However, Merck & Co. may hope for a veto of that tax cut. With a cut they would be increasing their cost of debt, in which they have excess financing ($161 billion). They would also lose out on their tax shield from the interest on their debt. Overall, the economy, the market, and the individual sectors seem to be doing well. To tamper with things now would almost certainly throw a wrench into what the Fed has already done to try and stimulate the economy.
Wealth is drained from the economy for unproductive purposes and economic growth slows down as there are fewer funds for infrastructural development. Also, employment creation for a high percentage of unemployed population becomes challenging. Circular flow of income is the lifeline of a flourishing economy. Unemployment slows down this flow by the lack of money inflow and outflow. When money is not pumping into the economy, its growth becomes sluggish.
(Greene, 2006) It's also believed that if the US continues to trade freely with the overseas countries then the powerful drag of their far lower wages will begin dragging down American's average wages. (Greene, 2006) Economist has found that tax cuts offered to large manufactures have caused productivity to go up. The manufactures are actually given tax breaks to be able to purchase more machinery to do the jobs and therefore fewer laborers are needed, causing a large number of workers to be displaced. The tax act that was initiated by Bush administration for big businesses was the "bonus depreciation". Under this act the more the companies spend on equipment the less the tax they have to pay.
This lowered level of disposable income leads to a decrease in consumption spending as well as a decrease in savings. This decrease in consumer and government spending causes the total spending to decrease by a multiplied amount, As a result of the decrease in total spending the aggregate demand decreases and the aggregate demand curve shifts to the left. This decrease in consumer and government spending also causes businesses to have a surplus of inventories. At this point the output is greater than spending and as a result prices begin to fall. Because of the surplus of goods and falling prices consumption becomes more desirable to consumers and the level of consumer spending rises.
Because people don’t buy in high price, firms reduce the price of their product. Finally, the value of money become higher than now. But economic growth stops because firm become not to be able to produce so much anymore because aggregate demand is falling. But one firm reduce cost mean other firm do it too. It may be continued to reduce price in all the business.
However, this increase in taxes should be kept in perspective, since a tax increase will reduce personal income and business profits. Too high of an increase in taxes will only stifle economic growth by reducing the money businesses would have to invest in expansion and job creation. The latest step in balancing the budget was a stop-gap spending bill which passed through the House of Representatives November 8, 1995, ([CNN-House passes stop-gap spending bill-Nov.8,1995], http://www.cnn.com//US/9511/budget/index.html) This bill reduces the funding for some programs. On Monday, President Clinton vetoed the stop-gap spending measure, and a debt limit extension calling them "too high a price"
In the end the economy comes to equilibrium, and the new technology usually benefits the majority of consumers. d. A reduction in net exports A rapid reduction in net export, could lead economy to a recessionary gap; for the reason that once the manufacturers loose some of its market share, usually they are left with few choices. One of them is to reduce its output, and in most cases lay off some of the workers, which will lead to a reduction in disposable personal income, which will cause reduction in aggregate demand, and once again it will cause decrease in aggregate supply. The multiplier influences aggregate demand both ways; so an initial reduction in spending will cause additional reductions in spending down the
An automatic stabilizer that will lower gross domestic product is welfare. As income rises, there are less people who need welfare, therefore reducing the amount of government spending, and lowering the gross domestic product. Due to such automatic stabilizers as progressive tax rates and the decrease of government spending due to welfare, therefore a decrease in government borrowing, therefore a decrease in the demand for the dollar, therefore a decrease in the interest rate, which would cause a decrease in the foreign demand for dollar, which would cause the dollar to depreciate, therefore lowering inflation due to a less valuable dollar.
The United States has been facing some of the worst economic times since the Great Depression in the 1930’s. One option to fix the economy is to change the corporate tax rate. To lower it or to raise it, that is the question about which economists have been speculating. America's high corporate tax rate and the worldwide system of taxation discourages U.S. companies from repatriating their foreign-source profits (Camp). There is a controversy about whether lowering or raising corporate tax rates will help American businesses and the United States government, lowering corporate taxes will create more jobs in corporations while raising taxes will create more jobs in the bureaucracy, However is it pointless to worry about taxes if loopholes can be found so that businesses do not have to pay any tax.
I will look at the decrease in median income due to less college graduates as well multiplier effect of college graduates and the resulting loss of tax revenue due to this decrease. The full impact of the loss of these graduates needs to be expressed because most of the change occurs from the chain of expenditures that results from college graduates having a higher median income than their non-graduate peers. This chain of spending that is the result from the state funding higher education is called the multiplier effect. This is an economic issue because there is a quantifiable change in the economy due to these budget cuts in the California State University system which means there is less money moving around and there will be fewer college graduates. The budget proposed by Governor Jerry Brown for the fiscal year of 2011-2012 will have a decrease of 4.5% from the total funds and a decrease of 12.5% from the general fund to the California State University system, a total of $542.4 mill... ... middle of paper ... ...x opinions, in our state legislature to raise taxes or fees a two-thirds majority is required.
