The CAGE distance network

1) Apply the CAGE distance network to compare GM in the US with China. Use GlobalEdge.msu.edu to research China.

2) Examine GM’s financials. How important are non-US sales to GM? What implications does this have for GM’s global and business strategy? Which of the integration response frameworks is best suited
for GM’s global strategies in China?
