RESPONSE:

1. I need help in determining what factors should be considered when determining the most favorable financial structure for a global business? Can you please give me some examples?

This is indeed a complex question and not even the experts agree on what determines the most favorable financial or corporate structure for any business, including a global business. Therefore, I located two articles that deal with this controversial issue for you to read to draw on. There are examples of the kinds of considerations that a manager would need to consider when setting up the financial structure (i.e., corporate leverage and financial ratios, debt ratios, agency cost, and the likes) for a global business.
