or decrease demand based on the level of spending AND the spending multiplier. The spending multiplier can be expressed mathematically as:
Spending Multiplier = 1 / (1 – MPC) in which
MPC is the “marginal propensity to consume.”
Keynesian economics is based on the view that lower income brackets have higher MPC, while higher income earners have lower MPC. Accordingly, the transfer of income and wealth to lower income earners will transfer into increased economic growth because every dollar of transfer payments in theory will have a higher multiplier effect. The increase or decrease of “taxes-and-spending” should accelerate [or decelerate] economic growth depending on how it is

described in the case study, Former Economic Advisor to the President, Kathy Lee’s advice is not the right approach to stimulate the economy and return to full employment. While raising taxes and reducing government spending could correct the budget deficit, Contractionary activities such as raising taxes and reducing government spending will decrease aggregate demand instead of increasing it which is needed in the case study presented.

There has been widespread praise and critique of neo-liberal policies and their effect on the international economy, particularly with respect to widening inequality, suppression of developing economies and contribution to financial crisis due to destabilizing capital flows. This paper will contrast the implied positive effects of neo-liberalism from a Keynesian perspective against a Marxist analysis which suggests such economic liberalism merely changes the time intervals and severity of inevitable boom and bust cycles of capitalism and as such makes no permanent progression in the global economy.

economy which includes things like unemployment rate, national income, rate of growth, gross domestic product, inflation, and price levels. There are also two main schools of thought in economics. The first is classical, and they thought that when there was a problem that the solution should be aimed to fix it in the long run. Keynesian economists thought that solutions should be geared towards fixing them in the short run. Classical economics also believes in the theory of the invisible hand. This theory says that imperfections in the economy will fix themselves automatically. Keynesian economics strongly disagrees with this because they feel that price adjustments are the best way to fix

industries within the UK were nationalised and they needed the production of goods to be at a high rate in order to help the economy grow. In the 18th century the UK was one of the world’s most productive countries, it had a high output and it was one of the world’s most developed countries too. Also because this was before the time of Keynes, his views had not been presented to the world so people were less likely to be considering such schools of thought. The Keynesian view would have led to more governmental intervention to raise wages so that people would’ve had a better standard of living, however this was not able to occur.
In conclusion I think that we can see a great correlation between: the 18th century economy and the state of its labour market; and the classical view of economics and how they thought that wages would react to the changes in the supply and demand for labour. This is mainly due to the government’s minimal input, the lack of a minimum wage and the fact that everyone’s skill set was near enough the same.

instability is considered discouraging for investment and hence also has an adverse bearing on the growth of the economy in the long run. And this very fact gives impetus to monetary policies which seek to usher in and sustain price stability to reduce uncertainties in decision making, which is crucial for economic growth.
In the Keynesian model of AD-AS, the short-run AS curve is upwardly sloping meaning any shift in AD curve due to increased demand would increase the price as well as output implying a positive relation between inflation and growth in the short-term. Under this model, there is a trade-off between inflation and output in the short-run but no such link in the long run

unemployment rate falls it comes to the cost of high inflation and visa versa. It supports the two Keynesian theories of inflation - cost push and demand-pull. Before the 1970’s these were classified as the reasons of why inflation occurred. Briefly, the cost push theory stated that falling unemployment increased the power of trade unions, meaning that that there was a higher push for wages, increasing faster than output. The demand-pull theory states that a falling unemployment rate is associated with excess demand (too much money chasing too few goods) and therefore wages increase leading to inflation.(Assumption made that an increasing wage rate leads to an increase in inflation rate

Physician-assisted suicide should be at one's discretion. “Assisted Suicide, also called Voluntary Euthanasia, is currently a contentious issue in many countries. Because Euthanasia is legal in a few modern democracies: the Netherlands, Belgium, and Switzerland.

Evangelism in the early church was based of off Jesus Christ’s example. Now Jesus evangelized differently, many people, including his disciples were confused at they way he did things. The disciples did not prioritize the spiritual needs of others like Jesus did. In the case of the Samaritan women, Jesus stepped out of His comfort zone and took the initiative to start the conversation with her. He also broke barriers and turned the conversation to spiritual matters. In this example, Jesus moved from the physical water to her need for the living water. He would boldly and wisely address the issue of sin and refused to be sidetracked. Comparing with Jesus, the disciples struggled with

Ryanair became in 2009 the airline company which carry the most passengers in Europe. That is the result of its strategy which is based on a ‘no frills’ service in order to offer the lower prices. The business model of Ryanair is different from the classic carriers’ in the way that 20% of its revenue is generated from ancillary revenue, such as its “buy on board” program or extra fees for luggage. As we have seen above, the airline industry is very dynamic, and the apparition of alliances within the market forces Ryanair to stay competitive in its environment.
