  1. 1. Prepared by: Team 1Michele, Lofton , Misty, and Liana
  2. 2. The current condition of theeconomy, in our Option:  Possibly critical  America has an huge deficit. [http://zfacts.com/p/461.html ]National Debt Clock  Our team believes the economy is coming back slowly.  As a result some our teams family situations are changing in positive ways. While others are seeking wealth elsewhere.  Lofton’s dad is in real-estate and seems to have more work these days.  Michele’s family who lost her government job several years ago has been looking the last four years is now getting calls from recruiters for good paying jobs instead of small businesses who were not able to pay her much.  Another part of Michele’s family made 1 million last year as Sub-Contractors but are leaving to morocco for Contracts in the desert of North Africa, they are not getting rich here even handling that type of money.
  3. 3. WHAT THE ECONOMY IS DOING TODAY The Economy is trying to recover, as they analysts say it is turning around slowly. HEADLINES: When the president entered office on Jan. 20, 2009, the economy was issue No. 1. It still is today. Heres a look at where the economy stood then and whats changed since. [http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2012/news/economy/1206 /gallery.Obama-economy/index.html?iid=SF_E_Highlight] Consumer Confidence Climbing. Growth up. Expansion up. No inflation pressures in the Feds eyes. [http://economistsview.typepad.com/timduy/ ]
  4. 4. What is an economic indicator:"Business Indicators“  statistic about the economy.  Covers selected quarterly data and offers a One application of economic indicators is the study of business cycles.  used to compare to past quarters and years in in the economy.
  5. 5. Why are Economic Indicators Important?  major shift and trends  understanding outcomes of problematic events, seeing the unknown.  Put ting numerical meaningful values. The only way to see for a fact documented proof of: What is going on, what is gong tot happen, this shows our expectations, makes order out of chaos. We know exactly how many, the probability of events.  To try to describe the operations in the role of the aggregate,. Whether to bet on this or that outcome, Measure frequencies, challenge our intuitions, View information historically, to put into context and subtext, ect. See [www.pedictwise.com ] .  To Speculate, more accurate than the polls or the news.[ www.makingsence.com] Paul Solomon.  Every week there are dozens of economic surveys and indicators released. In the past, only professionals and economists had the advantage in receiving this type of data in a timely fashion. Fortunately, the internet has changed this giving everyone access. Economic indicators can have a huge impact on the market; therefore, knowing how to interpret and analyze them is important for all investors.  Markets use information to set prices. Investors use all the information at their disposal to make decisions. If a set of economic indicators suggest that the economy is going to do better or worse in the future than they had previously expected, they may decide to change their investing strategy.

  6. 6. How do indicators help policy makers makedecisions? All four indices are aggregated to a “Policy Performance Index”, PPI, and presented as a line chart organized in concentric graphs. • the size of each segment of the graphs reflect the importance (the “weight”) of the issues for politics or business; each segment reflects the judgment of current policy performance on a scale, to see the good and the bad. Read more: [http://esl.jrc.it/envind/idm/idm_e_09.htm] Certainly, the decision of the voter will not be taken on the basis of indicators alone. Many other factors play a role. As they reveal the success or failure of policy makers decisions. There is no causal link between policy decisions or company will take. Indicators instead punish bad decisions, and reward good ones. Decisions come that come along with the indicators. Pitfalls: If the media misuses GDP as a measure of success; then it is possible any decision that increases GDP is viewed as “good”, even if it could decrease real welfare. We can look at our four indicators in business and compare their similarities and differences.
  7. 7. How do they work with the CircularFlow Model?  A visual model of the economy that illustrates how households and businesses interact through markets for products and markets for resources. The top half, represents product markets: Households interact with business firms to supply labor, for income, and use their incomes to buy their goods and services. The first interaction occurs in markets for resources, second occurs in markets for products. [http://econperspectives.blogspot.com/2008/04/circular-flow- diagram.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circular_flow_of_income[ Households allow Financial sector “Businesses” to hold savings. Pay tax (direct & indirect) to the Government. [http://wiki.answers.com/Q/In_the_circular_flow_of_the_economy_what _do_households_do [ http://books.google.com/books?id=TllDu7ibouwC&pg=PA105&lpg=PA105 &dq=capacity+utilization+and+circular+flow+model.&source=bl&ots=cOz ferUWoX&sig=Y9nmbURZgTfwhZHZFb8vfJAj88k&hl=en&sa=X&ei=1lF8U J7qIIPo9ASfyIDwDg&ved=0CB0Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=capacity%20uti lization%20and%20circular%20flow%20model.&f=false
  8. 8. How do they work with Aggregate Supply andAggregate Demand Models?  Aggregate demand and supply measure the total demand and supply of goods and services across an entire economy.  Aggregate demand simply means spending — spending by households, businesses and governments for consumption goods and services or investments in structures, machinery and equipment. finding some way to create jobs and stimulate growth. But the truth is that there really isn’t much we can do. The only policy that will really help is an increase in aggregate demand. At the moment, businesses don’t need to invest because their biggest problem is a lack of consumer demand.  Nonfinancial businesses are now sitting on close to $2 trillion in liquid assets that could be invested immediately if there was an increase in sales, and banks have $1.5 trillion of excess reserves that could be lent as well.  Fiscal policy could raise velocity and growth by getting money moving throughout the economy. But since that is not feasible, the Fed is the only game in town. Joseph Gagnon, a former Fed economist, says that it should immediately increase the money supply by $2 trillion and promise to keep increasing it until the economy has turned around. The right policy can be debated, but the important thing is for policy makers to stop obsessing about debt and focus instead on raising aggregate demand.  Read More: [http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/08/16/its-the-aggregate-demand-stupid/ ]  Under aggregate analysis, when aggregate demand rises faster than aggregate supply, inflation rises. Lagging aggregate demand, meanwhile, may be a sign of an economic recession. [http://www.ehow.com/facts_5312128_aggregate-economic-analysis.html]

  13. 13. What makes up the capacity utilization indicator? The capacity utilization rate measures the proportion of plant and equipment used in production by the manufacturing, mining, electric and gas utilizes industries. Used as an indicator of inflation, especially when it consistently climbs above the 84% level. When factories operate this close to full capacity, companies are more likely to raise prices.  Capacity utilization also reveals employment trends. Factories tend to hire more people or to have employees work more overtime hours when production is at peak levels.  A businesses plant and equipment do effect short run fluctuations in demand and they can be used at different capacity utilizations. For maximum profits.  Read more here: [http://info.wsj.com/classroom/Indicators/def.data.html]

  16. 16. Revision of Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization The Federal Reserve Board plans to issue its annual revision to the index of industrial production (IP) and the related measures of capacity utilization at the end of March 2013. The revised IP indexes will incorporate detailed data from the 2011 Annual Survey of Manufactures, by the U.S. Census. Annual data from the U.S. Geological Survey regarding metallic and nonmetallic minerals (except fuels) for 2011 will also be incorporated. The update will include revisions to the monthly indicator (either product data or input data) and to seasonal factors for each industry. In addition, the estimation methods for some series may be changed. Any modifications to the methods for estimating the output of an industry will affect the index from 1972 to the present.
  17. 17. How reliable is the capacity utilization indicator?  A reliable indicator of Inflation.  Depends on the extent of the variation of the system.  I is A Time Cost Trade off.
  18. 18. What is the significance of the capacity utilization indicator concerning theeconomys position?  define current approaches in an ever changing world market. (TALKING POINTS)  compare to alternative methods  of utilization and to different countries. (TALKING POINTS)  resource is Exploited or over-exploited.  Need to know if a business / For Example: Our fishing industry.  Leading indicator  : meaning it usually changes before the economy as a whole changes.[1] They are therefore useful as short-term predictors of the economy.
  19. 19.  By itself, what does the capacity utilization indicator tell your team about what the economy is doing? Growing, stagnating, or declining in the long term. DECLININGRECESSION Like Flocculating,  lack of demand.  Plenty of supply.  Why war decrease our business – sends our resources away.  Measuring domestic output.  Know economic pulse- measure and explain production is at present level (short term). And measuring GDP. Slope of a line how quickly something changes. Independent variable cause or source. Dependant variable outcome or effect. Calc slop of the line y= mx+ b. Or measure productivity. CAUSES: Transportation, War, Politics, Money Supply.
  20. 20. Describe the activity, according to the data your team gathered, of this capacityutilization indicator.  Example: Industrial production fell 1.2 percent in August after having risen 0.5 percent in July. Hurricane Isaac IN 2011  restrained output in the Gulf Coast region at the end of August, reducing the rate of change in total industrial production by an estimated 0.3 percentage point. Manufacturing output decreased 0.7 percent in August after having risen 0.4 percent in both June and July.  Precautionary shutdowns of oil and gas rigs in the Gulf of Mexico in advance of the hurricane contributed to a drop of 1.8 percent in the output of mines for August.  WHICH Led r:The output of utilities declined 3.6 percent. At 96.8 percent of its 2007 average, total industrial production in August was 2.8 percent above its year-earlier level.  Therfore Capacity utilization for total industry moved down 1.0 percentage point to 78.2 percent, a rate 2.1 percentage points below its long-run (1972-- 2011) average. [http://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/g17/current/ ]
  21. 21. Notes: Capacity Utilization is up for a second month, pushing past analysts expectations to stand atthe highest level in more than five years, according to the UMich/Reuters sentiment index; the gaugerose to 83.1, the highest level since September 2007. [http://www.marketwatch.com/economy-politics [(Market Watch) — Producer prices climbed sharply in September for the second month as gasolineprices jumped, Producer prices rose 1.1% in September after an increase of 1.7% in August, the LaborDepartment said. The core wholesale price index, which excludes food and energy prices, was flat inSeptember after a 0.2% gain in the prior month. Economists surveyed by Market Watch had expecteda 1.0% rise in the headline PPI and a 0.2% increase in the core rate. [See Market Watchscomprehensive economic calendar. ]The gain in producer prices, tracking the level of inflation at the wholesale level, was due tocontinued higher energy costs — particularly gasoline. Energy prices advanced 4.7% in Septemberafter having risen 6.4% in August. A 9.8% gain in gasoline prices accounted for more than 80% of theSeptember gain, the Labor Department said.Food prices rose 0.2% in September, for the fourth consecutive increase. Analysts said the impact ofthe severe drought in the Midwest is slowly filtering up the production chain. [Read the fullgovernment report. ]Treasury prices [/quotes/zigman/4868283/delayed 10_YEAR 0.00% ]turned up modestly and thedollar [/quotes/zigman/1652083 DXY -0.14% ]edged lower after the report was released. In the coreprice index, higher prices for light motor trucks were offset by declining prices for communicationsequipment.Compared with a year ago, the producer price index is up 2.1%, the highest level since March. Coreprices are up 2.3% over the past 12 months. [http://www.marketwatch.com/economy-politics ]The economy AT A GLANCE
  22. 22. What is the significance of the indicator concerning the economys position? Lead, Lag or coincident? Leading indicators are indicators that usually change before the economy as a whole changes.[1] They are therefore useful as short-term predictors of the economy. Stock market returns are a leading indicator: the stock market usually begins to decline before the economy as a whole declines and usually begins to improve before the general economy begins to recover from a slump. Other leading indicators include the index of consumer expectations, building permits, and the money supply.[citation needed] The Conference Board publishes a composite Leading Economic Index consisting of ten indicators designed to predict activity in the U. S. economy six to nine months in future. Lagging indicators are indicators that usually change after the economy as a whole does. Coincident indicators change at approximately the same time as the whole economy, thereby providing information about the current state of the economy. There are many coincident economic indicators, such as Gross Domestic Product, industrial production, personal income and retail sales. A coincident index may be used to identify, after the fact, the dates of peaks and troughs in the business cycle.[2]There are four economic statistics comprising the Index of Coincident Economic Indicators:[citation needed] Number of employees on non-agricultural payrolls Personal income less transfer payments Industrial production Manufacturing and trade sale See following for details http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_indicator
  23. 23. By itself, what does the indicator tell your team about whatthe economy is doing?  The economy started crashing about 2004 it started noticeably getting in trouble numbers became available. About 2010 it started to slowly climb out – America eliminate the middle class. Middle class keeps balance. France they got real poor or real rich no middle class. Socialism makes poor poorer like a 3rd world country. We must learn to embrace the middle class it is going to be to deep of a dive. Crime goes up more. Haves and have nots hungry now. Steve jobs home was unlocked when alive they robed him. They walked right in you think he would understand because when our parents were young you cant leave now economy this way. Money not going to far. 3 dollar bead loaf. If people had notice food up salaries not keeping up with groceries. Go back 2 weeks later up 1 dollar but no raise at work. I have to buy and not prosper now. Product up and decreasing volume now. Now 123 pack now 8 pack still charging for 12. they getting richer we getting poorer. You must have a plan you must have a plan you will spend it all up. Pay into 401k wait to receive money. 10 20 yrs ago is not prospering now. Sams fill up car loaded down. Now a few bags. People of power will get richer. Leaders stop bickering power struggle dangerous. Highways falling apart. Put them to work. Political games suffer. Meet everyday. Put people to work. Drain systems in Jacksonville all stopped up floods. 3 day rain we flooded now. No workers gutting grass, clearing pipes ect. People do need help. Wal-Mart will keep you poor to not give benefits no full time work. Work at Wal-Mart be on Medicaid now. They control temp in store from Arkansas in all store, inefficient cant turn on air selfs keeping control. Millions earned low pay. Wal-Mart tried to hide the no insurance no benefits jobs. They will hold those 2hrs back. N reason to lack in this world plenty of resources. Share one hand wash another, give up some of the power. President 1 million dollars paid salary or so; but spent millions to get job because it is for the power. Commercial to get a job for 1 mill. Spent it is a mess, mess, mess.
