Country Case Report (Due before midnight on 11/3) This report will allow the students to learn about the theories/concepts of globalization, the role of global cities and the competitive advantage of nations, globalization?s non-polarity, the geopolitics of scarce natural resources, and the role of domestic politics on outsourcing and its affect on the financial recovery.

Whether or how (Your Selected Country) has managed or has been altered because of the new geopolitics of energy or other scarce natural resources (i.e., water, etc); how does the country?s domestic politics view outsourcing and whether it will affect the country?s financial recovery; and whether the country has solved or has been impeded by the puzzle of economic development.
