Q 1. What led the LEGO group to the edge of bankruptcy by 2004?
By the end of 2003 Lego was already facing crisis owing to dipping profits and declining market pool for toys. Lego had planned to expand into markets beyond building toys and needed huge investment to be made in it. But it found difficult to compete when fad players and other toy manufacturers were giving them stiff competition in a market that already was supposed to be giving lesser returns every year. This was mostly due to factors out of the control of Lego and other toy companies because, firstly, a research suggested that the demand of children who were primary customers of these companies were changing rapidly to fashionable and electronic products. They had lesser attention span and looked for instant gratification, and were lesser inclined to play with toys involving physical activity. Also Lego found it difficult to be competitive when its manufacturing base was in European markets while toy companies were moving to Far East and Middle East where labor was comparatively cheaper.
Management move by Lego: After Lego realized that it had to correct its declining profits, it decided to venture into new markets and imitate the success of Disney which had created a brand value for its customers through theme parks, accessories media and video games. Lego created an amusement park called LegoLand Windsor, came up with video...

In order to compete with other milkshake shacks on the same beach of the resort, the small shake in my shack is priced at $5.00, a medium shake costs $7.00, and a large shake is priced at $10.00. My shack offers classic flavors of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla, but also caters to eclectic tastes with raspberry, mocha, Oreo shakes and many other different flavors. I use chocolate, strawberry and other flavored syrup to provide the flavor chosen by customers. The data for milkshake costs is base on the study of existing restaurants, industry reports and research on expected minimum costs to be incurred in operating the business.
The cost of materials needed to make milkshakes is shown in table 1.

...Introduction
In this case we get an entire scenario about how the Japan deflation set in, what were the effects of the deflation on the economy as well as on the people of Japan. It also mentions about the various reasons because of which Japan was in such a tight grip of Deflation, Depression, Demographics and Debts Guides us through the steps taken by the government in order to curb this deflation. Imparts a great knowledge to us about the various economic terms like deflation, self-liquidating credit, Non-Self Liquidating Credit and how the people and economy of a country is affected by these.
Free markets economies are subject to cycles. Economic cycles consist of fluctuating periods of economic expansion and contraction as measured by a nation's gross domestic product (GDP). The length of economic cycles (periods of expansion vs. contraction) can vary greatly. The traditional measure of an economic recession is two or more consecutive quarters of falling gross domestic product. There are also economic depressions, which are extended periods of economic contraction such as the Great Depression of the 1930s.
From 1991 through 2001, Japan experienced a period of economic stagnation and price deflation known as "Japan's Lost Decade." While the Japanese economy outgrew this period, it did so at a pace that was much slower than other industrialized nations. During this period, the Japanese economy suffered from both a credit crunch and a liquidity trap....

RegressionAnalysis
Basic Concepts & Methodology
1. Introduction
Regressionanalysis is by far the most popular technique in business and economics for
seeking to explain variations in some quantity in terms of variations in other quantities, or to
develop forecasts of the future based on data from the past. For example, suppose we are
interested in the monthly sales of retail outlets across the UK. An initial dataanalysis would
summarise the variability in terms of a mean and standard deviation, but the variation from
outlet to outlet could be very large for a variety of reasons. The size of the local market, the
size of the shop, the level of competition, the level of advertising, etc.. would all influence the
sales volume from outlet to outlet. This is where regressionanalysis can be useful. A
regressionanalysis would seek to model the influence of these factors on the level of sales. In
statistical terms we would be seeking to regress the variation in sales ⎯ the dependent
variable ⎯ upon several explanatory variables such as advertising, size, etc..
From a forecasting point of view we can use regressionanalysis to develop predictions. If we
were asked to make a forecast for the monthly sales of a proposed new outlet in, say, Oxford,
we can simply compute the average outlet sales and put this...
