In this webisode: I discuss my experience in Brazil (Sao Paulo) and Chile (Santiago). We met with companies in various businesses, including: banking, financial, airline, consumer products, winery, copper mining, etc…
Brazil is a BRIC with 200 million people and doing well because of major improvements in the political and legal system. The country risk has drop substantially and so has the equity risk premium (ERP).
Chile is small but has high per capital GDP, Chile is doing well because it is open to outside investment.
Back on campus we are continuing with Strategy (Wal-Mart and Apple case studies) and starting Leadership in Organizations, Competitive Advantages from Operations.
