You have two tasks to complete over half term. The first is a 15 mark essay question from June 2013:
Q9b – Study Figure 9
Examine the role that TNCs play in the growth of globalisation (15).
The mark scheme is below
The second task is the powerpoint presentation on a TNC case study – Vodafone:
You need to produce a Powerpoint presentation on Vodafone as a TNC.
Remember to outline:
- What does Vodafone do?
- How many people work for it?
- Where is it based?
- Where is Vodafone’s HQ? Explain how it supplies it’s products
- globally and it’s impacts on the environment and societies.
- How does Vodafone encourage and promote globalisation?
- What negative points have been made against Vodafone?
The graphic below is the Economist graphic I used in the lesson on Friday showing the difficulty in establishing which country a TNC actually belongs to.
