initiatives. The Gig (Growth in Giving) program endeavors to increase philanthropy's gdp (gross domestic product) share. This initiative has assumed the shape of a large umbrella agency, in tandem with the development of the novel Gig Database (with its considerable research capacity). At present, over 6,000 nonprofits are now participating in the effort. Data/Variables An Excel-based, downloadable Fundraising Fitness Assessment has been developed by the FEP, enabling nonprofit entities' fundraising program measurement and evaluation against a collection of more than one hundred performance indicators based on 5 levels of donor giving (Tools - Fundraising Effectiveness Project). Additionally, the 7… Continue Reading...

Australian Economic Growth

than two decades, the economy of the nation has experience an average gdp growth rate of 3.5% every year. This growth rate has largely surpassed all other economies of major developed nations. For instance, the United States has an average growth rate of 2.6%, Canada having 2.5% and the United Kingdom having 2.2% (Tang, 2016). This can be illustrated in the diagram below. Source: Trading Economics Source: Focus Economics This remarkable progress is owing to the fact that Australia was relatively not affected by the global financial crisis, taking into consideration that the financial and banking system of Australia… Continue Reading...

Kuwait Case

with Kuwait having one of the highest Gross Domestic Product ( gdp) and the lowest fuel price and amount provides an idyllic chance for ownership of motorized vehicles for the citizens (Al-Bassam and Khan, 2004). With growth in the number of vehicles owned has come the increase in fuel consumption. However, these benefits have also given rise to some associated problems for the populations of Kuwait. For instance, the increase in the number of motor vehicles within the state has been a key source of urban air pollution, which is a severe health problem for the public and thereby, also… Continue Reading...

Germanys Economic Policies

boosted tax revenue. The boost also comes in terms of reduction of debt-to- gdp ratio even with rising debt. Germany has done an amazing job of successfully addressing many serious financial hurdles and weaknesses brought on by the post-unification period. They did so by introducing a robust economic structure characterized by a good mixture of industrial and service sectors and a wave of reforms that improved several key areas. These key areas are the pension system, unemployment benefits, and corporate taxation among others (). In terms of monetary policy, Germany's budgetary situation remains positive thanks to its decrease of debt-to-gdpContinue Reading...

In a way, this means that Peter Jackson has increased New Zealand's gdp even though it is difficult to enumerate it, it is apparent that the film industry has passively impacted on New Zealand economy (Pinchefsky, 2012). It has been noted that the most significant change to the middle Earth cultural fabric is the absence of song and poetry. Tolkien makes use of song and poetry as indices to cultural identity of the society in most of the books, including 'The Lord of the Rings'. The important role can best be understood… Continue Reading...

Greek Debt Crisis

IMF was open to this, it was only one member of the Troika. Varoufakis also wanted the country's gdp target to be more realistic. Another theorist, Dimitrios Kyriakou, views the Greek crisis "as a perfect storm" of events: the country was "lured" into the EU on false promises and should never have been admitted in the first place because of its instability -- then it quickly fell after the recession and became a debt-colony. This theorist also asserts that the only solution for Greece is to be more realistic -- no more easy credit with the expectation of "a… Continue Reading...

of helplessness. Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir combined for 45.8% of the country's gdp, representing significant economic disparity between these urban centers and the rest of the country, when extrapolated to a per capita basis (Turkstat, 2014). Per capita gdp in the wealthiest provinces runs around four times that of the poorest. So there is an economic element to the strained relationship between Turkey and Islam -- it's not just about the role of religion in society. Religious Power Islam holds more power in the rural areas than in the cities. The tensions may run the gamut of economic, social… Continue Reading...

Although the Chinese sports industry only contributes to 0.63% of the gdp in 2013, however, since 2000, the sports industry has recorded more than 4% annual growth rate based on the increase in the household spending. After the Olympic game in 2008, the market value of the Chinese sports industry has increased by 20%. A report by the Chamber of Commerce (2015) shows that before the success of Lina's, the CSSM ("Chinese Sports Sponsorship Market") value (p 1) was approximate $2 billion yearly. Currently, the CSS market value is more than $15 billion. Typically,… Continue Reading...

Vietnam's business environment is generally poor. The country is run by a Communist government, which exerts strong control over business. This is particular true in the education sector, where in 2012 Decree 73 was passed, placing strict rules for foreign educational institutions operating in Vietnam. The minimum investment is set at $15million USD, and there is a minimum cost per student of $7,500… Continue Reading...

First, the gdp of the area in which the stations are located influences gasoline consumption, by influencing how much people use, and how many people live and work in the area. On a bigger level, economic growth on the global scale is a driver of demand for oil products, and will therefore influence the price of oil. The gdp growth rate for the third quarter of 2016 was 3.2%, up… Continue Reading...

Its level of development is, however, in line with that of its neighbors. The country has potential oil wealth, however, ranking in between Malaysia and Indonesia in terms of proved reserves, but having no refining capacity (CIA World Factbook, 2016). Precursors to Economic Development The first precursor to economic development is resources. South Sudan has oil reserves as its primary resource. The country's oil wealth is sufficient to provide a… Continue Reading...

How to Grow the Economy

a good thing. The more spending there is, the higher the gross domestic product ( gdp) typically is and the same is typically seen with employment. More spending at stores due to tax refunds or cuts means more people needed to man the registers and stock the shelves. More spending on roads means the construction workers will have more money that they spend on meals, groceries and other things (IMF, 2014). Anyhow, the question still remains how the reserve ratio should be used when expansionary economic times are the goal. Generally speaking, the reserve ratio is lowered, rather than raised,… Continue Reading...

and imports" -- that is, 15% of the UK's gdp (p. 2). However, with the European economy flailing and nationalism rising in many countries from the U.S. to Italy to the Netherlands to Russia to the Philippines to France and so on, there is a major economic incentive to adopt a policy that is to some degree mercantilist-protectionist and to another degree based on mutually beneficial terms that enable both sides of the trading table to prosper (Pabst, 2010). The zero-sum game of the past century played by world powers has not ended well (debt is at never-before-seen levels… Continue Reading...

Solow Growth Model and Unemployment

characterized by rising populations, intensive resource exploitation and continuous technological improvements, are on a long-run growth trend in their gdp. The business cycle should be identifiable outside of that trend. The degree of influence between business cycles and the trend is subject to debate. For example, in the United States the recession of 2008-2009 is believed by some to have permanently set the country's growth trajectory below where the previous trendline was -- so the business cycle will have a long-run influence on the trend, even once the recession has ended and the growth stage renewed. Different economic schools… Continue Reading...

Why 2017 May Be a Good Time to Buy Gold

the mean regression occurs that Collum predicts in the wake of a massive market unwinding. Macroeconomic Indices gdp is the gross domestic product of a nation -- i.e., the market value of goods/services produced in the nation -- and a leading indicator of economic strength. Collum (2016) notes that while gdp in the U.S. has not shown any real measurement of considerable growth in the past 8 years, the real troubling ratio is the debt to gdp ratio, which is near 100% in the U.S. and near 300% in China. The world is being buried under a tsunami of debt and… Continue Reading...

Key Concepts in Economics

healthy. This is bound to have a positive impact on the Gross Domestic Product ( gdp) of the United States. In fact, it is projected that the gdp growth rate will increase to 2.1% in the 2017 fiscal year. This will be an improvement in comparison to the 1.9% projected rate of 2016 (The Balance, 2017). Conclusion I agree with the points elucidated by Schwartz (2016) in the economic article. In 2009, the United States economy experienced the highest rate of unemployment as it hit the 10% mark. The economic improvement can be perceived in the considerable decline in the… Continue Reading...

The Black Wall Street

in Tulsa and Black Wall Street are economic growth and gdp. Economic growth was evident in Greenwood Avenue in Tulsa thanks to the businesses booming from a loyal and consistent customer base. Because the black business owners supplied their customers with the items they needed, it was a closed and prosperous economy. All the money spent in that area was reinvested. gdp refers to Gross Domestic Product and is a measure of citizens' well-being. Although this applies to the national population, it can be placed in a local population. The gdp of the people in Greenwood Avenue in Tulsa… Continue Reading...

Criminology in America

countries, the domestic income produced, also known as the gdp can be diverted towards criminal rehabilitations and strengthening of law enforcement agencies, unlike developing countries. Thus, the gdp produced by developed nations could be channelled towards properly developing rules and systems aimed at reducing criminal activities (Gonzalaez). Case Study from Quebec Region Crime cannot be truly referred to as an "urban problem". An analysis of police data from 2005 showed that the smaller urban regions experienced more levels of crime than the major urban regions. Rural areas, however, had the least crime rates. Analysing the situation in the Quebec… Continue Reading...

The country’s gdp represents approximately 33 percent of the sub-Saharan total and the South African economy has experienced sustained growth of 3.2 percent over the past 5 years (US commercial service, 2014). According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, “The U.S. Commercial Service in South Africa is co-located with the U.S. Consulate General [with the] mission  to create jobs in the United States by advancing commercial opportunities in South Africa and strategically assisting firms export U.S. products and services” (U.S. commercial service, 2014, para. 2).

Greece Economic Problems Analysis

capitalist economy, but with significant public sector contribution – about 40% of total gdp is from government activity. This speaks more to the relatively small size of the Greek private sector than to excessive government ownership of industry. Tourism is one of the major drivers of the Greek economy, accounting for 18% of gdp (CIA World Factbook, 2017). Thus Greece would be characterized as a mixed economy with some government-owned entities. Greece is a member of the EU, but has also received several bailouts in recent years, and struggles with tax collection, and overall economic development. Tax evasion ranges… Continue Reading...

Economy and U.s. Health Care

harming the nation’s economy by bringing about employment and gdp declines and a growth in inflation. Greater national expenditure adversely impacts economic development, to a considerable extent. Rise in workforce health insurance premiums has deterred investors from investing in the US and led them to turn their attention to Canada and other such economies having appreciably lower employer premium burdens. In sectors like the automotive sector, employee insurance at the time of manufacturing an automobile stands at 1,300 dollars, which is costlier as compared to the steel that forms the automobile’s body. This sort of huge premium decreases companies’… Continue Reading...

Comparing the Us and Canadian Healthcare Systems

Other outcomes where the Canadian system performs better are in cost – at 10% of gdp compared with 16% in the US, infant mortality and life expectancy, but studies generally attribute these to lifestyle factors just like Krell did (Magee, 2017). Structures The key structural differences between the systems are that the US has a convoluted structure with a lot of free market influence; Canada has a relatively simple structure with single payer and minimal free market influence. What does this mean in the US? It means a few things. The profit motive is cited for a high rate… Continue Reading...

Intelligent Information Systems for Cars and Highways

at roughly US$1 trillion, nearly 3 percent of the world’s gross domestic product ( gdp) (Hubaux, Capkin & Luo, 2014). In addition to promoting safety and reducing the costs associated with accidents, smart technologies can also cut down costs associated with road and traffic management, infrastructure, urban planning, and development. Building new highways is not always feasible or cost-effective. To account for urban growth around the world, smart technologies enable efficient traffic management that can supplant the need for building new roads, making IVHS ideal for promoting safety, environmental sustainability, and cost savings too (Collier and Weiland, 1994). Traffic congestion… Continue Reading...

Obama’s First Year in Office

recession: the housing bubble that had grown under Bush II popped in 2007-08 and caused gdp to crash deep into negative territory in 2009 (Amadeo). This was certainly not Obama’s fault, but the perception among some was that Obama was at least partly responsible for the state of things—especially since he voted for TARP, the bailout that allowed the big banks to put the burden of their mistakes on the backs of tax payers to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars (Hoven). However, and as Randall Hoven points out, the TARP bailout was quickly paid back to… Continue Reading...

(by taking jobs out of the domestic market) even while it boosted a nation’s gdp on paper (by allowing multinationals to profit at the domestic laborer’s expense) (Quijones, 2012). The WTO was another manifestation of GATT and essentially a new form of mercantilism (Ahmed & Bick, 2017) made appealing to emerging markets because of the promise of position, which they would have in the new world trade order. Increasing globalization is the growing interconnectedness of nations’ economies as a cross-border movement of technology, intellectual property, goods, services, and information flows faster and further than ever before in the history… Continue Reading...

The U.s Economy and Health Care

spending in the United States has doubled as a share of gdp since the 1980s, largely due to changes in insurance plans, provider payment methods and public sector programs (Boddy et al., 2015). The latter are in particular important – federal spending on healthcare is increasing rapidly. Demographic shifts bear some of the blame for that – the baby boomers are a massive generation aging into Medicare territory, a demographic time bomb on the nation's finances, given that seniors are the largest segment of health care spenders and that end-of-life care in particular is expensive (CBO, 2017). This paper… Continue Reading...

Economic Impact Australian Mining Boom

than threefold and also the investment made in mining as a percentage of the nation’s gdp increasing from 2 percent to 8 percent. Imperatively, during the mining boom period, there was a significant increase in demand for minerals. This is because of the demand for minerals not only locally but also internationally. Therefore, this caused a rightward shift in the demand curve. This leads to the positioning of a new equilibrium price. The comparative theory best explains the exportation of minerals by Australia and the importation of other commodities from other nations. In this regard, Australia is considered to… Continue Reading...

Real PCE has essentially stayed the same over the last 10 years (between .68 and .69), indicating that the FED’s unconventional monetary policy has not worked to kick-start the economy in any meaningful way. And while Real gdp has risen from 14938 in 2007 to 17163 in 2017, the measures of Real gdp may not be as effective in determining economic health as the FED might have the public believe, especially when one considers the effect of the shadow or hidden economy… Continue Reading...

Real gdp has risen steadily over the last three years: Source: FRED (2018a) Inflation as measured by CPI has also risen steadily: Source: FRED (2018b) This should not be surprising as the Fed’s policy (and every other central bank’s policy around the world) has been to “quantitatively ease” the market shock that emanated from the Global Economic Crisis of 2008 by way of printing trillions of new dollars and propping up the bond market with them.

and at the same time as petroleum subsidies which characterised the period reached 2.4% of gdp in 2008 (Adam, 2010). Dissimilar fiscal rules may be necessitated to address the fiscal challenges the West African region is likely to experience as it generates oil revenues. According to Adam (2010), the most prevalent fiscal rule is the permanent income rule centred on the Permanent Income Hypothesis established and advanced by Milton Friedman. In particular, this rule necessitates that spending ought to be fixed at levels similar to the present discounted value of oil revenues in the future. The upside of this… Continue Reading...

purchasing power parity (PPP) formula (Fogel, 2010). The Chinese authorities hold a target of quadrupling its gdp by the year 2020 and also doubling its per capita Gross domestic product. An extensive market economy system plus some decrease in government function has been apparent ever since 1978. The authorities encourage a combined economic framework that has started out from a socialist, centrally designed economic system to a socialist market financial system, or a “market economic system together with socialist features.” The rapid manufacturing growth has been accomplished by escalating technological developments, massive international investment as well as efficiency growth.… Continue Reading...

Globalization and Neoliberalism Pros and Cons

(2004) effectively demonstrates how individual level purchasing power has increased as well as macro-level measures like gdp. Ultimately, both Norberg (2004) and Hart-Landsberg (2006) want the same thing: global wealth equality and higher standards of living for all people. Yet while Norberg (2004) offers cogent, long-term, financially and ethically feasible solutions to current problems of wealth inequality and social injustice, Hart-Landsberg (2006) spends the entire article discussing only why globalization is bad. Instead of focusing only on the drawbacks of neoliberalism and globalization, it would be helpful to know what alternatives or solutions the author might suggest. Using stock… Continue Reading...

India Government and Economics

that is not the case anymore. Since the 1990s, India’s economy has grown rapidly—with gdp growth at about 7% per year—because of relaxed controls on foreign trade (CIA World Factbook, 2018; World Bank, 2018). Currently, the European Union is actually India’s number one trading partner, accounting for 13.5% of India\'s overall trade with the world in 2015-16 (European Commission, 2018). China and the United States are a close second. India’s India Central Board of Excise and Customs controls tariffs, which do fluctuate in response to market conditions. For example, in November of 2017, India imposed a whopping 50% import… Continue Reading...

Preventing Mitigating Impacts Of Sea Level Increase

(Chen, p.925). These coastal areas play a critical role in the country’s gdp and national industrial output where they account for 55% and 65% respectively. The rising sea levels will have considerable impact on plants and animals in China, particularly humans. It’s estimated that sea level increase will affect approximately 145 million people as well as agricultural productivity through changes in rainfall, which will in turn negatively impact irrigation systems (Middlehurst par, 1). Sea level increase will contribute to a coastal retreat of 300m annually in China and result in an average erosion of 25m yearly (Cai et al.,… Continue Reading...

made sense that they had the bulk of the gdp. “Starting around the 1820s—the decade economists Kevin H. O’Rourke of Oxford and Jeffrey G. Williamson of Harvard have pegged as the start of modern globalization—the G7 share starts to swell. Over the course of about 170 years, it goes from about one-fifth up to about two-thirds of world income. That’s how powerful globalization—the movement of goods across borders—was” (Baldwin, 2018). This demonstrates the sheer transformative force of globalization and how it has the ability to alter economies and lifestyles and modes of conduct.

But these variables also impact on things like government policy, so there are indirect impacts on financial performance as well, and the financial manager also needs to understand these. The main tool that financial managers use are complex financial models. These models seek to illustrate the impact that different variables have on the company – both internal and external variable.

The problem with this is that it makes a number of assumptions about the consuming habits of people—habits that are based on past consuming habits of prior generations, which are no guarantee of how a thrifty generation that has suffered through the collapse of credit will respond to being given free money. Moreover, the one guarantee of “free” fiat money (money printed by central banks rather than taken from taxes collected by the government or obtained through the sale of debt—i.e., Treasuries), is… Continue Reading...
