[Industrial regulation pertains to the government regulation of firms’ prices or rates within industries. These regulations are in existence to prevent companies from forming a monopoly, to promote competition and achieve allocative efficiency.] (Brue, 2011)
In the mid-1800’s industry began to grow and many companies were becoming monopolies by being dominant firms in their industry. They would drive up prices by using questionable tactics. Different businesses and consumers began to complain to the government about the unfairness of prices The government responded with the Sherman Act of 1890 making both monopoly and conspiracies to restrain trade criminal offenses. While the Sherman Act was for breaking up Monopolies, there was nothing in place to stop companies from using practices that would form a monopoly. Therefore, the government came up with the Clayton Act of 1914 this strengthened the Sherman Act by making it illegal for firms to engage in such practices.
The communication, energy and water where industries were taking advantage of consumers. These three entities each have either have a high barrier to entry or is so unique that competitors stay out, they are therefor considered Natural Monopolies. They are business where the cost of service and or product can create a cost to the consumer that is lowest when created on a large scale typically with a single source supplier. A natural monopoly usually occurs when the first company to bring the service and or product to market that is in such demand and is still so unique that competition cannot easily survive. One example of a natural monopoly is AT&T, The cost of infrastructure (to run wiring to every home) did not allow any other company to enter the market. So AT&T at one point was the only local telephone services provider for the entire United States, until the company was split up by the government.
Another concern that is monitored by government regulation is Oligopoly, where just a few companies control the entire industry. The Airline industry is a good example of an Oligopoly, where the government needed to step and help control pricing and fees.
Industrial or economical regulation, is here to protect the consumer from price gouging on products and or services that customers need from a natural monopoly. Each company is required to play by the same set of rules and must conform to the industrial regulating body that oversees them. These rules affect how much a company can charge for its services, where and how it can market its services even to the point of requiring a company to enter into sharing or privately own resources. The breakup of AT&T fell under these guidelines, they now need to lease the line that is ran to your home that they own to other companies to allow them to enter the market.
[Social regulation is concerned with the conditions under which goods and services are produced, the impact of production on society, and the physical qualities of the goods themselves.] (McConnell B. C., (2011-01-01))
Social regulation is another aspect of Industrial regulation this catigory includes pollution, product safety, worker safety, and discrimination. The regulatory agencies include The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NTSA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and Consumer Product Safety Commission, to deal with social problems.

(McConnell B. C., (2011-01-01))
Food and Drug Administration (FDA)[ is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.] (fda.gov) By regulating theses the government is ensuring the public’s health and safety.
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)[is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. It is also illegal to discriminate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit.] (eeoc.gov) By enforcing these laws the public is protected from discrimination in the work place.
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is here [to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.] (osha.gov) By using theses OSHA can ensure the health and safety of employees.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is [designed to promote public health by protecting our Nation's air, water, and soil from harmful pollution. EPA accomplishes its mission by a variety of research, monitoring, standard setting, and enforcement activities. EPA also coordinates and supports research and antipollution activities of State and local and tribal governments, private and public groups, individuals, and educational institutions. EPA also monitors the operations of other Federal agencies for their impact on the environment.] (epa.gov)
The four parts of antitrust legislation are the Sherman Act, the Clayton Act, the Federal Trade Commission/the Wheeler-Lea Act, and the Celler-Kefauver Act.
The Sherman Act is the Federal antitrust law of 1890 that makes monopoly and conspiracies to restrain trade criminal offenses. (McConnell B. C., (2011-01-01)) This act has two sections, section one that states “Every contract, combination in the form of a trust or otherwise, or conspiracy, in restraint of trade or commerce among the several States, or with foreign nations is declared to be illegal.” (McConnell B. C., (2011-01-01)) Section two states “Every person who shall monopolize, or attempt to monopolize, or combine or conspire with any person or persons, to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the several states, or with foreign nations, shall be deemed guilty of a felony” (as later amended from “misdemeanor”). (McConnell B. C., (2011-01-01)).
The Clayton Act is the Federal antitrust law of 1914 that strengthened the Sherman Act by making it illegal for firms to engage in certain specified practices. (McConnell B. C., (2011-01-01))
There are four sections to this act that both straighten and make the Sherman Act more clear, they are sections 2, 3,7, and 8.
Section 2- outlaws price discrimination when such discrimination is not justified on the basis of cost differences and when it reduces competition.
Section 3- prohibits tying contracts, in which a producer requires that a buyer purchase another (or others) of its products as a condition for obtaining a desired product.
Section 7- prohibits the acquisition of stocks of competing corporations when the outcome would be less competition.
And
Section 8- prohibits the formation of interlocking directorates—situations where a director of one firm is also a board member of a competing firm—in large corporations where the effect would be reduced competition.

The Federal Trade Commission/the Wheeler-Lea Act the Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914 allowed the (FTC) investigate to unfair competitive practices of firms, to hold hearings on the complaints of such practices, and to issue cease-and-desist orders when firms are found to engage in such practices. (McConnell B. C., (2011-01-01)) . While the Wheeler-Lea Act is a Federal law of 1938 that amended the Federal Trade Commission Act by prohibiting and giving the commission power to investigate unfair and deceptive acts or practices of commerce (such as false and misleading advertising and the misrepresentation of products). (McConnell B. C., (2011-01-01)).
[The Celler-Kefauver Act amended the Clayton Act, Section 7, which prohibits a firm from merging with a competing firm (and thereby lessening competition) by acquiring its stock. Firms could evade Section 7, however, by instead acquiring the physical assets (plant and equipment) of competing firms. The Celler-Kefauver Act closed that loophole by prohibiting one firm from obtaining the physical assets of another firm when the effect would be reduced competition. Section 7 of the Clayton Act now prohibits anticompetitive mergers no matter how they are undertaken..] (McConnell B. C., (2011-01-01))

Three main regulatory agencies oversee the industrial regulation in the United States. Numerous smaller agencies are called upon to specialize in specific areas while these larger ones have broad scope. The main three agencies are the Federal Trade Commission, The Securities and Exchange commission and The Federal Communication Commission.
The FTC is the agency that regulates companies and their compliance with federal law. This agency has final say in how companies operate, overseeing of monopolies in industries and general consumer protections with the backing of the federal government.
The Security and Exchange Commission(SEC) is responsible for the financial observance and fair practices of companies working in the United States (or those that do business here).
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is the regulatory commission responsible for the wireless and wire communications in the United States. It is a creation by Congress as an Industrial regulatory agency in the aftermath from the AT&T/ Bell monopoly splits. The FCC works towards six primary goals in the areas of broadband, competition, the spectrum, the media, public safety and homeland security.
The Communications Act of 1934 and as amended by the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (amendment to 47 U.S.C. §151) state that it is the FCC's mission to "make available so far as possible, to all the people of the United States, without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex, rapid, efficient, Nation-wide, and world-wide wire and radio communication services with adequate facilities at reasonable charges."[sic] The Act furthermore provides that the FCC was created "for the purpose of the national defense" and "for the purpose of promoting safety of life and property through the use of wire and radio communications. (www.fcc.gov)
It is still a process to determine if the regulations to industry, social and Anti-Trust are a positive or negative force in the lives of consumers. The past several years we have seen a dynamic shift towards “De-regulation” from consumers and businesses alike.

...IWT1 Task 1 Impressionism and Post Impressionism By WGU student In early 19th century, the French government controlled the academies and salons of paintings. The impressionism took place in second half of 19th century, which was results of French artists rejecting the traditional government sanctioned academic painting that was dominating their arts at the time. The first independent art exhibition was held in 1874 for one month. Few of the famous artists’ who participated and help organize this exhibition was Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renior, Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro along with 25 other artists. They displayed approximately 165 paintings during this exhibit. This group of artists referred themselves as the Anonymous Society of Painters, Engravers, Sculptors, etc. The artists from Impressionism period intentionally painted which captured the nuances of light and beauty of natures. These artists were against painting a picture of moral messages, as the artists of past they mostly painted in studio. Impressionist had very firm understating of color theory, optics, nature of light, and optical mixing (created much more vivid colors in the eyes of the viewers). The invention of photography had profound influence on the artist of the day, the way they handle perspective in the relationship between subject matters in space. The invention of photography essentially freed these painters to become more abstract with their subject matter, they......

...Task 5 CFO Presentation A1. Key Points The profitability of the Custom Snowboards Inc can be seen in the following areas: net sales, gross profits and net earnings. Net sales increased between years 12 and 13 by 3.21% and again between years 13 and 14 by 1.91%, as shown in the horizontal analysis line 10. The company has continued to grow its net sales for the past three years. Custom Snowboards Inc has the ability to continue increasing net sales. Gross profits have remained constant at 30.4%, as shown on the vertical analysis line 12, between years 12, 13, and 14. This demonstrates that the company has kept the margin consistent each year with the cost of goods sold which can be seen in the horizontal analysis lines 11 and 12. These two lines show that between years 12 and 13, the cost of goods sold increased at 3.21%, the same rate that the gross profit increased. And again between yeas 13 and 14, the gross profit increased the same as the cost of goods sold at 1.9%. Custom Snowboards Inc has not allowed the cost of overhead to rise faster than the sales increase. The net earnings of Custom Snowboards Inc have decreased over the last three years. Line 41 of the horizontal analysis shows a 14.42% decrease between years 12 and 13, and a 27.79% decrease between years 13 and 14. The decreases in net earnings have been mainly due to the increases in administrative salaries and executive compensations. As the company has grown, so has the need compensate......

...LIT1 Task A SOLE PROPRIETORSHIP: •         LIABILITY – The owner and the business are considered as one and so the owner has unlimited liability for the business. Therefore the all of the owner’s personal assets, the business’s assets and the business’s future earnings may be at risk. •         INCOME TAXES – All income for the business goes on the owner’s personal income tax returns whether federal, state or local. One advantage of the sole proprietorship is that the business is not a separate entity and therefore is only taxed once on this income, and another advantage is that all business liabilities may be written off as expenses to offset income. Asset depreciation is an example of this. •         LONGEVITY/CONTINUITY – Once the business owner dies, the business is discontinued. He may will the assets of the business to someone else who is then required to create a new entity. •         CONTROL – The Owner has complete control of the business. He can make decisions without having to consult a partner or shareholders. The business owner may assign an employee to make decisions as well. •         PROFIT RETENTION – The Owner keeps all profits from the business and is subject to all losses. Therefore, the owner is allowed to not only recoup his investment into the business, but is also allowed to keep all profits from the business to spend or save as he wishes. •         LOCATION – The owner can simply decide to operate in another state, but must comply with......

Option A is a home-based facility which charges $9.00 per hour that the child is at the home. Option B is a center-based facility which charges $150 for the first 20 hours and then charges $10 per hour thereafter. Due to a new promotion, Jenny will be required to work more hours away from home. Which facility will cost less for Jenny to have her son in daycare for a work week (40 hours)? B. I. h = how many hours of child care is needed = 40 f = the flat hourly rate charge t = total amount due for the week Option A: f * h = t a. 9 * 40 = $360 Option B: 150 + f(h-20) = t, for h >=20 b. 150 + 10(40-20) = $350 150 = t, for h < 20 c. 150 = total II. I set the hours to "h", the hourly fee to "f" and the total to "t". a. Option A: This option only has an hourly fee for each hour.

Key points from the company’s income statement, the financial risks and the ability to repay any loan taken must all be considered. The following will summarize the current financial statements of Custom Snowboards, Inc. Key Points Six key points (line items) that could impact the banks decision for loan approval for Custom Snowboards, Inc. for the European expansion are: Profitability: * Net Sales – Net sales rose by .49% ($32,000) from Year 12 to Year 13; however, the company’s net sales declined in Year 14 by 3.40% (-$156,800) from Year 13. The Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) remained constant at 69.6% of the Net Sales in each year.

In order to properly understand the breadth of the gun control topic, it would be wise to also properly understand the history of gun controls in the U.S. as well as what gun control actually is. Gun Control seems to have a slightly differing definition depending on which source is defining the term. For the purposes of this essay, the following sources will be used: dictionary.com defines the term “gun control” as the “government regulation of the sale and ownership of firearms”, while Merriam-webster’s website defines gun control as “regulation of the selling, owning, and use of guns” (Gun control, n.d.). Each of the definitions states that the regulation of guns by the unspecified government would seek to control the sale, ownership, and/or use of a gun. In relationship to the United States, there have been several famous and infamous laws written to target gun control in one way or the other. To some, the......

...EGT Task 1 A. Profit maximization can be calculated from the following 2 approaches: 1. Total Revenue to Total Cost (TR/TC) approach a. Total revenue is calculated by multiplying price times quantity (TR = P x Q) b. Total cost can be calculated a variety of ways, i.e. fixed (TFC) and variable (TVC) costs and also capital and labor composition costs (TC = TFC + TVC) c. Profit is total revenue minus total cost (TR-TC) d. In order to maximize profit, need to find largest gap between total revenue and total cost (TR & TC) 2. Marginal revenue to marginal cost (MR/MC) approach a. Instead of looking for the largest gap in a profit maximization direction, you need to equate marginal revenue is equated to marginal cost (MR = MC) b. The term “Marginal” means next incremental unit c. Marginal revenue is the change that takes place in total revenue divided by the change in quantity (MR = ∆TR/∆Q) d. Marginal Cost is the change that occurs in the total cost divided by the change in quantity (MC = ∆TC/∆Q) B. The calculation used to determine marginal revenue is MR = ∆TR/∆Q, where MR = Marginal Revenue, ∆TR = Change in Total Revenue and ∆Q = Change in Quantity. 1. Marginal Revenue increases when Company A goes from producing no widgets to 1 widget. 2. Marginal Revenue decreases when Company A produces 2 or more additional widgets, which is indicative of a monopolistic market. 3.

Biochem Task 5 Wgu

...Biochemistry: Task 5 Christi Corder 000356780 November 1, 2015 A.  There are three sources of fatty acids in the body. One of these sources is adipose tissue, in which adipose tissues release tissue fatty acids. Another source is the liver, which makes fatty acids, which travel through the bloodstream. Dietary fat is also a source. Three stages are involved in the breakdown of fatty acids to produce ATP. These are beta oxidation, the citric acid cycle, and the electron transport chain. A fatty acid is a long chain of carbons and hydrogens with a carboxylic acid group at the end. In beta oxidation, the fatty acid is broken down into two carbon units, which produce acetyl-CoA, and electrons and hydrogens are removed. The first step of beta oxidation occurs when the fatty acid is activated by the addition of a CoA subunit and the fatty acid is broken down into carbon units called acetyl-CoA and electrons and hydrogens are removed. The electrons and hydrogens are carried by NADH and FADH-2 to the electron transport chain and are used to make ATP. NADH and FADH-2 are also produced during the CAC and these also enter the electron transport chain and are used to produce ATP from ADP and inorganic phosphate. Also, the hydrogens from NADH and FADH-2 combine with oxygen and the electrons to form water. (O’malley, 2014). B.  One difference between saturated and unsaturated fatty acids is that saturated fatty acids have as many hydrogens as can possibly fit around......

Wgu Biochemistry Task 3

...WGU Biochemistry Task 3 A1) There are several differences between the oxygenated and deoxygenated states of hemoglobin. One difference can be seen in the conformational state of the hemoglobin protein. When oxygenated, the protein takes on the T (tense) state; and when deoxygenated, the protein takes on the R (relaxed) state (Hudon-Miller, 2012b). Another difference arises when oxygen binds to the hemoglobin, resulting in a change in the shape of the protein. In the deoxygenated state, the heme group forms a domed shape; and in the oxygenated state, the heme group takes on a planar shape (Hudon-Miller, 2012b). A2) The relationship between pH and the ability of hemoglobin to bind and release oxygen is referred to as the Bohr Effect. The blood’s pH level is greatly influenced by the carbon dioxide that is produced by most of the body’s cells during the citric cycle (Hudon-Miller, 2012d). Greater CO2 concentration lowers the blood’s pH level, making it more acidic. In turn, lower CO2 concentration increases the blood’s pH level, making it more basic. Since the lungs function involves breathing in oxygen and blowing out carbon dioxide, the lungs are absolutely crucial in maintaining the pH balance that the blood requires (Hudon-Miller, 2012d). While in the lungs, the hemoglobin becomes saturated with oxygen and slowly delivers it to the body’s tissues as it travels through the bloodstream. At the same time, the hemoglobin is also picking up the carbon dioxide that is......
