why those two

  • anonymous
theyre not good.. so theyre negative externalities lol sorry its the only way i can really explain it right now
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
hmm 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay so u think its B?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
a 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
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
I 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay so D?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yeah 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)
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol u over think things way too much ahah
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
You 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

Which of these illustrates the use of currency rather than barter? Felicia mows lawns in order to get a smartphone from her parents. Mallory wins a savings bond in the school science fair. Martin works for his uncle for four hours in exchange for lunch. Sasha gives a cashier two dollars to receive a bag of chips.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
which one do you think it is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
D?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
why D
anonymous
  • anonymous
because shes using money to get the chips
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
correct, 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
  • jim_thompson5910
I guess B is a barter as well

Unemployment is rising, and the federal government wants to encourage job growth. Which of the following actions would be an appropriate fiscal policy? Expand open-market operations Increase spending on infrastructure projects Lower discount rates Raise taxes on small businesses
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
hint: fiscal policy deals with taxing and spending
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
monetary policy deals with the money supply (and the interest rate associated with it)
anonymous
  • anonymous
C? @jim_thompson5910
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
the discount rate is associated with monetary policy
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
there 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
so which one?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you tell me
anonymous
  • anonymous
2?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yep the "lower taxes" option isn't listed
anonymous

okay gotcha
jim_thompson5910

so its Increase spending on infrastructure projects

Tina has $1,500 that she will use to buy a car in four months. In the meantime, she would like to invest it to earn more money. Which of these would yield the greatest return in her time frame? Money market account Roth IRA Savings account Savings bonds
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
I'm not sure about this one, but I know an IRA is for retirement. So that means the money needs to sit in the account for a very long time (say 30 years and not 4 months).

Does Molly have control over the rent price/cost?
anonymous
  • anonymous
idk lol
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
no she does not and she cannot decide something like "hmm I think I'll pay half of the rent this month, and 25% of the rent next month". She has to pay the full rent every month or risk getting kicked out
anonymous
  • anonymous
hahahha oh okay i get it
anonymous
  • anonymous
would it be B?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
It sounds like you're randomly guessing. Again, the rent percentage can't be reduced based on her desire alone.
anonymous
  • anonymous
im not i was doing good on all the others.. im actually trying my best @jim_thompson5910
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
the rent percentage must stay at 30% assuming her budget stays the same
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
since 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh okay so would the answer be C?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
either 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay so just go with C

are credit card interest rates very low? or very high?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i have no idea
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh no nvm theyre very high
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yes, like 22% or 29% normal interest rates are around maybe 3% to 10% so credit card interest rates are very high because it's very risky

so A's the answer?

Equivalent spending and taxing does not allow for debt reduction. Higher spending than taxing results in a deficit, which contributes to more debt.

When a country spends more than what it makes in taxes, then it runs a deficit. Each deficit (from year to year) increases the national debt.
