...ECON 191, Fall 2012 Guidelines for Writing an Economics Research Paper Writing a good economics paper is both an exciting and a nontrivial task. It requires a sustained effort in identifying an important question and in developing a credible model to think about that question or a testable hypothesis to answer it. In many cases it may require collecting data that gives the opportunity to test the hypothesis that you develop. You are encouraged to structure your paper in four parts: introduction, literature review, body, and conclusion. A brief abstract of no more than 100 words should precede your paper. Introduction Identifying a significant and well formulated question is the single most important part of the research process and the most difficult as well. A good research question has to be concise (remember, you are writing a 15-page paper, not a book), feasible and important. Choosing a research question requires balancing importance and feasibility. Feasibility means tractability for theoretical research and data availability for empirical research. Whenever you come up with an idea for a research question, always try to think about a critic sitting in front of you asking “Why should I care about this?” Consider this question to be a first filter for your research question. Identify a well-defined research question. The introduction is where you (1) present the research question, (2) motivate why it is important and briefly outline (3) how you go about answering it...

Econ Research Paper

...Research Paper Fred A. Graff Baker College Purpose Statement The topic I chose for this research paper is the National Railroad Passenger Corporation, Amtrak. This was due to the fact that I believe this is the direction America needs to take to reduce demand on oil supplies and cut down on emissions. Mass transit railway systems are cheaper and more efficient than airplanes and automobiles. The problem that exists right now with going to mass railway transit is the fact that many of the railroad tracks have been abandoned, removed or turned into trails for hiking or biking. To reach the rural population is going to be the biggest obstacle facing this much needed service in the United States. This is the area I am going to focus on in this paper. Addressing the problem of reaching rural America with mass transit will be tough but not impossible. My solution would be two-fold, and would entail laying new tracks to old places of service and making hubs that people can travel to with ample (and cheap) parking for their vehicles. The second part would be to invest in busses and start small-town bus routes to pick up passengers in areas where running train tracks would be too inefficient. These busses would run only to and from the train hubs connecting them to small towns and rural bus stops. This plan of reinvesting in the railway system would solve several issues: our reliance on foreign oil, our need to reduce emissions and creating new, long term jobs. Trains can...

...For studying demand reDurbin–Watson statistic From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search This article includes a list of references, but its sources remain unclear because it has insufficient inline citations. Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations. (December 2012) In statistics, the Durbin–Watson statistic is a test statistic used to detect the presence of autocorrelation (a relationship between values separated from each other by a given time lag) in the residuals (prediction errors) from a regression analysis. It is named after James Durbin and Geoffrey Watson. The small sample distribution of this ratio was derived by John von Neumann (von Neumann, 1941). Durbin and Watson (1950, 1951) applied this statistic to the residuals from least squares regressions, and developed bounds tests for the null hypothesis that the errors are serially uncorrelated against the alternative that they follow a first order autoregressive process. Later, John Denis Sargan and Alok Bhargava developed several von Neumann–Durbin–Watson type test statistics for the null hypothesis that the errors on a regression model follow a process with a unit root against the alternative hypothesis that the errors follow a stationary first order autoregression (Sargan and Bhargava, 1983). Note that the distribution of this test statistic does not depend on the estimated regression coefficients and the variance of the......

...Name: Azwirah Yasin Course: Econs 001 Title: The strength of a currency reflects its credibility. Or is it the other way round Date: 11/21/2014 In this world of globalization, every country have the strong desire to move the nation forward and nurture their determination to sustain, develop and increase its power among other countries. It is indeed a known fact that we somehow have the richest country to the poorest country, each striving to attain credibility and integrity with countless ways done by their government, Congress, President and society. In short, money plays a massive role in the global economy. Back when I was a teenager, I used to follow my uncle to his work as he owns a money changer and observe blindly how the currency in my country, Malaysia changes from day to day. I would be asking myself about the reason and the aftermath for the currency change. I was told that having a strong currency is what a country would strive in the end. A strong currency means a strong nation, thus a richer country. I began to question the rightness of the fact. Does the strength of the currency really reflect the credibility of its nation? In general, according to an article on New York Times, it is said that ‘The supply of dollars to the foreign exchange market comes from Americans who want to buy goods, services or assets from abroad. The demand for dollars comes from foreigners who want to buy from the United States.’ As said, when there is a high demand, the......

...Home Entertainment: Cable TV vs. Internet Streaming Service Miguel A. Resendiz Campbell University Home Entertainment: Cable TV vs. Internet Streaming In my household we are a family of four which includes my wife, my teenage brother, my daughter and me. When it comes to entertainment, we are very dependent on television. We have some shows that we enjoy as a family and because of the age difference and different interest we also have shows that we enjoy watching independently. The necessity of having a home entertainment that is low priced and adaptable to the needs of the family leads to analyze the decision whether to continue with cable television or switch to internet streaming. Home entertainment in America is constantly evolving side by side with technology. The Cable television industry has been dominating home entertainment market for many years but a new industry is now in the challenge, the new competitor is Internet Streaming Service and is also rising with technology. In his book, On-Demand Culture: Digital Delivery and the Future of Movies, Dr. Tyron explains, “Digital delivery not only affects the economic models of the movie industry but also promotes an on-demand culture, in which the practices of movie-going and the perceptions of media culture are transformed. Movie viewers are now re-imagined as individualized and mobile, able to watch practically anywhere or anytime they wish, while having access to aspects of film culture—such as film......

Econ 332 Abenomics Term Paper

...economic effects of governmental policies require years to fully see the effects, “Abenomics” was designed as a jumpstart program with future decisions dependent on the immediate aftereffects of implementation. With the initial completion of the first two arrows of the “Abenomics” economic program and the implementation of the third arrow of structural reforms of the Japanese economy, labor, and tax structures; Japan seems to already be rebounding from the growth due it had experienced in the first half of the 2013 fiscal year. The reason for this rebound can be attributed to the increase in the consumer consumption tax to 8% from 5%. Can “Abenomics” revive the Japanese economy and restore Japan to the growth it had once experienced? This paper will analyze the initial reasoning’s in the application of the “Abenomics” program and delve deeper into both the successes and failures of the program as it attempts to restart the Japanese economy. First let us examine the state of the Japanese economy prior to Shinzo Abe’s emergence as prime minister during the era of Abenomics. Following the global recession brought about by the equity markets in the United States in 2008, Japan had been on a slow recovery of growth hitting up to a GDP growth percentage of 4.7% in the 2010 fiscal year. However, with the advent of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, Japan was once again thrown in the negative digits of GDP growth and on a slower growth recovery prior to the Tohoku earthquake.......

...are only so many customers available in a local area. A businesses market was relatively small. If a business wanted to advertise their product, then they would have to resort to using radio advertisements, news paper articles, and handing out flyers by hand to customers. This way of marketing is time consuming. It requires hard work and it increases your businesses operating costs. This was the old way your parents and grandparents remember doing business. Now imagine the world changes. You hear of a new invention called the internet. All of a sudden you could advertise your businesses products to anyone in the world with an internet connection. Now the amount of potential customers a business could attract went from a mere few thousand to millions! Just how many possible customers are their online? According to Intelligent Positioning (2010), "Internet usage has not even scratched the surface. Three quarters of the world's population of 7 billion people do not have internet access." That is about five billion people who do not have access to the internet! That leaves only two billion people who do have internet access. This means the worlds internet market is still in its infancy and these data figures are from 2010. The graph I provided at the end of this paper, illustrates the amount of internet users by population in major countries from 1990 to 2008. After observing this data you will see we still have many years to come, until we fully see the impact of our worlds...

Econ Final: Industry Paper - Trade Show Industry

...The reason I have chosen the trade show industry for my paper is because this is the industry I will be working in after I graduate. This industry is very different from other industry because it has its hands in so many different industries. This is because trade shows are organized for industries to get together and interact. The industry I am focusing on are the companies that put on the trade shows. Along with research I am also knowledgeable about this industry because I interned last summer for a company call Reed Exhibitions which is one of the largest trade show companies world wide. Reed Exhibition is one of the large companies you will find in this market. They have a portfolio of about 500 events and trade shows in 39 different countries. This industry is mostly dominated by companies such as this one. The structure of the trade show Industry can be broken down into three sections, business to business, business to consumer, and a combination of both. Trade shows from the business to business part of the industry function by making deals at the tradeshow. Trade shows are created around a certain industry, examples of this are G2E which is a casino game trade show or Accessories The Show which is a fashion accessories trade show. These shows are set up with exhibits put together by companies that sell products to other companies. These shows are then attending by companies that work with the consumers and they can look and interact with exhibits and......

...eroding effect to several Canadian industries. Today, Canada is the fifth largest exporter of agricultural products worldwide, and through this deal, Canadian exports will only rise. The TPP will reduce or eliminate several tariffs on agricultural imports for countries involved in the deal. This will provide countries with an incentive to buy more, now that Canadian products will be relatively cheaper. Gains from the elimination of tariffs, and enhanced market access for Canadian agriculture are especially significant in markets such as Japan. Japans tariff removal on 32% of its agricultural imports, allows Canadian agricultural products to be more feasible for the Japanese market. Considering the article in the Asian Economic Papers Journal, it’s evident that due to the combined operation of the income and substitution effects, the demand for Canadian agricultural products will rise across TPP nations (Cheong, 2013, pp. 144-167). This will result in a boost for the agricultural industry in Canada, creating more jobs for the betterment of the Canadian economy. It’s interesting to note, however, why such an increase in demand would result from the elimination or reduction of import tariffs. The USDA’s article on the TPP’s agricultural aspect shines light on these very reasons. The motivation is, demand will begin to return to its natural equilibrium point. When an import tariff is imposed on agricultural products, the quantity exchanged decreases because...

Factors that affect demand, supply and prices… Define the market for your product… Opportunities Apple Incorporated Found The designers of the Apple products had a distinct vision in mind to product a product that would run along the cutting edge of technology. While they achieved this goal by producing a variety of product that are capable of linking together for the consumers use, they lead the market with their products. The cost of building an iPhone for example is much greater than building a competitive phone, say one on the Android system. The parts utilized to make the iPhone are much more costly allowing a much better product. Apple products allow for more clarity, and functionality as well allowing the customer an overall better product.......

Automotive industry is one of the largest industries in the United States. Historically, it has helped 3 to 3.5 percent of gross domestic product (GDP). It directly employs more than 1.7 million people who are involved in the design, manufacture and distribution of parts, components to install, sell and service the components. The industry of auto uses $16 to $18 billion annually for the research and development of the products. By excluding the automotive sector, it is difficult to determine the effects of global recession with in United States (Gereffi, 2005).
