Samantha has a loan with an interest rate of 6.67 percent now, but the rate could increase 2 percent next year. What lending term best describes this loan? 1)finance charges 2)fixed rate loan 3)APR 3)variable rate loan
Answer: 3 Variable Rate Loan.
The variable rate loan best describes the loan agreement because the rate can vary and become a different percent over the course of the loan agreement. When you agree to loan terms with variable interest rates it is important to remember when they will change and check the interest rate amounts at any given time over the course of the loan, sometimes the loan terms jump drastically if not paid by the initial given rate.
Suppose that Eric, an economist from a business school in Georgia, and Ginny, an economist from a public television program, are arguing over saving incentives. The following dialogue shows an excerpt from their debate: Ginny: I think it’s safe to say that, in general, the savings rate of households in today’s economy is much lower than it really needs to be to sustain the improvement of living standards. Eric: I think a switch from the income tax to a consumption tax would bring growth in living standards. Ginny: You really think households would change their saving behavior enough in response to this to make a difference? Because I don’t. The disagreement between these economists is most likely due to _____ . A. Difference in values B. Difference in scientific judgements C. Difference in perception versus reality Despite their differences, with which proposition are two economists chosen at random most likely to agree? A. Employers should not be restricted from outsourcing work to foreign nations. B. Central banks should focus more on maintaining low unemployment than on maintaining low inflation. C. Business managers can raise profit more easily by reducing costs than by raising revenue.
Correct option: Difference in scientific judgements
Both Eric and Ginny are from different backgrounds are working at the different levels of economic understanding. They have different skills sets, values and thought process for the same economic problem. Therefore, there is a difference in scientific judgement.
Correct Option A: Employers should not be restricted from outsourcing work to foreign nations.

Assume the market for spiral bound notebooks is in equilibrium. All students in public schools need notebooks of some type when they attend classes. For each of the following, explain the possible effects on demand and/or supply and equilibrium price and quantity of spiral bound notebooks using a correctly labeled supply and demand graph with equilibrium price and quantity labeled. Under your hand-drawn graph, list the determinant of supply and/or demand that causes each shift as well as the change in price and quantity. a) The price of natural gas, a resource used by manufacturers throughout the United States, doubles. b) The government provides a subsidy for notebook manufacturers. c) Your income increases and spiral bound notebooks are an inferior good.
b) In theory, the subsidy reduces the cost per unit to the manufacturer, which increases supply and often reduces price, again being a supply-side determinant. In reality, it creates an incentive for notebook manufacturers to keep doing what they are doing, disincentivizing cost-saving developments and alternatives. Why innovate when you can get free government cheese?
Anyway, supply determinant.
c) The price of an inferior good increasing tends to push some demand for superior goods, especially when the income to cost of good ratio remains the same for the inferior good but gets better for the superior one. Demand determinant.
Which of the following is not an example of how media coverage of the Space Race affected the economy? The media only covered positive elements of the Space Race and never mentioned any setbacks. Space memorabilia were made and sold to the public to celebrate successful launches. Astronauts became public heroes and helped sell the image of the space program. The race to beat the Soviet Union to the Moon supported the growth of NASA and its facilities.
Correct option: The media only covered positive elements of the Space Race and never mentioned any setbacks.
The above given option does not talk about any aspect of media coverage of the space race and its effects on the economy. Covering only positive aspect without explaining its economic implications does not have any positive or negative effect on any economic activity, externalities or economic well being of any country. On the other hand, option B , C and D talks about economic implications.

Is this story: sole proprietorship, partnership, OR corporation? When I was three years old, I started making candy with my grandmother. I am now 10 and I want to sell chocolate candy with a farm theme to my friends and family. My product ideas include Brown Cows (chocolate cows on a stick), Pigs in Mud (marshmallow dipped in caramel, nuts and chocolate) and Farm Eggs (jelly beans dipped in chocolate). The start-up expenses for my business are pretty small: a few candy molds, candy and chocolate.) My parents have agreed to loan me the money I will need and to let me work in the family kitchen. Schoolwork has to take priority over business so if I have more sales than I can handle, I will probably ask friends or my older brother to help. My brother is also pretty good at math and computers so he could help me with keeping track of my expenses and advertising. I really like the product development and packaging part of the business.

Imagine that the interest rate on your savings account is 1 percent a year and inflation is 2 percent a year. After one year, would the money in the account buy more than it does today, exactly the same or less than today? More than it does today Less than today Exactly the same If interest rates rise, what will typically happen to bond prices? Rise, fall, stay the same, or is there no relationship? Stay the same Fall No relationship Rise
If interest rates rise, bond prices will fall. They have an inverse relationship.
Suppose you have $100 in a savings account earning 2 percent interest a year. After five years, would you have more than $102, exactly $102 or less than $102? More than $102 Less than $102 Exactly $102
For this problem, take the interest equation into account: . is the interest, is the principal amount that will be invested, is the rate of interest per year (expressed in decimal form, where 90% is 0.9, for example), and is the amount of time. Let's solve the amount of money gained from interest after one year:
That means 2 dollars are earned after one year. If $102 is the total after one year, and interest is earned yearly, it surely can't be $102 at the end of five years. So, let's solve for five years this time:
So, at the end of five years, $110 will be earned. This is more than $102 dollars, meaning that your first answer choice is the correct one.
Hope this helped you out! Feel free to ask me any additional questions you may have. :-)
