Companies with high fixed costs include manufacturing companies, such as automobile manufactures, whereas service companies, such as accounting firms, might have low fixed costs. Create and Present to the class a minimum 15 minute 8-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint®presentation, including detailed speaker notes , analyzing the methods of managing cost depending on the cost construction. Research the University Library for recent publications regarding each company and the industry data. The analysis should include the following: • Analyze your two chosen companies' cost construction. Do the companies have high fixed costs or low fixed costs? Do the companies have high variable costs or low variable costs? What evidence presents itself to support your findings? •


In Excel®, chart the relationship between total cost and the number of units produced (output) for each organization/company. Plot two lines on the graph - one line for each company you analyzed. Copy your graph from Excel® and paste it into your PowerPoint® presentation. • Analyze currently used methods to minimize costs for the companies and provide recommendations how to improve the process of minimizing costs based on the available information for the industries in which the companies operate.

Determine how pricing relates to elasticity of demand for competing models. Explain how changes in the quantity supplied as a result of pricing decisions might affect the company's marginal cost, marginal revenue, and market share as production volume rises. What reaction might be expected by other producers if one producer changes its pricing strategy? Determine strategies that a company might use to develop product differentiation and market segmentation. What alternative non-pricing strategies are available? What alternative nonpricing strategies can be used to increase barriers to entry? Discuss how producers might alter the mix of fixed and variable costs to support their pricing strategy.

Analyze the arguments for government intervention as opposed to arguments for market-based solutions. Examine who may be helped and who may be hurt by the selected government intervention. Examine externalities and/or unintended consequences of such intervention. Determine the cost trend of the intervention program since its implementation. Evaluate the success or failure of the intervention in achieving its objectives and develop conclusions. Defend the use of or discontinuation of the selected intervention. Note: The use of tables and/or charts to display economic data over the time period discussed is highly encouraged. Cite a minimum of three scholarly references.
