Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmm I guess b is up in the air for me. It could be positive if the people spend money at the stores or it could be negative if they simply browse and cause more congestion

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2a classic example of negative externality is something like pollution. That's usually bad no matter how you look at it. People not involved in the production or consumption of the product have to deal with the negative consequences of pollution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I don't know what to make of B tbh. It depends on what the people do. If they spend money there, then it's not a negative externality

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yeah that seems like a negative consequence that burdens a third party then again, it seems odd how they pull out this example since this is a natural result of competition, so it doesn't seem negative to me. Competition is natural, healthy and a good thing (as opposed to pollution, which is unnatural, unhealthy, etc)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You might be onto something with B. But I'm not sure. If the people increase the pollution with liter or something, then that's definitely a negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2correct, currency is something nearly everyone accepts in exchange for a product or service A and C are examples of bartering (exchanging products and/or services) B isn't a currency because you can't buy groceries with a savings bond on its own. You have to pull currency out of the bond (in dollars for example) to buy groceries.

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there are 2 basic fiscal ways to encourage economic growth 1) lower taxes. This means people have more money to spend since this amount isn't taken as taxes 2) increase spending on projects that create jobs. This puts money in people's pockets for them to spend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the rent percentage must stay at 30% assuming her budget stays the same

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2since business has been lousy for her, the revenue would be down which means that the rent percentage would increase example: in 2013, say the revenue is $100 and the rent is $30. That's 30/100 = 0.3 = 30% of the revenue in 2014, now say the revenue drops to $80. The rent would stay at $30 or probably increase due to inflation. Let's assume it stays at $30. So, 30/80 = 0.375 = 37.5% so the rent percentage increased

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2either that or D both of these options seem unreasonable though since there's always going to be some misc cost (like insurance) or something that needs to be repaired utilities are another fixed cost, but they can be controlled because you can use less water or electricity
