Financial Literacy

Complete the table for Homework for Unit 10 Homework Practice Problems. After you determine your annual salary, divide by 12 to get monthly salary and base budget for monthly expenses. Be sure to list the fraction, decimal, and percentage representations correctly. This assignment is to help you organize for the Financial Literacy Project. It is worth 20 points: 5 points for expense list and amount, 5 points for correct fraction, 5 points for correct decimal, and 5 points for correct percent. Important Note: The final version of this table should also be included in your Financial Literacy Assignment.

life expectancy and life patterns

This project relies on multiple regression analysis to analyze a data set that is of interest to you. The final report for the project should be a 5-10 page single-spaced paper that describes the questions of interest, how you used your data set to analyze these questions with details on the steps you used in your analysis, your findings about your question of interest and the limitations of your study. Specifically, your report should contain the following:


Introduction. The introduction succinctly states the problem you are interested in, briefly describes your data and the method of analysis, and summarizes your main conclusions. A summary of what you set out to learn, and what you ended up finding. It should summarize the entire report.

Data Description. This section provides the details of the data sources, any transformations you have done to the data (for example, changing the units of some variables), gives a table of summary statistics (means and standard deviations) of the variables, and provides scatterplots and/or other relevant plots of the data. If there are outliers other than those arising from corrected typographical or computer errors, this is the place to point them out.

Regression Analysis. Describe how you used multiple regression to analyze the data set. Specifically, you should discuss how you carried out the steps in analysis discussed in class, i.e., exploration of data to find an initial reasonable model, checking the model and changes to the model based on your checking of the model.

Empirical Results. This section provides the main empirical results in the paper. Conventionally, regression results are presented in tabular form, with footnotes clearly explaining the entries. The initial table of results should present the main results; sensitivity analysis using alternative specifications can be presented in additional columns in that table or in subsequent tables. For organizational purposes and clarity, you may chose to have some tables at the end of the paper, with appropriate references in the body of the paper as needed. The text should provide a careful discussion of the results, including assessments both of statistical significance and of economic significance, that is, the magnitude of the estimated relations in a real-world sense.

Summary and Discussion. This section summarizes your main empirical findings and discusses their implications for the original question of interest. Describe any limitations of your study and how they might be overcome in future research and provide brief conclusions about the results of your study.

Unemployment and Inflation

  • Imagine that you have a fixed 30-year interest rate for your mortgage, and the economy has experienced unanticipated inflation. Examine who the winner and loser would be. Is it the borrower or the lender in the given scenario? Provide support for your response.

Propagating National Security Interests

Purpose: The primary goal of this Assignment is to evaluate how communication of foreign policy interests can be influenced by different theoretical perspectives. Your task is to discuss and assess how effective are realist, liberal, and identity theoretical perspectives at communicating U.S. national interests.
Prepare: Read the Conclusion in the course text and the 2015 U.S. National Security Strategy (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..
Reflect: Effective communication is essential in conducting productive foreign affairs. One of the most important forms of communication is letting other states know national security interests. States work diligently to ensure that other states are aware of their national security interests. Conflict can sometimes erupt when national security interests are not received, are misunderstood, or are poorly communicated. As we discussed in Week Two, history is filled with examples of when states have not received, have misunderstood, or have poorly communicated vital national security interests with catastrophic results. Embedded in the challenges of effective communication is the ability to comprehend the various international relations theoretical perspectives that imbue communications of security goals, objectives, and interests. Again, incomplete awareness and understanding of this form of global political communication can lead to catastrophic results.
Write: In your assignment, complete the following:
Describe one statement in the National Security Strategy (NSS) that is based on the realist perspective.
Describe one statement in the National Security Strategy (NSS) that is based on the liberal perspective.
Describe one statement in the National Security Strategy (NSS) that is based on the identity perspective.
Explain why each statement is an example of the specified theoretical perspective.
Assess which theoretical perspective is the most effective at communicating U.S. national security interests.
