Answer:
Type your response here...1 Reserve Requirements help to maintain a stable banking system and ensure banks are able to conduct day-to-day check clearing and cash withdrawal transactions. These requirements are also policy tools that the Federal Reserve can use to control the money supply. The most important role is to provide structure and stability to the banking system. 2 My actions would affect growth by placing holds on money transactions such as holds and loans. It’s more important to increase economic growth as opposed to decreasing, ensuring lower unemployment levels. 3 When the economy remains at a constant level or declines, the ability to support the population fails. Economic growth relates to the size and quality of the economy. Growth is measured as the change in the GDP after subtracting inflation. 4 Using reserve requirements would require close monitoring on bank holds and money.

Scenario 2
In 150 to 200 words, explain your reasoning for the way you are planning on using the Discount Rate. Be sure to address the following:

1. How the Discount Rate can affect the economy

The Train

...[13] By the 18th century, such wagonways and tramways existed in a number of areas. Ralph Allen, for example, constructed a tramway to transport stone from a local quarry to supply the needs of the builders of the Georgian terraces of Bath. The Battle of Prestonpans, in the Jacobite Rebellion, was fought astride a wagonway.[14] This type of transport spread rapidly through the whole Tyneside coal-field, and the greatest number of lines were to be found in the coalfield near Newcastle upon Tyne. Their function in most cases was to facilitate the transport of coal in chaldron wagons from the coalpits to a staithe (a wooden pier) on the river bank, whence coal could be shipped to London by collier brigs. The wagonways were engineered so that trains of coal wagons could descend to the staithe by gravity, being braked by a brakesman who would "sprag" the wheels by jamming them. Wagonways on less steep gradients could be retarded by allowing the wheels to bind on curves. As the work became more wearing on the horses, a vehicle known as a dandy wagon was introduced, in which the horse could rest on downhill stretches. Rails Because a stiff wheel rolling on a rigid rail requires less energy per ton-mile moved than road transport (with a highly compliant wheel on an uneven surface), railroads are highly suitable for the movement of dense, bulk goods such as coal and other minerals. This was incentive to focus a great deal of inventiveness upon the possible......

How Reserve Requirements affect the economy 2. How your action will affect economic growth 3. Why it is important to increase economic growth 4. Your rationale for the use of Reserve Requirements At the end of the game, you will be provided with this information to give to your instructor. Answer: The reserve requirements that affect the economy are the lower the amount that the reserve charges bank will in return lower rates and allow banks to be able to lend easier to a person or persons. By allowing credit to be obtained easier, it will allow the economy to slowly increase and come out of the recession. It is important to increase economic growth, because the economy cannot survive in a recession or an area that is in a direct standstill. I believe that the lowering the reserve requirements is the best option, because it allows the economy to start to turn around and come out of the recession. An economy that has come to a standstill or a recession will have to have an economic change or the economy will not be able to come out of the recession and thrive to its fullest potential.

Why it is important to increase economic growth 4. Your rationale for the use of Reserve Requirements At the end of the game, you will be provided with this information to give to your instructor. Answer: Reserve requirements help to maintain a stable banking system and ensure that banks are able to conduct day-to-day check-clearing and cash-withdrawal transactions. These requirements are also one of the three monetary policy tools that the Fed can use, in principle, to control the money supply. The other two are open market operations and the discount rate. By lowering the reserve requirement, the banks will have more to loan which will expand the money stock and in the short term lower interest rate which encourages consumers and investors to buy more. When people and investors are buying more this increases economic growth. Increasing economic growth is important because it keeps society moving in a positive direction. Economic growth also contributes to advancements and increases standards of living and lowers unemployment. I chose lowering the reserve requirements because this would stimulate lending, reduce unemployment, and increase overall income so that the economy could recover.

...How Record Companies Make Money By Diane Rapaport Record companies make money by selling recordings. It is a high-risk business. According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), approximately 90% of the records that are released by major recording labels fail to make a profit. Independent labels have to be more careful in their choices and in their allocation of expenses because they do not have the resources to cover many failures. However, they can make and promote records for far lower costs than major labels and be profitable with far fewer sales. The budgets for making and selling recordings are tied to what labels estimate they will sell. Knowing how many recordings might be sold makes it possible to budget recording costs. Most profitable labels have histories of selling and promoting that enable them to estimate gross income. Recording Costs Recording costs are borne by artists, not record companies. Record companies commonly make loans to artists (all-in advances) for these costs and recoup them from royalties. With the exception of jazz and classical artists, new major label artists can spend between $100,000 and $500,000 to make a record, but recording budgets of one million dollars and more are not uncommon. Many independent artists will spend less than $15,000. Manufacturing Costs Manufacturing includes replicating recorded material and packaging. The costs depend on the number to be manufactured.

Maglev Train

...Trends in increased mobility of large masses with changing lifestyle for more comfort are leading to congestion on roads with automobiles. Besides, increasing pollution levels from automobiles, depleting fuel resources, critical dependence on the fuel import and due to a limited range of mobility of buses and cars the need for fast and reliable transportation is increasing throughout the world. High-speed rail has been the solution for many countries. Trains are fast, comfortable, and energy-efficient and magnetic levitation may be an even better solution.Development of magnetic levitated transport systems is under progress in developed countries and it is just a matter of time they make inroads to India as well. Therefore, it will be interesting to know about the science and technology behind mass ground transport system known as "magnetic flight". A LITTLE HISTORY In 1922 a German engineer named Hermann Kemper recorded his first ideas for an electromagnetic levitation train. He received a patent in 1934 and one year later demonstrated the first functioning model. It wasn't until 1969, however, that a government-sponsored research project built the first full scale functioning Transrapid 01. The first passenger Maglev followed a few years later and carried people a few thousand feet at speeds up to 50 mph. The company, Munich's KraussMaffei, which built the first Transrapid, continued to build improved versions in a......

Week 6 Xeco 212 Money Train Multimedia Activity

...Money Train Multimedia Activity XECO/212 June 10, 2013 Nicholas Kuzmich Reserve Requirements 1. To increase growth, the Federal Reserve should lower reserve requirements. When reserve requirements are lowered, it means that banks are required to keep fewer funds in their reserves. As such, they will have more funds to loan, this will increase money supply. When supply of money increases, there will be a decrease in interest rates. When interest rate falls, investors and consumers will be more willing and able to borrow funds to invest and consume since it is now cheaper to borrow funds. When consumption and investments increase, it will increase aggregate demand and thus bring about economic growth. Economic growth is important to maintain or improve standard of living. In addition, economic growth helps to close recessionary gaps and thus reduces unemployment rates and increase level of income. On the other hand, when reserve requirements are increased, supply of money will fall. This will result in an increase in interest rates which will contribute to a decline in economic growth. Discount Rates 2. To slow down an economy, the Federal Reserve should increase discount rate. This makes it more expensive to borrow funds. As such, banks will have fewer funds available. When this happens, supply of money will decrease and this will result in an......

...Money Train # 1 The Federal Reserve helps control “liquidly” in the free market. During the times that banks see decreases in the reserve, they introduce the monetary policies. They can affect several things like increase the money flow into the banking system. The higher reserve indicates decrease liquidity and a slower activity in the flow of the economy. The potentials here are to have the banks increase their profit in turn allowing the banks to be more generous in lending and other regions. This allows the economic community to lend more money and the community itself to spend more money. This helps to keep the money flow stabilized and allows smaller banks to gain benefits and customers. #2 the discount rate is a rate that is set in order to maintain the rate at which a bank can borrow. Just like in any application the lower the rate the better the outlook. This enables the banks to lend to higher rips people and business. This too also helps stimulate the economy the high rate will affect the lending rate in turn lowering the economic status and economy. The Fed set the rates in this area; they hold all the cards for the people and business to become more successful. According to Mankiw, N. G.   Principles of economics 4th ed (2007)” The Fed uses discount lending not only to control the money supply but also to help financial institutions when they are in trouble”. Economic growth is very important because it provides the foundation for the future of society.......

Maglev Train

...Intrpduction : Maglev systems are becoming a popular application around the globe. Maglev trains are popular in transportation stations in big countries like Germany, China, Japan and the United States of America due to the demand for high-speed transportation, as the general public transportation services become more congested with increase of population. Maglev trains are magnetically levitated trains that traverse in a very high speed, with only electricity being its main source of energy. The train propels forward without any friction from moving mechanical parts. It has many advantages with minor drawbacks. The basis of maglev trains mechanisms are magnetic levitation. This is achieved with the principal of repulsion and attraction between two magnetic poles. When two magnets have the same poles, it will repel with each other and when it has different poles, the result would be otherwise. There are currently three known maglev suspension systems. In this project report, we will be covering the basic principals of Electrodynamic Suspension Systems (EDS), Electromagnetic Suspension Systems (EMS) and Inductrack. The three suspension systems each have different characteristics and special features. While EDS and EMS both use only the interaction of magnets and superconductors, Inductrack uses coils on the track underneath the train body. All three suspension systems work under the same principal of magnetic levitation covered in this project report. The maglev......

Maglev Train

...and even conventional trains seem to be too slow in comparison to planes. Now a new transportation mode has occurred that can clearly compete with planes in both speed and safety. They are called MAGLEV trains. The full form and the basic working principle of MAGLEV are called magnetic levitation. Many believe this mode of transportation holds great promise and offers considerable advantages. These trains use far less energy than other types of transportation and do not pollute. They can run at an average speed of 250mph that can climb much higher. The beauty of MAGLEV’S is that they travel on air. The consequent elimination of friction means much greater efficiency. Hence this gives an advantage over a regular train because there is no friction between wheels and the track. 2. WORKING PRINCIPLE The principle of magnetic levitation is that a vehicle can be suspended and propelled on a guidance track made with magnets. The vehicle on top of the track may be propelled with the help of a linear induction motor. Although the vehicle does not use steel rail they are still referred to as trains by definition they are along chain of vehicles which travel in the same direction. This is the definition of magnetic levitation (MAGLEV) train. As the frictional parts are minimum in this type of technology, the MAGLEV trains are known to have......

Be sure to address the following: 1. How Reserve Requirements affect the economy 2. How your action will affect economic growth 3. Why it is important to increase economic growth 4. Your rationale for the use of Reserve Requirements At the end of the game, you will be provided with this information to give to your instructor. Answer: The action that I selected was to lower the reserve requirement. Lowering the reserve requirements allows the bank to free more funds for lending. This action also reduced the amount of money that the banks were required to keep in their reserves. This increased the money supply that is available for use to the economy and lowered the interest rate for consumers. This action will assist the economy by providing more relaxed funding for all consumers and will aid in sparking economic growth. With more money available and easier funding by the banks, consumers are able to spend as needed. In this case, both businesses and consumers thrive economically. Increasing the reserve would reverse would have a negative effect on the economy and would take money away from consumers and businesses and could lead to an economic downturn.......

...MONEY Like it. Loathe it. Want it. Waste it. But you just cannot ignore it. That is “money”. According to Wikipedia, money is “any object or record that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts in a given country or socio-economic context”. Money was developed according to man’s needs and requirements. In the beginning, there was no money. People engaged in barter, “the exchange of good or service for another good or service” (Steven Cobb, 2007, page 1), without value equivalence. For instance, a bag of salt is exchanged for a bag of tea. However, since the items most traded were commodity products, the barter system posed several problems such as product storage, shelf life, durability, transportation and divisibility problems. The frustrations of people in the barter system soon led them to the creation of money. There are those who believe that the earliest forms of money were the Cowry shells and have been traced back to China in 1200 B.C. Then metallic money used as a mode of payment and was then made of gold, silver, copper or nickel because these were more durable, portable and easily divisible than Cowry shells. However, the problem of measuring its weight and value arose when the metals were not used as coin but as bullion. Additional problems such as inconsistent supply when mines were fully used, transportation and storage problems were also present. Eventually these soft metals were alloyed to cheaper...

Maglev Train

...scientist, created a theory that trains could be lifted off the tracks by the use of electromagnetic rails. Many assumptions and ideas were brought about throughout the following years, but it was not until the 1970’s that Japan and Germany showed interest in it and began researching and designing. The motion of the Maglev train is based purely on magnetism and magnetic fields. This magnetic field is produced by using high-powered electromagnets. By using magnetic fields, the Maglev train can be levitated above its track, or guideway, and propelled forward. Wheels, contact with the track, and moving parts are eliminated on the Maglev train, allowing the Maglev train to essentially move on air without friction. [pic] FIGURE[1] BASIC PRINCIPLE OF MAGLEV TRAIN Maglev can be used for both low and high speed transportation. The low speed Maglev is used for short distance travel. Birmingham, England used this low speed transportation between the years of 1984 and 1995. However, engineers are more interested in creating the high-speed Maglev vehicles. The higher speed vehicle can travel at speeds of nearly 343mph or 552 km/h. Magnetic Levitation mainly uses two different types of suspension, which are Electromagnetic Suspension and Electrodynamic Suspension. However, a third suspension system (Intuctrack) has recently been developed and is in the research and design phase. These suspension systems are what keep the train levitated off the......
