I could never figure them out. Today - if we dont' extend them, it's a fiscal cliff in which everyone will see their taxes go up, yet when they were passed in 01 and 03 - they were widely touted by some as "tax cuts for only the wealthiest Americans". Odd.


Anyway - I'd say the housing bubble and the subsequent effects of Dodd-Frank... whatever is in that bill. I think the things surrounding the housing crisis including Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Governtment, Wall Street, all of it together is a facinating topic. Enjoyed reading "Reckless Endangerment" for a time being, I still have to finish it.

mac5155 wrote:I have to write a paper on "the ten events of the last decade that most changed the business environment"... Since it's 2012, and I want to include the obvious 9/11, I'm stretching it and going back to 2000. Any suggestions? Here's what I've come up with thus far..

9/11
2008 financial / housing crisis
internet and social media
Oil prices
Enron/Lehman
G20
Iraq/Afghan wars
Natural Gas exploration
Obama's election (maybe I dont want to include this due to my liberal professor and my conservative views...)
Invention of Smartphones

any other ideas?


Something you might consider for organization:

Categorize your 10 events under 1) Globalization 2) Technology 3) Energy and 4) Corporate Social Responsibility or something like that and put 2 or 3 under each. I'm throwing in other suggested topics under the categories. Forgive me if I've overstepped.

So, you might put 3 the following under Globalization:

9/11 could fit here because was an external geopolitical (crisis) event with economic ramifications
Iraq/Afghan wars
Obama's election
Emergence of BRIC Economies (Brazil, Russia, India, and China)


Technology:
Social media
Virtual teams (or asynchronous work)
Offshoring white-collar industry (legal services, radiology, etc.)
**Maybe relationship management -- B2B and B2C relationships stronger because of increased accessibility, info transfer, document sharing

CSR:
(A) Energy
Natural gas exploration
Oil dependency
Sustainability, alternative energy and green innovation
(B) Ethics
Shift from classical view (profit above all) to socioeconomic view (stakeholders matter)
Subprime mortgage crisis (so many parts to that puzzle)
SOX (you don't have to go into great detail because...yeah, ugh)
