The paper "Anticipatory Industry Policies to Facilitate the Implementation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership" is an outstanding example of a business case study. The anticipatory policy is based on forecasting at future incidents and conditions that are meant to happen. The anticipatory policy provides a concise picture that looking far into the future and instituting preventive actions will help to improve administrative efficiency, eliminate political embarrassment and shame and also help reduce costs. (O'riordan, 1989, p. p115). It is now generally recognized and agreed that a lot of money and damage to the environment can be minimized in the event that decisions and policies are all aimed to forestall negative environmental effects just prior to the implementation of such policies.
The policy is majorly based on the much need to act on the warnings of future opportunities and threats through implementing positive political action. The anticipatory policies are aimed at becoming proactive to both the environmental and political influences that would otherwise become destructive if not monitored before their implementation. This paper thus sets out to discuss different industry policies that would be changed so as to facilitate the implementation of the trans-pacific partnership agreement. In order to facilitate the implementation of trans-pacific partnership, most anticipatory industry policies must be flexible enough so as to accommodate the changes that keep on arising and also to meet the differing demands of different trade partners.
Some of the policies include; policies that effectively and actively promote human health and the total well-being of the human capital. This policy would also encompass protecting the living resource base, adopting a settlement pattern that aims at conserving the environment, and also modes of transport and systems of trade and consumption that are all aimed at the protection of the natural resources and the environment(International Union for Conservation of Nature, 1996, p.
40). The natural resource forms the basis on which most of the production takes place. Huma capital is the force that converts the raw materials into finished and tradable products for export purposes to partner countries. As opposed to looking at the human capital as cost centers, the partner countries should invest in improving the quality of the human capital.
The quality refers to both the level of training and education as well as the social, mental, physical and economic well-being of a person or labor as a factor of production. This will enhance the long-term profitability that will occur to the trade partners as opposed to having a narrow focus on the human capital. The policies that are aimed at making use of residual wastes economically not just policies that aim at recycling, reducing and reducing the waste product disposal to the environment. The policies that go beyond mere waste management practices should be anticipated.
Also policies such as those aimed at creating alternative markets to the waste products or converting them to more useful and important end products. This is as opposed to the traditional methods of releasing the wastes to the environment. In this way, people become more proactive and environmentally aware (Blakeney, 2014, p. 13). These policies ensure that the environment remains more sustainable and more profitable in the long term as opposed to short term profitability that would arise to an individual country.
Instituting policies aimed at reducing the introduction of wastes into the environment help in the waste management both at the present time and those that are forecasted to happen in the future(International Union for Conservation of Nature, 1996). Creating new more markets for the anticipated wastes to the environment will mean less pollution to the environment in the future time. Ensuring that there are proper channels for the management of the waste products will ensure that in all the participating partners, a clear and concise channel is identified that will inform the manner in which all the effluents are properly managed for the long term profitability and sustainability of the environment, both to man and other creatures that wholly depend on the natural environments to survive (Elms & Lim, 2012, p. 20).
