From the Paper:

"Organizational behavior and activity is predominantly based on the type of entity it wishes to become and the environment that it works within. Local and national markets serve to shape the overall production goals and services for an organization. The impact of state run or mixed market governments may serve to catalyze or limit an organizations specific strengths. External market factors also impact strategic planning and provides feedback to organizations in ways to develop competitive advantage and maintaining supply and demand factors. Ultimately, the simplified economic market provided by the European Union may serve to help the United Kingdom in returning to the international stage as a economic powerhouse, as it provides the necessary benefits of cost reduction and the emphasis on competition and free-market principles that embody the United Kingdom."
