Argentina Uncorks Malbec; World Ready for a Glass

1. Identify the marketing strategies that have helped Argentina’s wine industry expand beyond its home market and reach consumers in all parts of the world.

Argentina’s wine industry has expanded beyond its home market and has reached consumers in all parts of the world thanks to winemakers’ concentration on cultivating Malbec grapes. Certainly, the industry has found an area in which it excels and was able to export specialized wines that appealed to a more global market, particularly the American market.

2. Even though the Malbec grape is well known in Argentina, consumers in other countries are less familiar with it. What recommendations do you have to help increase consumer understanding of, and appreciation for, Malbec-based wines? In order to help increase consumer understanding of, and appreciation for Malbec-based wines, Argentinian wine makers could promote their wine production by informing consumers on the processes that they use to produce the wine. By promoting the Malbec grape as a local product, and a true Argentinian cultural wealth, consumers may be seduced by the “exotic” nature of the product.

3. The forces of supply and demand affect many industries, and the wine industry is no exception. Currently the world is awash in an ocean of excess wine. Many winemakers in France, Australia, and other countries are struggling financially. Given this situation, what can Argentina’s wine producers do to maintain or increase their market share?

Given the ocean of excess wine affecting the global market today, Argentina’s wine producers should focus on the quality of their wine rather than the quantity produced in order to maintain or increase their market share. Indeed, to maintain its market share, the value perceived by the consumer is where success truly lies.

...Argentina’s community and economy has plenty of potential for any firms looking to do business here. As a United States firm looking to expand business, conducting research on this country is a must. It’s location on the South American continent is second best behind Brazil, but it will make our business here succeed. As a U.S. firm looking to expand our business in Argentina, businesses must know the cultural aspects of the country being pursued. Argentina has its very own customs in the households and in public, but businesswise, most of the customs and norms are the same as the United States. The main language spoken here in this country is Spanish, and English is being learned as a second language. As an U.S. firm traveling to this country, learning Spanish as a second language to maintain a successful business in Argentina is a must. Learning Spanish will show Argentina businesses and their leaders that time was taken out to learn their language to communicate. Business leaders in Argentina depend on establishing and maintaining a great, personal relationship in order for businesses to compete and flourish in the economy. Just like a U.S. business, firms need good relationships with other business leaders or other firms to keep their own business flowing and producing goods or services. Argentine customs with holding business conversations are right in tune with U.S. business meetings or conversations. The greetings, handshakes, eye contact, punctuality, and the......

Arab World Ready for Democracy

...Research Proposal The essay question that I have decided to research in further detail explores the struggles of establishing a successful democratic system in the Islamic World, with specific reference to the recent Arab Spring uprisings in Egypt and Algeria. These modern revolutions implement a series of unique tactics, (provoked by the triumph of the Egyptian rebellion in 2010), and provide a unique prospect for establishing a permanent democracy. However, with existing traditions practiced in the Islamic World that often run contrary to democratic ideals, the unanimous acceptance of democracy and its accompanying social values will indeed be a slow and challenging process in these relatively conservative states. The “lens” through which this essay will be examined is in a critical manner of the Arab Spring events. Although the media deemed the revolutions an overnight success during the time period in which they occurred, the accompanying affects and challenges were blatantly ignored. Indeed, while it is a commendable feat that dictator-like institutions were overthrown in a relatively short period of time (and disputably with little violence), the ability for these democratic institutions to successfully practice political norms modeled after centuries-old democratic states is an immense challenge. The thesis statement will essentially argue that although the Arab Spring revolutions provided the essential platform for institutionalizing democracy in Egypt and......

Ready or Not

...  Ready or Not….   For once, governments and public health official appear to be more prepared than businesses do. They have spent billions preparing for a potential influenza pandemic by buying medicines, running disaster drills, and developing strategies for tighter border controls. On the other hand, a survey of global companies by London-based newsletter Continuity Central found that 72 percent have not even begun to get ready for a potential bird flu pandemic. Businesses in the U.S. seem to be particularly unprepared. In a survey by Deloitte & Touche of 100 U.S. executives, two-thirds said their companies had not yet prepared adequately for avian flu, and most have not one specifically in charge of such a plan. What these businesses might not realize is how they potentially will be affected. For instance, how will they continue to do their business if their workforce is ill or quarantined; if transportation, communication, utility services of other necessary public infrastructure functions are not available or are only available in limited areas; or if financial services are curtailed? How will they earn revenues if the general public is sick or not able to venture out? It’s a scenario with monumental implications for both the short term and the long term.   One company that has panned for any potential avian flu outbreak is Deutsche Bank. The steps it has taken include making sure employees in infected zones don’t carry the disease to co-workers, moving others......

Argentina Wine

...Argentina Wine My company has become interested in selling wine. My company will consist of a few stores throughout the country along with an online store. My company will be different than others by not carrying local wine. My company is based in the United States but is investigating in to selling imported wine from Argentina. The United States wine industry has been increasing in sales since the early 90’s. In 2014 just 893 million gallons of wine were sold in the United States. California produces about 90% of American wines. Though Americans are the top consumers of wine throughout the world, our production only account for 8% of wine produce in the world. Malbec one of the wines Argentina produces in large quantities is one of the favorite cheaper wines in the United States. About 94% of restaurants in the United States serve Malbec. So there is a defiant demand for this wine. The United States being the largest importer of Argentina wines can be seen as either a strength or a weakness. Strength is that you know it will sell, and it is essay enough to import. The weakness is that there is a chance that the supply is already meeting the demand. This wouldn’t be such a bad effect on online stores but actual stores would need to research to make sure the market is not already covered in their area. The best reason to not import wine from Argentina is the new labor price increase. Some farmers are saying that is almost 40%. This will make the cost of wine......
