According to a wakefield research survey of adult women…

According to a Wakefield Research survey of adult women, 50% of the women said that they had tried five of more diets in their lifetime. Suppose that this result is true for the current population of adult women. A random sample of 13 adult women is selected. Use the binomial probabilities table or technology to find the probability of the number of women in this sample of 13 who had tried 5 or more diets in their lifetime is 
a) at most 7
b) 5 to 8
c) at least 7

In this problem we are going to calculate bond prices and returns

Question 1

1.

In this problem we are going to calculate bond prices and returns

Suppose that the yield on a 3 year note is 1.3%.

a) (10 points) Calculate the price of the 3 year note (face value = $1000) with three annual coupon payments (after year 1, after year 2, after year 3) of $25, i.e., coupon rate is 2.5%.

b) (5 points) Is this note selling at a discount or premium? Explain.

Suppose that after one year and after you receive one coupon payment, you decide to sell your note. Your note is now a two year note with one coupon payment after

1 year and another after year 2. Consider the following two scenarios:

Scenario #1 – interest rates on what is now a two year note (i.e., your note) have fallen to 1.00%

Scenario #2 – interest rates on what is now a two year note (i.e., your note) have risen to 2%

c) (10 points) Calculate the price that you can sell your note for under scenario #1 and the associated rate of return when you sell your note given Scenario #1

d) (10 points) Calculate the price that you can sell your note for under scenario #2 and the associated rate of return when you sell your note given Scenario #2

Leading up to and during the Lehman Brothers collapse, overnight lending markets became quite volatile, as shown by the figure below.

a)     (10 points for correct and completely labeled diagram) On your exam sheet, draw a reserve market diagram depicting points A, B, and C. Assume that the Fed

held reserve supply constant and that the volatility in the effective federal funds rate originated from the volatility in reserve demand. Note, this is the period before the

Fed obtained the authority to pay interest on reserves

b)    (10 points) In hindsight the Fed could have done a better job in terms of hitting their federal funds target = 2%.  Explain in words what they should have done to avoid point B

and what they should have done differently to avoid point C. Note that we are still in the period before the Fed obtained the authority to pay interest on reserves.

c)     (10 points) Draw a reserve market diagram depicting your answer for part b) above. Be sure to label points A, B  and C. Note that we are still in the period before the

Fed obtained the authority to pay interest on reserves.

d)    (20 points total: 10 points for complete and correctly labeled diagram and 10 points for explanation) Now let’s pretend that we were in a new regime (as they are now)

where the Fed sets the interest rate they pay on reserves at 25 basis points below the federal funds target and the discount rate set 25 basis points above the federal

funds target.  In the space below, redraw the reserve market diagram accounting for this new regime.  Make sure you label points A, B, and C under

this new and current regime.  Explain in detail as to why the implied (actual) funds rate is different in this new regime relative to the old regime as in 1.a).

Consider an economy described by the following:

a) (5 points) Derive an expression for the IS curve and MP curve.

b) (5 points) Derive an expression for the aggregate demand curve.

c) (5 points) We consider two inflation rates to ‘pin’ down our curves.  Let point A represent conditions where inflation (Π)  = 1% and point B represent conditions

where inflation (Π ) = 2%. Solve for the equilibrium output and the real rate of interest when Π =1.  Solve for the equilibrium output and the real rate of interest when Π = 2. 

Label these points as points A (where Π =1 ) and points B (where Π = 2) on all three of your diagrams.

(Please Respond to her post)

Hi Shaunglazier,

I enjoyed reading your post. I like the idea of the vaccine for Bilharzia but I read that is not common in the United States. However, it does affect almost 240 million people worldwide. It is more common in in tropical places and in Africa. I do think that a vaccine would be great but can you think of any other ways that it can be prevented? Especially for people who travel out of the US to other countries or islands, that may not experience any complications with that specific parasite. Should government officials have services that test natural waters around the areas where the parasite is common?

b) Details of the assessment task

You are asked to analyse a contemporary and in future magnifying change in an international supply chain context that demonstrates the importance of sustainability.

Select a case of sustainability opportunities in a global supply chain, and use that case to explain best practices and critical aspects of either

• •

sourcing strategy or

supplier selection.

The task requires you to apply the evidence (data and theory implications) to making informed judgements about the contemporary developments of the industry and market dynamics in question. Students should acknowledge theory,

secondary data and qualitative case evidence alike.
The notion of an applied literature review here is that you use journal articles, secondary data and complementary trade journals and company reports for the purposes of an industry-

level analysis.
Explicitly choose one specific country and one specific

industry to demonstrate your arguments.

INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: Product

In the Marketing Analysis Presentation provided by your marketing team, you’ll see three different basketballs that need to be included in the product display on Slide 2. Each product has unique features.

  • Based on the information provided about the customers that shop at the store location on Slide 3, choose the basketball that you think will sell the most. Explain the rationale for your decision.

Step 2: Place

On Slide 4 of the Marketing Analysis Presentation, you’ll see the results of a survey that asked potential buyers about where they are most likely to purchase these products.

  • Use your knowledge about product placement to choose the best place to sell the products, deciding between traditional stores and online. Explain the rationale for your decision.

Step 3: Promotion

Slide 5 of the Marketing Analysis Presentation shows three recommended advertisements, including a special deal promotion, for the product that is expected to sell the best.

  • Based on the information provided about the customers that shop at this store location on Slide 3, determine which promotional activity will sell the most product at this particular store. Explain the rationale for your decision.

Step 4: Price

Finally, Look at the pricing options available for each of the three products together on Slide 6.

  • Based on your knowledge of the Pricing Strategies discussed on pages 186-187 in the textbook, choose the option that has the best pricing mix for all three products. Refer to the customer information on Slide 2, if needed. Explain the rationale for your decision.

Note: You should complete Step 5 after reading the material in Week 7.

Step 5: Brand & Sales Pitch

The company that makes one of the basketballs is looking to rebrand the product. They have asked for your input on possible brand ideas.

  • First, read the Brand Vision statement which summarizes the goal for the new brand. Then, look at the logo, name, and tagline recommendations. Which of the two brand directions do you think best meets the goals of the brand vision? Please support your decisions.
  • Second, write a 2-3 sentence sales pitch that you would use to try to convince someone to purchase this product.

Step 6: Market Segmentation

The marketing plan for the basketballs at the Brooklyn store has been in place now for four months, and the marketing team has assembled a report reviewing sales data and customer feedback for the last quarter’s basketball sales. Overall, the results are lower than you expected and you are concerned that your marketing and creative staff have not properly segmented your target customers. Remember, like many products in the marketplace, the basketball’s marketing campaigns must target two different groups of customers: (1) adults who purchase the item as a gift and, therefore, do not actually use the product; and (2) adults and teenagers who purchase the item for their own use and enjoyment. Both groups have different reasons and expectations surrounding the item in question, and those reasons and expectations will have significant impacts on the buyers’ purchasing decisions.
