Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Section 8 -External Influences Effects of External Influences On the two Businesses. The explanation of an external influence means anything outside the control of the business itself. This includes competition, the economic conditions, and environmental laws. The local Government process and economic circumstances e.g. the interest rates for the bank you are borrowing from. Also the needs to maintain the Local environment e.g. have restrictions on the air pollution and river and waste pollution. The definition of External means the pressures from outside the business and internal is from inside from the business.

e.g. (hamburger, cheeseburger). Economic Conditions In this I am going to explain how important the exchange rate is economics. The exchange rate of the pound is higher against the dollar.

As Boots want to expand their products abroad they will earn double the amount of money that they make know due to the pound against the dollar. If super drug for example reduce their prices this will have as effect on Boots because this is their rival. They will therefore have to compete with this leading cosmetic store to get more customers then them. As Boots have an advantage card and ways of saving money this has as effect on other stores. ...read more.
