  3. ECON 545 Devry Tutorial Course ECON 545 Week 1 DQ 1 Supply and Demand ECON 545 Week 1 DQ 2 Elasticity and the Minimum Wage • What is the difference between a change in demand versus a change in quantity demanded? A change in supply versus a change in quantity supplied? Why is it so important to differentiate between these similar-sounding terms? • What are your thoughts about minimum wage legislation? What kind of a price-control policy is this? Who gains? Who loses? Are there alternatives to this legislation for achieving the same policy objectives? What role do demand and supply elasticities play in determining outcomes?

  4. ECON 545 Devry Tutorial Course ECON 545 Week 2 DQ 1 Marginal Analysis ECON 545 Week 2 DQ 2 Controlling Costs • Why is marginal analysis important in economics?  How do the tutorials Basics of Marginal Analysis and Understanding and Applying Marginal Analysis at the end of this week's lecturereinforce the concepts of marginal analysis? How can any firm find the right production level which guarantees maximum profit (or minimum loss)? • Name some of the ways firms attempt to control their costs. How does your firm control costs? The key here in keeping this question interesting is that reducing the workforce or having one person do the work of three people are not the only ways to control costs. I'm looking for more creative ways. Maybe you can think of some that your firm is not currently using. Be creative here.

Is this firm a monopoly? In what ways could it be considered a monopoly? What markets are involved? What anti-trust legislation would apply? Is anti-trust legislation "fair" to your chosen firm? Why or why not? • Scour the national media for a credible macroeconomic current issue (many good sources are available online) in which Chapters 19-21 is at the heart of the matter. Summarize your article for your colleagues and attach a link to your article. Make sure you appropriately refer to the textbook sections that apply to your chosen article

  7. ECON 545 Devry Tutorial Course ECON 545 Week 4 DQ 2 Healthcare ECON 545 Week 5 DQ 1 Trade Deficits • The healthcare sector is often cited as being fraught with just about every economic imperfection that is known to humankind. Can you identify and briefly describe ONE of these imperfections? Do you know of any examples? • What have been some major causes of the large U.S. trade deficits since 1992? What is a major benefit (you could address that issue) or a major cost (or you could address that issue) associated with trade deficits?

  8. ECON 545 Devry Tutorial Course ECON 545 Week 5 DQ 2 Exchange Rates ECON 545 Week 6 Course Project 2 Macroeconomic Analysis (Situation C) • Do a little research about foreign exchange traders.

  10. ECON 545 Devry Tutorial Course ECON 545 Week 7 DQ 1 The Public Sector ECON 545 Week 7 DQ 2 Forecasting • What is the appropriate balance between private and public (i.e., government) activity? Think of a case where the government has intervened (or it was suggested that government intervene) in a previously private market (e.g. Chrysler, tariffs on Japanese luxury cars, the airline industry, etc). What other examples can you think of? Using a marginal benefit/marginal cost analysis, support or argue against the intervention. • Let's discuss one of the most important areas of economics, namely the use of leading economic indicators to forecast the future direction of the macroeconomy.  What websites are helping you gain a better understanding of where the economy is heading in the next 12 months?
