ARCHIVES: Quarter 1 Year 2019

ECONOMIC NEWS:

GDP increased about 1% and inflation was moderate in both the EU and NAFTA.  The T-bill rate increased ½%.  The Great Recession is over and most think the robust recovery has spent its fuel.  Citizens and their leaders appear fatigued by it all and are ready to embrace a quiet, stable, positive year or two of reflection.

 

Stock prices are high, mirroring the very healthy balance sheets and income statements of both NAFTA and EU firms.


INDUSTRY

Demand was seasonally constant to slightly higher in all products in all areas.

Peacock is now closed to ALL Simulation Teams. Any contracts entered this quarter and all future quarters will be deleted.

 

If your firm does not have a manufacturing plant you may negotiate with other simulation teams to purchase finished goods. You may NOT enter a contract with another simulation team without that team's confirmation of agreement to all contract details. Entering unauthorized contracts is illegal and will not be tolerated.

 

If your firm does not yet have the password for the Chat Room/Message Board forum please contact Kristi your simulation administrator for assistance.

 

*Remember that Peacock does NOT sell raw materials or plant hours. To purchase raw materials, use the "Raw Materials" decision form. These materials must be ordered one quarter in advance of using them in production. These will always be your cheapest source of raw materials.

 

To order plant hours, use the "Capacity" decision form to order stage 1 and stage 2 plant hours in the area or areas of your choice.
