Edmonds Community College Gender Restrictive Labor Laws Response

For this second response paper (and please note there are just two, not three as originally indicated in the syllabus) you get to choose- read a journal article and write a response paper. Or watch a short film and write a response paper. In both cases your paper guidelines are similar to last time: read the article/watch the film and explain the social and economic significance, with an emphasis on economic analysis. In 2-3 pages (space and a half) you should:

  • briefly summarize the article
  • explain the economic issues in the article- what topics are addressed and what do they mean in terms of the article
  • your opinion of the topic and what it might mean for the future
  • anything else you wish to add

CHAP30 Globalization and the Wealth of America Import Restrictions Paper

Question 4 chapters 30

Until recently, American cars exported to Japan had driver controls on the left side (as in the United States), even though Japanese cars sold in Japan have driver controls on the right side, because the Japanese (like the British) drive on the left side of the road. Su pose the Japanese tried to sell their cars in the United States with the driver controls on the right side. What impact would this likely have on their sales in this country? Do you think the unwillingness of American carmakers to put the driver controls on the correct side for exports to Japan had any effect on their sales of cars in that country?

Question 1 chapter 31

Who gains and who loses from import restrictions?

Reasons for Increasing the Minimum Wage Paper

Each student will choose a macroeconomic issue, explaining its extent, causes, and consequences. When appropriate, the paper should propose concrete policy proposals that could alleviate, if not entirely solve, the problem. The political feasibility of these policies and their budgetary impact must also be addressed. Statements of fact, analyses, and policy conclusions must be based on reliable data, official reports from well-respected sources (governments, international organizations), and articles published in peer-reviewed academic journals

Topic I chose is-

Should we raise the minimum wage? Why or Why not

I attached an outline I made to make it a bit easier and put you down the right path,

-Paper must be 1000 words double spaced

-Paper must include direct source support so quotes from references

-Paper must include detailed work cited

Southern New Hampshire University U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s EDGAR database Paper

Milestone One, you selected an organization to analyze from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s EDGAR database and received approval and feedback from your instructor on your proposal. In Milestone Two, you submitted a draft of the policy research report and received feedback. Now, for Milestone Three of your final project, you will apply the economic principles you have examined through the first seven weeks of the course to your chosen organization by submitting a draft of the organizational analysis report.

Based on instructor feedback and direction to this milestone, you will revise your organizational analysis report for the final submission of the policy research and organizational analysis report in Module Nine.

Your analysis of your chosen organization must address the following elements:

I. Organizational Impact and Recommendations:

A. Organization Introduction: What organization is the focus of your report, the sub-industry or type of organization it belongs to (home care,

hospital, etc.), and what is the financial background of the organization?

B. Nonprofit or For-Profit: Is the organization you selected a nonprofit or a for-profit? What differences will this make in terms of economic policy

impact?

II. Financials, Market, and Demand:

A. Demand Theory: Explain how demand theory is reflected in the organizational financial statements.

B. Market Behavior Impact: Explain how and why market behavior affects the financial statements at various times throughout the calendar year

for your organization.

III. Economic Legislative Changes:

A. Legislative Changes: Considering the economic and legislative changes you researched, what changes are most likely to impact your

organization, and why?

B. Policy Changes and Impact: Considering the legislative changes and type of organization you have selected, what possible organizational policies

may result? Discuss the possible resulting policy changes that may occur within the organization. What is, or will be, the impact of these policy

and legislative changes on your organization?

C. Statement Impact: In what ways would you expect to see the financial statements to be impacted because of these changes, and why?

D. Potential Disparities: Would the legislative changes cause disparities in care that could further impact your organization, or that your

organization could plan to combat? How would you recommend planning for these?

Guidelines for Submission: Your report should be in APA format and all resources and references should be cited appropriately. A well-written, concise report will fall within the range of 4–6 pages, not including a title and reference page.

Then move on to describe the educational barriers for Syrian refugee children to access primary and secondary education in the 5 countries highlighted in the 1st paper:

Write at least one paragraph for each country. End the section by writing one paragraph or 2 about the complexities of education in emergencies. And another paragraph of the value of education for Syrian refugee children. Use this source;

***** Theory (Economic Theory)

***** Literature Review

In this section all want you to write paragraph of the papers, where you highlight name of the auther (year) what is it about? Focus on the study finings/results. I need at least 7 literatures.

you can use some of the literature of this research; http://nextstepintegral.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Integral-approaches-to-education-Gidley-Hampson-.pdf

***** Methodology

The proposed methodology that the study will carry out is integral approach. Write about what’s the integral approach? What does it capture? What is the uneqness about this economic approach? How this approach is going to help in exmaing and solving the situation with educational matters for refugee children.

Cuyamaca College Economics Flow Demand and Supply Questions

-Please submit your compiled and revised learning portfolio using one of the following programs/formats: Microsoft Word/.doc, Open Office/.odt, or Adobe Acrobat/.pdf

Follow the directions for each individual assignment closely

-Use your best writing skills. There are no length requirements for the individual assignments

-BE HONEST! Do not work with other students on this assignment or copy things from the internet. This will result in an immediate “zero” grade on the assignment.

Chapter 2 questions:

To show that you understand how comparative advantage works in the modern economy, please discuss a good you recently purchased and address the following prompts:

    1. What is the item, and how much did you pay for it?
    2. What is a reasonable estimate of how long it would take you to make the item if you hadn’t been able to buy it? You need to come up with a number of hours or days or years, or whatever time measurement you want, for how long it would take you. Don’t try to avoid this. If you can’t figure it out, pick another good.
    3. Who worked to get the money to pay for the item, and how long did they have to work to get the money? If your money came from the government, see the how the government gets money page.
    4. Based on your answers to 2 and 3 above, was it rational to buy the good? Explain. Make sure you compare the time it would take you to make the good (mentioned in part 2) and the amount of time that had to be worked to get the money (mentioned in part 3). It is only rational to buy something if you give up less resources working to earn money to pay, than you would have if you made the good yourself. If it turned out to be irrational, why did you buy it?

    Chapter 3 questions:In chapter 3 we learn that the supply and demand for a good or service can shift in response to changes in certain variables, and about how supply and demand interact to determine the market equilibrium price.

    1. Please identify a price change you have observed in the last few years.
    2. Use the supply and demand model to explain why the price changed in 1) above.
    3. Summarize your explanation with one sentence that mentions what you think has happened to both supply and demand,and why, and how this interaction has resulted in the price change you observed. If both curves are moving, you will need to comment on the relative size of each shift to justify the price change you observed.

    *Please do not try to explain the price of gas or a cell-phone; please pick something else.
    Chapter 4 questions:In our everyday lives as consumers we purchase many goods and services, and we derive consumers’ surplus for most of them. With that in mind, please: Identify 3 goods or services you have purchased in the last year, and estimate the amount of consumer surplus you enjoy from those purchases. For each good, please state specifically:

    1. The highest amount you would have been willing to pay.
    2. The price you actually paid.
    3. The amount of consumers’ surplus you received from each item.

    Helpful tips: Be sure to state exactly the highest price you would have been willing to pay, and the price you actually paid. The difference between these two is your consumer’s surplus. There are different phrases you can use to communicate the highest price you were willing to pay, but note that the following are incorrect:

    1. The price you were willing to pay. Just because you were willing to pay $20 for a good, doesn’t mean this is the highest you were willing to pay.
    2. The price you expected to pay. Again, this is not necessarily the highest price you were willing to pay.

    Chapter 4b:

    We are about one quarter of the way through the course. How is it going for you? Are your grades where you want them to be? If not, what can you do to remedy the situation? If you want a different result, it is imperative that you change your strategy.Chapter 5 questions: This chapter focuses on externalities in the context of producing goods and services, but like many concepts in our course, these ideas are very applicable to our daily lives. In this discussion, please:

    1. Identify and describe a situation where you have experienced either a positive or negative externality.
    2. State clearly what the external cost or benefit is.
    3. Estimate the dollar value of the externality. You may not be sure how to do this, so consider asking yourself the following: If it’s a positive externality, what is the highest price you would be willing to pay for the external benefit you received? If it’s a negative externality, what is the lowest price you would be willing to accept as compensation for the external cost you are bearing?
    4. How many people in total are affected by this externality? Recommend either a tax or subsidy amount that the externality creator should pay or receive (to “internalize the externality”) based on the number of people affected. You may assume that everyone affected has the same valuation for the externality as you do.

    Chapter 9 questions: In this chapter on international trade we explained the benefits of trade using the concepts of producer and consumer surplus. We know that trade barriers such as quotas and tariffs cause prices to rise, which reduces consumer surplus, but we also discussed that trade barriers save or create jobs for American workers. In a writing of no more than two pages, please:

    1. identify an imported product that you purchased recently, and estimate the amount of consumer surplus you received from your purchase.
    2. state how much, if any, of your consumer surplus you would be willing to give up if it meant another job could be saved for an American worker.
    3. determine, if you knew that the job saved for the American worker came at the expense of a job for someone in a third-world country, if that would change the amount of consumer surplus (in dollars) you would be willing to give up.
    4. determine, if you knew the surplus you gave up went directly to increase the wage of a worker in a third-world country, if that would change the amount of surplus you would give up.
    5. state whether or not you would change the purchase, and the associated consumer surplus you received, in any way to redistribute the gains you personally received from international trade. If you would have been willing to give up some of the surplus you received if it went directly to the worker in the third world country, would you consider making a donation to a charitable organization benefiting workers that country (this is a way for you to give some of your surplus to the workers)? Why or why not?

    Chapter 10 reflection:We are a little bit more than half of the way through the course. How is it going for you? Are your grades where you want them to be? If not, what adjustments can you make to improve the situation? Please respond to these questions in a writing of less than one page (a paragraph may be sufficient).
    Chapter 11:Although most of the concepts developed in chapter eleven pertain to businesses, many of the different notions of cost can be applied to your life. In a writing of no more than one page, please identify a fixed, variable, marginal, and implicit cost that you have paid in the last few years.
    Chapter 12:Many difficult or important jobs in our society pay surprisingly low wages. For example, babysitters, social workers, nursing home workers, seasonal lifeguards, and paramedics, all typically make around $15 per hour or less, but provide services that can save lives. This phenomenon can be explained via the supply and demand model we developed back in chapter 3, or from related material we learned here in chapter 12 if we view the worker as a business owner selling their labor services.We know that if barriers to entry into an industry are low, then businesses cannot expect to earn long-run profits. This implies that jobs that require little or no training (read: low barriers to entry) should not expect to get paid much.For this chapter’s learning portfolio assignment, please:

    • Identify a job that you think earns surprisingly little given the task(s) performed
    • Discuss the training necessary to get the job
    • Discuss what you think the job “should” earn, and try to justify it
    • What do you think would happen if the government mandated the wage you suggested above? Please apply the lessons from the material on price floors from chapter 4 in your response

    Chapter 13: Many businesses operate in the “monopolistically competitive” environment. As we learned in chapter 13, economic profits are possible in this setting, but only to the extent that a firm can continue to differentiate itself from competing firms or produce goods at a lower cost than competitors. For example, Starbucks recently announced that it plans to offer beer and wine for sale after 4 in the afternoon in some markets. Certainly this differentiates it from other coffee shops.For this chapter’s learning portfolio assignment, please:

    • Identify a business operating in the monopolistic competition setting.
    • List the assumptions of monopolistic competition and explain how the business fits in with these assumptions
    • Suggest a way that this business could differentiate itself from its competition

    Chapter 15a: Please name a good or service you or your family has purchased in recent months from a monopolist. How did the monopoly come to exist? Do you think you would have benefitted from increased competition in the market for this good or service? Why or why not?FINAL QUESTIONS:`To maximize the probability you succeed at the college level, you may benefit from thinking critically about your role in the learning process. With that in mind, please (purely for your own benefit) reflect on your experience in our class, and address the following:

    1. Realistically, how much work did you put into the course? Was it more or less than what you thought you would need to do?
    2. If you would prefer to earn a higher grade than what you are expecting, what could you do in the future to improve your chances of earning that higher grade? Are there any steps you can take to improve your organization? What could you do to make better use of the time you allocate for studying (e.g. take a “study skills” course)? Should you be allocating more time to studying? Should you take fewer classes?
    3. In this course we have used several different methods to try to stimulate learning: book reading, lecture, homework questions, articles and (maybe) videos discussing applications of economic theory, discussion with other students, preparation for quizzes/exams, learning portfolio assignments requiring you to identify economics in your life, and possibly tutoring and/or office hour. Reflecting on these experiences will provide you with useful information about who you are as a student, and what sorts of experiences maximize your ability to learn. So please relax for a minute, reflect on these various exercises, and comment on which you feel worked well for you, and which did not. How can you use this information to improve the likelihood you will succeed in future classes?

Rasmussen College Foreign Exchange and Exchange Rates Questions

We care about foreign exchange and exchange rates for several reasons.

First, purchasing goods and services produced by the labor force in another country generally requires first purchasing the other country’s currency. The buyer sells one’s own currency for the currency of the country with the buyer, or the MNC would like to transact.

Second, MNCs care about the changes in exchange rate because a change in the exchange rate makes payables or receivables in domestic currency smaller or larger regarding their home currency.

Lastly, you the investor care about FX and exchange rates if you have foreign assets in your portfolio. You want to buy currency low and sell high which means you would be interested in the direction and how much exchange rates change.

In this assignment, explain the following in an essay:

  1. A brief summary of how FX markets operate, including the bid-ask spread, cross-exchange rate, and forward rate.
  2. Include at least one example of calculating the forward discount or premium using American term quotations. For simplicity, assume 30 days in each month and use the formula (where ¥ can be any currency, and N = 3 means a 3-month delivery and so days = 90, for example) below. What can you infer from your calculations?Use the prevailing spot rates in your writing and include a corresponding citation so that the calculations are reproducible using your data.
  3. MNCs use three major FX derivatives: forward, futures, and options. Explain why MNCs use them. Identify the purposes of FX derivatives and highlight the differences between them.

Your submission should be at least four pages of analysis plus a reference page in Microsoft Word, APA formatted, and with correct grammar.

Deakin University Road Congestion in Australia Questions

Question 1: (10 marks)

In your own words, summarize the article, “Road Congestion in Australia” by the Australian

Automobile Association, October 2018, available at this link:

https://www.aaa.asn.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/AAA-Congestion-Report-2018-FINAL.pdf.

In particular, what are the main messages of the article? [Hint: Please link your summary with relevant economic theories wherever you can]

Question 2: (10 marks)

Suppose there is a competitive market for road space. The demand for road space falls as the price rises (due to the income and substitution effects). The supply for road space is fixed, which means that the supply curve is vertical. Use appropriate diagrams to answer the following questions:

(a) What is the market price of road space in a competitive equilibrium?

(b) Suppose that road space is a public good, which is freely available to individuals. How much is the excess demand for road space?

(c) Suppose we measure congestion by the amount of excess demand for road space. Can a rise in fuel taxes and car taxes reduce congestion?

(d) Can building more roads reduce congestion? Would your conclusions change if, with more roads, individuals were encouraged to drive more?

Question 3: (10 marks)

Do you think a road-pricing system by charging the use of road space is a good policy to reduce traffic congestion in Australia? Why or why not? Use appropriate diagrams to support your answer. [Hint: Please do literature review to find out the pros and cons of the road-pricing system in terms of economic efficiency and social equity, etc.]

Question 4: (10 marks)

Find two other cities that are among the most congested cities in the world. Give a brief description about the congestion-easing policies in these cities. [Hint: If possible present concrete facts and figures]. Provide your views or suggestions on the best measure/policy to reduce road congestion in Australia.

Students must correctly use the Harvard style of referencing.
