Companies invest in overseas firms -- i.e., conduct M&As and joint ventures abroad for different reasons, just as the overall investment patterns (or FDI) of individual countries varies worldwide due to a multitude of factors. 

Using an example or two of a company AND an example or two of a country, explain the main reasons for a recent M&A deal (or deals) and how these M&As/or joint ventures fit into trends in current global trade patterns and FDI patterns as you understand them.

How should a US company deal with corruption issues (please be specific) from an ethical and legal perspective in a foreign country such as China?  Describe some of the "corrupt" practices prevalent in China.  How can these cultural issues be dealt with or mitigated effectively?  See the Eiteman book for an understanding of Political and Country-specific risks. Please also note the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act below.  Please also take into account the prevalent anti-corruption and anti-bribery laws in China.
