleaner, safer, healthier, and more sustainable ways of living will require massive changes in employment and lifestyle for billions of people. If new innovation emerges that can solve problems and improve the living conditions on our planet, then shouldn’t it be one measure of a healthy society that we find a way to incorporate it…?” -Ocean Robbins

So…how will you be part of these solutions that you have come up with? Be specific. Be a part of the solution!
State your main idea(s)/thought(s)/vision(s) about how you think international business, society, economies, lifestyles, logistics, and the global market (as discussed above) should change and proceed for the sustainability and health of both people and the planet. For each idea you must explain what specifically needs to be done, why you think this needs to happen, as well as how it could be facilitated (try to use / tie in terms, content, and concepts from the course).
Find a minimum of one article that supports each idea and/or discusses the issue (3 articles total, one for each idea). For each article provide a brief summary, as well as your thoughts & justifications. Don’t forget to include your sources using MLA format! Remember that international business is the key approach here.
Pose a thoughtful question pertaining to your topic/idea/thought/vision.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
