The degree to which the new product is based on solid economic principles
MACROECONOMICS Final Project
Scenario: A major firm in the United States is contemplating rolling out a new product to aid its ailing business and has come to you for help. The CEO isn’t sure if the investment is justified by sound economic principles or the degree to which she would support the introduction of the new product, its successful launch, and its subsequent growth. As part of her due diligence, she has come to you and asked you to prepare a report on the degree to which the new product is based on solid economic principles.
