Determinants of Demand Elasticity
There are a few determinants of the elasticity of demand, one being the availability for substitutes. From the case, the data that was provided for previous studies of student’s application to colleges, projects an upward sloping demand curve. Students have many choices when choosing a liberal arts college. From the data previously taken, when the cost is higher, students believe it must be a better school.
Demand elasticity measures the percentage change in demand given a percentage change in its price (Brickley, et al., 2009, p. 111). When evaluating Susan’s analysis, it is important to first recognize what the arc of elasticity is from her recommendation. Price elasticity’s are found between zero and infinity. In the case of Susan Hansen increasing the tuition and reducing federal aid to students, the arc of elasticity is 0.8%. With an increase in tuition pricing and Susan’s projection of revenue increase, the price elasticity is inelastic. Regarding the price changes, the quantity demanded is less responsive to changes in price. Therefore, Susan should raise the tuition rates to $25,000.

...Kayla Rodney MBA 575 Case4 Questions The University of Northwestern Ohio Jinjian Garment Factory Motivating Go-Slow Workers Piecework is a suitable form of paying employees in the garment factory, however it is not the best form of payment for the Shenzhen factory. The piecework system employed by the factory in Shenzhen was well suited to the nature of the work. Each worker was assigned to a specific job and earned an exact amount derived from the number of finished pieces times the price of that particular job to finish the procedure (piecework). Ones pay was strictly linked with ones performance (Seijts, 2006). Though there are many great aspects to piecework such as productivity and motivation to earn more money by working faster there are also drawbacks. Workers have been known to work slower on orders to force management to pay them more to work faster so that the order would not be late. Thus, in order for piecework to be beneficial for the company, management must understand what motivates majority of their workers. Since piecework is based on performance, then it is important that employees are motivated to work at a decent pace so that the company is not put in jeopardy with a late shipment. As with every situation, there are always positives and negatives. Piecework employees are under a great deal of stress during seasonal production and the company is at risk for many organizational consequences. One way to help...
...Identify and analyse the environmental factors in this
factors outlined in this case are:

state industrial development board play an important role in such projects.

election focus was shifted from Basti to Saharanpur.
c) Too much paper work required to start the new production
2. Who were all responsible for this tragic end?
Answer: The organizations responsible for the tragic end
a) Uttar Pradesh government: UP government should have
analysed the complete situation before hand. They should have made sure that
all the necessary facilities to run a industry was in place.
b) Power Ministry: Power ministry should have given high
priority to this project as it would add to the industrialization of india.
Success of such projects would have encouraged others to take up entrepreneurship
as an option.
c) Uttar Pradesh
Financial Corporation (UPFC): UPFC should have insured all the loans with some
insurance company. This would not add to the burden of the entrepreneurs as
they had no money to pay the hefty amount since the business never took-off.
The loans could have been recovered from insurance companies in case...
...Case # 4Chapter 2.
Issue: There are two parties involved in the case dispute the one is called plaintiff, according to Kubasek. , Browne, , Herron, , Giampetro-Meyer, , Barkacs, , Dhooge, , & Williamson, (2012) the definition of plaintiff is, “ the person or party who initiates a lawsuit (an action) before a court by filing a complaint with the clerk of the court against the defendant(s). Also known as claimant or complainant,” (page, G22). In this case Jarold Daniel Friedman is plaintiff; he is the one who initiates the lawsuit before the court against the pharmaceutical warehouse, so warehouse is defendant, as according to Kubasek. , Browne, , Herron, , Giampetro-Meyer, , Barkacs, , Dhooge, , & Williamson, (2012) , “The person , party , or entity against whom a civil or criminal lawsuit is filed in a court of law,” (Page G-7). The issue of this case is discrimination on the base of religion as the condition for giving permanent job is to get vaccination which is against the religion practice of the plaintiff, so he raised this issue in the court against the defendant who is employers.
Rule of Law: the rule of law in this case is about religious discrimination, as According to (U.S Equal Employment, 2014), “religious discrimination involves treating a person, an applicant or employee, unfavorably because of his or her religious belief. The law forbids discrimination...
...income during the certification.
Another option is going back to school for an MBA degree. With an MBA degree, Natasha expects to be promoted to a managerial position in her current firm. The managerial position pays $20,000 a year more than her current position. She expects that this salary differential will also grow at a rate of 3% per year for as long as she keeps working. The evening program, which will take three years to complete, costs $25,000 per year, due at the beginning of each of her three years in school. Because she will attend classes in the evening, Natasha doesn't expect to lose any income while she is earning her MBA if she chooses to undertake the MBA.
1) Determine the interest rate she is currently earning on her inheritance by going to Yahoo Finance (http://finance.yahoo.com) and clicking on the 10-year bond link in the market summary. Then go to “Historical Prices” and enter the appropriate date, June 1. 2009, to obtain the closing yield or interest rate that she is earning. Use this interest rate as the discount rate for the remainder of this problem.
2) Create a timeline in Excel for her current situation as well as the certification program and MBA degree options using the following assumptions:
• Salaries for the year are paid only once, at the end of the year
• The Salary increase becomes effective immediately upon graduating from the...

1. Urban Outfitters most recent Advertising Expense: $71,684,000
American Eagle most recent Advertising Expense: $73,100,000
2. Advertising-Sales Ratios:
FY ending 1/31/12: $71,684/$2,473,801 x 100% = 2.8977%
FY ending 1/31/11: $58,336/$2,274,102 x 100% = 2.5652%
FY ending 1/31/10: $46,829/$1,937,815 x 100% = 2.4165%
FY ending 1/28/12: $73,100/$3,159,818 x 100% = 2.3134%
FY ending 1/29/11: $64,900/$2,967,559 x 100% = 2.1869%
FY ending 1/30/10: $60,900/$2,940,269 x 100% = 2.0712%
We can perform the same calculations for all three years since all the data is provided;, however, it does appear that American Eagle provided less precise numbers for their advertising expense with very round numbers rounded to the nearest tenth of a million.
3. The industry average for the Advertising-to-Sales ratio is 5.55%. Both American Eagle and Urban Outfitters consistently fall under this average meaning that their advertising is more effective than that of their competitors. They are spending less of their budget on sales, which means that in comparison to their...

...CASE – 1: Where Do We Go from Here?
As one of the many seminars held to discuss the corporate response of family-owned business to liberalisation and globalisation, the keynote Mr Gurcharan Das concluded his speech by saying, “In the end, I would say that the success of Indian economy would depend on how the Indian industry and business respond to the reform process.”
As the proceedings of the seminar progressed it became clear that there was a difference of opinion in the perception of participants. Those who were supporting the case for letting the family-owned businesses face competition opined that such businesses in India have exhibited financial acumen; its members have generally adopted an austere life style; they have demonstrated an ability to take calculated risks, and an ability to accumulate and manage capital. They have devised unique managerial style and led the creation of the equity cult among Indians. Several of them are low-cost producers.
The participants critical of the role of family business had this is to say: “There has been a tendency to mix up family’s intent with that of businesses managed by them. There is a lack of focus and business strategy. Family businesses have generally adopted a short-term approach to business causing less purposeful investments in specially critical areas such as employee development and product development. Customers and development of marketing skills have been neglected.”...
