The key question that the author is addressing is whether or not businesses will lose profit or be forced to shut down. The most important information in this article is NFL Sundays account for 1/3 of businesses income in a given year, the study highlighting the potential impact of a canceled NFL season, and the effect an NFL lockout would have on small businesses. The main conclusion is that a season without football would severely impact small businesses. If we take a look at this, the implications are some businesses would lose as much as $750,000 in gross income for the year, each NFL city stands to lose about $160 million in revenue and lose 115,000 jobs, and the impact of the American economy would be much deeper. While we look at this argument, revolving primarily around profit loss, it will greatly impact our nation’s economy and have a massive effect of small businesses, and possibly put some out of business.
What is unclear is had Mexico focused on a repayment plans via their own means resulting in financial stabilization or future financial unrest. Part of the preceding factors contributing to the accumulation of debt and bailout was due to large loans being made to private business sectors, investor insecurity due to “Zapatista Army of National Liberation declared war on the Mexican government…” (2016, Wikipedia) and Mexico’s fixed exchange rate. It is unclear had Mexico completed financial restricting if that would have absolved the countries citizens from experiencing a spike in poverty and hyperinflation. It would have avoided the country’s finances from being controlled by foreign banks but a benefit of Mexico’s economy being controlled by foreign banks was regaining investors’ confidence. Due to the preceding factors that contributed to Mexico’s financial crisis it appears the bailout was a correlation not a cause of the short term negative financial impacts on its citizens.
The Effects of Outsourcing on the Economy In recent years, outsourcing has become an increasingly popular alternative for some of the largest corporations in North America, who are looking for inexpensive ways of lowering overall costs. Outsourcing, which is the relocation of jobs to other foreign countries, has become a controversial new way of doing business.

Abstract This essay is mainly analyze the contention raised by the corporate law professor Justin O’Brien, which is, changes to the regulation of financial system participants will not mitigate a future global financial crisis, but rather a change in ethical standards is required. Moreover, follow by the discussion of O’Brien’s statement, there is a judgment that whether it is possible to devise a global regime of ethical behavior that will adequately address the problems exposed in the global financial market. 1. Introduction Along with the development of globalization, everything in this world is connected more closely especially the economy, such as the global financial crisis is evolving from the American financial crisis in 2008.

The book “The Coming Jobs War” describes it as “30 million Americans are fighting a war – a war for jobs – that they won’t win. And the 18 million with no hope are dead and critically wounded.” “Joblessness is the strongest core driver of national
Moreover, I would like to know how a natural disaster in another nation can impact our economy here. Not to mention how changes in unemployment impacted the housing markets decline. Housing Market I really haven’t kept up with the economy like I should; however, I have heard a lot regarding the housing market and its decline.

Unemployment and Its Impact On American Cities Michael Collins Marygrove College Abstract The United States, its cities, and regions for decades have been trying to maintain low unemployment rates.

Politicians have employed many strategies and ideologies to help regulate the unemployment rate. Unfortunately, over the past 10 years these strategies and ideologies have failed.
For this reason, this topic of research is extremely significant as a minimum wage hike is sensitive to the livelihoods of millions and, it questions whether it is a safe political instrument for economic development. Typically, the common textbook argument in economics is that when a minimum wage increase is implemented it impedes the economy by prompting a higher unemployment in the country. However, after scrutinizing the experiments and analysis conducted by economists surrounding this topic, it is proven that this textbook argument is invalid in developed countries, specifically in Canada and the United States. In fact, a minimum wage hike significantly drives consumer spending from increased household income at a cost
The United States is currently digging its way out of the worst recession in recent history. Government spending and deficits have reached staggering highs while the current tax system has had both sides of the isle up in arms, and calling for reform. The US needs a means of generating enough revenue to begin to truly tackle its mounting deficit, while at the same time encouraging growth in the private sector and catering to a public still hurting from the economic downturn. The solution may lie within the value added tax. The value added tax or VAT is a consumption based tax that is widely used throughout many industrialized nations.
