Class, as we move into Week 2, we saw that from Week 1, poverty is the very large central focus of many developing countries. Clearly there are many variables that are involved in the persistence of poverty among so many in nations around the world. Wealth inequality is usually well known for many of these countries, however, less well known is the fact that so many developing nations hold the majority of the world’s vast natural resources. These nations have great potential to develop through technologies (as many already have) to exponentially grow their economies to benefit all of their citizens, not just the very few who have gained a great deal of wealth.

AND respond to this post directly:
A)Discuss information from the Webtext chapter reading and lecture that presents evidence that much of the monetary assistance and other forms of aid are stolen by government officials.
I think in any government there is a risk of corruption. Even with the amount of of government regulations and government oversight to try and limit corruption, there will still be government officials that find ways to steal. Some of the ways monetary assistance is stolen by government officials are bid-rigging, kickbacks and preferential treatments for selected government officials. In developing, countries kickbacks are a huge form of corruption because those that are in power have the means to keep themselves in positions of power by taking a kick back and favors from the political offices and banks that are loaning the money. In most cases, the population in these developing countries are uneducated and doesn’t have the resources to fight the corruption from their governments, so the cycle just continues.
Another way aid is stolen in these regions is through the use of military funding. In these regions, the military is heavenly depended upon to maintain peace and order and in most cases, military officials are not transparent with their spending, so they are able to steal millions from government funding and use for their own personal use. If there is no transparency, then there is no way to account for the mis obligation of funds which allows them the opportunities to steal
Explain in detail what other MAIN factors account for the misuse of these funds.One of the main factors that account for the misuse of funds is in most developing countries there is not an honest bureaucracy established to oversee the finances. With as strong of a bureaucracy that the United States has and all the government oversight and various agencies created to oversee government spending that is still theft and corruption that occurs so I can only imagine how rampant it is in these developing countries.
C) How has the IMF and the World Bank tried to control fraud, theft or corruption in developing countries?
I think one of the main ways the IMF and World Bank have tried to control fraud is by being transparent and by having to account to more than one official.

Bosch Nefit is a B2B organization, so they offer every one of their items to wholesalers and not straightforwardly to the shoppers (B2C).

In content reference Marketing Mix: (DE ONLINE ZAAK, 2018) (Nefit, 2018) (Tempel, 2018) Objectives and targets Bosch Nefit objectives and target We accept that Bosch Nefit represents assurance, as expressed in their strategic vision on their site. They offer dependable, broadly appropriate and supportable answers for warming and vitality supply. Their vision expresses that they need to separate themselves from rivals in their market. They do this by offering great items, and an excellent assistance. (Nefit, 2017) Watchman’s conventional systems The hypothesis we will use to characterize Bosch Nefit’s system will be the Porter’s conventional procedures. This procedure portrays the manner in which an organization attempts to increase an upper hand in its market. There are four distinct techniques in this hypothesis. The four are: Cost authority, separation, cost center and center separation. In this hypothesis Bosch Nefit is classified in separation. The methodology includes one or numerous criteria utilized by the purchasers in a market, and afterward the objective is to situate the business remarkably meeting those criteria. The technique likewise is typically connected with charging premium costs for the item, as should be obvious with Bosch Nefit’s items contrasted with contenders. Be that as it may, this more significant expense the greater part of the occasions is to cover for the high generation expenses and extra included an incentive for the clients, to obviously separate. Separation is essentially about charging more significant expenses to take care of high creation costs with the objective to give clients clear motivations to lean toward those items over items from contenders. (Instructions Marketing examination , 2018) (Tutor2u, n.d.) There are various ways accomplishment in separation can be accomplished. Be that as it may, it is difficult and it needs speculation. We should begin with high item quality, as it needs to stick out. Marking is likewise significant, individuals need to perceive your image. What’s more, obviously, limited time support, consider promoting and sponsorships, starting at course individuals need to think about your organization. Since possibly not every person knows about your items. (Tutor2u, n.d.) How Bosch Nefit utilizes this technique As previously mentioned, the hypothesis we utilized for this is Porter’s conventional methodologies. The methodology Bosch Nefit utilizes is clearly separation, as they try to be novel in its industry. They attempt to make their items more appealing than those of their rival. There are a few reasons why we accept that Bosch Nefit applies to the separation thought in this hypothesis. The first is because of the enormous measure of cash that is spent by the business on innovative work. This enables them to offer a result of better which individuals are then ready to purchase at a top notch cost. Likewise, clients are probably going to realize the advantages offered by utilizing items from Bosch Nefit, for example, the life span of their items, recommending that their items are in fact of high caliber. (Mind Tools , 2018) Spending limit and Responsibility for promoting • Available spending plan o In 2017, the recorded net income was 186 million euros. (Budgetary Report Bosch Thermotechniek 2017) • Marketing o Marketing and Product Management, which is constrained by the Commercial Director, is liable for promoting in the association. (Bosch Thermotechniek B.V. (TTNL)) Lamentably, our gathering didn’t figure out how to locate the vital data about the accessible spending plan of Bosch and the individuals who are liable for the organization’s showcasing exercises. We are meaning to discover more on Week 6 when we will visit Bosch Nefit again and pose a few inquiries about the subjects to the agent of the organization. Client contact There are three different ways clients can contact Bosch Nefit. The first is the quickest one and that is calling 0570 602 500. At the point when you call this number, you will get the client support on the telephone. They can help answer a large portion of the inquiries and issues the clients have in a brief timeframe. On the off chance that there’s a major issue with the evaporator of a client (on the off chance that it doesn’t warm the place of a client any longer), calling is the best choice, since Bosch Nefit can send an installer right away. The other two different ways are to send an email and setting off to the workplace of Bosch Nefit. Email is a moderate choice since it requires some investment for Nefit to answer all the messages they get. In this way, if a client needs a fast solution to his/her inquiry, email is certainly not a decent alternative. Additionally, if there’s an issue with the evaporator (for instance that a client can’t warm his/her home) email is an awful alternative. The last one is heading off to the workplace of Bosch Nefit. However, for this choice you should make an arrangement. Along these lines, this is likewise not a fast choice. In any case, a few clients locate this a pleasant alternative, since they can talk eye to eye with somebody of the organization.
