Read Poe’s, “The Cask of Amontillado” and at least three scholarly articles about the story. Write and submit a 2,000 word essay in which you cite the research in order to convince your reader of your understanding of the story.

The topic of your essay should be an argument proving that Monstresor has undergone a “transformation” in the 50 years since he murdered Fortunato and explaining why he underwent that transformation. (If you cannot agree that Montresor has changed, however, write an essay proving the opposite, that is, that Montresor did not undergo a transformation in the 50 years since the incident.)

Poe’s story is easy to find online. One of the best ways is to go the Google and type in The University of Virginia Library, Electronic Texts, The Cask of Amontillado. You will have your own reactions to the story; you will want to use those reactions along with three or four scholarly articles to present your own literary essay. You’ll provide in-text references and a works cited listing according to MLA guidelines. In addition to your own textbook, Owl Purdue online is a very good additional source of information about writing a research paper in the MLA or Modern Language Association’s standard format.

I only need week 5 

 

inal Project Scenario

You are an economist for the Vanda-Laye Corporation, which produces and distributes outdoor cooking supplies. The company has come under new ownership and management and will be undergoing changes in its product lines and operating structure. As an economist, your responsibilities include examining the market factors that affect success or failure of a product, including the supply and demand for the product, market conditions, and the behavior of competitors with similar products.

The new management has identified several possible investments for the coming year. It has asked you and your team to evaluate the possibilities and make a recommendation to the board of directors. Jorge has identified two mutually exclusive opportunities (Investment A)and two independent opportunities (Investment B) and assigned you the task of making a recommendation on the investments.

Investment A

Your company would like to increase its product lines. Two alternatives are available, a new line of outdoor smokers and a new line of outdoor grills. The two lines are mutually exclusive, meaning that only one of these investment alternatives can be selected. The projected cash flows and their respective probabilities for each alternative are given in the table. There are three possible levels of demand and their corresponding probabilities, which depend on the state of the economy.

Click here to download the table for Investment A.

The two alternatives carry equal risk and should be evaluated at the company’s cost of capital. The cost for the new smoker line will be $7,000,000. Also, the company has been guaranteed a buyer for the new line at the end of the fifth year. The buyer has agreed to purchase the new line for $7,900,000. The outdoor grill alternative will cost $3,987,000 and also has a guaranteed buyer, who has agreed to pay $4,000,000 at the end of the fifth year.

Investment B

Investment B involves two independent investment opportunities. The decisions on these two investment alternatives are also independent of Investment A. Investment B-1 involves a new packaging machine, which will eliminate the need for a local firm for packaging Vanda-Laye’s products. The cost of this machine will be $24,000, and the expected revenues from this opportunity are given in the table and are considered to be of average risk. Investment B-2 is the purchase of a new computer system that will allow the company to sell its products on the Internet worldwide. The cost of this new system will be $29,000, with the expected cash flows after taxes given in the table.

Click here to download the table for Investment B.

Jorge has asked you to provide detailed responses to the following:

  • Management of Vanda-Laye has determined that the capital structure of the company will involve 30% debt and 70% common equity. This structure will be used to finance all investments by the company. Currently, the company can sell new bonds at par, with a coupon rate of 7%. Any new common stock can be sold for $45, with a required return (or cost) of 15.57%. Using Microsoft Excel, calculate the company’s cost of capital to be used in the evaluation of possible investment projects.
  • For Investment A:
    • Using Microsoft Excel, create a decision tree. Indicate the various levels of demand and their respective probabilities. Also, include the calculations for the expected cash flows.
    • Calculate the expected NPV for each alternative. Explain the decision rules for making a selection between the two alternatives on the basis of the expected NPV.
    • Assuming the two alternatives are mutually exclusive, specify which alternative you would recommend to the company. Explain why.
    • If the two alternatives were independent of each other, specify which project you would select. Would you accept both projects if funding were available for both? Explain your answer.
  • For Investment B:
    • Using Microsoft Excel, calculate the NPV for each alternative.
    • Using the decision-making criteria for the NPV, specify which alternative you would select if the two alternatives were mutually exclusive. Explain your answer.
    • Given that the two alternatives are independent of each other, specify which investment you would select, if not both. Explain your answer.
    • Using Microsoft Excel, calculate the IRR for each investment.
    • Using the decision-making criteria for the IRR, specify which alternative you would prefer. Explain your answer.
    • If funding were available, specify whether you would select both investments. Why or why not?
    • Calculate the profitability index (PI) for the two investments. Which project is preferred?
    • Determine whether there is a ranking conflict present in terms of the IRR and the NPV. Explain your answer. If a conflict does exist, explain how you would resolve the situation.

Submission Details:

  • Compile a report including all your responses from Weeks 13and 5. Make sure your report reads as one report rather than three reports pasted together. Complete all revisions suggested by your instructor in previous weeks. Make sure all responses are complete and accurate, supported by references and documented examples. The report should be 10–15 pages in length and include an executive summary.
  • Name the spreadsheet as SU_MBA5004_W5_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.xls and your Microsoft Word document as SU_MBA5004_W5_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.doc.

Final

Provide answers to the four Final Exam questions using APA format. Submit your exam on schedule.

This final exam consists of four questions. Please answer them using APA format.

Two to three pages should be sufficient for each question.

  1. In his book, Rewarding Work: How to Restore Participating and Self-Support to Free Enterprise (Harvard University Press, 197), economist Edmund Phelps offers this plan to help the working poor: apply tax credits for “qualified employers” or hire disadvantaged people for “eligible jobs.” Evaluate this plan in terms of market incentives, one of the ten principles of economics, to work and current welfare programs. Is the Phelps’ plan an improvement over current government policies? Discuss.
  2. The availability of investment capital is critical for a market economy to grow. Explain how this investment capital is transformed into fixed capital goods, new technology, and cost reduction using new methods of production. Also, explain how interest rates impact the availability of investment capital.
  3. Your text, on page 629, lists three arguments for trade restrictions. Since economists do not favor trade restrictions, and this is a course in Managerial Economics, make the case as an economist against trade restrictions for these three items. Are there any arguments for trade restrictions that most economists would support? Discuss.
  4. Who was responsible for the global financial crisis of 2007-2009? Free-Market capitalism, government intervention, or a combination of both? Identify the causes of the crisis, the steps the private and public sector took to resolve it, and what leaders should do to keep it from happening again. Remember, banks are profit making firms who supply capital to suppliers of goods and services.

The paper should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Please include citations to support your ideas.

Your team has been chosen by the mayor to revamp the way human services are delivered in your city. You have been given an unlimited budgetand free reign to lease new facilities, create new programs and services, hire new people, and purchase new equipment to help the Human Services Department meet the demands of the 21st century, but you must provide persuasive evidence that these are justified.

 

To decide what recommendations you should make, first study Ch. 3 of the text. Make sure you have a good understanding of the following information:

 

·       The trends that predict the type of human services that will be needed in the future

·       Where and how human services are best delivered

 

To help you envision the kinds of changes and upgrades needed, review the following information, which describes how human services are currently handled in this city:

 

·       There is only one facility that provides counseling or psychiatric services, including both inpatient and outpatient care. It is located several miles outside the city, a decision that was made 75 years ago, with the idea that people with so-called mental problems were best kept away from the community. There is one administrative office in the downtown area of the city. Individuals must come to this office to apply for public assistance or, they can come to learn about available services. All paperwork is completed by hand and kept in file cabinets. Except for therapists at the psychiatric facility, employees work exclusively from this downtown office, so clients must travel to this location to keep appointments.

 

Review Ch. 3 of the text. This is the only resource you will need to complete this assignment.

Name your city. Be creative, as this is fiction.

Discuss each of the following questions with your team thoroughly:

 

·       What are the trends discussed in the reading that are likely to affect the types of services your city will need to provide in the future?

·       Based on the predicted needs that those trends indicate, what services should your city be prepared to offer? Remember, your budget is unlimited. Be as innovative and extravagant as you like.

·       Where and how would the services be delivered?

·       How could the department improve its use of technology to benefit clients and employees?

 

Write a 700- to 1,050-word report to the mayor, using the ideas from your team discussion that describes your recommendations. Explain the rationale for your recommendations, which must be supported by citations from the text. Remember to include a completereference in APA format at the end of your report.

 

Additional requirements:

 

·       Your report must be so as to be clear, direct, and concise.

·       Organize the report well. Your content should flow in a logical sequence. Useheadings to introduce each new main idea. 

·       Spelling and grammar must be correct, including proper punctuation of sentences. A lack of professionalism could sink the mayor’s trust in you and cause him to revoke your budget.

·       While not required, you are welcome to add illustrations, diagrams, maps, or photos to add interest and visual appeal. Have fun with the assignment, as you will never have an unlimited budget again.

inal Project Scenario

You are an economist for the Vanda-Laye Corporation, which produces and distributes outdoor cooking supplies. The company has come under new ownership and management and will be undergoing changes in its product lines and operating structure. As an economist, your responsibilities include examining the market factors that affect success or failure of a product, including the supply and demand for the product, market conditions, and the behavior of competitors with similar products.

The new management has identified several possible investments for the coming year. It has asked you and your team to evaluate the possibilities and make a recommendation to the board of directors. Jorge has identified two mutually exclusive opportunities (Investment A)and two independent opportunities (Investment B) and assigned you the task of making a recommendation on the investments.

Investment A

Your company would like to increase its product lines. Two alternatives are available, a new line of outdoor smokers and a new line of outdoor grills. The two lines are mutually exclusive, meaning that only one of these investment alternatives can be selected. The projected cash flows and their respective probabilities for each alternative are given in the table. There are three possible levels of demand and their corresponding probabilities, which depend on the state of the economy.

Click here to download the table for Investment A.

The two alternatives carry equal risk and should be evaluated at the company’s cost of capital. The cost for the new smoker line will be $7,000,000. Also, the company has been guaranteed a buyer for the new line at the end of the fifth year. The buyer has agreed to purchase the new line for $7,900,000. The outdoor grill alternative will cost $3,987,000 and also has a guaranteed buyer, who has agreed to pay $4,000,000 at the end of the fifth year.

Investment B

Investment B involves two independent investment opportunities. The decisions on these two investment alternatives are also independent of Investment A. Investment B-1 involves a new packaging machine, which will eliminate the need for a local firm for packaging Vanda-Laye’s products. The cost of this machine will be $24,000, and the expected revenues from this opportunity are given in the table and are considered to be of average risk. Investment B-2 is the purchase of a new computer system that will allow the company to sell its products on the Internet worldwide. The cost of this new system will be $29,000, with the expected cash flows after taxes given in the table.

Click here to download the table for Investment B.

Jorge has asked you to provide detailed responses to the following:

  • Management of Vanda-Laye has determined that the capital structure of the company will involve 30% debt and 70% common equity. This structure will be used to finance all investments by the company. Currently, the company can sell new bonds at par, with a coupon rate of 7%. Any new common stock can be sold for $45, with a required return (or cost) of 15.57%. Using Microsoft Excel, calculate the company’s cost of capital to be used in the evaluation of possible investment projects.
  • For Investment A:
    • Using Microsoft Excel, create a decision tree. Indicate the various levels of demand and their respective probabilities. Also, include the calculations for the expected cash flows.
    • Calculate the expected NPV for each alternative. Explain the decision rules for making a selection between the two alternatives on the basis of the expected NPV.
    • Assuming the two alternatives are mutually exclusive, specify which alternative you would recommend to the company. Explain why.
    • If the two alternatives were independent of each other, specify which project you would select. Would you accept both projects if funding were available for both? Explain your answer.
  • For Investment B:
    • Using Microsoft Excel, calculate the NPV for each alternative.
    • Using the decision-making criteria for the NPV, specify which alternative you would select if the two alternatives were mutually exclusive. Explain your answer.
    • Given that the two alternatives are independent of each other, specify which investment you would select, if not both. Explain your answer.
    • Using Microsoft Excel, calculate the IRR for each investment.
    • Using the decision-making criteria for the IRR, specify which alternative you would prefer. Explain your answer.
    • If funding were available, specify whether you would select both investments. Why or why not?
    • Calculate the profitability index (PI) for the two investments. Which project is preferred?
    • Determine whether there is a ranking conflict present in terms of the IRR and the NPV. Explain your answer. If a conflict does exist, explain how you would resolve the situation.

Submission Details:

  • Compile a report including all your responses from Weeks 13and 5. Make sure your report reads as one report rather than three reports pasted together. Complete all revisions suggested by your instructor in previous weeks. Make sure all responses are complete and accurate, supported by references and documented examples. The report should be 10–15 pages in length and include an executive summary.
  • Name the spreadsheet as SU_MBA5004_W5_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.xls and your Microsoft Word document as SU_MBA5004_W5_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.doc.

    your final exam – be sure you are reading the questions carefully.  It’s easy to get off topic or on a roll about something you are passionate about and not stick to the question asked.  Every semester I have to give a low grade to two or three students who are passionate about one of the questions on your final and write a very lengthy answer that is not what the question ask.  Be careful – read the question – only answer the question or questions asked.

Final

Provide answers to the four Final Exam questions using APA format. Submit your exam on schedule.

This final exam consists of four questions. Please answer them using APA format.

Two to three pages should be sufficient for each question.

  1. In his book, Rewarding Work: How to Restore Participating and Self-Support to Free Enterprise (Harvard University Press, 197), economist Edmund Phelps offers this plan to help the working poor: apply tax credits for “qualified employers” or hire disadvantaged people for “eligible jobs.” Evaluate this plan in terms of market incentives, one of the ten principles of economics, to work and current welfare programs. Is the Phelps’ plan an improvement over current government policies? Discuss.
  2. The availability of investment capital is critical for a market economy to grow. Explain how this investment capital is transformed into fixed capital goods, new technology, and cost reduction using new methods of production. Also, explain how interest rates impact the availability of investment capital.
  3. Your text, on page 629, lists three arguments for trade restrictions. Since economists do not favor trade restrictions, and this is a course in Managerial Economics, make the case as an economist against trade restrictions for these three items. Are there any arguments for trade restrictions that most economists would support? Discuss.
  4. Who was responsible for the global financial crisis of 2007-2009? Free-Market capitalism, government intervention, or a combination of both? Identify the causes of the crisis, the steps the private and public sector took to resolve it, and what leaders should do to keep it from happening again. Remember, banks are profit making firms who supply capital to suppliers of goods and services.

The paper should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Please include citations to support your ideas.

Your team has been chosen by the mayor to revamp the way human services are delivered in your city. You have been given an unlimited budgetand free reign to lease new facilities, create new programs and services, hire new people, and purchase new equipment to help the Human Services Department meet the demands of the 21st century, but you must provide persuasive evidence that these are justified.

 

To decide what recommendations you should make, first study Ch. 3 of the text. Make sure you have a good understanding of the following information:

 

·       The trends that predict the type of human services that will be needed in the future

·       Where and how human services are best delivered

 

To help you envision the kinds of changes and upgrades needed, review the following information, which describes how human services are currently handled in this city:

 

·       There is only one facility that provides counseling or psychiatric services, including both inpatient and outpatient care. It is located several miles outside the city, a decision that was made 75 years ago, with the idea that people with so-called mental problems were best kept away from the community. There is one administrative office in the downtown area of the city. Individuals must come to this office to apply for public assistance or, they can come to learn about available services. All paperwork is completed by hand and kept in file cabinets. Except for therapists at the psychiatric facility, employees work exclusively from this downtown office, so clients must travel to this location to keep appointments.

 

Review Ch. 3 of the text. This is the only resource you will need to complete this assignment.

Name your city. Be creative, as this is fiction.

Discuss each of the following questions with your team thoroughly:

 

·       What are the trends discussed in the reading that are likely to affect the types of services your city will need to provide in the future?

·       Based on the predicted needs that those trends indicate, what services should your city be prepared to offer? Remember, your budget is unlimited. Be as innovative and extravagant as you like.

·       Where and how would the services be delivered?

·       How could the department improve its use of technology to benefit clients and employees?

 

Write a 700- to 1,050-word report to the mayor, using the ideas from your team discussion that describes your recommendations. Explain the rationale for your recommendations, which must be supported by citations from the text. Remember to include a completereference in APA format at the end of your report.

 

Additional requirements:

 

·       Your report must be so as to be clear, direct, and concise.

·       Organize the report well. Your content should flow in a logical sequence. Useheadings to introduce each new main idea. 

·       Spelling and grammar must be correct, including proper punctuation of sentences. A lack of professionalism could sink the mayor’s trust in you and cause him to revoke your budget.

·       While not required, you are welcome to add illustrations, diagrams, maps, or photos to add interest and visual appeal. Have fun with the assignment, as you will never have an unlimited budget again.
