Executive summary

In this empirical report, we have analyze the characteristics of several important economics indicators and how they can be use by economist to look out for period of inflation, sharp changes in GDP growth due to GST and oil shock and how to make use of this indicators to do a projection on the economy performance.

We also come to understand how different types of economic indicators are used and how they correspond to the movement economy activities. Understanding the characteristic of these economic indicators, allows us to identify the cyclical nature of each individual indicator with economic growth and, thus, help us in choosing a set of economic indicators for forecasting the economic performance.

To conclude, we state that by doing an economic indicator analysis through leading, coincident and lagging indexes, we can understand how well the economy performance as a whole. It also tells us the relationship between economy performance and the policy-making of a country.


The measurement and analysis of business cycles has been one of the important research topics in economics and underlying theories of these economics arguments have changed as times goes by. In this empirical report, attention will be focus into the central questions on the causes of fluctuation in the economic activity by constructing a business cycle analysis and composite coincident index, a combination of several time series that one would expect to contain information about the current stats of the economy.

However, the emphasis in a number of recent theoretical and empirical studies of business cycles has been in terms of growth cycles only. In general, there we pay little attention to the turning points since we are only interested in the relative volatility and co-movement among variables as well as the standard deviation of these economics…...

...I. The Consumer Price Index ( CPI ) : 1. Overview of the CPI : A. Introduction: A consumer price index (CPI) measures changes in the price level of consumer goods and services purchased by households. The CPI, in the United States is defined by the Bureau of Labor Statistics as "a measure of the average change over time in the prices paid by urban consumers for a market basket of consumer goods and services.". In Viet Nam, the General Statistics Office reports the CPI each month. The CPI is a statistical estimate constructed using the prices of a sample of representative items whose prices are collected periodically. Sub-indexes and sub-sub-indexes are computed for different categories and sub-categories of goods and services, being combined to produce the overall index with weights reflecting their shares in the total of the consumer expenditures covered by the index. It is one of several price indices calculated by most national statistical agencies. The annual percentage change in a CPI is used as a measure of inflation. A CPI can be used to index (i.e., adjust for the effect of inflation) the real value of wages, salaries, pensions, for regulating prices and for deflating monetary magnitudes to show changes in real values. In most countries, the CPI is, along with the population census and the USA National Income and Product Accounts, one of the most closely watched national economic statistics. B. Problems in measuring the cost of living: When the Bureau of Labor......

...Weekly Reflection Ruben I. Torres, Jr., Cheyenne Blue, Marsha Scott, Catherine Caughrean ECO 365 2-20-13 Dr. Lin Weekly Reflection In week one on ECO 365 our team discussed the many different areas which create economics in the modern world. The objectives were clearly outlined in the syllabus which Dr. Lin provided to Team A. Differentiate between Macroeconomics and Microeconomics The first objective we discussed was the difference between Macro and Micro economics. Since both studies deal with the economic decision making process, the one aspect which separates them would be that Microeconomics is the study of economics from the view point of a firm or individuals. Macroeconomics is the study of economics from the view point of a society or nation. This aspect would study the budget or a government or GDP of a nation. Supply and Demand The second area which we discussed was the effects of supply and demand. It was nice to get a better idea on how the costs of goods are affected by the amount of goods available for distribution at any given period. By studying the buying trends of individuals, companies are able to control the price and the supply of goods for consumers. If a company wishes to charge an outrages price for a product and have consumers pay the amount, they simply produce a low quantity of the product. A good example of this would be the way Sony released the new Playstation 3 (PS3). When the PS3 system first......

Micro-level focuses on individuals and their interactions. For example the relationship between adult children and their parents, or the effect of negative attitudes on older people. Some criticize on micro-level theories becuase they focus on what older people do rather than on social conditionsand policies that cuase them to act the way they do. Macro-level focuses more upon social structure, social processes and problems, and their interrelationships. For example the effects of industrialization on older people's status, or how gender and income affect older people's well being. This approach tends to minimize people's ability to act and overcome the limits of social structures. Both micro and macro-leve theories can take one of three perspectives which include: interpretive perspective, normative, and conflict. Normative perspective says rules and status exist in society to provide socail control or social order. Social order is necessary for survival. This perspective focuses upon macro-level. For example structural-functionalism, role theory, modernization theory, and......

...According to Minzberg theory, leader is a person who direct and motivate subordinates, select and also to train employees. According to the Katz theory, conceptual and human skills are more important than technical skills (…). This theory is consistent with Mr.T’s managerial skills, as he has rated 5 for conceptual and human skills but he has only rated 3 for his technical skills. The last function of fayol function is controlling is to ensure the performance of the workers does not deviate from standards and it consist of three steps which are establishing performance standards, compare the actual standard with the actual standards and finally taking actions to correct the mistakes (…). Mr. T’s controlling involves reviewing the weekly report about the operationally activities of each account, their compliances deliverables and achievable goals. Mr.T has rated 3 for his controlling in the questionnaire and it is consistent with the theory of distribution of time because according to theory, top level managers spend least time on controlling compare to other functions. Mr.T can be considered as a negotiator because he mainly communicates with customers and workers, he also plays a major when it comes to negotiation with customers and local authorities like custom, DOE and police. According to Mintzberg theory, negotiator is someone who directs negotiations within organization and representing the organization for major negotiations (…). He also plays as disturbance......

...Young and Middle Adulthood Case Studies LaTawsha Estell BSHS 325 11-28-14 Professor Laura Cobb Young and Middle Adulthood Case Studies The influence the experiences have made on Jackson’s development is crucial. Jackson’s mom Tina being a single mother could have effected Jackson from the start. The case study states that the biological father was not involved in his life either. So Jackson may have had some personal issues dealing with that. A lot of children are effected by an absent parent but mainly boys with absent fathers. That has an effect on boys because there is no one to teach them how to be a man. Mothers always believe that they can be a single mother and teach their sons how to be a man when the father isn’t around. It is believed that a mother shows them the only way they know which tends to make the son feminine. That could have effected Jackson’s sexual preference when he got older. Some boys whose fathers are absent gain attitudes of their mother and begin to think like a woman from listening to their mother their whole life. That alone can steer a boy’s sexual preference of wanting the love from another man. There are many theories that leads up to same sex preference. An absent father is definitely one reason. Jackson could have blamed himself for his father’s actions. That could turn anybody to depression, which the case study stated that Jackson suffered with. Depression can then turn into using suppressants to channel his depression which caused...

...MACRO ENVIRONMENT The Coca Cola Company and other organizations have their own weaknesses and strengths that can both affect the future performance of their respective business. Analyzing the future constraints is an advantage for the companies since they can identify the possible factors that tend to leave an impact on their business. PESTLE analysis is a popular method that focuses in the external factors of the business and the environment where it operates. PESTLE stands for Political, Economic, Sociological, Technological, Legal, and Environmental. All of them examine the changes in the marketplace. Political Analysis Political analysis examines the current and potential influences from political pressures. The non-alcoholic beverages falls in the category under the FDA and the government plays a role within the operation of manufacturing these products. In terms of regulations, the government has the power to set potential fines for the companies that did not meet their standard law requirement.  The changes in laws and regulations, such as accounting standards, taxation requirements and environmental laws and foreign jurisdictions might affect the book of the company as well as their entry in foreign country. Other than that, the changes in the nature of business as non-alcoholic beverages can gain competitive product and pricing pressures and the ability to improve or maintain the share in sales in global market as a result of action by competitors.

Macro had been bombarded by political mayhem like unproductive congress, as well as a burden of national debt that keeps hanging over our head and reminds of itself on almost every national headline. While the political elite is trying to slash and reduce the debt jeopardizing ideologies of its own parties, the private sector’s elite – CEOs of large corporations are filling their pockets with bonuses and salaries, as if we were still in 2003. According to the report conducted by Institute of Policy Study: “Twenty-five of the 100 highest paid U.S. CEOs earned more last year than their companies paid in federal income tax”. The report has been ordered by Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. The conducted study upon the topic stated that the average pay of a CEO that surpassed taxes was 16.7 million dollars yearly. An interesting point has been brought up in this article, comparing a higher-than-taxes pay to cases of corporate fraud, such as Enron and WorldCom. According to Collins, the congressman who ordered the report to be conducted, outsized CEO pay was often a red flag for bigger problems to come. I would like to get to the very bottom of this issue right away. This story is much deeper than this corporate fiscal year, the house elections or even the national debt. This is an issue directly connected to the de-regulation of not only our economic system, but Capitalism itself. United States and the Western World are not ready for a structure like Capitalism,......
