There was an impressive drop in the unemployment rate during Reagan’s administration as well. 17 million new jobs were created and the unemployment rate fell from 9.7% to 5.5% by the time Reagan’s presidential term ended (Niskanen & Moore 1996). The hours worked by working aged adults grew during
The Tariff placed high taxes on imports leading to a decline in international trade. The United States held many loans with European countries that began to default. Reduction in international market spending in the US, coupled with the high tariffs placed on foreign countries led to unemployment abroad and foreign countries were forced to impose their own tariffs on other countries (Kelly, n.d.).

John majors government came into office after the downfall of Margret Thatcher, which ultimately created divisions within the party. Not only did the party suffer from the internal conflict but also faced the problems of the recession after the ‘Lawson boom’. In order to stabilise the economy he joined the ERM getting a good deal but ultimately resulting in ‘black Wednesday’ causing Major to raise interest rates to 15%. This was political suicide and he soon lost the support of the press we had once relied so much on to get re-elected in 1992. The housing market also plummeted leading to negative equity, which the majority of the working class could not afford resulting in the repossession of their houses combined with the drastic increase in unemployment Britain was in a mess.
How important was the decline of Britain’s staple industries in explaining the industrial unrest of the period between 1918-1929? The quick decline of the staple industries had a huge effect among Britain, it accounted for almost half of Britain’s total out put, a quarter of employment and three quarters of exports before 1914. Through out 1920’s unemployment remained at about 10- 20%of an insure workforce where as Britain’s share of the world export trade fell from 18-11% and a drop in value also in overseas investments, which of course left Britain struggling to pay for imports. London was no longer the undisputed financial capital of the world and as the US replaced Britain as the world money lender, the US dollar displaced the pound as the world’s major currency. However there were a few positive developments along side the bad, for example in the 1920’s new industries were introduced of the second industrial revelation, electrical goods, chemicals and motor car production through the mid 20’s was higher by three times than its year of 1914, these where among the products and services that Britain Introduced in an effort to revitalise and flourish Britain’s industries.
Most of these economic factors change depending on the country as the each country’s economic activities throughout the country such as the Increase or decrease in inflation (the rate at which prices are going up), recession - a significant decline in activity across the economy, lasting longer than a few months, GDP (Gross domestic product), interest rates - high interest rates are good for people saving but bad for people taking out and paying back loans such as mortgages as it costs more but it has not changed for 3 years and taxes such as corporate, income etc. All these individual factors influence any decision a business makes (Tesco).

This means that the prices for stock were too high, far higher than they were really worth, then they fell drastically. People who had borrowed money to buy high-priced stocks (intending to sell the stocks at a profit and repay lenders), went bankrupt. That’s further expounding on what I said about buying on margin. Black Tuesday also marks the beginning of the great depression (Regan3). Living conditions during this time were unsanitary and horrible.
As seen on the income statement by accounts receivable and annual credit sales Amazon was able to decrease the amount of days it took to collect on accounts receivable. The financial state of Amazon at this point of review, as some concerns with common stock outstanding, this led to the period in which the income statement shows a $-39 million dollar on net income. In 2012 sales did increase only due to more electronic transactions, new innovative Internet transactions and the rise in shipping costs, due to this there was a significant rise in prices of the products that Amazon sells.

That balance slowly adjusted over the next 20 years due to reduced production. The price of gas peaked at the end of that cycle in 2008 at $12.69 /mmBtu (millions of British Thermal Units) based on the Henry Hub Natural Gas Front Month Futures (a standard for finding the pricing point of natural gas). However, because of the economic crisis and the emerging shale gas market, the price lowered to $6.50 between 2008 and 2010. The quickly expanding market increased supply so much that it hit a low price of $1.82/mmBtu in 2010. It has averaged $3.50/mmBtu in recent years due to new fracking technologies and government subsidies (McElroy, Lu, 2013).
