6. Define:

Economic Rent – Price minus Opportunity cost. Any excess payment above the minimum you would accept for a good, service or property. Ex. If you would accept $45,000 for a job, but they offer you $60,000, your economic rent is $15,000.

Internal Labor Market – A company looking inside itself to find a suitable person to fulfill the role of the vacant senior job instead of hiring outside of the company.
Entry level jobs are usually the only source of External Labor Market here.
This method of hiring is preferred because it reduces hiring and training costs, improves employee motivation, and reduces effect of uncertainty.

Nominal Wage – A Labor wage in terms of today’s dollars in currency not counting for inflation or the amount of goods it will buy.
Wages measured in terms of money paid and not in purchasing ability.

Marginal Labor Cost -

Scale Effect -

Right-to-Work Law –

Substitution Effect – As prices rise, consumers will replace more expensive items with less costly alternatives.
The opposite of this effect is known as the Income Effect as inferior quality items are pushed to the side.

Real Wage – The income of an individual after taking into account the effect of inflation on your purchasing power.
Ex. If you receive a 2% increase in pay 1 year and inflation rises 1%, then your salary increase was only 1%. It is the amount of goods and services you can buy today compared to the same amount of goods and services you could buy at a different time period.
Ex. If it costs you $2,000 more this year to buy the same goods and services i.e. bills, then your salary has actually decreased by $2K.

Marginal Product – Change in quantity of one extra unit of output.
Change in output that occurs when one more unit of input (labor) is added.

Marginal Revenue Product – The change in revenue that results from…...

...between people in our rapidly advancing generation. In Paul Dooley and Winnie Holzman’s play Post-Its (Notes on a Marriage), we watch as two young people who are in love and newly married, begin to leave each other post its notes when they have no time for communication with one another. The author successfully tells an amazing love story using a unique means of communication. According to Anne Maydan Nicotera, “communication is critical to inter-personal relationships” (Nicotera). The notes vary from topics such as one not wanting to wake the other as they leave early for work, for tasks that need to be completed throughout the day. The audience, through the reading of the post- its notes views the couple’s life as it goes through the early stages of a relationship, to having a child, to a downhill slide of their relationship, the steady reconstruction of a marriage, and eventually it goes on until one of the two passes on. By leaving these post-its notes, the unnamed couple manages to have a basis of communication upon which they both are able to agree upon. They manage to find a convenient and effective way to convey what they need to say to one another through post-its notes, and even though things get rough, and arguments ensue, they find their strength and return to one another. Their relationship is refound with a clean slate, and although there are occasional spats in the notes, the audience can see that their relationship is much easier once they settled their......

Note semester; I think you didn’t know how to sing when the note is really high. And the teacher will help you about this, and your chin always up when you sing but you never realized that.” So at the very beginning of this semester I changed a class to this class, and want to improve my singing skill. And just like my mother said that I can’t put my chin down when I was singing. And professor also pointed out this problem. And my facial expression was not very rich when I was singing, that seems like that I didn’t put myself in to that song. Just like a mission to complete. I worked on the chin problem and also the sight singing. Fortunately, the experience of playing the piano made me identify the tone accurate. And I don’t have to spend much time on working this. Therefore, I work hard on controlling my chin, and I still can’t adapt it at the very beginning. But through my hard working I can really handle it now. And as for sight singing, during this semester, I often singing before a mirror and practice my facial expression. And it was working. Now I think my facial expression is much better than before. And there is another point, when there was a really high note that I can’t reach it by my voice before. However, during this semester, I learned how to use my throat to reach that high note. Although I can’t describe how to do this in English, I really felt that was really changed. I can reach some really high note now. Time passed really fast, and this semester will......

...Notes : In the poem, as well as the movie, the two major female characters are Wealthow and Grendel's mother. Unlike the movie, neither of these characters have large roles in the poem. Both play their part but are described very little. Wealthow is often only called the "gold-ringed queen" and only exists to play "a noble woman who knew what was right" (Raffel, 31). Despite her noble status, Wealthow holds her tongue and is only mentioned when she serves Beowulf and his soldiers mead from a jeweled cup. Grendel's mother, on the other hand, plays a slightly bigger role, but only as an evil idenity. Her name is never revealed and she is only known as Grendel's mother, signifying that the male defines the female. Additionally, Grendel's mother is the only female character that poses a threat to Beowulf and his men. Unfortunately, she is portrayed as a "mighty water witch", insinuating that any woman who defied an man was evil and wicked (Raffel, 41). These two female characters demonstrate the Anglo-Saxon ideas that women should be figures rather than hold any real power. Notes how women have become stronger forces in the world, yet are still held back by men. In the movie, Grendel's mother is shown to be little more than a sex object in the eyes of men, which actual allows her to hold power over them. She is able to seduce Hrothgar and Beowulf, creating sons for her evil to live on through. These monsters eventually attack the men as the repercussions of the "sins of the......

...of Canada) just set the real interest rate on loans? The Bank of Canada (or the Fed) can set the short term nominal interest rate. This is called the funds rate(or overnight rate in Canada). The Bank of Canada can't set real interest rates directly because it can't set inflation expectations directly, even though expected inflation is closely tied to what the Bank of Canada is expected to do in the future, using its monetary policy. Also, in general, the Bank of Canada stays out of the business of setting nominal rates for longer-term instruments and instead allows financial markets (bond market, and other financial instruments) to determine longer-term interest rates. Q How do people form expectations about future inflation rate? Note: The discussion below is covered in Ch 6. People form expectations of inflation in different ways, depending on circumstances. To make informed decisions and to ensure that inflation does not erode the purchasing power of their assets, investors need to assess the rate of inflation expected by other market participants. Until recently, however, the only sources of information about long-term inflation expectations were surveys and the term structure of interest rates (the difference between the yield (the rate of return)on short term(say one year bond) bonds and long term bonds(say a ten year bond), neither of which were considered highly reliable. With the introduction of TIPS(Treasury Inflation Protected Securities) in 1997,......

...Chapter 2 Notes: 2.1: Concept: programs must be carefully designed before they are written. During the design process, programmers use tools such as pseudo code and flowcharts to create models of programs. Key terms: Logic Error: A mistake that does not prevent the programming from running, but it causes incorrect results. Debugging: finding and correcting the code that caused the error. Program Development Cycle: the process of creating, debugging, and possibly changing the original program. The steps are as follows: Design the program write the code correct syntax errors test the executable code Debug the code Repeat necessary Customer: The person, group or organization that is asking you to write a program Software Requirement: A single function that the program must perform in order to satisfy the customer Algorithm: A set of well-defined logical steps that must be taken to perform a task. It must be translated into code before it can be given to the computer. Pseudo code: “Fake Code” used to model programs Flow charts: Diagrams that that graphically depicts the steps the steps that take place in a program. There are three types of symbols in a flow chart: 1. Ovals (Appear at the top and bottom of a flow chart, and are also referred to as terminal symbols. The start terminal symbol marks the program’s starting point and the end terminal symbols marks the program’s ending point) 2. Parallelogram (Used for both input and output......

...accounting issues, where relevant. You should also evaluate the financial condition and performance of each company. You may wish to include projected financial statements and a valuation based on those projections. However, finance covers valuation in far more detail in finance, so valuation is not the crucial part of this write-up. Each group will have about 45 minutes for their presentation, depending on the number of groups. That will include five minutes for setup, twenty minutes for a presentation, and five minutes for questions. 4. Final Exam. The exam will consist of five or six questions taken from footnotes, financial statements, or articles. The exam may include any topic covered in this course. The exam is open-book, open-notes, and you may use computers, calculators, and the Internet (not including e-mail).

...attempt to dictate my response. In these kinds of situations, children very clearly understand that history matters. * When you go into a doctor’s office for the first time, you invariably have to fill out an information sheet that asks about your medical history. Some of these forms are very detailed, asking questions that require information from rarely accessed memory banks. Why does a doctor ask these questions? The doctor is trying to construct an accurate picture of your state of health. Your health is heavily influenced by the past. Your heredity, past behaviors, past experiences are all important determinants and clues to your present condition. Whenever you return to the doctor, he or she pulls out a file which contains all the notes from past visits. This file is a history of your health. Doctors understand very clearly that the past matters. * Some of you might be thinking that these examples are not very compelling because they both deal with the very recent past—they are not what we think of when we think of history. Let me give one final example that is more to the point. In 1917 the Communists took control of Russia. They began to exercise control over how the history of their country ought to be told. They depicted the tsar as oppressive and cruel. The leaders of the revolution, on the other hand, were portrayed in a very positive light. The Communist government insisted that these leaders, and in particular Lenin, understood more clearly than any one......

...The Depreciation of the RMB against the USD By: Hasnaa Taih Course: ECN 450 Date: 28/03/2011 China has a high level of policy intervention in the depreciation of the Renminbi (RMB) or (CNY). The depreciation of the RMB against the United States of America’s Dollar (USD) puts the USA’s firms and factories at a massive competitive disadvantage (China Currency Overview, 2010). There are two economists’ viewpoints when it comes to the undervaluation or overvaluation of the RMB against the USD and against other world currencies. There are economists that argue that the RMB is overvalued against some world currencies beside the Euro and the USD (Yuan is Overvalued, not Undervalued: report, 2010). Other economists argue that the RMB is undervalued against the USD, and this would be the major focus of this research paper. The RMB’s depreciation allows China to unfairly gain trade advantages over other trading nations. Economists views varies on the level at which the RMB’s undervaluation affect other Chinese trading partners. But most economists agree that currency flexibility would be of great help to decrease global imbalances (China Currency Overview, 2010). This research paper will discuss the different component of the Chinese protectionism policy for its exchange rate, and its effects on other nations such as the USA. The focus will be in showing the advantages and disadvantage for the USA and China in the trading balance. Historical background of the......
