econometrics literature review

literature review about the loan growth in both Germany and KSA and how did it affect on the business, banks and the economy as a whole (2017) + the saving and borrowing in (KSA  and Germany) for business purposes or farm purposes+ the saving and borrowing form business institutions in both (KSA and Germany)

Capital budgeting

The assignment involves analyzing the project’s cash inflows and outflows to determine whether to accept or reject a project.  The net present value method considers the differences in the timing of future cash flows over the year. To answer this protect (and make it simple,) you need to use just one year of data  (income, and cost),  and use the growth rate to calculate the future values (income, or cost).  For example, if the revenue in 2019 is $100 and growing at 10%, then the next year revenue is $110, and the following years are,  121, and 132, ….

To measure which project to choose, please calculate the NPV and select the project with the highest value. You are free you use any assumption if they appropriate.

Question: Identify a film or television show which made good use of transmedia marketing. Analyse the transmedia campaign in terms of the target audience(s), the key creative strategies and consider how this campaign can be of use to other film/ TV marketers when thinking of developing transmedia campaigns. Comment specifically on how independent producers with limited resources could learn from the campaign.

Must include: bibliography and theoretical support when giving an argument

Architectural Responses

There are 4 total responses 300 words each.  The instruction is to create a response while connecting 3 terms/names for each one using the texts provided.  The response is generally open but should be focused on the 2nd term.

First terms/names are: Adolf Loos – Monument – Bauhouse (Reading to be used is 02Foster.pdf and pages are 105-115)

Second terms/names:  Charles-douard Jeanneret (Le Corbusier) – Monument – Le Corbusier (in this one both first and last terms/names are of the same person, Le Corbusier is the nickname of Edouard Jeanneret, so technically this is only 2 terms.  The reading for this one is 03Corbusier.pdf, no specific pages, ctrl+F on the pdf to find the term monument, there is a lot of info on it.)

Third: El Lissitzky – Axonometry – White on White.  (White on white is a movement that Malevich started and El Lessitzky wrote a lot about it as well as Axonometry and perspective.  Reading is 05Lissitzky no specific pages, the reading is generally about that for the most part.)

Fourth: Walter Benjamin – Originality/Creativity – Photography.  (Reading for this one is 03Benjamin.pdf, same as the one before this reading talks a lot about “Creativity/Originality” so the point would be to make connections between Photography and Creativity.)

Not sure if its needed but here is some background knowledge about this assignment; I was given about 10 terms per column, there are total of 3 columns hence the 3 terms, the idea was to pick one from each creating a connection based on internet research and the readings for these 3 terms.

Please make sure that nothing is plagiarized, and sources are tagged!

Here is a quick example which isn’t based on anything just off the top of my head so im not sure if its true:  Adolf Loos viewed monuments as something from the year of 7777 to 8888 and he argued that these should not be destroyed in wars.  The bombers should seize fire if they get close to these because these monuments have created the culture as we know today.  The creation of Bauhouse was similar.  The architect by the name of SOMEONE made this and it was agreed by the Something organization that it should stand and be a no man land in a war.  In the book called “dajkjkl” the author talks about… ETC…

Hope that helps to clear it up,
Thank you so much!

Any topic (writer’s choice)

The paper should have a clear introduction, a main body (with multiple sections) and a conclusion. In the introduction, you must clearly state your  research question. The total number of words excludes references.

Focus on the benefits of the belt and road initiative and also on how it can increase China’s geopolitical power. Explain the belt and road initiatives affect on Europe and Africa mainly.
Research question will be what is the extent of the belt and road initiative on world.

use the following references and 5 more if possible

Business

Question 1:

As seen during our class, the WBS can be a very powerful tool to define clearly what is the scope of your project.

I propose you to choose a real and simple project from your professional or personal life and perform the following activities:
Define what is your project (it can be anything you want) and what is the product, service or result expected from it
Document the requirements of the product or service created by your project
Then represent the entire scope of your project work in a WBS (Work breakdown Structure). Make your WBS go down as many levels as you consider you need in order to be able to measure and control your project.
Create a Gantt chart in Excel or MS Project (or equivalent software) for your project.

Question 2:

This homework consists of two elasticity exercises and four questions related to the case study named United Cereal: Lora Brills Euroband Challenge.(Attached case)

Elasticity Exercises: Questions 1 and 2

1.  Cross-Elasticity Exercise:

Suppose that when the price of a burger decreases from $2.00 to $1.75 and other things remain the same, the quantity demanded of burgers increases from 200 an hour to 400 an hour and the quantity demanded of pizza decreases from 400 an hour to 200 an hour. At the same time, the quantity demanded of soda increases from 150 an hour to 300 an hour.

  1a.Calculate the cross elasticity of demand for soda with respect to burgers. (0.5 points)

1b.  Are soda and burgers substitutes or complements? Why? (0.25 points)

passing the torch

Please use the article “Passing the Torch” to answer the following questions.

The Ku Klux Klan was/is a white supremacist organization prominent in the 1920s that wears white hoods and robes and burns cross to visibly mark their explicitly racist mission. The Klan is not considered “mainstream” but rather an extremist organization with out-of-touch values that do not represent America’s tolerance for diversity and pluralism. The common understanding is that the Klan is an embarrassing remnant of a past now long gone, even if there are a few chapters of the Klan still organizing across the United States.

Does the author of “Pass the Torch” believe that it is strategic to label the U.S. political entity known as the Tea Party, which promotes a lot of the same Ku Klux Klan virtues of white Protestant nationalism, as a continuation of the more visible hooded/robed Ku Klux Klan?
Why or why not?
