Exchange rate appreciation and domestic deflation Exchange rate depreciation and domestic inflation Exchange rate appreciation and a decrease in the domestic supply of money Exchange rate depreciation and domestic deflation 2 Which of the following statements best describes the 12 Federal Reserve Banks? They are privately owned and publicly controlled central banks whose basic goal is to earn profits for their owners.


They are privately owned and privately controlled central banks whose basic goal is to provide an ample and orderly market for U.S. Treasury securities. They are privately owned and publicly controlled central banks whose basic function is to minimize the risks in commercial banking in order to make it a reasonably profitable industry. They are privately owned and publicly controlled central banks whose basic goal is to control the money supply and interest rates in promoting the general economic welfare 3 Buyers will opt out of markets in which: there are only foreign sellers there is inadequate information about sellers and their products there are significant negative externalities standardized products are being produced 4 Pure monopolists may obtain economic profits in the long run because: of advertising marginal revenue is constant as sales increase of rising average fixed costs of barriers to entry 5 All else equal, a large decline in the real interest rate will shift the: investment demand curve rightward investment demand curve leftward investment schedule upward


investment schedule downward 6 In order for mutually beneficial trade to occur between two otherwise isolated nations: each nation must be able to produce at least one good relatively cheaper than the other each nation must face constant costs in the production of the good it exports one nation's production must be labor-intensive while the other nation's production is capital-intensive each nation must be able to produce at least one good absolutely cheaper than the other 7 If the Federal Reserve System buys government securities from commercial banks and the public: the money supply will contract commercial bank reserves will decline it will be easier to obtain loans at commercial banks commercial bank reserves will be unaffected 8 Normal profit is: the average profitability of an industry over the preceding 10 years determined by subtracting explicit costs from total revenue the return to the entrepreneur when economic profits are zero determined by subtracting implicit costs from total revenue 9 The term "recession" describes a situation where:


an economy's ability to produce is destroyed output and living standards decline inflation rates exceed normal levels Government takes a less active role in economic matters 10 If an unintended increase in business inventories occurs at some level of GDP, then GDP: is too low for equilibrium entails a rate of aggregate expenditures in excess of the rate of aggregate production is too high for equilibrium may be either above or below the equilibrium output 11 The fact that international specialization and trade based on comparative advantage can increase world output is demonstrated by the reality that: a nation's production possibilities and trading possibilities lines coincide the production possibilities curves of any two nations are identical a nation's trading possibilities line lies to the right of its production possibilities line a nation's production possibilities line lies to the right of its trading possibilities line 12 In the theory of comparative advantage, a good should be produced in that nation where:


its cost is least in terms of alternative goods that might otherwise be produced its absolute cost in terms of real resources used is least its absolute money cost of production is least the production possibilities line lies further to the right than the trading possibilities line 13 Why are economists concerned about inflation? Inflation lowers the standard of living for people whose income does not increase as fast as the price level Real GDP is necessarily falling when there is inflation Inflation generally causes unemployment rates to rise Inflation increases the value of peoples' saving and encourages overspending on goods and services 14 Two major virtues of the market system are that it: results in an equitable personal distribution of income and always maintains full employment results in price level stability and a fair personal distribution of income allocates resources efficiently and allows economic freedom eliminates discrimination and minimizes environmental pollution 15 Suppose you have a limited money income and you are purchasing products A and B, whose prices happen to be the same. To maximize your utility, you should purchase A and B in such amounts that: the income and substitution effects associated with each are equal


their marginal and total utilities are proportionate their total utilities are the same their marginal utilities are the same 16 Macroeconomics approaches the study of economics from the viewpoint of: governmental units the entire economy individual firms the operation of specific product and resource markets 17 Mrs. Arnold is spending all her money income by buying bottles of soda and bags of pretzels in such amounts that the marginal utility of the last bottle is 60 utils and the marginal utility of the last bag is 30 utils. The prices of soda and pretzels are $.60 per bottle and $.40 per bag respectively. It can be concluded that: Mrs. Arnold should spend more on soda and less on pretzels Mrs. Arnold is buying soda and pretzels in the utility-maximizing amounts the two commodities are substitute goods Mrs. Arnold should spend more on pretzels and less on soda 18 The simple circular flow model shows that: households are on the selling side of the resource market and on the buying side of the product market. businesses are on the selling side of both product and resource markets.


households are on the buying side of both product and resource markets. businesses are on the buying side of the product market and on the selling side of the resource market. 19 Assume the reserve ratio is 25 percent and Federal Reserve Banks buy $4 million of U.S. securities from the public, which deposits this amount into checking accounts. As a result of these transactions, the supply of money is: directly increased by $4 million and the money-creating potential of the commercial banking system is increased by an additional $16 million. not directly affected, but the money-creating potential of the commercial banking system is increased by $12 million. directly increased by $4 million and the money-creating potential of the commercial banking system is increased by an additional $12 million. directly reduced by $4 million and the money-creating potential of the commercial banking system is decreased by an additional $12 million. 20 As output increases, total variable cost: increases at a constant rate increases at a decreasing rate and then at an increasing rate increases continuously at a decreasing rate increases more rapidly than does total cost 21 The two basic markets shown by the simple circular flow model are: product and resource free and controlled


household and business capital goods and consumer goods 22 Countercyclical discretionary fiscal policy calls for: surpluses during both recessions and periods of demand-pull inflation deficits during both recessions and periods of demand-pull inflation surpluses during recessions and deficits during periods of demand-pull inflation deficits during recessions and surpluses during periods of demand-pull inflation 23 Because the federal government typically provides disaster relief to farmers, many farmers do not buy crop insurance even through it is federally subsidized. This illustrates: the moral hazard problem the special interest effect the adverse selection problem logrolling 24 A monopolistically competitive industry combines elements of both competition and monopoly. The monopoly element results from: the likelihood of collusion mutual interdependence product differentiation high entry barriers


25 Research for industrially advanced countries indicates that: the more independent the central bank, the higher the average annual rate of unemployment. the more independent the central bank, the higher the average annual rate of inflation the more independent the central bank, the lower the average annual rate of inflation there is no relationship between the degree of independence of a country's central bank and its inflation rate. 26 The business cycle depicts: short-run fluctuations in output and employment the phases a business goes through from when it first opens to when it finally closes fluctuations in the general price level the evolution of technology over time 27 The primary gain from international trade is: increased employment in the domestic export sector increased employment in the domestic import sector more goods than would be attainable through domestic production alone tariff revenue 28 Contractionary fiscal policy is so named because it: necessarily reduces the size of government

Scenario: Consider your last big purchase such as a car, appliances, home repairs, home purchase, computer equipment, college tuition, or another "big-ticket" item, which are often purchased using loans/financing (by borrowing money). Also consider your decisionmaking process that led you to choose a particular make, model, or brand of the product (or service) you purchased and whether it was the right time to make the purchase given economic conditions at the time of your purchase. While analyzing your decision, keep in mind everything from interest rates to the prices of complementary and substitute goods are driven by human economic behavior.


Develop a minimum 1,050-word analysis of your decision-making process in which you include the following: Retrieve statistics on Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and on Real Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) by year for the last ten years. You can retrieve those statistics from internet sources including, but not limited to, the Federal Reserve of St. Louis's FRED web site, the U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) web site, or another credible source of your choice. Post these statistics in a single worksheet of an Excel® workbook and submit your Excel® file with your report. In your report, discuss the latest 10-year trends in both GDP and PCE. Also discuss how the trends in GDP compare with trends in PCE. You are encouraged to include graphs of these statistics in your report; you could create the graphs in Excel®and copy them into your report. Retrieve statistics on the Effective Federal Funds Rate and on the Consumer Price Index: All Items Less Food and Energy by year for the last 30 years.

In your report, discuss how the trends in the Effective Federal Funds Rate compare with trends in inflation. If you took out a loan to pay for your "big-ticket" purchase, what was the interest rate on your loan? Were interest rates rising or falling at that time? Were interest rates relatively high or low at that time? You are also encouraged to include graphs of these statistics in your report.


Discuss the influence of any Federal government or state government programs, such as tax credits or tax deductions for energy-saving/efficiency purchases, on your decision to make your last big purchase; or if government incentives did not factor into your decision, explain why not. Develop conclusions about the economy's influence on personal and business decision-making relative to purchases of big-ticket items, investments, or other major purchases. Cite a minimum of three peer-reviewed sources. Note: The Federal Reserve of St. Louis, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics can be cited to fulfill this requirement.

The theory of market economies emphasizes freedom of choice and limited government intervention. The classic argument for government intervention is market failure - the inability of the market economy to correct itself from a dysfunctional state (such as the Great Depression). Students will examine articles from the University library to analyze real-world examples of U.S. government intervention programs and apply current week readings to make intelligent conclusions about the economic policies. Examples of intervention programs you may select, but are not limited to: US agriculture support programs Low income support programs (Food Stamps, Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Temporary Assistance to Needy Families) Medicaid, Children's Health Insurance Program, The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Low-income rent controls and housing vouchers Government promotion of renewable energy sources to discourage use of fossil fuels such as coal and oil Unemployment Insurance Bailout of U.S. banks and other financial institutions during the Great Recession

Develop a 1,400-word evaluation of pricing strategies available producers of your selected product. This will include statements about the market structure and the elasticity of demand for the product, based on text book principles and real world products under development. Identify the market structure of the industry (monopoly, oligopoly, competitive monopoly). Determine elasticity of demand for various quality ranges of the product based on textbook theory and judgments about the degree of luxury vs. necessity represented by various brands (e.g. a luxury car vs an economy car). 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 non-pricing 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. Format the assignment consistent with APA guidelines. ==============================================

Choose two publicly-held organizations. One organization must have high fixed costs and low variable costs, and the other organization must have low fixed costs and high variable costs. Note: A publicly-held organization is a private-sector firm that is owned by stock holders. 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. Note: Companies are categorized by the industries they operate in. For example, Wal-


Mart is a company operating within the retail trade industry. Hoover's Company Profiles by ProQuest located in the University Library may be helpful. Cite a minimum of three peer-reviewed sources.
