Therefore, if when a consumer enters a store and sees similarly priced products, one imported and one made domestically, they can choose a US made product without feeling as if they are overpaying for the same product. Many American consumers would like to purchase American products but if American products are considerably priced higher than imports, it will make it a difficult decision. Since the protective tariffs would even the playing field for the consumer, it would be a beneficial implementation. 2. Point #2: Tariffs protect American jobs and wages.
For example, if the banks are allowed to lower their reserves, they can make more money available for lending to potential home buyers. This would result in a decrease in interest rates and encourage borrowers to shop for homes (Mankiw, p. 654). There are times, such as now, when interest rates are low in an attempt to stimulate the economy when buyers may still be fearful of the commitment simply because the future of the economy is so
It also shows some other possible objectives for the firm. Sales revenue maximisation, for example, occurs when marginal revenue is equal to zero, as the next unit produced would carry a negative marginal revenue and hence reduce total revenue. The point where the volume of sales of the good are maximised subject to making at least normal profit is also shown (at the point where AR=AC). An Diagram Possible objectives of the firm I Profit maximisation may become
Why do Keynesian economists believe market forces do not automatically adjust for unemployment and inflation? What is their solution for stabilizing economic fluctuations? Why do they believe changes in government spending affect the economy differently than changes in income taxes? Keynes theorized that when unemployment raises the amount of goods that are in demand by countries citizens decreases and as these demands decrease the amount of output by the countries manufactures also decreases. As the demand for one product decreases it can cause a chain reaction lowering the demand for products needed to produce the first product.
This action will help the company down the road as fewer liabilities will result in less cash outflow, and place the company in a position to manage through the construction downturn. Another upside in the balance sheet was that The Home Depot has reported a $63 million dollar increase in stock holder´s equity. This information will be used by potential lenders or investors to determine if this company is worth the investment. In this case, it appears that The Home Depot would be a good credit risk, based on the latest
congress made a decision to enact a plan that would re-grow the economy. The idea is in the near future the consumers who were affected by the sub-prime lending practices that put homeowners in over the top would begin to feel relief from the unpaid loans provided. In turn, those consumers would begin to spend frivolously again. However, the plan does not account for the average consumer like me. I work two jobs and maintain my financial responsibility.
Another influence is what they hold in a current account could be considered a deficit which means the country is spending more on foreign trade than it is receiving. This creates a supply of their own currency than a demand for its products. According to our text, Mankiw, (2007) 1. Consumers are wealthier, which stimulates the demand for consumption goods. 2.
During recession Innocent would mostly want to survive. In order to survive they may think of lending money from banks. To borrow money they need to prepare a balance sheet over a period of time and the bank will make their decision based on the balance sheet. If they find out that Innocent would not be able to pay the money back then they would not allow Innocent to borrow which can
Evaluate the opinion that green belt (areas of land protected from urbanisation) land should be loosened to allow more house building in the U.K. (25 marks) (Use diagrams to help illustrate) There are many opinions on whether green belt land should be loosened to allow more house building in the U.K, some economists believe that it should be loosened, where others think the benefits wouldn’t outweigh the costs. If green belt land were to be freed up then it would mean there could be more houses built. As shown in the diagram on the right, an increase in supply would mean that the prices of houses would decrease. This could be a big benefit for the local economy as it would help first-time buyers to get onto the property
I believe there is correlation between performance and motivation x ability, but I think another factor has to be considered as well. In order to achieve peak performance you need to add opportunity or environmental factors. You certainly need the desire and commitment first as well as the ability, but without the opportunity to achieve or someone to give you a chance to perform you will not achieve your peak performance level. A few examples come to mind. A real estate agent can have motivation x ability, but the economic collapse of the housing market is going to inhibit that person’s peak performance by no fault of their own.
