The role of US and China in global economy pacesetting

OVERVIEW
The final project provides you with an opportunity to use work from previous papers and discussion forums in formulating your paper, but it will also require additional research. You are required to adhere to APA (American Psychological Association) style guidelines and to cite your sources. Do not copy tables or material and present it as your own. A feature of good academic writing is building on the work of others in presenting a new approach to a business issue.

Use databases such as EBSCOhost and ProQuest (available through the myEdison portal in the My Resources block). Also, online journals from the New Jersey State Library to conduct your research. (In order to access resources from the New Jersey State Library, you must first sign up for a free library card.)

The role of the United States and China are pacesetting in the global economy. Greater cooperation will be essential to support the robustness of both economies. As a way of approaching this challenge, the Ministry of Economy of China has invited you to present a seminar to its key staff to better understand the conceptual framework of microeconomics in the U.S. economy. The minister feels that if his staff is better able to understand the U.S. perspective on microeconomics. The two countries might be able to work in a more cooperative way in the global economy.

Investments and investment risk

Investments and investment risk

This week, let’s talk about investments and investment risk. In class with you today are individuals with various experience in investing – some may be seasoned professionals, while others may have very little experience. Either case is perfect okay because we all approach investing, risk, and return differently.

Week 4 Discussion: Risk, Return and Diversification
This week, let’s talk about investments and investment risk. In class with you today are individuals with various experience in investing. Some may be season ed professionals, while others may have very little experience. Either case is perfect okay because we all approach investing, risk, and return differently.
When you invest your money, you have to consider a basic risk-return tradeoff. The risk-return tradeoff (Links to an external site.) is the balance between the desire for the lowest possible risk and the highest possible returns. In general, low levels of uncertainty (low risk) are associate with low potential returns and high levels of uncertainty (high risk) are associated with high potential returns (link (Links to an external site.)).

Describe three factors that influence your evaluation of the risk of an investment
What factors influence risk tolerance?
How does diversification positively and negatively affect risk?
What type of investor would invest in a high beta stock and a low beta stock?

More details;

The risk-return relationship. Generally, the higher the potential return of an investment, the higher the risk. There is no guarantee that you will actually get a higher return by accepting more risk. Diversification enables you to reduce the risk of your portfolio without sacrificing potential returns.

Diversification reduces risk by investing in investments that span different financial instruments, industries, and other categories.

Risk can be both undiversifiable or systemic, and diversifiable or unsystemic.

Investors may find balancing a diversified portfolio complicated and expensive, and it may come with lower rewards because the risk is mitigated.

Labach v JH enterprise case of 2015

Justice Labach v JH enterprise case

This is an assignment that discusses the ruling in justice Labach v JH enterprise case. The paper also has various examples of cases for citation.

The ruling in Justice Labach v JH enterprise case

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Firstly, there are a total of 10 marks to be allocated and this assignment is worth 10% of your final mark in this class.

2. Secondly, I have uploaded three (3) Saskatchewan Court decisions to URCourses as a resource to assist you in responding to the questions below.  The expectation is that you will also use the cases as support for the legal principal that you cite in your answer.  Consequently, please be sure to cite the case and the paragraph of the case upon which you rely as your authority.  The correct citation for each case is follows:

a. Thompson v. Harris, 1970 CanLII 618 (Sk. Q.B.) b. Ackerman v. The Wascana Centre Authority, 1997 CanLII 10879 (Sk. Q.B.); and  also c. Nelson v. JH Enterprises, 2015 SKPC 64 (CanLII).
Several examples of how to properly cite the case are as follows:
a) When crediting (but not quoting) a case:
Either:
Justice Labach in the case of Nelson v. JH Enterprises, 2015 SKPC 64 (CanLII) determined at paragraph 22 that an occupier does not need to be the owner of the premises and also that supervision and control over the premises may be sufficient to lead to a determination that a party is an occupier.
Or:

The ruling in justice Labach v JH enterprise case

An occupier does not need to be the owner of the premises rather an occupier may also be the party that has supervision and control over the premises (Nelson v. JH Enterprises, 2015 SKPC 64 (CanLII) at paragraph 22).   b) When quoting less than two (2) lines of text:

However, in the case of Nelson v. JH Enterprises, 2015 SKPC 64 (CanLII) Justice Labach stated at paragraph 9 “it appeared that a corner of one of the blue lumber carts had got caught on his rear passenger tire.”
c) When quoting more than two (2) lines of text:
In the case of Nelson v. JH Enterprises, 2015 SKPC 64 (CanLII) Justice Labach stated the following at paragraph 9:

Suddenly he heard a loud noise. He stopped his truck and got out to see what had happened. When he went around to the passenger side of the truck, he saw a lumber cart wedged around the rear wheel. It also appeared that a corner of one of the blue lumber carts had got caught on his rear passenger tire and the cart had tipped over into his truck.

Reasons for the low and even negative bond yields

Reasons for the low and even negative bond yields

This paper focuses on EC3214 Financial Economics II. The Excel file ‘Yield on ten-year Tbills’ in Moodle contains US daily yields on 10-year Treasuries (in percent) for you to verify or to track the data over the period October 2014 to July 2010.

EC3214 Financial Economics II-The Excel file ‘Yield on ten-year

Instructions
The Excel file ‘Yield on ten-year Tbills’ in Moodle contains US daily yields on 10-year Treasuries (in percent) for you to verify or to track the data over the period October 2014 to July 2010. At the bottom of the brief summary, there are some questions that you will need to address in writing the essay.

Make sure that the essay is your own individual work and that you do not use external help. Do not copy from anywhere else. You should include a reference section at the end of the essay, and use an appropriate style of referencing to write it out. Wikipedia is not an acceptable source of reference and you will be penalised for including it in the reference section. Please write clearly, and structure your essay so that it is presentable and flows nicely. Clearly explain any models you refer to and discuss implications of their results.

Low bond yields in the 2010’s

The unconventional monetary policies followed by several central banks since 2008 has led to an increase in the demand for bonds, thus increasing the price of bonds and pushing bond yields much lower than historical average yields. For example, in February 2015 10-year bond yield were 2% in the US, 1.6% in Spain, 0.4% in Germany and Japan and -0.04% in Switzerland.
These low and especially negative bond rates are exceptional and have raised the question as to why bond investors are willing to accept such low bond yields. Unconventional monetary policies (quantitative easing or QE) that push up the demand for bonds and thereby increase bond prices are usually seen as the major reason for the low bond yields (remember the negative relationship between bond prices and bond yields).

Despite these low bond yields, investors have recently earned very favourable returns from bonds. For example, in 2014 the returns from the BlackRock Euro Bond Fund A2 EUR was 11.40%.  The total returns from investing in bonds consist of two parts: the yield on the bond, or the periodic interest rate payments, as well as potential capital gains or losses (selling the bond before maturity at a price higher or lower than the purchase price). In 2014, falling bond yields was the consequence of increased demand for bonds, leading to higher bond prices and thus capital gains for bond investors.

EC3214 Financial Economics II

Address the following issues in your write-up (see instructions above):

Firstly, Discuss some reasons for the low (and even negative) bond yields that prevailed at the beginning of 2015, by investigating themes like: Demographic changes among investors in industrialised nations; Currency gains from exchange rates; Negative Inflation; and Capital Regulations and Liquidity Requirements of institutional investors.

Secondly, Discuss the sustainability of these low bond yields.

Thirdly, Discuss the relationship between bond yields and capital gains that can be earned when investing in bonds. In other words, explain why bond investors earned relatively high total returns on bond funds in 2014, despite the record low bond yields at the time.

Fourthly,  Provide some reasons why bond investors were willing to accept negative bond yields in early 2015.

More details;

What were the effects of the financial crisis in 2008?

Consequences. While the collapse of large financial institutions was prevent ed by the bailout of banks by national governments, stock markets still dropped worldwide. In many areas, the housing market also suffered, resulting in evictions, foreclosures, and prolonged unemployment.
What were the causes of the 2007 global financial crisis?
The 2007 financial crisis is the breakdown of trust that occurred between banks the year before the 2008 financial crisis. It was caused by the subprime mortgage crisis, which itself was caused by the unregulated use of derivatives. … Despite these efforts, the financial crisis still led to the Great Recession.
What were the causes and effects of the 2008 financial crisis?
The financial crisis was primarily caused by deregulation in the financial industry. That permitted banks to engage in hedge fund trading with derivatives.  When the values of the derivatives crumbled, banks stopped lending to each other. That created the financial crisis that led to the Great Recession.
What is the effect of the financial crisis on exports?
When a financial crisis or shock hits a country, accessing capital becomes more difficult. As a result, crises reduce the extent to which firms enter export markets and limit the ability of firms to export new products or explore new markets.

More details;

Business retention, revolving loan funds, tax increment financing, tourism, bond issuance, PILOTs, tax abatement…

All are examples of the core strategies and tools utilized every day by most economic developers. Sometimes controversial, oftentimes boringly commonplace, often misunderstood– and almost always in need of some explanation as to why they work and why economic developers use them.

In their day, they might have been sexy like clusters and innovation–but age and gravity has taken their toll. They are now pervasive. Like two aspirin, they work wonders but who cares anymore. We do!

The problem with our traditional strategies and tools is that people mess with them. In particular media,  academics and sometimes the research institutes and think tanks. Often when they translate our strategies and tools into academic and policy research, the description and analysis of these strategies and tools gets distorted–sometimes downright manipulated. Does the expression, hatchet job come to your lips?

APA 12 point double spaced – please be careful to cite all references.
