...within both the offeror and offeree. For this situation, the offer was placed by David who is the offeror, as he wrote to Philip who is offeree. The words, “I agree to work as your sales assistant on weekends during 2008, for which you will pay me $10,000 at the end of 2008 so I can travel to Vietnam”. This statement not only proves that it is an offer, but also shows the intension of a domestic agreement between brothers to create a legal bound, as in the case Merritt v Merritt[10]. Since the contract is intended by both parties to be legally bind, there are consideration for the $15,000 claimed, which is to pay $10,000 in response to David’s promise to work as a sales at weekends, and pay an extra $5,000 for David’s hard work. It is a good consideration. In addition, the contract was present as Philip signed the document which showed that he will pay David $10,000 for his work previously. At the same time, the signature is strong evidence that Philip has similarly agreed to the contract, as in the case of Yekey v Jone[11], the party was legally bound into an agreement with their signature. After while, Philip has agreed to pay extra $5,000 for David’s hard work but it is not included in the original condition. In addition, it is only orally agreement. It is hard to distinguish the preciseness. In conclude, Philip is necessary to pursue the terms in the contract, according to L’Estrange v Grauco.[12] Nevertheless, an oral statement outside the written contractual......

...Financial turnaround of the Indian Railways: Good Luck or Good Management? Abstract We analyse the factors that led to the turnaround of the Indian Railways from a low performing organisation to a high performing one. Literature on public sector turnaround provides the theoretical underpinnings. Enterprise turnaround is often ascribed to managerial leadership; we found that environmental factors (good luck) contributed in a substantial way to the success of Indian Railways. The implication of our study is that an organisation’s turnaround success needs to be put in a wider context. D. Gupta & M. Sathye Financial Turnaround of the Indian Railways ASARC WP 2007/13 3 On 15 April 2006, the Washington Times carried a lead story on the turnaround of the Indian Railways (IR) — a departmental organisation run by the Government of India (GOI). It stated ‘…few now doubt that Mr. Yadav (Minister for Railways) has presided over an impressive business turnaround ….more importantly, he’s taken the world’s largest employer — a government giant of 1.5 million employees — and boosted revenues by 15.5 percent without raising fares’ (Nelson, 2006:1). Pai Panandiker states ‘Indian Railways has turned around and made an estimated profit of $2.5 billion in 2005-2006. What is important, however, is that, unlike previous ministers, Mr. Yadav has looked upon Railways as a commercial enterprise and not a social welfare institution. [He] is a hard taskmaster and will ensure his......

...work accomplished. It is useful to discuss why some seemingly uncontrollable indirect costs are allocated to departments (see Exhibit 3). These allocations are mandated by Toyota, so that they can compare dealership departments on a common basis that treats each department more or less as a standalone business. Allocating the costs also gives the department managers information as to what services are being provided for them, and it gives them some power to complain if the size of the allocations becomes too high. This issue can lead into a discussion of the differences between authority and responsibility (accountability). Generally, managers are held accountable for results in areas where they have authority. But here, the general sales manager’s bonuses are based on performance measured in terms of profit after overhead allocations (line 59 in Exhibit 3). This is an example of a situation where this manager is held accountable for areas over which he has less than full authority. Conversely, the service manager’s bonuses are based on the department’s gross profit performance, which is before allocations. It is apparent in the case that some of the measures can be gamed. Puente Hills Toyota managers worry about the gaming in the service area, and they seem to have adequate controls over these behaviors. The Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) measure is also gamed. But here the managers seem to encourage the gaming because it makes the dealership look better to......

...Indian Railways – A monopoly Abstract In economics, monopoly (from Greek monos (alone or single) + polein (to sell)) exists when delivery of a particular product or service is completely controlled by an individual or an enterprise. This is in contrast to monopsony where there is only one buyer of a particular product or service; however there can be more than one provider. It is also different from cartel (a form of oligopoly) wherein several providers establish an institution and coordinate their actions and services. Indian Railways is the state-owned railway company of India having more than 64000 Kilometers of track and 6909 stations. It has the world’s 4th largest railway network after that of United States, Russia and China. It carries over 20 million passengers and 2 million tons of freight daily. It is one of the world’s largest commercial employers with more than 1.6 million employees. It owns over 200000 freight wagons, 50000 coaches and 8000 locomotives. Indian railways hold monopoly in rail transport in India. Source of their market power can be attributed to following factors 1. Capital Intensive venture, which can be understood from the fact that Indian railways has a separate budget each year 2. Economies of scale, as Indian railways operate all over India and thus have sufficient operating domain to achieve economies of scale which a new entrant cannot easily replicate 3. Government rules and regulations Indian railways has a position, which......

...business entity that combines the most favorable aspects of general partnerships, limited partnerships, and corporations. An LLC operates under state law, not federal law. A limited liability partnership (LLP) is a special form of partnership in which all partners are limited partners, and there are no general partners. The last type of business form is a corporation, which is a fictitious legal entity that is created according to statutory requirements. ANALYSIS A sole proprietorship is probably not the best path for Professor Syska to take considering we have no revenue. If he were to close the firm due to no profit from magazine sales, he would be solely responsible for paying back all of the debt. This would directly put his personal assets at risk. A general partnership is irrelevant to our decision because Professor Syska is the only owner. This, again, would hold Professor Syska responsible for debt that the company might incur. A limited partnership is irrelevant for the same reason as the general partnership. Professor Syska has no other partners, leaving him responsible for all liability. A limited liability corporation (LLC) would be a good option because all partners are limited and there isn’t one that is solely liable. This means that Professor Syska’s assets wouldn’t be at risk. An LLC has laws that differ depending on which state the LLC is in. Choosing an LLC would mean that our company would need to make sure that the Texas requirements......

...Assignment 2 Part (a): Issue: Whether Robin has contractual rights in relation to the window coverings? Rules/ Applications: 1. Signature rule: The law states that a term is promissory and can be made expressly or impliedly. In this case, the term made between Robin and Sarah was in the written form and according to law, it is classified as express terms. In addition, Robin also signed the contract made by Sarah. Therefore signature rule applied and Robin was bound by the contents of the documents even though she did not read and understand the contract (Case from L’Estrange v Graucob). 2. Parol Evidence Rule Written contract contains all the terms and conditions of the agreements, and Sarah cannot subtract form, add to, vary or contradict the language of the written instrument. 3. Whether the Oral statement made by Sarah is a term of contract? In this case, at one of Robin and Sarah’s meetings, Robin asked Sarah whether the price of the house included curtains, blinds and window coverings. Sarah explained that all window coverings were provided for in the contract. An oral statement or representation only becomes part of the contract if a reasonable person would have regarded it as promissory. * Reasonable bystander test (Case from Oscar chess v Williams) 1) How objectively important is the representation to the overall deal? Before Robin purchase the house, she concerning about whether the house price include the window......

...Case Study A: What concerns would you have about operating this business as a sole proprietorship if you were Stan? What alternative form of business organization would you recommend and why? In this case Stan is thinking about starting a toxic waste disposal business. He is considering operating this business as a sole proprietorship. Although this is a valid business organization it also carries numerous disadvantages, if not all aspects of the company are taken into account. I will explain some possible conflicts Stan can encounter as a sole proprietorship, and I will recommend an alternative form of business organization that may become more beneficial. After taking into consideration the two different operations I will come to a conclusion of which business organization may be more preferable in Stan’s situation. A sole proprietorship is ideal for individuals operating a low risk and small business organization since there are many disadvantages with certain risks, or when the company begins to grow. Starting a toxic waste disposal with transportation raises many concerns. This operation is highly at risk for an incident and a sole proprietorship may not be the best business organization. As a sole proprietorship Stan would carry the business on his own without adopting any other form of business organization. Stan would have unlimited personal liability with any incident being fully responsible. One of the major issues is the environmental impact if there......

...society. Specifically, American consumers want a good life financed by credit. The American way is, "live today, pay tomorrow". Over the years, America’s obsession for living above their means grew, even if their incomes didn’t, as revealed by the U.S. 2004 Census. A preferred standard of living and feeling of entitlement is what has dominated U.S. consumer spending habits over the last few decades. “This mentality worked so well in the 1960's and 1970's, when there were high-paying jobs, but failed miserably in the 21st century. Inability of the bulk of the U.S. population to change its mentality and live sensibly has resulted in expensive purchases that were not backed by economic realities. Lenders have helped fuel the public mentality by providing easy credit. Anyone who wanted to buy an expensive car or a mansion was a precious customer. To further boost profits, financiers engaged in risky business deals and did not keep enough cash reserves.” (lucidpages.com). This credit driven economy was unsustainable and became daily practice by business, banks and government which as a result has led to the financial meltdown that we are still experiencing today. Financial institutions, specifically Bank of America, engaged in predatory lending practices, poor acquisitions with Countrywide and Merrill Lynch, and faulty balance sheet management in which have all contributed to the collapse of the U.S. economy. Not to mention, corporate greed, the increase in financial hits on......

...China to FDI was an integral part of China’s “open door” policy adopted at the launch of the economic reforms in 1978. Despite the tight control on foreign portfolio investment, the Chinese government began to actively promote direct investment from abroad. Faced with a severe shortage of capital, in particular foreign exchange, and SOEs with outdated technologies and limited production capacities, the Chinese government decided to make use of FDI as a means to offset capital deficiency, acquire advanced technology and production know-how, and promote exports. To eliminate the institutional hurdles to foreign investors and establish a proper legal environment, a law on Chinese-foreign joint ventures was promulgated in 1979. To give more choice and control to foreign investors, in 1986, the Chinese government passed a law on wholly foreign-owned enterprises, which officially permitted foreign investors to establish and operate their companies independently. Cautious and uncertain about the consequences of integrating the Chinese economy with the global economy, the Chinese government opened limited areas to foreign investors by establishing four special economic zones (SEZs): Shantou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai and Xiamen in 1980. The SEZs served as sites for experimentation. Their success in attracting FDI, promoting exports and regional economic growth led to the further opening of 14 cities in 1984, and eventually the whole of China to foreign investors in the late......
