Prompt: You are an executive for a multinational tobacco company that wishes to bring the joy of American tobacco products to the previously closed, but potentially highly profitable, Taiquat market. The Taiquat government official who must issue the order allowing your ships to unload refuses to do so unless you pay him a specific amount of money. You initially refuse to do so; now you have learned that the Taiquat government does not pay such officials a salary, so the officials resort to negotiating a price with the incoming companies such as yours in order to make a living. Discuss your options and justify your final decision.
