Question #1
Another important measure of how an economy is performing is the unemployment rate, but there is more to the unemployment rate than just the headline rate reported on the news.
In particular, we are going to look at the U3 rate (the Headline rate), the U6 rate, and the labor force participation rate.
Go to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
On their home page, from the menu on the top of the page, click on “Economic Releases,” choose “Latest Releases,” click on “Employment Situation,” and then on “Employment Situation Summary.” Read the report. Then using the tables linked from the bottom of the report, find:
the U3 rate;
the U6 rate; and,
the labor force participation rate.
What are the differences among these measures? Note the percentages of each, what each measure includes, and then express your views on what factors may be causing the U6 rate to be roughly twice the U3 rate and what may be causing the decline in the labor participation rate. Is the headline rate used by most news reports misleading?
For your information, here is a summary of the six unemployment measures.
U-1, persons unemployed 15 weeks or longer, as a percent of the civilian labor force;
U-2, job losers and persons who completed temporary jobs, as a percent of the civilian labor force;
U-3, total unemployed, as a percent of the civilian labor force (this is the definition used for the official unemployment rate);
U-4, total unemployed plus discouraged workers, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus discouraged workers;
U-5, total unemployed, plus discouraged workers, plus all other marginally attached workers, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all marginally attached workers; and
U-6, total unemployed, plus all marginally attached workers, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all marginally attached workers.
Sources you can use: 
Review the Bureau of Labor Statistics Employment Situation Report

Assignment # 1 1. Why should managers use study supply, demand and their elastic

Assignment # 1
1. Why should managers use study supply, demand and their elasticities?
2. What is the difference between Accounting and Economic Profit?
Case Study: 
3-2 House Closing       
You’ve entered into a contract to purchase a new house, and the closing is scheduled for next week. It’s typical for some last-minute bargaining to occur at the closing table, where sellers often try to tack on extra fees. You have three options for the closing: (1) attend yourself, (2) send an attorney authorized to close only per the previously negotiated terms, or (3) pre-sign all the closing documents per the current terms and not attend the closing. Consider each bargaining position; which position would you go with and why?

Context
In this week’s discussion you assume the role of CEO of a company. In anticipation of the upcoming quarterly disclosure of profits, you prepare your Board of Directors for the pressure that cost-push inflation is having on profits. There will be some erosion of profits.
Also see the help provided in the discussion preparation.
Instructions
For this discussion, assume the role of CEO of one of the following hypothetical companies:
All America Grocery Inc. We serve communities in the middle of the income market, providing low prices for all basic grocery needs. Our modest-income consumers expect good deals on good quality foods. The Covid-19 pandemic has put upward pressure on the price of everything we sell. Cost-push inflation from multiple sources is impacting our operating cost and our cost of goods. We are both fortunate and unfortunate that the price elasticity of demand for food is .20.
Very Big US Auto. Very Big US Auto is one of the oldest and largest manufacturers of autos in the United States. Very Big US Auto has an international supply chain and is highly dependent on components manufactured abroad and assembled in the United States. Costs are rising on all aspects of production across the industry. Very Big US Auto is seeing inflationary pressure in everything we use: labor, materials, components, and computer chips. On the demand side, Very Big US Auto knows that demand is relatively elastic with a price elasticity of demand of 1.2. But we also know that the pandemic has made some transportation substitutes less acceptable.
Big Time Entertainment. Big Time Entertainment is a nationwide firm providing movies, concerts, arcades, and other in-person entertainment venues such as bowling and roller skating. Our operations have been heavily impacted during the Covid-19 pandemic, including continuing limits on number of guests and new costs associated with safety measures for both staff and customers. We are now reopening but facing a continued cost-push inflation. We also face uncertainty as to the potential for additional shutdowns. Customers are fearful, and the guidance on operating our facilities means we are operating far below our optimal number of patrons to cover the higher cost of everything. Price elasticity of demand is 1.6, and we are also faced with competition from online entertainment and gaming, which are not experiencing many of these cost pressures.
In your discussion post, address the following prompts within the context of your chosen hypothetical company of which you are the CEO:
Is the demand curve for your product relatively elastic, inelastic, or unitary elastic? Demonstrate this for your company’s product by how much the quantity demanded will change if you pass on the 10% increase in cost. In other words, prepare a forecast showing by what percentage the quantity demanded will change if your prices are raised by 10%. You must provide calculations showing the percentage change in quantity demanded.
Will you pass on most or all of the cost increase to your customers? Why or why not?
