  1. Explain how the transfer of capital can be influenced by world trading organisations and financial institutions?

    They are set up to encourage trade between countries, but also to ensure the trade is fair and legitimate. The WTO works by particular people representing each country to discuss any trade problems and to ensure everybody is treated equally. One of the largest problems the WTO has had to deal with is the "banana wars", where countries in the Caribbean and Latin America have been allowed free trade since 1975, with no excess fee to Europe as they were part of their colony.

  2. Economics Homework- LRAS CURVE AND SRARS CURVE

    This can be shown using the circular flow of income model. If households spend 9/10 of their gross income, then the remaining 1/10 will either be saved or paid to the Government as tax. For instance in stage 1 we can consider �100m flowing into firms, which is distributed out as wages and profits to the households. The households spend the money back on firms and the cycle continues, but each time there are withdrawals of 0.1 lost through savings and taxes. So during the second stage only �90m goes back to the firms and on the third stage �81m, etc.

  3. Imperial Tobacco predicts 3% revenue rise

    But volumes of cigarettes are expected to fall more than 4 per cent, dragging down "white stick equivalent" volumes - which encompass cigarettes and loose-leaf tobacco - by 3 per cent, from 358.8bn last year. That compares with management expectations in July of a 3.1 per cent decline. The suggestion of a slight improvement in volumes in the fourth quarter provides some succour to shareholders. In March, Imperial's stock tumbled after UBS said earnings growth was set to slow and warned that consensus forecasts for next year looked too high.

  4. Utah House Passes $1 Cigarette Tax Hike

    "He hasn't told me specifically he is," Ray said in the AP report. "But you've been up here long enough you can just kind of see how things go." Herbert spokeswoman, Angie Welling, told the AP the governor will consider the tax increase in the context of the overall budget, and noted he hasn't decided what action he'll take on the legislation. Regarding the passage of the bill, Bill Phelps, spokesman for Altria Group, parent to Philip Morris USA, told the AP raising taxes is the wrong solution. "Typically cigarette tax increases do not raise all of the revenue they are projected to raise, creating another budget gap," Phelps said in e-mail.

    For example, the need for basic public services such as health-care, food and shelter. Stable programs like these are necessary for sustaining an organized economy and a strong government infrastructure. The article mentions that increased integration into the global economy is a very important aspect in the growth process. What creates a stable economy is a country's ability to cooperate with other countries, balancing imports with exports. Boosting competitiveness is also a crucial aspect of making sure that a country creates a stable role in the trade system. Most of these developing countries are in Southeast Asia; therefore, in theory it should not be too difficult for international cooperation to come from larger economies such as China or Japan.

  14. The circular flow of income and particular the injections and leakages have a substantial influence on the economic activity of the time. Economic activity is defined as the production and distribution of goods and service in an economy,

    This process is classified as a leakage as it involves people removing funds which would otherwise be spent. When the leakage is taking place it reduces the amount of money that could be spent on purchasing goods or services. This will result in a drop in demand which will be responded to by a drop in production. This drop in demand and production is otherwise known as a decrease in economic activity. Despite savings resulting in a drop in economic activity it is also the money that funds investment agencies.

  17. Evaluate the policies available to a government that wishes to reduce unemployment rate

    I will assess the solutions of structural unemployment that the government can employ. Structural unemployment occurs when there is a permanent fall in demand for a particular type of labour. For example, when workers are mismatched for skills for the job or their geographic area limits where they want to work- if a mining site disappears, the coal miner will not be able to work in the neighbourhood bakery instead as he does not have the skills required for baking.

  22. Essay on oligopolistic behaviour

    However in a tacit collusion the companies in an oligopoly will charge the same price by observing each others behaviour, which is possible due to the relatively small number of companies. Alternatively the companies may also simply follow the prices of the leading company giving the same effect. In both cases the price will settle at a supernormal profit, as the quantity will be set where MC=MR, giving maximum profits. Unlike the monopolistic alternate version, productive efficiency will never be an option, as the other companies in the oligopoly would be able to push out a company attempting such efficiency.

    The concept of Pareto efficiency, a scenario where no improvements in the allocation of goods to benefit individuals without making others worse off, is integral to this scenario. A Pareto efficient outcome is the socially optimal; however, additional government involvement is sometimes necessary where the free market has failed. The negative impact on parties not involved in the transaction, accrued to society as a cause of only a small number of students attending university, i.e. the negative externality, to be corrected will manifest itself in stagnant growth in the standard of living and national income.

Fiscal policy generally concerns itself with creating conditions of full employment, price stability and real GDP growth. Full employment, or an economic state where all eligible people who want to work can find employment at the prevailing wage rate, is important in achieving a state of maximum productivity in the economy.
