The financial crisis in many countries in Asia in 1997-1998 was an unexpected event. It was mainly because most of the Asian countries had been enjoying economic growth prior to the crisis. The crisis itself started with the devaluation of Thailand’s Baht in July 1997. The Thailand government decided to float its currency in order to defend the Baht against speculative attack, despite its fixed exchange rate system. This decision was apparently the beginning of the economic downturn of many Asian countries, such as Malaysia, Philippines, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Indonesia. Before the crisis, Indonesia’s economy was growing rapidly; having a low inflation and a well-maintained current account deficit. However, Indonesia surprisingly became the country that was affected the most by the crisis. This paper aims to examine the effects of the Asian financial crisis in 1997-1998 to Indonesian economy and how it could happen.
Description of the Business: Flowers For The World (FFTW) was incorporated in 1912 and is headquartered in New York. We are a large horticultural company that is engaged in import, export and distribution of flowers. It is with immense passion that we drive this business and are one of the most experience brands on the street. Since 1994 our specialty has been in the sales of Roses, Daffodils and Irises. We almost ace the markets for these 3 flowers in competitive space and are working hard to be even better. The manner in which we conduct our business activities is that we participate in auction each week in Aalsmeer, Holland. We have been extremely successful bidders in the auction market and hold expertise in bidding the right quantity of flowers at the most competitive price. Once we are notified of our results from the auction, we engage in string of partnerships to sell flowers directly to the customers. We make sure that the delivery is conducted in a timely fashion and do sell the most of what we purchased. Any excess flow of flowers is refrigerated in the long island warehouse and the life is estimated to be 3weeks of refrigerated flowers. Our effort is always to make the least use of warehouse and match purchases and sales. Our efficiency in the business is remarkable and our expertise has helped us to have an edge above our competitors. FFTW is committed to innovate continuously and provide customer satisfaction with pleasing investors.
Introduction The Philippines is one of the developing countries presently. It is poised to become an industrialized country within 5-10 years. The main economic drivers are the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who usually remit on average $25 Billion a year (www.bsp.gov.ph/Statistics/keystat/ofw.htm). Next to this are the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) which is popularly known as call center business which churns about $18 Billion a year (www.asiabriefing.com/news/2015/02/oursourcing-bpo). You could see skyscrapers in major metropolitan areas sprouting unceasingly signalling that the economy is robust and poised to take off. Or is it really? This paper will attempt to analyze the travails and missteps of this beautiful country endowed with rich natural resources with 7,107 islands called an archipelago with seas and oceans surrounding these islands. The naturally hospitable, friendly and smiley people lends a strong backdrop to this country with about 107 million population (http://itsmorefuninthephilippines.com/). It has a good English-speaking population which is why the biggest bank of the US, JP Morgan Chase has call centers and direct hired telephone bankers, officers, and specialists, celebrating its 10th year of presence in the Philippines. Wells Fargo, the no. 4 bank also has extensive call centers and back office support in the Philippines. These foreign parties-driven businesses coming from the OFWs and BPOs are the main drivers of the economy.
Philippines repeatedly experienced boom and bust in its economy since 1980. Having faced huge debt crisis in 1983 and the Asian Financial Crisis in 1997, it can be said that the nation is back on its feet from being the “sick man of Asia” to a “tiger cub,” and becoming realigned with the ASEAN-6 (Worldbank). The GDP growth has been growing at 4.5 percent under Macapagal-Arroyo and even better under Aquino’s at 6 percent. Account balances also recorded surpluses repeatedly since 2003 (CIA Factbook).
