  • Demand Curve - 1,251 words
    Demand Curve People looking to trade in their old car for money off of their new car become discouraged with the low trade in value, and decide either not to buy a new car at all or to buy a cheaper model. The lower car sales is a reduction in demand, because the decrease in resale value of used cars is not changing the prices of the new cars, as a change in quantity demanded would suggest, it is changing what people are willing to pay for the cars. A graph of the new demand curve would actually be shifted to the left of the old demand curve, because the price of new cars has not changed, but the number of new cars being sold has changed. 2. Escalating consumer debt, higher interest rates, a ...

    "Got Those Opec Blues Again" And "Rational Exuberance" "Got those OPEC Blues Again" and "Rational Exuberance" SUMMARY Since March of 1999, when the price of West Texas Intermediate crude oil was at $13 a barrel, we have seen a steady increase in prices in all phases of the economy. OPEC, the organization that is largely responsible for setting production goals in the Middle East, was under fire to find ways to increase prices. OPEC members at this time "pledged to cut back the supply of crude and push oil prices higher." (Business Week, 48) The results were better than most expected: crude oil prices were almost $27 a barrel on November 23, 1999, the highest price since the 1991 Gulf War. (B ...

  • An Analysis Of Violence In The Schools - 704 words

  • Coca Cola Marketing - 377 words
    Coca Cola Marketing On the 14th of June Coca-Colas soft drinks were banned from the markets in Belgium and later also in Luxemburg and France. Two failures in the bottling system were the cause for the nausea that the people suffered. According to the article it would have been better if they would have acted fast and told the whole truth. Coca- Cola is in an ologopolistic market and therefore branding plays a great role. It is possible that the company ha lost market shares, due to this accident. In the ologopolistic market the firms dont compete with price, but rather with advertising and other non-price strategies. Therefore one can predict that this scandal has shifted the demand curve t ...

  • Demand - 356 words
    Demand Seth Bennett ECONOMIC PRINCIPLE: Demand- The Factors That Can Shift Demand & The Impact of an Increase or Decrease in Demand on Equilibrium Price (Pe) and Quantity (Qe) A change in demand will cause equilibrium price and output to change in the same direction. A decrease in demand will cause a reduction in the equilibrium price and quantity of a good. The decrease in demand also causes excess supply to develop at the initial price. Excess supply will cause prices to fall, and as the price falls producers are willing to supply less of the good, thereby decreasing output. An increase in demand will cause an increase in the equilibrium price and quantity of a good. The increase in demand ...

  • Economics: Proposal To Cut The Budget Deficit - 426 words
    Economics: Proposal to Cut the Budget Deficit The federal budget is an explosive problem which if not acted upon soon, threatens to swallow the entire domestic income. I have placed together several decisions that create a minimal impact upon the economy, yet reduce the federal budget deficit by 2/3s. The aggregate demand curve ultimately will shift, not greatly, to the right as the economy is slightly increased throughout my proposal. To accomplish this feat, the plan to be presented to Congress in January will consist of many revenue increases and some spending increases and decreases. This plan will not decrease the entire deficit to a positive budget because the impacts of that kind of c ...

  • Federal Reserve And The Economic Bubble - 923 words
    Federal Reserve And The Economic Bubble On Tuesday, November 16, 1999, the Federal Reserve Board will decide whether or not to tighten monetary policy at the Federal Open Market Committee meeting. Throughout the year the Fed has been somewhat hesitant to raise rates, which could slow the economy. While raising the Federal Funds and Discount Rates could, in the long run, lead to higher interest rates, many people worry that the potential for an overheated economy is high, and there is little risk from too slow growth. Overheating in the economy, popularly known as the economic bubble, could reverse the current decline in inflation. Therefore, action should be taken to prevent such a thing fro ...

  • Keynes Vs Classical - 1,172 words
    Keynes Vs Classical The Classical model of the economy says that all markets always clear. The labor market failing to clear does not exist in the Classical model because of competitive exchange equilibrium in which prices and quantities always adjust perfectly. The Classical model is of a closed economy and the variables are real output, employment, real and nominal wages, the price level, and the rate of interest. It is easier to understand the classical model using five diagrams that are numbered one through five in Appendix One, The Classical Model. These diagrams represent the separate parts of the model that together illustrate, for the most part, the entire Classical model. Diagram on ...

There are economic facts, or things that will happen no matter what, that start to affect more and more people, until they sooner or later effect everybody.
