Abstract

The purpose of this case is to expose students to the experience of issues as they arise in an international business context. The essence of the international context is understanding how business people assume different cultural and socio-political positions in different countries and that these clearly impact subsequent commercial considerations. This may be most difficult for students and managers to grasp where countries appear on the surface to be very similar. The case builds on a vignette which exposes students to US and Canadian law involving trading with Cuba. Students are supplied with an appendix containing appropriate US and Canadian legislation. Students will quickly realise that the positions of the two countries are quite opposite. A further vignette explores various issues associated with ''bucket shop'' air tickets. This case was sponsored by the Indiana University CIBER Case Collection.
