  2. Japón 2010: Los años perdidos EC1-122

    This case takes a look at the events that led up to the bursting of Japan’s stock-market bubble in 2010. It begins by describing the economic situation in Japan in the 1980s at the start of the crisis, delving into the appreciation of the yen, loss of competitiveness, low interest rates, the over-valuation of the stock market leading to inflation and the upward trend in the unemployment rate. It emphasizes that there were twenty years of poor political leadership where the political party changed frequently. The case outlines the government in Japan during the nineties and includes a detailed description of how each prime minister’s actions affected the economy. Then in 2001, seeking economic recovery, Koizumi’s government launched a comprehensive plan of reforms based on solving the problem of bad debts, establishing a stable financial system and defining seven programs of structural reform. When Koizumi left office, the economic situation was unstable and between 2006 and 2009, up to three different prime ministers occupied the post. Between 2007 and 2009, stimulus packages implemented by the government caused public debt as a percentage of Japan’s GDP to increase nearly 55 percent. This led the Bank of Japan to take emergency measures. In 2009, Hatoyama came into power, ending the Koizumi era. The government then had their chance to put an end to the “lost years.”

  5. Production costs, revenues and profits in perfect co … EC1-136-I

    The objective of this short case is to familiarize students with what it is like to do business at the base of the pyramid; and to use a practical situation to review the concepts of fixed and variable costs, implicit and explicit costs, and accounting profit vs economic profit. Students are also asked to reflect on the implications of operating in a perfectly competitive market, and to offer suggestions from market structure theory for a firm like the one described here, that would enable it to break out of its inevitable zero-profit equilibrium and move toward economic profits in the long run.

  6. Un caso de Coaching: Daniela Rabadan (A) CO1-250-A

    Daniela is looking for help for the conflicts she is going through in her interactions. Given that she's afraid of self-affirmation, which she associates with a loss of affection for others, her intelligence for interpersonal relationships is weakened. She is afraid to become undervalued, and hence doesn't put herself in value, and as a consequence suffers by not being valued by others. With Daniela we can see that it is not possible to understand other's behavior without understanding the concept that others have of themselves. Self esteem is a basic need to function and improve all of our capabilities. As a result of low self esteem, we see that emotions such as anger and fear dominate the interpretation of reality that Daniela has for decision making, instead of calm, peace or joy.

    The student, after going through the case, is faced with the challenge of filling the boots of Daniela's coach, and to offer their approach to help the coachee with her process.
