A good is a product that can be used to satisfy some desire or need. More narrowly but commonly, a good is a tangible physical product that can be contrasted with a service which is intangible. As such, it is capable of being delivered to a purchaser and involves the transfer of ownership from seller to customer.


Inferior Good:
Goods for which demand decreases as consumer income rises. Example: Inter-city bus service and inexpensive foods such as hamburger, and frozen dinners, cheaper cars, second hand/used television, clothing from a charity store. Examples-

1) A Kroger brand of imitation juice beverage in gallon milk jugs.

2) "Value-Time" Ice Cream: Ice cream sold in 2.5 gallon plastic pails at grocery stores, with an emphasis on value and quantity as opposed to quality or advertising.

3) Cosmic brownies: Low cost cakes resembling small brownies manufactured by the Little Debbies company. Tesco value bread. When your income rises you buy less Tesco value bread and more high quality, organic bread.

4) Tahitian Treat: A low-cost carbonated fruit punch beverage.

5) Thirst Rockers

Normal Good:
Goods for which demand increases as consumer income rises and falls when income decreases but price remains constant. Most goods are normal goods, hence the name “normal.” food,water,clothing, salt, match box, vegetables.

Superior Good:
Goods that will tend to make up a larger proportion of consumption as income rises. As such, they are an extreme form of normal good. Thus, a superior good’s income elasticity” will be both positive and greater than 1. A superior good might be a luxury good that is not purchased at all below a certain level of income, such as a luxury car, paintings. examples- 1) Smoked salmon

2) Caviar, sometimes called black caviar, is a luxury delicacy,…...

The mobile market has a wide variety of applications that no matter what type of interests you may have, there is something for you. Outlined further in this report will outline the demand for these apps, trend analysis, current market status, success stories and lastly the end users. It was in June of 2008 when Apple Inc released its 3G Apple Iphone which featured support for third party applications. Then only a short month later the Apple app store was created. This took consumers by storm and in the first weekend over 10 million apps were downloaded. Since its release the app store has continued to expand with more apps and better quality apps that now range from E-books to a very humorous fart app. Shortly after Apple had seen rapid success with its app store, other leading Telephone providers like blackberry, Nokia and Android soon released a similar app store for their users. The evolution of mobile apps seems to be creating applications in which ease day to day living through our smart phones. For example in the Apple app store, there are apps which allow you to receive newspapers like the New York Times, or the Globe and Mail directly to your mobile device. There are also apps which act as a PDF creator, it allows for the consumer to take pictures of multiple documents, upload them......

...practice and use them, like new products, processes and services. Many studies about innovation management have been done and theories about innovation are various, like theories about different types of innovation, the process of innovation, and assessment tools of innovation capability and so on. There are many different types of innovation, but traditional research on innovation has been focused on product or process innovation (Peterson, 1972; Brown, 1995). Tidd and Bessant (2009) presents a model of the innovation process with four phases: generate new ideas, select the best one, implement and capture the benefit. Innovation has become more and more important and is discussed by researchers, policy-makers and companies on a daily basis. The governments mention the topic about innovation increasingly and frequently (Swedish Government, 2008). Different authors defines innovation differently and classifies innovation in various types. The Austrian economist Joseph Schumpeter (1934), a pioneer of innovation management, described innovation as “creative destruction”- a new association of production factors and production conditions. Schumpeter defined innovation from five aspects: The introduction of a new goods – which customers are not familiar yet, or a new quality of a goods. The introduction of a new method of production, which not only means new technology, but also means a new way of handling a commodity commercially. The opening of a new market. New......

...but grounded theory continues to be utilised with the aim of finishing the project by November 2004. 2.2 DATA COLLECTION Data collection commenced in February 2001 and is ongoing. Consistent with grounded theory methodology, data collection should only be discontinued once data saturation has 11 occurred (Streubert & Carpenter 1995). Data saturation has not yet been reached therefore further issues may emerge and will be reported in subsequent literature. 2.2.1 Sampling A theoretical sample of mentors and lecturers associated with three of the Higher Education Institutions in Scotland who offer pre-registration nurse education provided the sample for the study. Theoretical sampling is central to grounded theory methodology. This type of sampling directs all data collection efforts towards gathering information that will best support development of the emerging theory (Glaser & Strauss 1967). Four specific groups have participated in the study thus far: (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) mentors with no direct experience of failing a student mentors who had had experience of actually failing a student mentors who although they had some concerns regarding a student’s clinical performance had given a satisfactory clinical assessment lecturers who had been involved in such situations Volunteers were recruited using a variety of methods. All pre-registration nurse lecturers within the university departments were provided with information regarding the study which asked for......

...Chapter 2 Goods, Products and Services Glenn Parry, Linda Newnes, and Xiaoxi Huang 2.1 Introduction Defining terminology is a useful starting point when reading or writing on the subject of service to prevent any confusion or assumptions that we all understand the terms to mean the same thing. So, what do we mean by goods, products and services? This is a book about service, but what is a ‘service’ and how is it different to ‘goods’ or ‘products’? Whilst most people intuitively know the difference between a product and service, actually defining this difference with clarity and accuracy of text is not straight forward. The terms ‘goods’ and ‘products’ appear to be used interchangeably in much of the literature, but even here we can find debate about meaning (Araujo and Spring 2006; Callon 1991, 2002). However, for the sake of brevity we will here accept that they both refer to the same thing and focus on attempts to differentiate goods and services. This quest is far from straightforward. Since the early eighteenth century academics and scholars from different domains have attempted to define these terms explicitly (Say 1803; Levitt 1981; Hill 1999; Gadrey 2000). In this chapter we will attempt to illustrate their findings in order to provide some background to the debate. 2.2 Goods In the eighteenth century Adam Smith (1776) stated that goods have exchangeable value and so a characteristic of a good is that its ownership rights can be established and......

...With all the various types of food that we consumers demand for, the restaurant industries have different kind of restaurants, for example, Thai cuisine restaurant, Chinese food restaurant, Sushi restaurants, fast food restaurant, in order to satisfy customers’ desire. The restaurant industry is the largest employer in the private sector, and it continues to get larger every year (Vault.com, 2014). According to the National Restaurant Association’s analysis, the restaurant employment stands 441,000 jobs above its high point before the recession, while the overall economy in 2012 is still down 3.2 million jobs from the prerecession peak (Qsrmagazine.com, 2013). It might seem like an easy business to set up as food is under the physiological needs according to the Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, which means there will be no problem of running the business as an individual moves up the needs hierarchy from one level to the next (McLeod, 2007). Human needs food to survive, thus, the restaurant industry may easily gain a desirable profit. However, there are a few external environmental factors that affect the organization. For example, the most well-known globalized fast food restaurant that is operating now, McDonald’s, has to face some of the external environment constraints despite of how successful it is. All these external environment constraints are the factors and forces outside the organization that may affect the restaurant’s performance in either a good or bad way.......

...application. Never group trap. Group trapping invariably leads to back-up of condensate in the system. • Ensure that piping allows the condensate to be removed effectively. Coils should be fitted with a vacuum breaker to allow condensate to drain freely. Waterlogged equipment not only fails to operate as expected, but also is prone to corrosion and water hammer. • When possible, avoid any increase in elevation on return condensate lines. Condensate that is evacuated to a higher elevation does not flow by gravity. It requires a pressure slightly greater than the head pressure resulting from the elevation rise. When elevation of condensate after a trap is necessary, a pumping trap may be necessary to ensure good drainage. Figure 1. Solubility of magnetite in water (2). However, common good engineering practices are listed below, as defined in DOE’s Steam System Opportunity Assessment for the Pulp and Paper, Chemical Manufacturing, and Petroleum Refining Industries (1). • Supply dry, high-quality steam. Steam quality must generally match process requirements and be of sufficient quality (dryness) not to erode system components. In those instances when high-moisture steam is used, a steam separator should be considered. Supply lines should also be insulated and trapped to prevent accumulation of condensate. • Isolate steam from unused lines with properly located isolation valves. Any dead leg open to steam should be trapped to prevent condensate accumulation. • Make sure......

Good Will

...on Kant’s views on good will and moral worth, along with some real life examples, Socrates’s discussion on differences between mere true belief and real knowledge of virtue and several other philosophers’ unique interpretations and related discussions on this topic. Kant makes a clear argument about good will in the very beginning of his book Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals. He explicitly states that: “There is no possibility of thinking anything at all in the world, or even out of it, which can be regarded as good without qualification, except a good will. (Kant 7)” Kant believes that a good will is always morally good. Therefore, what a good will does is always morally good as well. Also, he obviously takes good will as the only true standard to judge the moral worth of a certain action. He explains that everything that seems to be good by itself actually could only be good if they are driven by a good will; without a good will, these other things might be used to produce negative outcomes. Except for a good will, nothing else would be good simply on its own. For example, loyal soldiers with bravery driven by a good will protect the city and the citizens well, and some of them may even sacrifice their own lives for such honorable aims. But without a good will, bravery can be used by greedy robbers and may lead to terrible outcomes. Also, scientists may use intelligence with a good will to improve our lives in various aspects; without such good will,......

...team identified the bank scams as a major crime. Bangladesh Bank found massive corruption at Sonali Bank in 2010. At that time the BB did not take major steps against Sonali Bank. The BB should demand fair probe into the Sonali Bank scam and exemplary punishment to those involved in the scandal in the Sonali Bank. The BB knew that something had happened like fraudulence in Sonali Bank, a state-owned bank. It reveals the weakness in bank management and audit. The scam also indicates the involvement of influential quarters that, means they resorted to corruption by using state power. The intellectuals also noted that the conflicting stance by BB and the Finance Minister would also foster obstacles to ensuring transparency, accountability and good governance in the country's banking and finance sector. As a result it's a matter of grave concern that the conflicting stances by Bangladesh Bank and the Finance Minister raised questions about the government's position to have a proper investigation, while on the other hand, it'll create options for obstacles to establishing transparency and accountability in the banking and finance sector. Apparel firm's Managing Director Tanvir Mahmud, General Manager Tushar Ahmed and Sonali Bank's Ruposhi Bangla Hotel branch's former Manager KM Azizur Rahman were among those arrested over the fraudulent loan. Bank's MD & CEO Datta, on the other day claimed having no ties with the loan scandal while speaking to the journalist. The matter of......

...interest – experimental psychology, and my family’s own history with addictive personalities. The courses in my major that I have felt were the most challenging and interesting have focused on drug and alcohol abuse, statistics, and experimental methods, so it is natural to gravitate towards this type of research topic. My father’s younger brother had everything going for him – new wife, family. He suffered from alcohol abuse and at the age of 22, committed suicide. As an oldest child, I developed a propensity to self-medication in my early twenties and thankfully out grew it, but others are not so lucky. The question, “What role does birth order play in likelihood of occurrence or recurrence of substance abuse?” is interesting to me and I really did not know what to expect! With no preconceived theories, I remained open to all possibilities that research would show. For choosing research sources and materials, peer reviewed journals are considered unbiased, for the most part, and are respected resources for writing a research paper. There are of course top-tier journals and also vanity journals, but peer reviewed articles that are vetted by objective experts are normally considered very good sources for research projects. The authors are typically scientists and researchers in the field of study, and the content is closely reviewed and evaluated by other experts who will question research methods and findings. Scholarly journals like Journal of Alcohol and Drug Dependency......

...of those in their expanding circle of friends and, of course, in themselves. In less balanced individuals, such mitigation of the unseemly eventually undermines the ENFJ's integrity and frequently their good name. In healthier individuals, deft use of this awareness of the inner needs and desires of others enables this astute type to win friends, influence people, and avoid compromising entanglements. The dynamic nature of their intuition moves ENFJs from one project to another with the assurance that the next one will be perfect, or much more nearly so than the last. ENFJs are continually looking for newer and better solutions to benefit their extensive family, staff, or organization. Extraverted Sensing Sensing is extraverted. ENFJs can manage details, particularly those necessary to implement the prevailing vision. These data have, however, a magical flexible quality. Something to be bought can be had for a song; the same something is invaluable when it's time to sell. (We are not certain, but we suspect that such is the influence of the primary function.) This wavering of sensory perception is made possible by the weaker and less mature status with which the tertiary is endowed. Introverted Thinking Introverted Thinking is least apparent and most enigmatic in this type. In fact, it often appears only when summoned by Feeling. At times only in jest, but in earnest if need be, Thinking entertains as logical only those conclusions which support Feeling's values. Other......
