The Law of One Price

Definition
The Law of One Price indicates that between any two markets, the difference in prices should not exceed the cost of transport and commercialization
Law of one Price: Evidence. (2011). The Annals of Regional Science, 47(2), 329-351.

Summary

This article goes through some controversy around the Spanish Wheat market in South and Central America. It goes through the law of one price and how people were trying to let certain countries get wheat from them for a cheaper price than another country. The law of One Price is there so that you cannot help hinder another country by only raising the prices to them or visa versa with cheaper prices.

Discussion

The Law of One Price is something that I had no clue existed until I started this course. It is a huge deal to the world economy and it really does make a lot of sense when you take a step back and evaluate it all. The world is always out to hurt people it seems and this is one way we can help make it a more even playing ground for everyone. This “Law of One Price” could even be used to discuss equality in any market for anything really. There should be no reason that someone else gets special treatment just because of which he or she is or what they might believe in. This should almost be considered a natural right in my opinion to be able to buy something for the same price that the other guy gets to buy it for.

Board

...Facilitate/Preside Over Meetings • Chairmen are required to "chair," or facilitate and preside over, company board meetings. More specifically, a chairman is expected to determine the agenda of the meeting at hand, encourage discussion and participation from all directors and board members and relay pertinent information regarding current events within or pertaining to the company. A chairman is also expected to point issue discussions and debates toward a consensus stance, upon which the majority of the board agree, and which can therefore be acted upon for the expected benefit of the company or organization. Organizing The Board • For productive meetings to take place, the board in question needs to consist of an effective balance of members in regards to the board members' ages, work experience and personalities. This organizational or compositional process is ongoing; as a person carries on in their role of chairman, they will find that board members will either leave of their own volition or will need to be replaced. Additionally, a chairman needs to involve directors already on the board to mentor new directors who are new to their position. • Spokesperson/Representative • Depending on the company or organization, the scope and frequency of public relations duties for a chairman may range from practically nonexistent to major responsibility. The spokesperson responsibilities of a chairman generally involve relaying the mission statement of the company or......

Phase 3 Discussion Board

...Phase 3 Discussion Board EM208-1201A-08 Web Development I Colorado Technical University The software tool I chosen for this discussion is FrontPage2003. This website design tool not only allows you to design but also manage your files. You can add delete and rename as well as move files around. It allows you to fix problems with broken hyperlinks by running special reports. It will also allow you to publish a Web Site. Unlike other Website creation tools FrontPage stores all the files in hidden folders called metadata. This information allows FrontPage to function. They are hidden so they cannot be deleted or changed by accident. When Windows Explorer is set up to show hidden files you can see the metadata folders. There are two major types of folders one named _vti_cnf. This folder contains information about every file including the links to other files. The other file is _vti_pvt folder that contains all the configuration information for the web site its sub sites and the permissions information. One of the major advantages to using FrontPage is its ability to work in conjunction with other Microsoft products like EXCEL, POWERPOINT, and Word. FrontPage is great for web sites using a lot of text. It does a little bit of everything because it has embedded HTML editors. The major advantage of Microsoft FrontPage is found in the site management tools. You can do things like verify links and replace content easily, especially helpful when managing large websites.

Feeding Tube Misplacement An 85-year-old man died in a local hospital after a nurse tried to change his feeding tube. The nurse did not check the chart to find that the man already had a tube put in him two days before this, thus, when the first tube was taken out, the stomach moved back to where it originally rests. Once the nurse put the new tube in, it did not go in the patient’s stomach; therefore, when the feeding liquids were put into the tube, it went into his abdominal cavity instead of his stomach, which led to a large infection, and death. http://www.sandiegoaccidentinjurylawyer.com/lawyer-attorney-1279341.html 3.

Art Appreciation Unit 3 Discussion Board

...Art Appreciation Unit 3 Discussion Board American Intercontinental University HUMA205 June 24, 2013 Michelangelo Buonarroti and Leonardo da Vinci were considered masters of the arts. Both men communicated their visions through their works or masterpieces. I will attempt to compare and contrast two works of art, one by Michelangelo and the other by Leonardo. The masterpiece I chose from Michelangelo Buonarroti is The Last Judgment. This work was painted on the alter wall of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. Michelangelo started this work in 1508 and finished in 1512. (Art and the Bible, nd) It represents the second coming of Christ and the final judgment of God. The picture presents Christ as judge and condemns everyone on his left to eternal fire, as he raises those on his right to heaven to be with the saints and angels. The picture radiates out from the center figure of Christ. Originally all the people were painted naked, but after quite a bit of controversy they were painted over with veils and loincloths. The Last Judgment is monochromatic and flesh tones and sky colors dominate the work. Yellow, orange, green and blue are scattered throughout the painting. Michelangelo focuses on the action of human creatures quite different than Leonardo’s emphasis on perspective such as birds in flight. His art enhances the naturalism and he had a great skill at portraying profound emotions that make this painting striking. The painting is sort of......

...Jim O’Brien Phase 3 Discussion Board – Project Risk Management MPM434-1204A-02 Contracts and Procurement Professor Christian Cheney No matter the size of a project, there are going to be risks associated with the project. Identifying risks early in a project can be critical to whether a project succeeds or fails. You can gain success for your project if you deal with project risks in a proactive manner. The result will be that you minimize the impact on the project and seize the opportunity to correct potential project road blocks (B. Jutte). All project plan need to include a risk management plan that is implemented early in the project and monitored throughout the life of the project (Risk Management Guide for DoD Acquisition). This discussion post asked us to identify four potential overall risks that could be experienced in the execution of our contract and procurement plan. The four major risks that could be experienced in the execution of my contract and procurement plan are: technical, schedule, production and cost. My contract and procurement plan is the development of a variable speed air refueling drogue to support tactical air refueling of rotary-wing and tilt-rotor aircraft by Air Combat Command and Air Force Special Operations Command C-130J tanker aircraft. Currently the tanker aircraft are configured with a either a low speed drogue for rotary-wing air refueling or a high speed drogue for tilt-rotor air refueling. Both of the commands......

What features or functions of PowerPoint (PPT) do you feel are generally useful? I’ve never used PowerPoint so this is new to me. After reading and watching the M.U.S.E videos and the other sources in the learning materials, I feel that all the features and functions to PowerPoint will be useful. I have learned that your PowerPoint presentation should not be too flashy and the sound to your presentation should be appropriate. I have learned that you can add tables from Excel and Word and also add animations too. I think as long as you put together a great presentation with information that when you add clipart and sound that meets the presentation and is appropriate the presentation will be amazing. 2. From your experience of sitting through PowerPoint (PPT) presentations, what are some things that presenters have included in their PowerPoint Presentation that you feel are annoying and should not be included in a “good” PPT presentation? In my business there are tons of PowerPoint training presentations. What I feel is most annoying is pointless information. I’ve seen some that give me information but then put information in that has nothing to do with the subject of the presentation itself. Another thing is cartoon graphics. I personally don’t want to see an animation of random things especially if they have nothing to......

...Discussion Board Unit 3 Comp102/1401B Introduction to Computer Lab For your discussion board for Week 3, use your favorite search engine to research the steps necessary to do an effective presentation using PowerPoint. Explore beyond your first results, and look for information that interests you and that you did not know about making effective presentations. I had found this website while researching steps to effective presentations (http://presentationsoft.about.com/od/powerpointtips/qt/planningppt.htm). This site focuses more on the before steps before you start actually designing your PowerPoint presentation. I thought that this was useful because in order to create a PowerPoint presentation you should be prepared and have your information ready In Gathering your Information they used a saying that caught my attention (Kiss-Keep It Simple Silly). I thought that was a good reminder to not overdue yourself on the presentation. Also I thought that sticking with 3 or 4 main points for your presentation was a good tip because if you use too much information then your presentation will lose the audience’s attention. I found this website Speaking about Presenting at (http://www.speakingaboutpresenting.com/design/effective-powerpoint-presentations/). It caught my attention with the phrases that they used. Avoid cheesy effects and focus on simple design basics. This site also had tips on viewing the PowerPoint presentation pertaining to the backgrounds of the......

...ACCT311 Unit3 - Discussion Board Consider the following scenario: Jim’s Music Company uses LIFO for inventory, and the company’s profits are quite high this year. The cost of inventory has been steadily rising all year, and Jim is worried about his taxes. You are Jim's accountant and you suggested that the company make a large purchase of inventory to be received during the last week in December. You explained to Jim that this would reduce his income significantly. Jim still doesn't understand the logic of your suggestion. Explain how the purchase would affect taxable income. (1 paragraph) Is this ethical? Jim is uncertain about the appropriateness of this from a legal and ethical perspective. Give your opinion and explain the ethical implications of making the purchase. (1 to 2 paragraphs) I would tell Jim that if he was to make the large purchase close to the end of the year, it would leave his taxable income lower due to the unsold inventory. There wouldn't be anything unethical about this transaction because it would all be recorded into the proper categories. I work for a large corporation and in my department; my manager tells me that we need to buy all we can during the last quarter. She tells me that this will help our projected budget for the upcoming year. I feel that this is a similar situation. If Jim didn’t make the purchase, leaving his end of year net come high, the big boss can lower the budget for the next year for the inventory......

Acct311 Unit 3 Discussion Board

...The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion. At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation. The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit. Consider the following scenario: Jim’s Music Company uses LIFO for inventory, and the......

...Introduction The nomination and election of a board of directors is a critical event for an organization. Selecting the right individuals to comprise the board that will provide adequate oversight and ensure alignment of management to that of shareholders and stakeholders best interests is vital to the success of the company. This paper explores how boards are formed, how individuals become part of boards, the type of individuals that should comprise a board, CEO duality and the advantages and disadvantages of having non-executive board members. How Boards are formed When forming a board of directors the c-suite should see the board and its members as a strategic partner rather than as a necessary requirement a corporation must have. The initial question that must be answered when considering forming a board of directors is what type of board does your organization need and select appropriate board leadership that meets the needs of your organization. In forming a board of directors many things must be taken into consideration such as the composition of the board, the number of board members, committee structure, roles and responsibilities, evaluation metrics for board performance and meeting frequency. Each of these elements will lead to the success of the board creating a strong platform for corporate governance. How do individuals become part of the Board of directors (Methods / Process)? In Canada upon incorporation of a company the......

...economies slowed , BECAUSE of both the slowdown in the industrialized countries and the slowdown in their internal demands. Mexico has a 2.2 percent average tariff rate. It has reduced tariff and non-tariff barriers unilaterally and through trade agreements like the Pacific Alliance. A law passed in December 2013 will partially open the energy sector to foreign investment. The financial sector is relatively small and lacks dynamism. Mexico needs to build a deeper and more accessible banking system. The OECD bemoaned Mexico’s record: it is alone among big emerging markets in suffering from sustained declines in the broadest measure of productivity during the past decade. In order for GDP growth to rise from its current potential of about 3% to a healthier 4%, the productivity trend must be reversed through structural reforms, it said. Mexico’s three main political parties, which have created a pact to promote more than 100 such changes, are aiming for 5%. How much is our country´s external debt? In which way does affect us and our economy? Our external debt is nearly of 443,012,459,000 At more than $14 trillion, America's debt might seem abstract, a number so large it's difficult to conceptualize. But if left unchecked, that swiftly swelling figure has the potential to affect our daily lives in a big way, primarily in the forms of higher interest rates and ultimately, a slower economy. And the numbers are only getting scarier. That $14 trillion tab is growing at a......
