A white paper is a persuasive and informative paper on a complex issue. Businesses use them for marketing purposes but nonprofits and government organizations use them to make a case for certain policies or programs. For the Economic Policy White Paper you will write a 10-page paper making the case for an economic policy that you have found effective at addressing an economic problem of your choosing. Assignments through the semester will help you identify a public problem; identify the economic elements impacting the problem; policy solutions that address the problem; and making the case for your recommended solution. This white paper will be grounded in and will make use of course materials and themes.

a) Estimate a standardized regression model with ypcgr as the dependent variable and explanatory variables edavg testavg and ypc60. Dont forget to suppress the intercept (constant) in your regression. Report your regression here. Interpret the coefficients of your regression model. Which has a greater effect on growth? Years in School or Test Scores? b) Use the test statement in STATA to determine if the effect of Years in School is equal to the effect of Test Scores on growth. Report your results here. State your null and alternative hypotheses of this test and your conclusion. c) Here we are going to replicate the results of part b) by using the restricted regression and unrestricted regression F-statistic based on R-square measures. First report the restricted regression that is implied by the null hypothesis of part b). (Remember you need to suppress the constant term in your restricted regression.) You have already run the unrestricted regression in part a). Explicitly show me how you would calculate the F-statistic reported in part b). d) Now add the standardized versions of the variables proprts and open to your regression of part a) and run it being sure to suppress the intercept. Report your regression equation here. Which is more important property rights or the openness of the economy in promoting growth? Explain your answer. e) Is the adjusted R-square of the model in part d) greater or less than the adjusted R-square of the model of part a)? Which model do you prefer between the model of part a) or the model of part d)? Explain your answer. f) Report the STATA code you used to complete this problem.
A free enterprise system provides individuals the opportunity to make their own economic decisions without restrictions from the government. It allows the supply and demand of consumers to determine the success or failure of an economic endeavor. As a result some business owners have become successful while others have not. you will choose an entrepreneur and argue whether the free enterprise system was necessary for that individual to make an impact on the business world.
A detailed feasibility study is an essential element in the process of diligently assessing any new health services business venture. According to data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics the health care industry is currently one of the fastest growing fields in the United States and it is projected that the field will grow by 22 percent by 2018. This is compared to an 11 percent average growth rate for all other industries (United States Department of Labor 2012). Whether you are considering new medical service lines an expansion of your current operation or any other type of health care business venture a feasibility study is an essential planning tool for any future health care leader. (expanding the inpatient acute rehab facility to include a mobility garden for physical therapy) In this assignment you will be taking the first step toward the completion of your final assignment by settling on the topic for your feasibility study. Please read the Leff et al (5) article Hospital at Home: Feasibility and Outcomes of a Program to Provide Hospital-Level Care at Home for Acutely Ill Older Patients.

Â· Must include the listed headings with the content required under each. Â· Must use at least five scholarly sources
A firms capital structure is determined by more than just a component cost for each source of capital and is not fixed over time. Rather the capital structure of a firm is determined by conditions in the domestic and international economies and it should also reflect changing conditions in the economy.In other words the relationship between risk and return should be the major consideration in establishing the capital structure of the firm and the value of the firm. Address all of the following questions in a brief but thorough manner. ***What is the basic relationship between risk and return and how is this reflected in the value of the firms stock? The cost of debt? ***What are the primary factors that should be considered when establishing a firms capital structure? ***What are the primary differences and/or similarities between financial risk and business risk? The final paragraph (three or four sentences) of your initial post should summarize your post. should be the equivalent of 1 to 2 single-spaced pages (500“1000 words) in length.
A change in quantity demanded (or a movement along the demand curve) is caused by a change in its own price while a change in demand (or a shift of the demand curve) is caused by a change in nonprice determinants that include changes in consumers income taste or preference price of other goods expected future price etcetera. Respond to the following: If Cokes price increases what will happen to the demand or quantity demanded forPepsi all other things being equal? Explain whether it is a movement along the demand curve or a shift of the demand curve. If Coca-Cola develops a new technology that makes Coke tastier what will happen to the supply curve and demand curve for Coke? Is the demand (curve or schedule) for Coke or Pepsi seasonally different? What is the relationship between Coke andPepsi? Do they have the same demand curve or are they different? Explain your reasoning. Your initial post should be a minimum of 300 words.

50 words agree or disagree to each questions Q1 Coming relatively close to estimating the demand for the product that you are releasing is crucial. Estimating the demand is vital to any business and in some cases it may be more crucial to smaller businesses however if you are dealing with a larger more internationally recognized company completely undervaluing or overvaluing the demand for a product could lead to the loss of millions of dollars for the company and investors. There will always be room for margin of error and you would think that people would be better at estimating the demand for their product correctly. It is not as simple as saying I am going to produce this amount and go from there. There are different markets and trends to consider in the different regions. This does not apply to all products but it does to a lot of them. Events going on around the world can affect the process in which companies use to product demand. COVID had this affect on NVIDIA a computer graphics card designer. The hype had been building for months about the new line of graphics cards (GPUs). The amazing processing power the looks the technology the performance and one of the biggest things that caught a lot of people off guard was the MSRP of the new 30 series GPUs. The price of these cards dropped significantly from its predecessors which were in the thousand dollar price range. The new line MSRP started at $499 $699 and $1599. The $1599 may seem expensive and it is but that GPU is for the high end. Like many products such as Lego and Peloton new hobbies were picked up by the masses during the on going pandemic. People getting immersed into the world of online gaming was no different as more people spent more time at home they need more ways to occupy their time. The launch came and went with a staggering amount of people not being able to secure a card for themselves in store or online. There were many factors to this such as bot programs buying massive amounts of products to be sold later at triple the MSRP on Ebay and Amazon. But one of the biggest blunders was on NVIDIA as they severely underestimated the popularity of PCs in todays society and simply just did not make enough product to satisfy the masses and there is still no telling when more inventory will come on to the market to quell some of the outrageous prices third party vendors are charging. Q2 For a business knowing the demand of your products underpins every other decision to be made. Without accurate data on the demand at different price levels managers will not be able to understand the elasticity of their product. Instead they will have to rely on estimation and chance when setting the selling price for that product. As we saw in last weeks lesson missing by even a small margin on the price can lead to significant losses in profit. Managers will continue to count on their subjective analysis when establishing how much to produce of a product. Again a small miscalculation can lead not only to lost profits but also to lost confidence in the company if it fails to supply enough of its product to consumers. Relying on insight is considered an option for demand forecasting though it is considerably less accurate than quantitative methods. While quantitative methods are more accurate they are not without their drawbacks. These analyses are often complex which can make them both expensive and difficult to troubleshoot. Nike provides an example of a quantitative forecasting error that caused significant losses before the error was recognized. In 1 the company implemented a new $400 million supply chain management system that would predict the demand of each product and coordinate the production and transportation of those products. The new system failed to accurately predict demand for the high-selling shoes creating an undersupply of those shoes and an oversupply of its less popular shoes. By the third quarter of 1 Nike reported $100 million in sales losses because of these mistakes. Not only was the supply management system expensive from the start but its complexity prevented errors from being recognized early enough. Industry leaders that are trying to remain innovative will always have difficulty estimating demand for their products so the existence of complex forecasting tools is to be expected. However Nike should have taken a more calculated approach when implementing this new technology. Rather than adopting this technology for the entire company at once Nike could have taken a step-by-step approach. While this would not have prevented the errors inherent in the tool it would have allowed the company to catch these errors much sooner. References: Lauden J & Lauden K. (5).
