Extracts from this document...


How does the world market affect US market? Marketing is an economic activity affected by the economic environment in which it is conducted. International marketing has a twofold economic environment: world economy and economy of individual countries. It is reasonable to speak of the world economy because the nations of the world do relate to each other economically.
