ECO 365 Week 1 Challenging Concepts
Recall the readings and activities you have completed this week and describe the one or two points that were least clear to you. What questions do you have that would help you understand these points better?
 
 
 
ECO 365 Week 2 Microeconomics and the Laws of Supply and Demand
Complete one of the following options:
Option 1:
Complete the Supply and Demand Simulation.
Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper summarizing the content of the simulation and address the following: 

  • Identify two microeconomics and two macroeconomics principles or concepts from the simulation/video.

  • Explain why you have categorized these selected principles or concepts as microeconomics or macroeconomics.

  • Identify at least one shift of the supply curve and one shift of the demand curve in the simulation/video.

  • Explain what causes the shifts, and how each shift affects the price, quantity, and decision making.


Include responses to the following: 

  • How might you apply what you learned about supply and demand from the simulation/video to your workplace or your understanding of a real-world product with which you are familiar?

  • How do the concepts of microeconomics help you understand the factors that affect shifts in supply and demand on equilibrium price and quantity?

  • How do the concepts of macroeconomics help you understand the factors that affect shifts in supply and demand on the equilibrium price and quantity?

  • How does the price elasticity of demand affect a consumer's purchasing and the firm's pricing strategy as it relates to the simulation/video?

ECO 365 Week 3 Current Market Conditions Competitive Analysis
Imagine you are part of a strategic planning group at a large corporation that is considering the development of a new product. The marketing director has asked you to do a competitive market analysis to determine the product's potential success. The analysis will focus on your primary competitor in the product's market.
 Select a product and a competitor that produces the same or similar product. 
Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word paper analyzing current market conditions addressing all of the following topics:

  • Describe the product and give a short history of the competitor that produces it 

  • Define the market for your chosen product, including an analysis of its competitors, and customers.

  • List the factors that affect demand, supply, and prices in the market in which the competitor operates

  • Predict the price and income elasticity of demand for the product (either through a web search or by using theory to predict the coefficients)

  • List the factors affecting fixed and variable costs, including the protential for economies of scale and the marginal productivity of labor.


Make recommendations on how your organization can maximize their profit-making potential and successfully compete in the new market. Consider the effect your recommendations may have on marginal revenues and costs.
 Use a minimum of 3 peer reviewed sources.
 Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

ECO 365 Week 4 Differentiating Between Market Structures
You will apply important microeconomics concepts toward the competitive strategies of an organization that operates in the market in which the product you wrote about in Week 3 is sold. You will evaluate the differences between market structures and identify competitive strategies consistent with the market structure that best aligns with the market in which your product is sold. You will assess how market structure positively and negatively affects your ability to earn an economic profit over time and evaluate the effectiveness of the organization's competitive strategies.
Select a product from the products each of you wrote about in Week 3.
Identify the market structure in which this product is sold. Using the definitions in your readings, clearly indicate why you chose that particular market structure. Be sure to explain why you did not select three of the four following market structures: 

  • Oligopoly

  • Perfect competition

  • Monopoly

  • Monopolistic competition


Identify three or more competitive strategies that you can use to maximize your profits over the long run. Evaluate the effectiveness of these strategies in the market structure you identified. Consider the following: 

  • Expected changes in supply and demand

  • Price elasticity of demand

  • Market structure

  • Government regulations


Make recommendations related to the strategies you might consider to maximize your profits and consider the following: 

  • What are the ethical implications of these strategies?

  • Does this strategy align with your own values?

  • Whether it is possible that new foreign or domestic companies will enter the market or that mergers will narrow the market and how that will affect market structure, price elasticity of demand, pricing, and the sustainability of profits

  • Whether current and expected government policies and regulations, including taxes and regulations are possible in the future
