Bibliografía sobre Empresas

Si estás en la Facultad de Administración de Empresas es imprescindible que conozcas lo que significa una empresa, pues hasta la palabra forma parte del nombre de la facultad. Pero más allá de su definición (“unidad de organización dedicada a actividades industriales, mercantiles o de prestación de servicios con fines lucrativos”), según la Real Academia Española, la palabra empresa o negocio implica la labor titánica de aportar al beneficio de la sociedad desde un campo específico.

Por otro lado, la palabra industria significa el “conjunto de procedimientos ordenados y metódicos que emplea el hombre para transformar las primeras materias en objetos útiles para la satisfacción de sus necesidades”. (1) Es decir, una industria se compone de muchas empresas. Las empresas Ferrari, General Motors, Honda, Nissan, Tesla y Toyota son algunas de las que componen la industria automotriz.

El empresarismo como tema está ligado a términos tales como empresa, economía, estructuras de mercado, entre otros. Allen y Meyer (2007), [2] definen empresarismo como “el proceso de reconocer una oportunidad, probarla en el mercado y reunir los recursos necesarios para entrar en un negocio”. Asimismo señalan que la economía estudia la forma como las personas usan sus escasos recursos para satisfacer sus ilimitados deseos (Allen & Meyer, 2007, p. 7). No todo el mundo es empresario o empresaria pero la actitud empresarial permite identificar a quien realmente lo es.

Hay leyes, instituciones y actividades que formulan las decisiones económicas de un país. Preguntas respecto a (1) cuáles son los bienes y servicios, (2) el volumen en que estos deben producirse, (3) para quién y (4) cómo han de producirse son imprescindibles para determinar el sistema económico de un  país. Algunos sistemas económicos son:

  • El tradicional basado en la agricultura y el trueque
  • Sistema de mercado puro basado en la oferta y la demanda
  • Sistemas económicos planificados (ej. Antigua Unión Soviética)
  • Economías mixtas (ej. Estados Unidos, Unión Europea)

El sistema de libre empresa (capitalismo o economía de mercado) es indicativo de los países democráticos en el cual, según Allen y Meyer (2007), las personas pueden elegir: qué productos comprar, poseer propiedad privada y comenzar una empresa para competir con otras. La ganancia como incentivo y el papel de la competencia son retos para cualquier empresa. Seguramente en tus clases –o en el día a día- evidencias el tipo y grado de competencia característico de las empresas que operan en la misma industria. A esto se le llama estructura de mercado, como por ejemplo el monopolio y el oligopolio.

Si ya conoces los conceptos de economía básicos tales como (1) bienes y servicios, (2) factores de producción -tierra, trabajo, empresarismo y capital-, (3) escasez y (4) teoría de la oferta y la demanda, entonces comprenderás el arduo trabajo de los empresarios en la economía. No obstante, a su favor, los empresarios y las empresarias pueden entender el estado de la economía y predecir los posibles cambios si estudian los indicadores económicos como es: la tasa de empleo, la confianza de los consumidores y el Producto Interno Bruto (PIB). El PIB es “el valor total en el mercado de los bienes y servicios producidos por los trabajadores y el capital de una nación durante un periodo determinado” (Allen & Meyer, 2007, p. 14).

Sin lugar a dudas el aporte de los empresarios es de importancia cardinal para el crecimiento económico. Generar empleos y aumentar la producción es el resultado del esfuerzo y la dedicación de todo buen empresario. Los vídeos contenidos en la bibliografía a continuación te ilustrará el panorama de las empresas a través de varias situaciones y también interesantes estudios de caso. Encontrarás la bibliografía segmentada y agrupada acorde a un tema en particular. Podrás evaluar el recurso según su descripción (en inglés) y su ubicación, acorde al Catálogo en Línea.

Your job as a manager is not to come up with solutions–it is to be the architect of an organization that comes up with solutions. You will thereby develop the strength to persevere and prosper, while others lose themselves in the struggle of just trying to keep up.

Discuss two important economists of this era: John Maynard Keynes, who advocated government intervention to control the booms and busts of capitalist economies, and Friedrich von Hayek, who argued that government intervention in the economy would erode human freedom and was doomed to failure. Episode two: illustrates how economies with strict governmental control encountered serious trouble in the 1980s and how many leaders embraced the idea of “shock therapy,” a rapid conversion to free-market capitalism. The program focuses in detail on how reform played out in several countries: Russia, Poland, India, Bolivia, and Chile, as they lived through the upheavals of rapid change, dealing with both the new freedoms and the new dangers of privatization, deregulation, and competition. Episode three: examines the promises and perils of globalization in the 1990s, focusing on the story of President Clinton’s embrace of free-trade policies, the challenges the world’s leaders faced in taming the virulent contagion of financial collapse in the developing world, and the strong opposition to globalization that surfaced in protests against the policies of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. Covers the years from the 1992 U.S. presidential election to the September 11 terrorist attacks.
