Non-Market Production

The non-market production occurs mostly in times of financial crisis or as a way for individual to evade certain governmental controls. This kind of market also suffers a significant increase when needed goods are scarce and the internal production can’t satisfy the demand. Countries that experience high demand of basic necessity goods and low production of these goods are more likely to develop a strong and out-of-control non-market production market, also known as black market. This kind of market is not reflected in the GDP because it can’t be controlled or audited by the government. The NPM (non-production market) also refers to services based on cash flow, illegal substances and contrabands, illegal money exchanges, etc.
One perfect example of this kind of market is founded in my native country Venezuela, where basic necessity products like milk, eggs, chicken, sugar, flower, toilette paper, and medicine can’t be found easily. A parallel market developed and now people are paying more than 4,000% of its regulated price. The dollar exchange in this country can be used as an example; in which the government set the price for 6.35Bf per dollar (03/19/2015. Source: http://themoneyconverter.com/USD/VEF.aspx) but it can’t be bought through regular channels. In consequence, the dollar’s exchange price increased to an impressive 283.41Bf per dollar or 4,463% of the official price (Source: http://dollar.nu/paralelo-en.php).
One can’t but wonder why Venezuela is such a financial situation, with an annualized inflation of 63% and 98% on the consumer’s products, and a -26.7% GDP Growth Rate (Source: see Reference). One reason is that Venezuelan government does not fear God, or there are any God fearing officials. A nation that is not founded on biblical principles and look for God good grace and wisdom to govern its people will fail miserably as Proverb 29:2 say “When the righteous rules, people rejoice; but when the wicked rules the people groan.” We, in the USA must be careful not to follow bad policies concerning our economy and learn the lesson of good stewardship and government accountability.

Non Market Stategy

...constituencies, in both international and US environments. Topics include integrated strategy, activists and the media, legislation affecting business, lobbying, regulation and antitrust, intellectual property, international trade policy, and business ethics. Most core courses focus on firms’ interactions with customers, suppliers, and alliance partners in the form of mutually beneficial exchange transacted in markets. In contrast, this course considers the strategic interactions of firms with comparably important constituents, organizations, and institutions outside of markets. Issues considered include those involving activist and interest groups, the media, legislatures, regulatory and antitrust agencies, and international organizations such as the WTO. Markets and the business environment are increasingly interrelated: issues such as boycotts, legislation, regulation, judicial decisions, and trade policy directly affect firms’ market performance. Conversely, the profit-maximizing activities of firms often give rise to issues that involve governments and the public. For example, the market strategies of some ecommerce firms have sparked debates ranging from intellectual property protection to Internet privacy. Correspondingly, managerial decision-making almost always has ethical implications. More often than not, however, those ethical implications are viewed as implicit byproducts, rather than explicit determinants, of business decisions. In POLECON 230 ethics is made......
