Discouraged Workers and the Economy.
Assignment 2: Discouraged Workers and the Economy
A discouraged worker is an individual without a job who has a desire to work; however, the worker has not actively searched for a job within the last six months, because the worker believes that there are no jobs available. Such a worker is not included in the official unemployment count.
Consider a scenario where discouraged workers are now included in the official unemployment rate during a recessionary period in the economy. Which of the three types of unemployment frictional, structural, or cyclical do you believe that these unemployed workers would most closely qualify for? How about during a period of economic expansion? Explain your answers and include examples.
Next, discuss and explain how including discouraged workers in the official unemployment rate would affect both the federal deficit and the national debt. Include examples to support your conclusions.

Using Microsoft Excel, draw a graph illustrating the supply and demand in this market.
What is the equilibrium Price and Quantity in the market?
Now suppose the government imposes a special tax on these computers. Describe what would happen in this market in terms of the supply and demand curve.
Disregard the new tax in part three. Now assume that the government imposes a price ceiling of $100 in this market, as a result of protests of price gauging by the sellers. What would happen to the price and quantity in this market?
Disregard the events of part four. Assume that the manufacturers of this product lobby the government s lawmakers, in terms of this product being an essential for college students but they are considering halting production due to the lack of profits. The lawmakers agree and now set a price floor at $150. What would happen in this market?
If consumers expectations were such that they were concerned about the economy and jobs, what would you think would happen in this market?
