Hello, I am looking for someone to write an essay on Third Parties: The Wal-Mart Chain or Retail Store. It needs to be at least 500 words.
Mexico bribed the officials of the Mexican government systematically over the years in order to win permission for their quick and massive expansion through the Mexican market. These bribes, totaling to 24 million dollars, facilitated quick opening of new stores by the company vastly in such a way that would be impossible had the company opted for strict adherence to Mexican laws. This is an accounting fraud, and the management of the company tried to cover it up. In fact, the company took the manager of Mexican stores, one Mr. Eduardo Castro-Wright, to become the vice president of the head Quarters branch in the United States, as a promotion for the exemplary work he performed in Mexico by expanding the stores much faster, which was mainly during the scandal period. In fact, the company did not make any investigations over the scandal, until one Sergio Cicero Zapata, came out in the open and conducted a fifteen-hour on-the-record interview with the New York Times. The publication on the New York Times, implicating various senior managers of the firm over the scandal, is what prompted the store o to commence investigations on the scandal, which was a violation of the United States laws, such as the “Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.” As such, there was no much involvement of third parties in this scandal, as the executive team wanted of the company wanted to cover it up in order to protect the image of the company. This is evident through the appointment of the then CEO of Wal Mart de Mexico as the vice president of Wal mart global instead of opening legal proceedings against him. The company began investigations into the scandal when it heard of its existence, especially because the Mexican branch was hiding the bribery acts from the headquarters, but shut it down systematically after realizing its existence, and the violation of both Mexican and US laws. .
