Thinking that it maybe was about time for something not so spectacular, I grabbed this book by Iain Not-M Banks while I was at the bookstore (getting The Naked God). Good thing. Even with it's high finance setting and international business milieu, The Business is the most quiet and laid back book I've ever read by Banks. This is mostly because of the main character Kate Telman, who's just so nice, and warm and understandable that it's nearly too much. But only nearly, Banks keeps h

Including the concepts of elasticity, utility, costs, and market structure to explain the prices charged by fast food retailers.

There are three main features that distinguish between a perfect competition and monopoly market structure: the type of firm, the freedom of entry and the nature of the product (Sloman and Norris 1999, pg, 161). A table of these features is contained in Appendix A. These two market structures are on opposite ends of the scale and consequently, the features and benefits of each structure vary quite dramatically. Firms In a perfectly competitive market structure, there must be many firm

PRICE FLUXUATION There are many factors that can cause the price of a product to fluctuate. The product that we are examining is a high quality mountain bike that has been set at a price of fifteen hundred dollars. This price was reached by taking into consideration all of the Laws of Demand. The need of a product to consumers greatly reflects the percent of markup over the initial cost of production. A product is not always sold at a specific percent above cost; many different facto

- 2. Buffer Stocks - One step a government might take in order to stabilize agricultural prices is to use the technique of buffer stocks. The very basic idea of this is letting the government set a minimum price on agricultural goods. This price will usually be above the price where demand meets supply, so the government must buy the excess quantity produced, in order to stabilize prices. This quantity will then be stored till, for example, next year where there is a bad harvest,

Part 1 In a “Perfect Competition” there are many firms that sell a product. Most likely it is a single product that they sell, competing against each other. They allow people to come in and out of the market very easily. In a “Monopoly” there is a single seller, he decides who he wants to sell it to and at what price he wishes to sell it at. There is usually one unique product that they sell. Though there are lots of products out there, there are some that inventors are no

Rob Reynolds In the short stories "The Gift of the Magi", and "The Necklace" there are many things that can noticed that are similar. The settings of these two stories are very similar: first of all, they both occur around fall or winter. They also occur around the turn of the century. Both of the families are middle to low-class. There are little, if any differences in settings, except for that they most likely occur in different towns. In "The Necklace " and "The Gift of the Magi", the

Topics for conversation in this report will include: 1. Gun Control and the Markets 2. Victims vs. Criminals 3. Interpretation of Data Gun control assumes some fundamental things to hold true. It assumes that all people are law abiding, responsible, and well intended; we know this is not the case or their would not be a gun debate.

For the first time since 1990, the taxable bond market, as measured by the Lehman Brothers Aggregate Bond Index, appeared nearly certain to outperform the U.S. stock market, as measured by the S&P 500®. The former was up nearly 10% year to date through November, while the S&P 500 was down by approximately the same amount. Disappointing corporate earnings and uncertainty concerning a president-elect toppled the stock market late in the period. While it's impossible to predict the fu

My Plastic Last summer was the first time that I had an official job. I use the words official job because I had to arrive at work for a certain time, work so many hours a week and finally had to pay taxes. I made my fair share of money that summer and I spent a great deal of it. The money was deposited directly into my bank account, and for reasons of convenience, I got a debit card. That would prove to be a mistake. Banking cards are nothing more than a drain on an individual s wallet becau

Should teens have a credit card? Some people feel that it is a good thing for a teen to have. Others see it as a bad thing. I feel that it is a good thing to have if you are teen. There are a couple of reasons for this. For instance, if you need some extra cash because you have run out of money when you were at the gas station a credit card would be helpful. You could take it inside and pay the bill with the card. Now what could you do if you had no card and were in the same situation?

The silent epidemic sweeping the nation today is credit card abuse. As prices of goods increase faster than average wages, American families slide deeper into debt. In the meantime, the banks are flourishing from their desire to buy now and pay later. It is amazing how a small piece of plastic can be so dangerous. Society today almost requires people to carry credit cards. In my opinion, credit cards are one of America s family s most underrated problems. One could assume the banks encou

Computers have a great effect on the way we live our lives today. From writing documents to banking, computers are integrating themselves into our daily tasks more and more every day.

Corey Melke 5/2/99 BUS 256 Mr. Hunkins ELECTRONIC BANKING The Electronic Banking Association (EBA) is a non-profit organization established to do one simple thing-help more people get started with electronic banking.

What is a Smart Card? A smart card is a card that is embedded with either a microprocessor and a memory chip or only a memory chip with non-programmable logic. The microprocessor card can add, delete, and otherwise manipulate information on the card, while a memory-chip card (for example, pre-paid phone cards) can only undertake a pre-defined operation. Smart cards, unlike magnetic stripe cards, can carry all necessary functions and information on the card. Therefore, they do not require a

Pre-paid Phone Cards For consumers who either do not have a home phone or need to make phone calls when away from home, prepaid phone cards can offer ease of use, convenience and savings. While there are numerous such cards to choose from, not all cards are created equal. Nor are all cards problem free. Virtually unheard of in this country just five years ago, today prepaid phone cards are available just about everywhere in the United States. Such cards enable consumers to make calls when awa

Often times bank mergers take place because there are too many banks, too many branches, and too many competitors. A merger is when two companies combine to form a larger more powerful firm.

In the past five years many mergers have occurred in the banking industry for example; Chase Manhattan and Chemical Bank, BankAmerica and NationsBank, and Banc One and First Chicago. These are only a few of the

In a society where technology is rapidly growing, controversy over our privacy rights has also cultivated. With the popularity of the Internet, cell phones, ATM and credit cards it is evident that Americans enjoy the convenience that has come along with technology. What some people may not know is that we are watched by computers when we simply browse a web site, we are posting our whereabouts every time we use our ATM card, and we freely give out our address and phone number when we

Our topic for research is Henry Ford. We chose this topic, because we thought it would be interesting and be easy to locate. Before we chose him we got a little information on him. When he proved to be an interesting subject and a little easy, we decided to stay with him. Henry Ford changed history greatly: that is another reason we chose him. The research was mainly done on the Internet and on an encyclopedia. They both provided a lot of information. Also we got some information from books a

Option 1 The naming of the school is an important decision. Think about an important person for whom a new school should be named write to explain why this person would deserve this important honor. “Henry Ford Senior High School” What exactly does it take to have a school named after a person?

Transportation has become a major necessity in today’s society. Without the industrial revolution introducing the automobile, most people would find it very hard and frustrating to get around. Henry Ford had become a big part of starting this faster and safer “transportation era”. His brilliant thoughts and ideas brought about things including the “assembly line” and the “Model T”. It is because of him we can generally travel without any major p

Edward Keller’s, “Mr. Ford-What have you done?” depicts much of Ford’s life

The topic selected involves Henry Ford along with his improvement to the human way of life. The improvement that I refer to is the introduction of the assembly production line. It was the invention of the assembly line that gave people of today the luxuries they have. The subject of Ford and the assembly line intrigues me because I have a fascination for history. For me, history is a part of all of us, who we are, where we have been, and where we are going. Unfortunately I have no prio

The Ford Motor Company led what has been called a revolution. Henry Ford restructured everything from the salaries of employees to the work ethic they demonstrated. He did numerous things that were considered absurd and unrealistic at the time. This included the introduction of the $5.00 work day, and with this the desire to control his workers lives. In a way he did this for the better of the workers and the better of the company. The $5.00 per day rate was not as dumb as people perceived
