You are starting your own Internet business. You decide to form a company that will sell cookbooks online. Justcookbooks.com is scheduled to launch 6 months from today. You estimate that the annual cost of this business will be as follows:

 Technology (Web design and maintenance) \$5,000 Postage and handling \$1,000 Miscellaneous \$3,000 Inventory of cookbooks \$2,000 Equipment \$4,000 Overhead \$1,000

Part I
Deliverable Length: 1 graph plus calculations
You must give up your full-time job, which paid \$50,000 per year, and you worked part-time for half of the year.
The average retail price of the cookbooks will be \$30, and their average cost will be \$20.
Assume that the equation for demand is Q = 40,000 – 500P, where

Q = the number of cookbooks sold per month
P = the retail price of books.

Show what the demand curve would look like for price between \$25 and \$35.

Suppose that you expect to sell about 22,000 cookbooks per month online, and assume your overhead, technology, and equipment costs are fixed. What are your total costs?
Is the business worth pursuing so far?
What market structure have you entered, and why?
What can you do to guarantee success in this market?

What pricing strategy might you use?

Assignment 1: Discussion Questions

Before beginning work on this discussion forum, please review the link  the expanded grading rubric for the forum, and any specific instructions for this topic.

Before the end of the week, begin commenting on at least two of your classmates’ responses. You can ask technical questions or respond generally to the overall experience. Be objective, clear, and concise. Always use constructive language, even in criticism, to work toward the goal of positive progress. Submit your responses in the Discussion Area.

Cost of Healthcare

Physicians are tasked with providing quality care to all with an effort to maximize health outcomes and minimize cost. The United States currently spends approximately \$8,500 per person, per year on healthcare (Davis et al., 2014). This is nearly three times the amount spent in other developed nations such as the United Kingdom and Sweden, who are able to provide high quality care and deliver better health outcomes at a much lower cost.

• Identify two policies that inflate the cost of healthcare in the U.S. Explain how these policies inflate healthcare costs.
• Propose two policies to assist in shifting the curve of the relationship between costs and outcomes to a more efficient relationship in the U.S. Justify your proposals.

## Soldier’s Mail For May, 1918 Letter

P2- Should be an analytical paragraph that provides (at least) one example from the text to support the author’s claim…ie. The slave’s story provides insight into the cruelty of the system, “insert quotation from text here.”  Using direct quotations provides clarity and helps to support the author’s claims.

P3- Should summarize briefly what was covered in P1 and P2 and also say something about the significance of this document for the study of world history and how it shows global interconnectivity. (How is the world connected?)  Do not throw this paragraph away, put as much effort into it as P1 and P2.
