Well I got a 73% on the paper. Even though I recieve C grades for both papers, my other work pulled my grade up to an 80%.I do need to complete the final exam this week. And I really need to make a minimum of 80% in order to keep my average at a B! Would Monday or Wednesday work better for your schedule? I have attached the study guide for the final exam so you know what to expect.

Here are my professors comments on Project #2-
OK, Jeff, I see that you have added a bit of macro economic analysis to the beginning of the project while retaining some of the original project micro economic flavor. A good Introduction highlighting the critical issues for a stations today. Formatting is good and easy to follow with appropriate use of in text citations and tables and charts with relevant information. Presentation point award 10 points. The project covers well a number of the required macro economic variables but is incomplete. Take your project and check off the items covered against the list of required items in the project description. Mention of fiscal policies and demographics are particularly important for the start up and not covered well if at all. Maybe there is a formatting problem but I do not see GDP or growth in GDP and the business cycle covered in terms of the start up. (Relevant Data analysis point award: 160 points.) While incomplete and still focused on micro issues I find the conclusions and recommendations tie in the relevant data analysis presented. I’m not sure how much Edgar, by the way not mentioned in the study, feels strongly about national trend. I would consider that he is concerned with his local market which has not received detailed treatment. His is interested in the pricing and cost aspects you mention but how about the demographics of his situation which is not handled well. Missing a discussion of data and underlying economic principles and no justification given for recommendations in terms of economic impact limits the significance of this segment. (Conclusion and Recommendations point award: 20 points) Total point award: 190 points
