ECONOMIC NEWS:

Equity markets are slowly trending upwards.  Business leaders and government officials are putting pressure on NAFTA and EU central banks to ‘back off’ of their ever tightening monetary policy.  There is growing concern that high interest rates could strangle the modest growth taking place.


INDUSTRY

Raw material prices fell as bottlenecks in the supply chain were eliminated.  Type 1 decline by $.25 and Type 2 by $.10.

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.
