Product Purchases and the Economy

| August 20, 2015

You’ve been debating on making a purchase for yourself.  This is a product you’ve wanted for a while, but one that requires budgeting because you will be making monthly payments.

Select a product in which the demand for the product is clearly affected by the strength or weakness of the overall economy such as new homes, cars, appliances, smart phones, etc.

Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper in which you address the following:

  • Identify and define two economic indicators that reflect the strength of the economy (e.g. real GDP, unemployment rate, inflation rate, interest rate, housing starts, etc.).
  • With these economic indicators in mind, how has the economy affected the demand for and supply of your selected product over the last 2 years?
  • What was the impact on the supply of the product and the impact on the demand for the product?
  • Explain the impact on the price of the product and your decision on whether or not to buy the product. 
  • Include responses to the following:
    • How might you apply what you learned about supply and demand to your work place or your understanding of the product you are considering purchasing?
    • How do the concepts of macroeconomics help you understand the factors that affect shifts in supply and demand on the price of the product? 

Include in in-depth introduction and conclusion
