JOINT VENTURE: An activity undertaken by two or more entities in which each entity has some degree of control. Joint ventures are commonly undertaken by two or more business firms, allowing each firm to participate in the benefits of the venture without the loss of control that would come from a formal merger of the firms. For example, a bank and a computer company might undertake a joint venture to develop a computerized, online payment system. Joint ventures are usually risky activities and often related to the development of new technology.

The Wide, Wide World Of FOREIGN TRADE

Two blocks directly south of the Mega-Mart Discount Emporium we'll find that Natural Ned's Nursery and Garden Center is having a grand opening celebration. I'd like to saunter over to check out their sundials -- a valuable, and long sought after acquisition for my backyard garden. In fact, Natural Ned's Nursery and Garden Center has a new shipment of sundials imported from the sundial capital of the world -- the Republic of Northwest Queoldiola. If I'm going to get a sundial, I should get the best, right? Northwest Queoldiola produces the finest, least expensive, and most technologically advanced sundials in the world. However, Mega-Mart Discount Warehouse Super Center has an ample supply of good old American-made sundials. They're a little more expensive and not quite as good, but they're made in the U. S. of A. by good old Americans. What a dilemma!
