In sheet 1, you need to come up with the inputs and outputs of your decision-making units (DMUs; in our case, they are arctic and observer states). For instance, companies can be DMUs since they use labor (or the number of employees), capital (or the amount of assets), and technology (or the number of patents) (as inputs) to generate profits and sales (as outputs). For outputs, try to think about not only desirable ones (e.g., profits) but also undesirable ones (e.g., environmental pollutants). List at least three inputs and outputs, respectively. No more than 5.
In sheet 2, you need to find 10 relevant peer-reviewed articles. For instance, you can use the following keywords if you are interested in “shipping”: “data envelopment analysis” and “shipping” on Google Scholar (Links to an external site.). Once you find 10 relevant papers, fill out sheet 2 along with bibliometric information. Please try to use EndNote , Zotero (Links to an external site.), or other citation management software for your references.
After looking into inputs and outputs used in the 10 papers, go back to sheet 1 and fill out the lower part. You may change your mind after the literature review. That’s totally fine. There is no 100% correct answer for inputs and outputs. As long as you have some rationale for them, that’s fine.
Other two articles’ Chapter#1 will help you to fill out the form.

The argument is often advanced that globalization’s negative side effects developing countries more adversely than developed countries.

Using demand and supply analysis, describe a specific situation that you have witnessed
Watch the video clip from Jingle All the Way. (View Transcript.)
Consider the following:
Prices serve a rationing function. When quantity demanded exceeds quantity supplied, prices rise to alleviate the shortage. When quantity supplied exceeds quantity demanded, prices fall to alleviate the surplus. However, when prices are inflexible, shortages and surpluses persist. Other rationing mechanisms must develop.
Using demand and supply analysis, describe a specific situation that you have witnessed where a shortage occurred. Why were prices unable to adjust in this market?
Combining what you learned from your readings as well as from the video clip, what other rationing functions could develop to alleviate that shortage?
