The Future Of The Economy In The Year 2000 - 1,645 words
The economy has performed exceptionally well for the past several years, combining rapid growth and very low unemployment with declining inflation. Not only has the expansion achieved record length, but it has done so with far stronger growth than expected, stated Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan in his remarks to the National Community Reinvestment Coalition annual conference in Washington (Business Week, The McGraw-Hill Companies, Economic Outlook, March 6,2000).

Using the tools of monetary policy, the Federal Reserve can affect the volume of money and credit and their priceinterest rates. In this way, it influences employment, output, and the general level of prices. THE FEDERAL RESERVE ACT LAYS OUT the goals of monetary policy. It specifies that, in conducting monetary policy, the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Open Market Committee should seek to promote effectively the goals of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates. Many analysts believe that the central bank should focus primarily on achieving price stability. A stable level of prices appears to be the condition most conducive to maximum sustained outpu ...

... duce consumers demand for cars and light trucks. Beyond these effects, consumption demand is lowered by a reduction in the value of household assetssuch as stocks, bonds, and landthat tends to result from higher long-term interest rates. The implications of changes in interest rates extend beyond domestic money and credit markets. Continuing with the example, when interest rates in the United States move higher in relation to those abroad, holding assets denominated in U.S. dollars becomes more appealing, and the demand for dollars in foreign exchange markets increases. A result is upward pressure on the exchange value of the dollar. With flexible exchange rates (rates that fluctuate as ...

The Government usually respects the human rights of its citizens. Some of Israeli human rights include the following: Due to the lack of major terrorist attacks, which reduced the overall level of tension as well as the number of security related arrests.

But I think our costs here are..." (he pauses) "... appropriate." Siegmund says he cannot imagine getting less than the basic pounds 500 a week he now earns.

... rnational policy. President Bushs loopholes in the 1990 Clean Air Act were by no means the beginning of weakened laws to help further business. After President Carter introduced tougher toxic dumping regulations for corporations, there was a huge increase in illegal midnight dumpings. Soon, exporting toxic waste to the Third World became a sudden growth industry. While it is true that the Carter administration vetoed these kinds of exports for toxic garbage, the ban was soon withdrawn by the Reagan administration. Reagan was very eager to please industry, which crippled the environmental movement. As viewed by most conservationists, the Reagan administration dealt with matters of the env ...

Post War Economy - 1,133 words
After years of living with a strict budget because of the Great Depression and the war, during the post-war period, Americans wanted to get their hands on anything they could get, especially automobiles and television sets, which advertised for other products during commercials. They also purchased more refrigerators, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, and cameras than ever before. Electric can openers, electric garage door openers, and electric pencil sharpeners appeared on the market and quickly became part of the new way of life. This increase in goods and services that characterized the postwar period, gave Americans the highest standard of living the world had ever known. The United Sta ...

Thomas Dalzell: What are the main factors underlying the weak Canadian dollar vs U.S. dollar. I am thinking not only of the last three points of drop, but the plummet from parity with the U.S. dollar. Sherry Cooper: The Canadian dollar has been in long-term decline since 1975 for many reasons. Most fundamentally, our economy has dramatically underperformed the U.S. since that time. Productivity growth,in particular, has been quite disappointing. More recently, the flow of capital has been to the U.S. Even with a stellar performance in our stock market, most of the record inflow of foreign capital to our stock market has been transacted through U.S. exchanges, not through the TSE. Moreover, C ...

... of GDP, oil usage has declined 50% in the past 20 years in the U.S. Energy is not as large a share of the household pocketbook as it used to be either. The rise in prices, however, has increased headline inflation. Core inflation is still a modest 2.6% in the U.S. and a mere 1.3% in Canada. No worry there. If anything, rising heating bills will slow the growth of discretionary income and contribute to the slowdown in economic activity. This does reduce profit margins for many companies and, of course, improve the profit growth in the energy sector. Steve: Why do you think Canada will outpace the US in growth next year. Is it a function of interest rates or production? Sherry Cooper: The ...

The Effect Of Rock And Roll On The American Economy - 1,465 words
How has Rock and Roll Effected the American Economy? Consider, if you will, the life of a teenager living in the 1940's. The Great Depression was finally coming to an end, but the memories of the rough times would scar its sufferers for a lifetime. Caused by a number of serious weaknesses in the economy, the depression saw a rapid decline in the production and sale of goods, as well as a sudden, severe rise in unemployment. Businesses and banks closed their doors, people lost their jobs, homes, and savings; many people depended on charity to survive (**encarta**). Teenagers were given a tremendous amount of responsibility. While their fathers were out doing what little work there was, it was ...

Labor Unions: Harmful To The Economy - 1,574 words
The Labor Unions of 2003 look nothing like the original Labor Unions of 1886 created by Samuel Gompers. Once used to protect people's rights now is too powerful and is trampling those same rights that were once protected. Labor Unions, which did shorten the workweek and workday and improve working conditions through collective bargaining, shifted their strategy to politics. Thomas Jefferson once said that "to compel a man, to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves, is sinful and tyrannical." (Wilson, Online) Labor Unions fit this description as forcing union dues to all those with a specific job and have become tyrants in the government. Labor Uni ...
