Appendix 1 4.1 Fruito inventory records are inaccurate and it will impact the company value chain. It will create situation such as out of stocks or high stock and increase wastage. Similar mistakes in count will increase unnecessary ordering and high stock and out of stock situations. This both risks can be mitigated by not informing the receiving team about the quantity ordered and they are compiled to count the order and signatures will provide responsibilities for each duty that the receiving party performing. Therefore by implementing Just In Time inventory systems (JIT) will provide accurate information for ordering based on actual sales data and especially for perishable products.
The influence will be different, it depends on the purpose of these products. For example, if these products are used to produce other products, it will cause their products cannot produce in time and it will let their timetable disorganize. However, if these products are important for them which means this timetable cannot be disorganized. They have to find a new supply of goods, and maybe cost more money for the same products (means it will let their cost raise). In addition, if they cannot find supply of goods, and their products have to provide to their customers, they will face reputation risk too.
Ever since the Great Depression, the minimum wage has been in effect — in order to reduce poverty and solidify that employees are paid a reasonable sum. Although the minimum wage can be beneficial and advantageous for individuals and to our economy as a whole, it can also be detrimental to our nation’s finances. The federal government should not allow this to pass, but rather they should increase the citizens’ knowledge of the pernicious consequences and complications that will arise with a higher minimum wage, especially one as high as $15 per hour. Some of the resulting conflicts that will occur if this possible raise in the federal minimum wage takes effect are: job loss, business failure, higher consumer prices, and a lower demand for uneducated employees. Although it may appear as if increasing the federal minimum wage will help to lift families out of poverty, in
(The Brewing Industry) Railroads are gaining profit because alcohol producing companies are paying them to distribute their product to stores. Telegraph companies are benefiting due to different companies interacting and negotiating with each other. Lastly, mechanical refrigeration units are not cheap, so if alcohol companies are buying the units, the makers of the refrigeration units are making huge profits. This complex flow of money helps the economy run smoothly. On the other hand, the prohibition of alcohol had a very negative affect on the economy.
Vertical integration could cut operating costs making profit increase, but you have to weigh the pros and cons to help determine if that is worth doing. Panera is able to make their dough and sell it to many different franchisees, but is this enough money to offset the other costs? Location is a key success factor. If you are in a location where there tends to be a large amount of
The demand for stock became so great that the prices went up, but the value of the companies didn’t actually increase. The true effect that the consumer culture had on Americans during this period is evidenced through a line in a popular song during the time period, “they used to tell me I was building a dream, and so I followed the mob” (Song of the Depression: “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?, 230). The new, strong consumer culture that was created caused people to buy stock on credit, but eventually people stopped paying the inflated prices. This was detrimental as the market became flooded with unwanted stock, causing stock prices to drop and a widespread panic. The new consumer culture is what led to 16.5 million shares being sold in one day, which was detrimental to the stock market as it caused the crash on October 29, 1929.
There is also the fact of how well Costco pay its employees. Costco now has lower turnover rate and that saves them money in the hiring process but Target and Walmart are catching up and having more stores can prove beneficial in the end, even if they save money because of employee and customer
This means more profit for businesses because the rise on food and oil means more money in their wallet but less money in consumers’ wallets, “Similarly, when homeowners benefit from inflation because the price of their homes rises, while renters suffer because they are paying higher rent” (ch.8 p. 15). Hence government should step in to intervene in businesses, but it is a completely different story if we are running out of food and oil rather than just raising the price because they want to. When businesses are filling up their account with more money, but leaving their consumers with less money in their wallet there is a problem and it will hurt the supply and demand law. That being the case, government should be given the authority to regulate markets only to an extent to make sure the inflation level stays at a reasonable
On one way the paragraph makes sense and the second way the paragraph does not. Mostly the debate depended on the definition of value (and its connection to long period market period prices) because there were different definitions of the term. According to Bentham and Dugald Stewart, utility was used as “a portmanteau term to cover all the wants and desires” (7). Ricardo states that “utility was an absolutely essential precondition, but could not be a measure of value in exchange” (8), which were determined either by the scarcity or by the quantity of labor required to obtain commodities. The second way the paragraph read made it sound incoherent because utility cannot be the measure of value.
What do we know until now? We know that both the ticket resale market and the sneaker resale market work in a very similar way and that many brokers exist to clear the market. In addition, the sneaker resale market is more advantageous than the ticket resale market due to the fact that sneakers tend to rise in value over time while tickets lose most of its value once the event is over. We know that certain companies such as Nike or Adidas deliberately price their goods at a lower price for a reason. In addition resellers and the companies benefit off of each other.
