Scenario 1
In 150 to 200 words, explain your reasoning for the way you are planning on using Reserve Requirements. Be sure to address the following:

1. How Reserve Requirements affect the economy

2. How your action will affect economic growth

3. Why it is important to increase economic growth

4. Your rationale for the use of Reserve Requirements

At the end of the game, you will be provided with this information to give to your instructor.

Answer:
The reserve requirements that affect the economy are the lower the amount that the reserve charges bank will in return lower rates and allow banks to be able to lend easier to a person or persons. By allowing credit to be obtained easier, it will allow the economy to slowly increase and come out of the recession. It is important to increase economic growth, because the economy cannot survive in a recession or an area that is in a direct standstill. I believe that the lowering the reserve requirements is the best option, because it allows the economy to start to turn around and come out of the recession. An economy that has come to a standstill or a recession will have to have an economic change or the economy will not be able to come out of the recession and thrive to its fullest potential.

...Wendell Gordon ACC/290 July 26, 2012 Shonda Meadows For years people have debated on which one of the financial statements was the most important. The purpose of this paper is to identify the four basic financial statements and the purpose they serve. Throughout this paper I will breakdown how the different financial statements could be useful for managers and their employees. I will also discuss how the different financial statements could be beneficial for creditors and investors. To conclude the paper I will summarize it all up with a conclusion. The four basic financial statements are balance sheets, income statements, cash flow statements, and statements of shareholders’ equity. Balance sheets break down what all a company owes and owns at a particular period of time .Balance sheets also contain valuable information such as a company’s liabilities, shareholders equity, and assets. Balance sheets contain information at the end of a reporting period. Balance sheets do not contain the all the ins and outs to accounts during a reporting period. A balance sheet is also referred to as a statement of financial position. Income statements provide you with how much money a company made and spent over a period of time. Income statements also provide you with the cost and the expenses associated with earning money. The bottom line on an income statement provides you with the amount of money a company loss or made. The top line on an income statement provides you with the...

Many African Americans feel that they have been looked over for jobs because of their name and race. The research suggests that if your name sounds white you are more likely to get a job over a person that has a black sounding name. The research suggests that many times they are looked over because African Americans are perceived as being lazy. The research also suggests that when African Americans are discriminated against their health is affected in many ways. African Americans drink and smoke many times when they are stressed from work and when they feel that they are not treated fair at work. Many People that are discriminated against may experience depression, anxiety, and other negative outcomes. Studies show that African Americans do feel that they are passed over for promotions and many other things at their current jobs. And research shows that they sometimes know that their Caucasian coworkers are receiving more money than they are. And when it comes to pay at their jobs African Americans are paid less than Caucasians and people of a lighter skin......

How Reserve Requirements affect the economy 2. How your action will affect economic growth 3. Why it is important to increase economic growth 4. Your rationale for the use of Reserve Requirements At the end of the game, you will be provided with this information to give to your instructor. Answer: Reserve requirements help to maintain a stable banking system and ensure that banks are able to conduct day-to-day check-clearing and cash-withdrawal transactions. These requirements are also one of the three monetary policy tools that the Fed can use, in principle, to control the money supply. The other two are open market operations and the discount rate. By lowering the reserve requirement, the banks will have more to loan which will expand the money stock and in the short term lower interest rate which encourages consumers and investors to buy more. When people and investors are buying more this increases economic growth. Increasing economic growth is important because it keeps society moving in a positive direction. Economic growth also contributes to advancements and increases standards of living and lowers unemployment. I chose lowering the reserve requirements because this would stimulate lending, reduce unemployment, and increase overall income so that the economy could recover. Scenario 2 In 150 to 200...

Maglev has convenience - due to high frequency of service and the ability to serve central business districts, airports, and other major metropolitan area nodes. Maglev has improved comfort - with respect to air due to greater roominess, which allows separate dining and conference areas with freedom to move around. The absence of air turbulence ensures a consistently smooth ride. Maglev Evolution The concept of magnetically levitated trains was first identified at the turn of the century by two Americans, Robert Goddard and Emile Bachelet. By the 1930s, Germany's Hermann Kemper was developing a concept and demonstrating the use of magnetic fields to combine the advantages of trains and airplanes. In 1968, Americans James R. Powell and Gordon T. Danby were granted a patent on their design for a magnetic levitation train. Under the High-Speed Ground Transportation Act of 1965, the FRA funded a wide range of research into all forms of HSGT through the early 1970s. In 1971, the FRA awarded contracts to the Ford Motor Company and the Stanford Research Institute for analytical and experimental development of EMS and EDS systems. FRA-sponsored research led to the development of the linear electrical motor, the motive power used by all current maglev prototypes. In 1975, after Federal funding for high-speed maglev research in the United States was suspended, industry virtually abandoned its interest in maglev; however, research in low-speed...

...Without money now days, people would be miserable. Money solves lots of problems, and sometimes even causes the problems. We currently live in an economy in which we need to spend every dollar wisely. No one ever really wondered where money actually came from, how it all happened. How did a piece of paper gain the power to own a person’s soul? Before money, people bared. They simply exchanged a good service for another good service. For example, a bag of rice was exchanged for a bag of beans. Metal objects began being introduced as money in around 5000 B.C. The Lydian’s became the first in the Western world to make coins. Countries all around were beginning to use coins for different values. Metal was used because it was easy to deal with, work with and most importantly, could be recycled. It became easier for people to compare the cost of certain items people wanted using coins. The earliest known paper money started in China, in around AD 960. It became very common worldwide. Making money out of paper was an idea that was loved by all since it was of less value to make. Representative money was traded/exchanged for a certain amount of silver or gold depending on the value given. For most of the 19th and 20th centuries, the majority of currencies were based on money through the use of the gold standard. Soon, representative money moved on to be called Fiat money, which came from the Latin term ‘let it be done’. Money began to be given a value by government which...

...Money is one of the most important elements of economic science. It is truly a great invention for man. Every body is familiar with it and uses it in one form or the other. Although in final analysis, it is the real goods and services, which can satisfy our wants, but money is the intermediary. It is through money that we get access to goods produced by others. Money is running through economics system as blood is running in our body. In a way, money is much simple a nod common thing that even a child of two or three knows that money should be obtained and spent. But it is very difficult to define it. It may be defined as “Money is anything that we widely used in payments of debts” “Any thing which is widely accepted in payment for goods or in discharge of other kinds of obligations” (Robertson) “Money is the modern medium of exchange and the standard unit in which prices and debts are expressed.” (Samuelson) From the above definitions it is easy to conclude that money is any, material, which is commonly accepted and generally used as a medium if exchange for all types of transactions. Thus all kinds of currency notes and coins plus cheque deposits, etc can be regarded as money. FUNCTIONS The moneys primary functions are • Medium of exchange • Measure of value • And store of value MEDIUM OF EXCHANGE Money is used as an intermediary for trade, in order to avoid the inefficiencies of a barter system, which are sometimes referred to as the 'double...

...A decrease in the level of a currency in a floating exchange rate system due to market forces. Currency depreciation can occur due to any number of reasons – economic fundamentals, interest rate differentials, political instability, risk aversion among investors and so on. Countries with weak economic fundamentals such as chronic current account deficits and high rates of inflation generally have depreciating currencies. Currency depreciation, if orderly and gradual, improves a nation’s export competitiveness and may improve its trade deficit over time. But abrupt and sizeable currency depreciation may scare foreign investors who fear the currency may fall further, and lead to them pulling portfolio investments out of the country, putting further downward pressure on the currency. 1. Reserves and Borrowing. If the value of an exchange rate is falling and the government wants to maintain its original value it can use its foreign exchange reserves – e.g. selling its dollars reserves and purchase pounds. This purchase of Pound sterling should increase its value. 2. Borrow The government can also borrow foreign currency from abroad to be able to buy sterling. 3. Changing interest rates (In UK this is now done by the MPC) higher interest rates will cause hot money flows and increase demand for sterling. Higher interest rates make it relatively more attractive to save in the UK. 4. Reduce Inflation * Through either tight fiscal or Monetary policy Aggregate......

...Question one: For most people money is a fundamental reason to work because eit is measurable and tangible. Hence, it becomes a motivator by default though it may not be the primary one for many employees. People are motivated by different things.Some employees have financial goals, others have professional goals while some have personal goals. The same incentives cannot work for all. This essay outlines some of the reasons why cash is not always a suitable motivator for excellent employees. Daniel Pink in his book “Drive”, convincingly argues that money does not motivate employees. Generally, people are motivated to work harder when they have the ability to work on their own terms. This is equally visible in Herzbergs two factor motivaton theory. In this theory, Herzberg points out that motivator factors such as the work itself,achievement, recognition, responsibility and opportunities for advancement and growth are the source of work satisfaction. Herzberg futher states that a salary is a hygiene factor and will not motivate people. Howerver, when the organisation links a monetary reward, such as a merit bonus to the recognition of good performance, it acts as a motivator. This is not to suggest that money doesn’t motivate, in fact, to underplay the importance of money and benefits as motivation for workers would be a mistake. Daniel Pink states in his book that employees expect to be paid fairly, but over-paying employers do little to motivate them to work harder...

...ABSTRACT Maglev has been a long standing dream of railway engineers for the past century. These engineers envisioned a train that could float above its tracks. They saw the enormous potential for a train like this. The research on magnetic train which called maglev train was started in the beginning of the 1990 century. This concept lay dormant for about60 years. Then Japanese started their research on maglev train in the beginning of 1970 & constructed their first test line in 1997. German also started their research on maglev train in early 1970. It took them ten years to complete their first test line. The train works on the principle of electromagnetic effect. In this there is no friction between the train and track. The electromagnet on the underside of train pulls it up to the ferromagnetic stator on the track & levitates the train. The magnet on the side keeps the train from side to side. A computer changes the amount of current to keep the train 1 cm from the track. This means there is no friction between track & train. As it is high speed train compare to other types of train also noise level due to this train very less & energy consume is less, it is very convenient & beneficial to use. CHAPTER 1:-INTRODUCTION 1.1 History:- Magnetic levitation is the latest in transportation technology and has been the interest of many countries around the world. The idea has been around since 1904 when Robert Goddard, an American Rocket scientist, created...

Be sure to address the following: 1. How Reserve Requirements affect the economy 2. How your action will affect economic growth 3. Why it is important to increase economic growth 4. Your rationale for the use of Reserve Requirements At the end of the game, you will be provided with this information to give to your instructor. Answer: The action that I selected was to lower the reserve requirement. Lowering the reserve requirements allows the bank to free more funds for lending. This action also reduced the amount of money that the banks were required to keep in their reserves. This increased the money supply that is available for use to the economy and lowered the interest rate for consumers. This action will assist the economy by providing more relaxed funding for all consumers and will aid in sparking economic growth. With more money available and easier funding by the banks, consumers are able to spend as needed. In this case, both businesses and consumers thrive economically. Increasing the reserve would reverse would have a negative effect on the economy and would take money away from consumers and businesses and could lead to an economic downturn...
