A group of Native Americans is negotiating a land trade with the federal government. The federal government wants to build a navy airbase on lands were ancestral remains of the Native Americans are buried. The Native Americans have offered a different portion of the land.

Xerox Corp. manufactured parts for copy machines in the U.S. that were shipped to Mexico for assembly. The copiers were designed to be sold to Latin America and did not operate on U.S. electric current.  The copiers, after assembly, were kept in U.S. customs warehouses pending sale to Latin America.  These goods were free of import duty by federal law.  The city of Houston, Texas, assessed these copiers with a local property tax.  Xerox sued to have this tax declared unconstitutional.  Under these facts, the court would likely rule:

  1. That Xerox must pay all this tax because state/local governments have taxing powers just like the U.S.
  2. That Xerox must pay only one-half since state/local governments are one-half partners with the federal government.
  3. That this law is preempted by federal law. (Name of article)
  4. That Xerox must pay the full tax, but the state of Texas must forward a pro rata share to the federal government.

A shirt manufacturer lost 45 percent of its market share last year. The CEO put together a committee to find out what was wrong. He included office staff and vendors. He did not include any current or former customers. Did the CEO make a mistake?

  1. Yes, because he did not include key stakeholders. (Name of article)
  2. No, because that action would slow down the process.
  3. Yes, because he failed to find the facts.
  4. No, because that action would narrow the focus.
