Lotus Rental Car wants to reduce expenses and increase their consumer base by adding new fuel efficient and alternative fuel vehicles to the Lotus fleet if these measures would be profitable. Key problems With the high demand for car rentals, and having more ecologically aware consumers, keeping alternative fuel vehicles in stock has been difficult. Hertz Rental Car Corporation has 4,000 hybrids throughout the United States, rents the hybrids for more money and still has a higher demand than supply. The demand for the hybrids has jumped 40% in the last year. Because of high consumer demand, auto manufacturers do not offer big discounts to commercial accounts.

ECON545: Project 2—Macroeconomic Analysis By Shawn M. Gilliam Professor Peterson 4/17/15 Looking at the decision of Melanin Car Manufacturing Company expanding their operations to meet the increasing demand from car manufacturers to produces parts for the auto industry. After strong research in various areas to make this expansion successful I concluded that through looking into the industry in the eyes of already profitable plans along with the resources we have there is no way to fail. Three years ago, the nation barely avoided a double-dip recession, after emerging in the second half of 2018 from the longest period of U.S. economic contraction in eight decades. Emerging from the Great Recession, the U.S. economy picked up in 2025 to nearly the level it is
In the early eighties, Hyundai Motor Company created an advertising campaign that appeared in many popular magazines. The advertisement was directed towards the working class who couldn’t afford many extravagant items. The punch line of the ad says that the car looks like a million dollars, therefore suggesting that people have the opportunity to buy a car that is worth more than they will have to pay. This gives them the opportunity to own a “superior” product that they would never have had the chance to buy. The article, “The Parable of the Democracy of Goods”, by Roland Marchand states that by convincing middle class consumers of the desirability of the “best” products and then offering those products at an affordable price, the middle class can have those same luxuries.

Although the 20s brought new ideas, these ideas might not always have been in the interest of providing a free nation for all and indeed may have caused increase hatred in society. The first world war did not directly damage American society and in fact was beneficial as demand for American goods increased. As a result of this there was a huge amount of technological and industrial progress. An example of this is the motor car industry which provided huge amounts of freedom. The Ford production line meant that prices could be kept low and this, coupled with a generous credit system, led to huge numbers of cars being sold; in 1929 there was one car for every five Americans.
Therefore, status symbols are very important. Companies worldwide manufacture status symbols because American consumers want them. In the summary of “Masters of Desire”, a Cadillac example was used as a status symbol. It was explained how the Cadillac fell behind in the European market for prestige cars but when they came out with advertisements for a new car called the Allante, they priced it as a top of the line Mercedes Benz automobile from Europe. Mercedes Benz was known for its luxury cars really well since the 1960’s.
As the nation’s, and probably the world’s, largest company, Walmart has revolutionized the way Americans shop. Walmart provides a one-stop shop where you can buy any item needed for the lowest price available. They have become an example to the industry on how to be a successful company. However, in order to obtain and maintain all of this success, Walmart had to change some of America’s business principals, which has not been beneficial for the country in the long run. Walmart’s low prices are a direct result of their outsourcing of jobs, which negatively affects the United States’ economy, even though may seem beneficial.
The used car market provide a chance to link this two generation together – “baby boomers” can sell their used cars to “echo boomers”. In this situation, “echo boomers” can get their cars with prices that are more affordable, and “baby boomers” can earn money after retiring and also buy another cars for themselves to drive -- they might want to change cars with a lower price too. In this way, the used car can easily bring “baby boomers” and “echo boomers” together. What’s more, the large demand in this second-hand car market can drive the equilibrium price rise, and my business can make profits from
