Entertainment Or Beyond - 715 words
Should movie producers make movies that are entertaining to the public, rather than making them appear as a teaching tool? This is a difficult question to answer, and depending on your views of society, there may be several opinions on this subject. Let us not forget that movies cost money to produce, and the investors of these firms want a return on their money. Therefore, a producer must create a film that will be profitable, while at the same time trying to personalize his or her work for future generations. Who is right? Possibly, no one can answer that question truly, but here are some important things to ponder the next time you go to view a film. Some may argue the filmmakers prime di ...

Equal Pay - 1,688 words
Pay equity means of eliminating sex and race discrimination in the wage-setting system. The wage gap is currently at 73 cents to the dollar. That means the wage gap has narrowed by less than a half penny per year.

Dvorak Keyboard - 317 words
The Dvorak keyboard layout has been slow to catch on due to lack of scientifically conclusive evidence that it is superior to the QWERTY sequence. The majority of positive test results seem to come from Dvorak himself, who had a financial and intellectual investment in his patent. Ergonomic studies did not support his superior claim for the layout. Tests done by the Department of the Navy were positive, but considering that Dvorak was also a Naval Officer, it is no wonder that endorsement was provided by the U.S. Navy. Businesses are slow to accept a change in an accepted standard due to the risks of rejection by competitors. The comparison of the two is very similar to the videotape format ...

Drink Industry - 1,949 words
When there is industry there is competition. The bigger the player, the harder they can play. The big players always try to consume many of the small competitors.

This paper will discuss the history between these two industry giants and how they financially stand at this point, plus how supply and demand effects this industry. Coca Cola was invented by an Atlanta pharmacist John Pemberton in 1886. His bookkeeper, Frank Robinson, ...

Monopoly - 878 words
This paper will show my opinion of Microsoft being branded a monopoly. I feel this example shows supply and demand in addition to monopolistic competition. This entire ordeal is over a free browser that Microsoft includes with windows for free and gives out on the internet for free just as Netscape and most other browser companies do. The government feels that Microsoft is creating a demand purely for their products by forcing its browser on suppliers and controlling prices. I have yet to see where Microsoft is charging extraordinary prices for any of these free programs nor do I see how Netscape, in using the governments definition, a "monopoly" itself, is "being forced out of business" by ...

Marx And Capitalism - 1,243 words
Karl Marx is the most controversial economist in history. His writings are studied and debated. He is frequently linked with communism and that association has biased many people against him.

He was however a critic of capitalism. He studied capitalism extensively and much of his writings focus on the problems with capitalism and specifically on the exploitation of the worker. By examining the origination of capitalism and the Marxist critique of capitalism, we can gain a better understanding of Marxs vie ...

Monetary Policy And The Economy - 1,967 words
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 ...

Paul A Samuelson - 1,235 words
... . The equilibrium theory developed by Samuelson studied the interaction between all prices and quantities in an economic system. Under this theory Samuelson demonstrated that free trade is superior to protection by tariffs. Even though it is a known fact that foreign trade causes redistribution within countries, it is more beneficial for individuals benefiting from free trade to completely compensate those who lose in international trade. This method is more beneficial to all involved than the use of tariffs which raise the price of the product and reduce the rewards for international trade. Traditional thinking regarding capital theory was that there must be an application of an aggrega ...

Laissez Faire - 1,113 words
Classical Laissez-faire Economics The earliest organized school of economic thought is known as Classical. The father of this school is Adam Smith. Smith used the concept of the invisible hand to describe the role of the market in the allocation of resources. In the market, the interaction of demand and supply determines how much of a good will be produced and the price that is charged for that good. Absent any explicit guidance mechanism, the invisible hand guides participants in the market towards an outcome that efficiently allocates resources to the production of goods that society desires. Other important classical economists include David Ricardo who introduced and developed the concep ...

The Wealth Of Nations Vs The Communist Manifesto - 1,277 words
"The Wealth of Nations" vs. "The Communist Manifesto" Looking at the beginnings of civilization, one can identify a common theme between almost all prior cities and nations. This theme was and still is that these civilizations were structured and divided according to different powers, no matter it being social, economic, or political power. An example of this can be seen when examining the Feudal system of the Medieval period, when power was held by kings and lords, while peasants had barely if any say in rule. Many have had their say in what they believe to be the "utopian system," by which nations and states should be run. Their perfect system for economics and society have been based on a ...

Thompson - 786 words
Everyday in society, somebody is challenging something. Everyone believes that they can make a difference. This manner of critical thinking allows for lifestyles to be altered on a regular basis. Much of this is caused by the creation of countercultures that oppose the so-called norm or popular culture. In the past, such people have been labeled revolutionary or enlightened thinkers. In E.P.

Texas Instruments - 1,708 words
Global Pricing in the Semiconductor Industry The major issue of the case is dealing with the question, if a global pricing strategy would be adequate to pursue in the semiconductor industry. So far, semiconductors had been bought and sold at different price levels in different countries to reflect the various cost structures of the countries in which they were produced. Semiconductors made in European countries were usually more expensive than those made in Asia or North America, simply because it cost manufacturers more to operate in Europe than in the other two regions. Despite these differences, large distributors and some original equipment manufacturers were becoming insistent on buying ...
