Social Responsibility Company Q seems to currently have an economic attitude toward social responsibility. An economic model is based on the traditional concept of business. If the business is providing a quality good or service, showing a profit and providing jobs then it is successful. Company Q is more concerned with profits and lost revenues then maximizing a positive impact. They have shown this by closing a few stores in a higher-crime-rate area because they were losing money, by only offering a very limited amount of health-conscience and organic products because they are high margin items and by declining to donate to the local food bank because of worries over lost revenues.
This is when the objective of the firm is achieving as high a total revenue as possible and occurs when marginal revenue is equal to zero, as shown on the graph. Another objective of a firm may be profit satisficing, where a firm makes a reasonable level of profit that satisfies its stakeholders without maximising profit. Examples of this in the leisure market may include businesses that have only just set up, as they perhaps do not have the work force to maximise profits yet and instead settle for a satisfying level of profit. The final objective of a business may be utility maximisation. Utility maximisation is the aim of trying to achieve as much satisfaction as possible.
In the short run firms may not increase their profits because the cuts in prices but if they achieve this in long run they may experience maxim profits. However the directors try to imply polices which do not always maximize the profits their objective is to satisfy the owners by getting some profit and growing the company in order to receive bigger market share to influence prices and quantity produced. I think that the managers should firstly try to grow the company and work for normal profit and maybe in long run obtain super normal profits. In short run they try to achieve lots of other objectives regardless profit
An example of this could be social security benefits. These motivations help the company recruit top level employees and increase their overall productivity. But this can be a trade-off as these benefits and rewards can be costly. Takeaway 2 - Corporate Culture, Human Resources, and Ethics Zappos is a great example of a company that has created a lively atmosphere for their workers through their casual working environment. But another takeaway is that this type of culture is not compatible with many companies.
Of course, this is not the case. These companies are for-profit companies with nothing but profit and the bottom line in mind. The amount of profit depends on how much the contract pays as opposed to how much of that money is spent on salaries, facilities, security, and training. The less output, the greater the profit. Governments have always justified such contracting as a means of saving taxpayer dollars and private prisons have historically been able to operate on less money thus saving taxpayer dollars.
The advertising variance is negligible. However, the unfavorable price variance and the favorable efficiency variance show that even though advertising campaigns are expensive, they produce the results. The entity has a proven track record of highly efficient advertising, so it should increase advertisement funding to boost sales. It is recommended to be more conservative with its advertising budget until there is a strong marketing plan in place with the intention that all advertising and marketing funds are made more efficient. Another action plan would be to reduce the cost of advertising.
Roosevelt felt some trusts were integral to the economy, and actually worked to preserve them. The way Roosevelt saw it, trusts that increased the prices of their products purely to increase profit margins weren’t helpful in any way, however trusts that kept reasonable prices and benefitted the economy could be considered positive. Hoping to disband bad trusts
found "robust evidence that raising the New York minimum ... significantly reduced employment rates of less-skilled, less-educated New Yorkers. "Therefore, the companies will always fire that are fewer skills and educated. It directly causes people who are less educated do not have any choice to get rid of their hard lives. However, some people argue that increasing minimum wage is a good thing to do because
According to Colander (2010), “Lazy monopolists are not profit maximizers; they see to it that they make enough profit so that the stockholders aren’t squealing, but they don’t push as hard as they could to hold their costs down. They perform as efficiently as is consistent with keeping their jobs. The result is what economists call X-inefficiency (firms operating far less efficiently than they could technically)” (p. 388). The lazy monopolist lack profits in the long run because they are simply content with the forceful hold that they have on the market today. They are not efficiently doing more to create profits in the long run but just doing enough to survive and restrain competition in the market today.
People who have high income don’t always worry about the price of products because they can afford it and in result don’t think a second about shoplifting. This being known the author wanted to target to a low income audience because they could relate to the author and be able to understand her point more. The message or the purpose that the author is trying to send to the low income audience is that they should not have to spend their hard earn money but instead shoplift as a way of protesting to big corporations to show them that they need to lower prices or they will end up losing more profit than actually lowering their
