Dolamore (2011) claim that a discretionary fiscal policy can be countercyclical and used to stimulate aggregate demand. To illustrate, when the economy is below full-employment level, the government can impose a tax cut or/and increase their spending/expenditure in order to eliminate the recessionary gap. In this case, the discretionary policy is expansionary, as presented in the following figure. As shown in figure below, short run aggregate supply cuts initial aggregate demand (AD0) at a below full-employment level. An increase in government

President Trump’s tax reforms have increased consumer spending, number of jobs, and the increase of the production of businesses. The tax reform called the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, has benefitted 33 low-tax states more than it has benefitted the 17 high-tax states, but this reform is just the beginning because President Trump is still fighting for reforms.
The Keynesian Theory of Macroeconomics states that the government should play a positive role in the stabilization of the economy. I personally feel like President Trump’s tax reforms are playing a positive role because he is creating jobs. In the

1. Define and give specific examples of transaction demand for money and asset demand for money
a. Transaction demand for money is people hold money for everyday transactions. For example, lunch money and bus fee would be a transaction demand. Asset Demand for Money is people hold money since it is less risky than other assets. For example, there is a recession happening and people don’t invest in anything because they don’t want to lose all of their money.

Economics IA2 - Economic Growth - US economic growth hits fastest rate since
Economic growth is an increase in real gross domestic product (GDP) or the real
quantity of goods and services produced over a period of time, usually a year. There are
two types of economic growth: actual and potential growth. The United States of
America’s (USA) economy grew at its fastest pace in four years in the second quarter of
2018, expanding at an annualised rate of 4.1%. There are several reasons and
consequences of this economic growth that I will analyse.
Firstly, the US government implemented expansionary fiscal policies to increase

By the way, I strongly agree with the last two paragraphs in this article. The trade war is also a kind of war, there must be sacrifices. The problems are whether the long terms benefits worth the cost, and can the benefits be sustained. Even American business loss more than gains now, if the trade restrictions can truly revive the American steel business and relative business, these policies will be successful and historical and have long term positive impacts to the American economy.

simulation can be used when making purchasing decisions as well as when selling a good. This information could be used in a business setting to ensure pricing is appropriate, optimize performance, and maximize profitability. An understanding of microeconomics and macroeconomics can help to forecast the business and make effective decisions to run a successful business. If major changes are made, it impacts the entire market. Both microeconomic and macroeconomic principles are important to the decision- making process of a business. The simulation has increased my knowledge with the realistic examples provided and demonstrated the effect supply and demand have on microeconomics and macroeconomics principles.ReferencesUniversity of Phoenix.

The Great depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930sbeginning in the United States. The timing of this depression varied across nations. In most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline. The Great Depression started in the United States after a major fall in stock prices that began around September 4, 1929

The distinction between nominal and real GDP (16 marks)
In macroeconomics, the distinction between nominal and real GDP is a threshold concept and is crucial in analysing economic data.
Nominal GDP (current-price GDP) is the actual value of GDP and so captures the monetary value of the economy’s output. It is affected over time by both changes in prices and in the volume of what is produced. So, for example, nominal GDP in 2017 would be the value of a country’s output at 2017 prices. The same principle applies to other years. Hence, no account is made for the effect of inflation, rather the effect of inflation is incorporated within these figures. In 2017 the nominal (or actual) value of

The formal study of macroeconomics is linked
to the writings of John Maynard Keynes, who
during the Depression, the global Depression of the 1930s,
wrote that the aggregate economy might be in disequilibrium,
or at least stuck in a state of high, persistent unemployment.
To that end, the government may need to take
measures to address the problem of unemployment
and the stagnation of the economy.
This is really the first formal study of the macro-economy.
Thus, you can see why, while scarcity has led to economics and its challenges
as the oldest of practicing disciplines, practicing subjects.
It really is one of the newest of those formally studied.

Ernest Hemingway’s Hills like White Elephants
The short story Hills like White Elephants by Ernest Hemingway is a story about a man and woman who are sitting at a bar at a small train station somewhere in Spain. They seem to be having a heated conversation about a mysterious “operation”. The author never explicitly says what the issue is between the man and woman, but it can be assumed it is about a huge and personal decision they have to make because of the literary devices the author uses. Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey

The postcard dates back to 1915 and portrays a beautiful building, complete with red bricks and white columns. Many of the insane asylums around this time were built similarly, but even their picturesque exterior could not hide the horrors which occurred within. Insane asylums built in the early to mid 1900s were still getting on their feet, and many of them encountered problems with patient care early on

Fitzgerald purposefully portrays Jay Gatsby and Tom Buchanan in contrasting ways to emphasise the variety of money within the American market, during the era in which the novel is set. A major difference between the two men is ‘new money’ and ‘old money’, where Gatsby represents ‘new money’, but Daisy and Tom represent ‘old money’. The contrast between the two comes down to where the money originated from; "Old money" families have fortunes dating from the 19th century or before, have built up powerful and influential social connections and tend to hide their wealth and

Fredrich Nietzche once said “The individual has always struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the the privilege of owning yourself.” In my opinion, I believe this quote is true. Many people feel like they have to be a certain way for society to like them. When in reality, they want to be true to to themselves, but they are fearful of judgement.

How has genetic engineering worked until now, and what are the limitations?
Generally it uses what’s known as a bacterial vector. In simple terms, you take the stretch of DNA you want to insert into an organism – say, for example, the DNA that makes a carrot produce vitamin A. You insert it into a bacterium, usually agrobacterium tumefaciens, and you introduce that bacterium into the organism you want to modify, say a rice plant.

In developed nations such as the United States, polite phrases and etiquette such as “Nice to meet you” or “How are you?” are friendly and useful for small talk, but they are completely empty of true meaning and goodwill due to centuries of repetition, and should be avoided as they are a waste of words and breath if a person does not truly mean it.
Common phrases such as “please” and “thank you” have lost their meaning. They act only as the default frame of conversations, but they have no substance or sincerity.

Throughout the years, policing has evolved in many ways that people couldn’t have even imagined. During the beginning of policing in America, officers were known as “watchmen”, and were volunteer workers. This method proved to be ineffective for crime fighting, and many watchmen were only doing the job to avoid military service (Gaines, Kappeler, and Vaughn 1999). It was not until 1838 that the first municipal police force was established, which was in the city of Boston, and later followed by New York City in 1845 (Harring, 1983). Once established, volunteer

Audism is not an ‘-ism’ that is brought to the media’s attention often.
