Transcript of Business 110 at HCC

Chapter 1 Terminology
1st Day Videos
Chapter 1 is an overview of business. The chapter includes a section on technology and the evolution of business. Your assignment for chapter 1 is to explore the idea of how technology has changed the evolution of business or how you think it will change businesses in the future. You can interpret the assignment as you wish (for this assignment) but could, for example, take how have hand held devices changed how businesses do business or how they have changed how consumers make their purchases.

Another idea is to find some emerging technology that will change businesses as we now know it. Watch this video on the rollup laptop": or this one on car windows: or this one on surface technologies:

You could write about new changes in cell phones and what the changes mean or even relate the changes in business with the "first day" videos we watched. Be creative and have fun with this assignment. Please type your answer here in the textbox rather than uploading an attached file (it will be quicker for me to read and grade). 10 points

Chapter 3 Homework
Chapter 3 is about Globalization. For this chapter's assignment, discuss what you think about globalization and is it good or not good. Some would say that we need to take care of our own. Others would say that we are all dependent upon each other and it is our moral duty to think of bettering everyone on the planet, not just our nations. Some feel that globalization will help reduce corruption since corrupt officials will be accountable to other nations not just their own people. Read an article from the Internet and discuss what you find. Include the facts (with citations, please) where appropriate, voice your opinion and support your opinion. Then challenge others on the discussion board. 10 points will be awarded on the discussion board for the quality of your postings.

Chapter 4 Terminology
Ethical Relativism
Heraclitus and
Epicurus and Zino
Chapter 4 Homework
For this chapter's assignment, I would like you to read anything that you can find on classical ethical theories (utilitarian, Kant, justice theory, etc.) and summarize in just a paragraph or two what you found out. Remember that you have a PowerPoint that I borrowed from the Internet in project #1's Word document from the PhD professor that teaches ethics. We briefly looked at it in class.
Then I want you to take a situation that you think that you are right and using the ethical theory you read about, justify why you are right. You can use a disagreement with family, friends, significant others for this assignment if you wish such as justifying why you are in school and not just working a 40 hour a week job. You can also use a current event such as the raising of student loan interest rates.
This is a classical 1st assignment in any ethics class. I hope you will ask questions in class so that I can help you understand what you are doing for this assignment. So just ask away......

Chapter 5 Homework
For assignment 5, I want you to look up the particulars of creating a LLC. Let's say that you graduate and can't find a job. Since you are highly educated, you decide to start your own business using a LLC structure. What would you have to do to set it up and why would you use this format over a sole proprietor or other structure. Be specific and not a one liner that says it limits my liability (0 points for one liners). You can find articles on the Internet but you may also want to go to the IRS.gov website for more info. You can also read your textbook for information. =)

Chapter 6 Terminology
Chapter 6 video
Chapter 6 Homework
For Chapter 6 Homework, I would like you to take the Business Plan on page 165 of your book and write a paragraph or two for each section on a small business idea that you have. A full business plan is 25-50 pages long so this is just an introductory to what each section is about (hence a couple of paragraphs each). the idea here is that if you write just a couple of paragraphs for each section, you will have to think about what should be in each section. Choose any idea that you have about some business that you potentially would like to create. We will discuss this more in class so come prepared with some ideas.

Chapter 7

Chapter 7 Terminology

Chapter 7 Homework
Continuing with the business plan you started in chapter 6, write a mission statement, goals and objectives for your company. The mission statement should clearly say why you are in business. The goals of the company should be 3-7 abstract ideas of what you need to do to be successful with this company. It is not an exhaustive list. think of this list as your critical success factors or what you would you would have to do well for your company to be more successful than the next guy. For each goal, give a couple of objectives (concrete steps as opposed to abstract steps) on how you would achieve your company goals. We will discuss this more in detail in class so again, just come to class for more details.

The rule of indemnity says that an insured person or organization cannot collect more than the actual loss from an insurable risk.

Rule of Indemnity

The policymaker must have an insurable interest.
The loss should be measurable.
The chance of loss should be measurable.
The loss should be accidental.
The risk should be dispersed.
The insurance company can set standards for accepting the risk.

Guidelines for Evaluating if Risk is Insurable

Market Risk

Political Risk

Personal Risk

Operational Risk

Types of Uninsurable Risk

Many companies and municipalities have turned to self-insurance.
Companies turn to this option because they either can’t find or can’t afford conventional property/casualty policies.
Firms set aside money to cover routine claims and buy only “catastrophe” insurance policies to cover big losses.

Self-Insuring Against Risk

Insurance needs decline as you grow

Children are grown.
Mortgage is low or completely paid off.
Debts are paid off.
Insurance needs are few.
Retirement income is needed.

Why Buy Term Insurance?

Insurance needs in early years are high:

Children are young and need money for education.
Mortgage is high relative to income.
Often there are auto payments and other bills to pay.
Loss of income would be disastrous.

Imagine that you won the lottery but didn't hit the big jackpot (you were missing one number). Still, the amount that you will receive in a lump sum is sizeable. You want to spend some of the money in a couple of years to move to a new house and put the rest in your retirement so that you know it is "solid". How would you invest this money?

You can wait to answer this homework assignment after our guest speaker on the last day of class but you will have to have it done by that Friday midnight at the latest.
