  1. Interactive graph of a competitive market EC2-029-I-M

    The purpose of this interactive tutorial is to help students learn and comprehend the effect of changes in the variables of supply and demand in a microeconomic market assuming perfect competition. Students can interact with both curves and see the equilibrium process in terms of prices and quantities exchanged. The program assumes that students are familiar with the underlying concepts of the graphic representation of a market with perfect competition.

    For a better understanding of the main effects of the changes in the curves this graphic resource allows students to make only one move per curve and does not envisage changes in the curves´ elasticity. Students can interact with both curves (demand and supply) either separately or jointly. There are also simple exercises that enable students to test their comprehension of how the market works and check their answers through interaction with the graph.

  2. Balance of payments EC2-019-I-M

    In this interactive tutorial students will learn how to draft a balance of payments and see how it works. This is structured in three dynamics with very different objectives. The first two focus on an orderly or systematic drafting of a balance of payments defining its structure and assigning a place to each item and the corresponding items to each sub-balance. There are also exercises with some simple questions to test the students’ understanding of the measurement and interpretation of a balance of payments and some practical applications of using a balance of payments as an instrument for economic analysis.

  4. Galletas Fontaneda and United Biscuits RH1-120-I

    This case is about how a small town joined together and fought to keep a biscuit factory open that was deeply rooted in their community. The biscuit factory Fontaneda (United Biscuits) did not just provide jobs for many of the locals in Aguilar de Campoo (Spain), the community also relied on it for things like building a school or bus stop. However, the factory operated at only 30 percent capacity, leading them to announce the transfer of all workers and the closure of the factory in 2002. This led to a crisis with lots of backlash and a major confrontation between the workers, citizens and the multinational, which became a public relations disaster for the company. Politicians and union leaders also stepped in, mobilizing against the closing. The case walks readers through the seven months of negotiations between the parties and describes how the crisis was managed. Eventually, the factory was sold to Siro, excluding the brand, and workers were given options to move to another United Biscuits plant, to retire early or to work under Siro. Although there were tough moments during the negotiation process, this was seen as a victory by the union headquarters, and during 2002 and 2003, United Biscuits strongly exceeded its financial performance.

  8. Gráfico interactivo del modelo de oferta y demanda EC2-027-M

    The purpose of this interactive material is to enable students to learn and comprehend the cause-effect relationship in the full aggregate demand and supply (AD/AS) model and to observe the adjustment of the economy in the short and the long term. The program assumes that students are already familiar with the underlying concepts of the graphic representation of the AD/AS model.

    The tool also includes a number of simple case studies that illustrate the capacity and limits of the model and explain certain real economic situations.
