Libya Case Part Two
In part one I defined the problem statement as; “What are we going to do about the situation in Libya that is in the best interest of the citizens of the United States?” To rephrase this problem to help identify the causes consider this. The world looks to the United Nations and the United States as protectors of global peace. All eyes are upon us. The world expects us to react. The Middle East is in a heightened state of turmoil, people are rebelling against their oppressive governments and unlike other uprisings, the Libyan dictator has chosen to ignore the people’s concerns and squash the rebellion using violence and mass destruction of his people. Zainab Elghul a 17-year-old youth of Libyan descent living in Canada states “There is no excuse for us to not act. Later when it is over, and large numbers of people have died, we will not have anything to say and we will not be able to defend ourselves and make excuses for not acting; we will be just as guilty as Gaddafi and his regime because we just sat and watched!” (Elghul, 2011, para. 9).
In keeping with the history of international humanitarianism, using Bosnia, Kosovo, or Rwanda as examples, the United Nations determined that action is necessary and the United Nations along with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) have a responsibility to the world to do whatever it takes to minimize the bloodshed. The United Nations called for a no-fly zone to help protect the people of Libya from its own government and that protecting them from Gaddafi is in the best interest of the world. As part of the United Nations and NATO the United States is not obligated to support the international leadership organization but the leaders expect our support.
In identifying the cause of this problem, one must not forget about the impact oil plays in the…...

...omadFNCE 726 – Advanced Corporate Finance Case #7 Chrysler’s Warrants Case Brian Davis, Himanshu Nagpal, Neill Butcher, Ryan Nelson, Sebastian Mancel 1.) What is the rationale behind the government bail-out? Why is bail-out a better alternative than Chapter 11 bankruptcy? As discussed in the footnotes of the case, we know that the negative impact on the federal budget would be greater than the cost of assistance due to unemployment benefits, social programs, and reduced tax revenues. Additionally, a bankruptcy would disproportionately affect an entire region. Failure would also most likely lead to greater monopoly power of the remaining firms. 2.) Value Chrysler’s warrants on four different dates: September 14 1979, January 7 1980, April 8, 1980 and May 12 1980. Why does the value of the warrants change over time? The value of the Chrysler warrants were estimated for the four dates based on the prior 30-day volatility of returns and a riskless rate using the 90-day T-Bill (see table below). In addition to these two factors, the value of the warrants change based on the stock price and the maturity date. Because the maturity dates are very similar, this factor had little effect on the warrant value. From September 1979 to January 1980, the increase in volatility was the primary driver in the increase in value over the period. By April 1980, the increasing riskless rate would have pushed up the value, but the sharp drop in stock price lowered it. We can...

Libya

...Gaddafi and Libya There have been many significant events and conflicts that occurred in the Middle East. Some that existed in the search for justice and some that existed for political power. Countries have tried to establish rules and laws to create a better. Many countries in the Middle East are facing the same problem such as Libya. In Libya Gaddafi has put a lot of effort to make a utopia through his ideology and the Green Book, but instead this lead to corruption. The Libyan Constitution of October 7, 1951 was established to ratify the rights of the Libyan citizen, yet it forecasted a controversial conflict due to the Libyan nation state. It eventually contributed the way for Gaddafi’s rise to power who ultimately replaced Libyan law with his “Green Book”. This paper will explain the flaws of the 1951 constitution and how Gaddafi replaced it. The terms of the constitution that helped the postwar creation of the Libyan nation state were significant. The constitution allowed the citizens or the people of Libya to be pleased to have such justification. It had laws such as no slavery and that no slave trade can be acceptable. One of the laws that helped secure the citizens from being abused was the one that says that nobody can be tortured or be beat cruelly. This permitted the citizens to know that the people in power cannot crucially punish them. It basically allows the citizen to know that whomever the ruler maybe, they cannot act unfairly towards them...

...KXO223: Systems Acquisition and Implementation Assignment 1, 2013 – Case Studies Tutorial-based group assessments Due: See ‘Due Dates for Case Study Submission’ section Marks: 30% of the total marks for the unit Background – Learning with Cases Harvard University, probably the most famous source of teaching cases, describes these resources as follows: “Teaching cases – also known as case studies – are narratives designed to serve as the basis for classroom discussion. Cases don’t offer their own analysis. Instead, they are meant to test the ability of students to apply the theory they’ve learned to a ‘real world’ situation … where good accounts of specific events can help exemplify and illuminate theory” (Harvard, 2000). The use of cases based on or around real organisations and/or current issues provides an entirely different approach to learning from that of lectures or more conventional tutorial exercises, where students solve specific problems in isolation from the world of business. Case preparation is a significant part of both undergraduate and postgraduate business study – particularly in the English-speaking world – and it is important to learn to do it effectively and efficiently. I have provided two introductory readings to help you with this process: “Learning Information Systems with Cases” (a pdf file available from your KXO223 MyLO resources) and “Notes on Writing a Case Study Report” (included in this document as Appendix A).

The story of the Libya as well as that of its people is quite remarkable. In the globalization era, the present questions regard the ability to economically capitalize on growth treads in Libya. The security and stabilization issues have for a long time plugged in this nation, and with the current tread, there is little possibility of these issues fading away any time soon.

Comparing the Economic Development of Sudan and Libya

...Economics 211 Comparing the Economic Development of Sudan and Libya Professor George Hartner March 20, 2014 University of Regina In comparing the economic growth of developing countries, in this case Sudan and Libya, it is important to understand the variables impacting the growth of the two nations. These variables include social conflict, corruption within the institutions, transportation issues and the commodities in which their economies are structured around. Social conflict has had a great impact on both of the nation’s economic prosperity as well as their infrastructure. As well, corruption has greatly impacts the availability of financial resources for the citizens of either nation. In this comparison of nations, I will argue that Libya is more economically developed and has more economic potential than Sudan. The commodities in Libya offer a future of wealth for the nation and the potential for immediate growth economically and socially. Social conflict and civil war has affected and continues to affect many nations around the globe. Sudan is a nation which has been involved in decades of civil war and as a result has left the nation struggling to survive, leaving almost no basic infrastructure to create order within the nation. They were left without schools, a functioning government or financial institutions. From this, many problems have arisen. Groups such as the Lebanese Hezzbollah terrorist sect have...

Libya

...Muammar al-Qaddafi Comes to Power and Militarizes Libya On Sept. 1, 1969, 27-year-old Col. Muammar al-Qaddafi deposed the king and revolutionized the country, making it a pro-Arabic, anti-Western, Islamic republic with socialist leanings. It was also rabidly anti-Israeli. A notorious firebrand, Qaddafi aligned himself with dictators, such as Uganda's Idi Amin, and fostered anti-Western terrorism. On Aug. 19, 1981, two U.S. Navy F-14s shot down two Soviet-made SU-22s of the Libyan air force that had attacked them in air space above the Gulf of Sidra. On March 24, 1986, U.S. and Libyan forces skirmished in the Gulf of Sidra, and two Libyan patrol boats were sunk. Qaddafi's troops also supported rebels in Chad but suffered major military reverses in 1987. A two-year-old U.S. covert policy to destabilize the Libyan government ended in failure in Dec. 1990. On Dec. 21, 1988, a Boeing 747 exploded in flight over Lockerbie, Scotland, the result of a terrorist bomb, killing all 259 people aboard and 11 on the ground. This and other acts of terrorism, including the bombing of a Berlin discotheque in 1986 and the downing of a French UTA airliner in 1989 that killed 170, turned Libya into a pariah in the eyes of the West. Two Libyan intelligence agents were indicted in the Lockerbie bombing, but Qaddafi refused to hand them over, leading to UN-approved trade and air traffic embargoes in 1992. In 1999, Libya finally surrendered the two men, who were tried in the Netherlands in...

Libya and My Abiding Faith

...Libya and My Abiding Faith Libya sits directly between Tunisia and Egypt -– two nations where changes of regime has taken place recently through its own’s pople complicated effort.  For more than four decades, the Libyan people have been ruled by a tyrant -– Muammar Qaddafi.  He has denied his people freedom, exploited their wealth, murdered opponents at home and abroad, and terrorized innocent people around the world. Last month, Qaddafi’s grip of fear appeared to give way to the promise of freedom.  In cities and towns across the country, Libyans took to the streets to claim their basic human rights.  As one Libyan said to an international mass media, “For the first time we finally have hope that our nightmare of 40 years will soon be over.” In the face of the world’s condemnation, Qaddafi chose to escalate his attacks, launching a military campaign against the Libyan people.  Innocent people were targeted for killing. Hospitals and ambulances were attacked.  Journalists were arrested and sexually assaulted.  Supplies of food and fuel were choked off.  Water for hundreds of thousands of people in Misurata was shut off.  All of these brutal things cannot be hidden from the unprecedented development of technology development. Confronted by this brutal repression and a looming humanitarian crisis,  European allies declared their willingness to commit resources to stop the killing.  And so United Nations Security Council has passed historic resolution that authorized a...
