Big Time Entertainment

make yourself CEO of only one of these hypothetical companies.

Profile of the Companies

All America Grocery Inc – We serve communities in the middle of the income market providing low prices for all basic grocery needs. Our modest income consumers expect goods deals on good quality foods. The Covid-19 pandemic has put upward pressure on the price of everything we sell. We are also experience rising cost in every aspect of our operation as we have to put extra resources in to protecting both our employees and the public. We are both fortunate and unfortunate that the price elasticity of demand for food is .20.

Very Big US Auto – Very Big US Auto is one of the oldest and one of the largest manufacturers of autos in the US. Very Big US Auto’s supply chain is highly dependent components manufactured in China and assembled in the US, (think back to our week 1 problem with the seat manufacturer). The Chinese economy has rebounded quickly, much of the production capacity is still going to rebuild inventories, so the supply of components still lag behind demand so there is upward pressure on all of our costs. Additionally manufacturing facilities like ours must take extra precaution to keep workers safe. Costs are rising on all aspects of production across the industry. On the demand side, Very Big US Auto knows that demand is relatively elastic with a price elasticity of demand of 1.2. But we also know that pandemic has made some transportation substitutes less acceptable.

Big Time Entertainment – Big Time Entertainment is a nationwide firm providing movies, arcades and other in person entertainment venues such as bowling and roller skating. Our operations have been heavily impacted during the Covid-19 pandemic. On reopening we have been faced with a host of regulations that have greatly increased our cost of operations. We also face uncertainty as to the potential for additional shutdowns. Customers are fearful plus the guidance on operating our facilities means we are operating far below our optimal number of patron to cover the higher cost for cleaning and other measure to protect the public and our employees. Price elasticity of demand is 1.6 and we are also faced with more competitors, online entertainment and gaming, that are not experiencing these cost pressures.
Now explain:

Is the demand curve for your product relatively elastic, inelastic or unitary elastic? Demonstrate for your company’s product, by how much the quantity demanded will change if you pass on a 10% increase in cost. In other words, show your calculation of the percentage change in the quantity demanded if your prices are raised by 10%. You must provide a calculations showing the percentage change in quantity demanded.
Given your company’s price elasticity of demand and the industry supply/competitive environment you face, prepare a statement for your board as to the potential impact on profits. Who will pay the larger share of the cost increases, your firm or your customer

  2. References: At least five sources must be cited and referenced (you may use the textbook to compare and contrast to what others are saying. Three out of the five sources required must be peer-reviewed. “Peer reviewed” (also known as “refereeing”) is the process academic articles go through to be recognized as valuable contributions to the field. Peer review is the process of subjecting an author’s scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field. In our field of business management, peer reviewed may include journals from the following: Academy of Management, Human Resource Management Review, Industrial Management, Journal of Organizational Behavior Management, and Management Quarterly. Other sources may include newspaper or magazine articles that are not peer reviewed. You may cite more than five peer-reviewed sources; five is simply the minimum.
  3. Quotes: Limit the use of direct quotes in your paper. Your paper must contain no more than 15% direct quotes.

If you were writing a researched proposal for your supervisor, you would cite your sources following APA. You would use in-text citations to let your reader know where your information comes from. You would use a references page to list all your sources following APA guidelines (I would recommend visiting this site: https://apastyle.apa.org/style-grammar-guidelines/ https://apastyle.apa.org/style-grammar-guidelines/).
