Project #36890 - Micro Economics Research Paper

Please see sylabbus which is attached that contains info about the research project. Also I will attach my professors email about the project below. Any questions please let me know! 

Class:

 

I want to discuss the term paper with you. We are at the appropriate point in this course to address this paper so here goes.

 

There are several topics in Microeconomics that you could write your paper on.  What I would like to see in your term paper, more specifically than what is listed on the Syllabus, is the following.  A reasonable topic could be analyzing a business’s costs. Analyzed from any of several different perspectives.  Use a market model like the one in Figure 9.6 page 187 or Figure 10.4 page 201, depending on the type of company you chose.  Suppose that their operation costs rise due to increased fuels costs, or increased healthcare costs.

 

Illustrate this as a shift up and to the left of the cost curves.  Do not move the demand curve.  For example it could be Fed Ex.  Demand remains constant (businesses and people still want packages shipped) but what happens if fuel costs rise.  Diesel price increases from $4/gallon to $5/gallon.  This is illustrated by showing the cost curves, as a group, shifting up and to the left in the model.  Costs rise, profits shrink, firm earnings fall and stock price falls.  Same is the analysis for airlines if fuel prices increases.

 

If you want to analyze a decline in natural gas prices, the opposite is the case, cost fall, costs curves shift down and to the right.  Profits increase, firm stock price rises.

 

If you want to analyze the increase in beef prices, avocado prices, tomato prices, etc. and their impact on restaurants like Chipotle (CMG) then go with that.

 

You need at least three references for your research paper.  One is your text.  You then just need to find a couple of news stories like from CNBC.com, WSJ.com or Bloomberg.com or some legitimate news source that references your view.

 

Don’t make this harder than it has to be.  Read the instruction in the Syllabus.  Include your purpose statement in the first paragraph like the following “The purpose of this research project is to show that an increase in fuel costs reduces firm profitability and may cause firm stock valuations to fall.”  Include the graph in your paper, include a references page, list your text and other sources and you should be good to go.
