MGT 212 08/30/2013: Homework 1

posted Aug 30, 2013, 7:43 PM by Robert Kirchman   [ updated Aug 30, 2013, 7:45 PM ]

In case any of you do not yet have access to the book, I scanned the first homework assignment and put it ("Scan_Bullying_Bosses_HW1.pdf") in "Forms and Docs".

DON'T ANSWER THE QUESTIONS IN THE SCANNED FILE!  For the assignment, please use the format I described in class and that is provided (also in Forms and Docs) in the file "caselearning.ppt".

Homework 1 is due on 9/10.

BUS 117: Present Value Factor online lookup tool

Hello Everyone

One of the homework problems asks you to calculate a present value, but requires a factor that isn't on the table in the book.  Here's an online tool that will give you factors that are outside those provided by the text:

ECON 102: Deadweight Loss and Positive Externality

posted Mar 27, 2012, 5:19 PM by Robert Kirchman

Hi Everyone
 
Hubbard and O'Brien does a not-so-great job of explaining where the deadweight loss arising from an externality comes from.
 
So I made a little exhibit to try to break it down a bit.  I chose the positive externality (benefit) case to illustrate.  Can you figure out how to do the negative externality (cost) case?
 
Go to "Forms and Docs" to see the exhibit.
