  6. Japón 2010: Los años perdidos EC1-122

    This case takes a look at the events that led up to the bursting of Japan’s stock-market bubble in 2010. It begins by describing the economic situation in Japan in the 1980s at the start of the crisis, delving into the appreciation of the yen, loss of competitiveness, low interest rates, the over-valuation of the stock market leading to inflation and the upward trend in the unemployment rate. It emphasizes that there were twenty years of poor political leadership where the political party changed frequently. The case outlines the government in Japan during the nineties and includes a detailed description of how each prime minister’s actions affected the economy. Then in 2001, seeking economic recovery, Koizumi’s government launched a comprehensive plan of reforms based on solving the problem of bad debts, establishing a stable financial system and defining seven programs of structural reform. When Koizumi left office, the economic situation was unstable and between 2006 and 2009, up to three different prime ministers occupied the post. Between 2007 and 2009, stimulus packages implemented by the government caused public debt as a percentage of Japan’s GDP to increase nearly 55 percent. This led the Bank of Japan to take emergency measures. In 2009, Hatoyama came into power, ending the Koizumi era. The government then had their chance to put an end to the “lost years.”

  9. Production costs, revenues and profits in perfect co … EC1-136-I

    The objective of this short case is to familiarize students with what it is like to do business at the base of the pyramid; and to use a practical situation to review the concepts of fixed and variable costs, implicit and explicit costs, and accounting profit vs economic profit. Students are also asked to reflect on the implications of operating in a perfectly competitive market, and to offer suggestions from market structure theory for a firm like the one described here, that would enable it to break out of its inevitable zero-profit equilibrium and move toward economic profits in the long run.
