Please come up with an appropriate title for this paper. I have provided you with previous assignments I did for this course because you might need it. I don’t have the textbook and I don’t think you will need it. But you have to do additional research on your own. Thank you.
The Economist magazine has observed that the price of Big Macs is systematically positively related to a country’s income level, just as is the general price level. Now go to The Economist’s Big Mac standard website, at http://www.economist.com/content/big-mac-index, and download the Excel spreadsheet containing the data on under/overvaluation of currencies. Furthermore, go to the World Bank’s World Development Indicators website, http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/, and find the most recent data on GNI (Gross National Income) per capita, PPP, for all countries.
Use these data, together with The Economist data on Big Mac dollar prices, to make a graph of income per capita (horizontal axis) versus dollar Big Mac price (vertical axis).
What do you find? (select only 20 countries and the date 2018)
Conduct a discussion essay and answer:
1. An important assumption underlying the DD-AA model is that other things equal, a real depreciation of the home currency immediately improves the current account, while a real appreciation causes the current account immediately to worsen.
2. Explain graphically under what conditions it happens with a lag by explaining the J curve? (Chapter 17)
Please note two things. First, answer one (1) question in each section. Second, the assessment of your essay will depend, in part, on the strength of your discussion of economic reasoning within the approach(es) you select.
Discuss how the rationale of comparative advantage is supposed to enhance economic growth, employment and alleviate poverty through international trade. How has trade liberalisation lead to rising inequality, stubborn trade imbalances and dependency? In your view, how could trade policies be formulated to avoid these ill effects?
What is financialization? How could it weaken the effectiveness of fiscal and monetary policies to promote economic and financial stability? Could this phenomenon justify a role for industrial policy?
Under what condition(s) will inflation occur according to Modern Money Theory? In your opinion, are its arguments more Keynesian or monetarist in orientation? Why do central banks hesitate to adopt this approach?
Discuss three types of market-oriented policies to combat climate change. How might these solutions become less effective if the social embeddedness of markets is considered? Are there non-market solutions which may be more effective?
Discuss how eco-communities and circular economies would facilitate an ecological transition. In your opinion, what are their key limitations? What types of policy might overcome these limitations?
Discuss the ways Green New Deals/Green Deals will challenge the fiscal positions of national governments. How could sustainability of the national debt be achieved in this context? What are the political challenges to implementing Green New Deals/Green Deals?

You are representing the United States as part of a working Committee convened to examine the issue of Globalization. Your first order of business is to propose the top three areas for consideration by the committee. Because not all countries share the same priorities, you must defend your proposals and persuade the Committee of the importance of addressing your issues above others. In doing so, you are particularly aware that you are representing the Global North and representatives from the Global South are also on the Committee. Once the Committee agrees to examine your issues, you should propose solutions to the problems you have identified. You must back-up your solutions using theories of globalization by the respected authors you have read on the subject. After your solutions are developed, you meet with members of civil society to present your solutions. Academic leaders, representatives from non-governmental organizations, international representatives, and business leaders will provide you with feedback.
Your double-spaced paper will address the following issues:
What are the top three areas you believe the Committee should address?
Why do these issues merit attention compared to other major issues?
What are the solutions you propose?
How will members of civil society respond to your proposal? Include at least one reaction likely from a representative of the Global North and one reaction likely from a representative of the Global South, describing the distinct impact your proposals will likely have on each region.
MAKE CERTAIN YOU ANSWER THE QUESTIONS… Don’t ignore them or try to make them into some other question. Not answering the question is the leading cause of failing grades.
This project is modeled on the work of the Inter-Parliamentary Union. http://www.ipu.org/parline/reports/instance/2_267.htm
Your paper must be at a minimum of 10-12 pages (the Title Page and Reference pages do not count towards the minimum limit).
Scholarly and credible references should be used. A good rule of thumb is at least 2 scholarly sources per page of content.
Type in Times New Roman, 12 point and double space.
Students will follow the current Turabian Style as the sole citation and reference style used in written work submitted as part of coursework.
Points will be deducted for the use of Wikipedia or encyclopedic type sources. It is highly advised to utilize books, peer-reviewed journals, articles, archived documents, etc.
All submissions will be graded using the assignment rubric.
Find an article on the economy from any media source. Rewrite/summarize the message by using economic terms, models, theories, and principles from the semester’s text book. The idea is to be academic in your analysis of the article. Paper should be only 1 page, double spaced with no format requirement. Please include the link to your article. Article can be new or old.
To prepare for this discussion:
Find a new drug, treatment, or medical device that has been reviewed by the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review(ICER) and in a public newspaper such as the New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, or Wall Street Journal.
On the ICER website:
Review the information about the organization and their methods and processes.
Go to “Assessments” and select one of the more recently completed assessments.
Check for articles in the media about the ICER assessment topic you chose to be sure that you will have a media report to compare with the ICER evaluation.
Submit an initial post that includes the following:
Your analysis of the extent to which the public media adequately report on the cost benefits of the drug, device, or treatment and whether there is a bias that you discern in the omissions or inaccuracies.
If the articles discuss pricing and pricing controversies, how do you see the economic principles discussed in Dewar (2017) driving the pricing decisions? If you think that there is a bias, explain why.
Your initial post should be 500–700 words, reference at least 2 scholarly resources, and use APA formatting for citations and references.
(1) Based on the Stage 1 of your literature review, you need to
narrow down your broad research question to some specific one(s).
Please make sure that you specify clearly in your document ”what
is/are your particular research question(s)?”.
(2) According to your research question, search and download the
sample data for your empirical analysis. Provide a rationale why you
want to use such sample data in your research project.
(3) According to your research question, propose or construct the
model(s) for your empirical analysis. Provide a detailed descriiption
of the model. More importantly, provide a rationale why the model
is suitable in terms of your research question.
(4) At this stage, I do not put any restrictions on the page limits
and format. In other words, I care more about the contents instead
of “whether it is single-spaced or double-spaced”.
This week’s discussion focuses on the financial and economic decisions hospitals face in our current healthcare system. For your initial post, explain how cost-shifting impacts the flow of hospital monies. Describe “cream skimming” and determine if it is an ethical business practice, particularly in healthcare economics. How do Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements apply to these practices? What impact do these reimbursement systems have on a hospital’s budget?
Effectively communicate economic theory and concepts.
Identify and solve microeconomic problems using economic theory and methodology.
Illustrate the impact of scarcity and choice with economic models.
Analyze the differences between comparative and absolute advantage and demonstrate how trade can be beneficial with both.
Analyze the impacts of the determinants on the demand and supply models.
Illustrate market equilibrium on the demand and supply model.
Analyze the impact of market failure on demand and supply.
Assess the impact of elasticity on consumers and producers.
Compare and contrast the impact of the costs of production on the market structures (pure competition; pure monopoly; monopolistic competition; and oligopoly).
Illustrate the changes on the cost curves.
