How does change in market value affect the Effective Property Tax Rate?

  
Scenario 1)
You know from government legislation that the legal tax rate on your property is 2.4% and the city’s assessed value of your property is $155,000. However, your property is currently on the market for only $60,500 due to a significant downturn in the housing market.
What is your Effective Property Tax Rate?
Scenario 2)
You know from government legislation that the legal tax rate on your property is 2.4% and the city’s assessed value of your property is $155,000. However, your property is currently on the market for $175,000 due to a recent boom in the housing market.
What is your Effective Property Tax Rate?
Analysis:
Compare and analyze the two ETRs. How did the change in market value affect the property ETR? Would you prefer your home to be undervalued or overvalued by government assessors before you pay your property taxes?

Analyze the methodology used in scientific research.

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:

Competency 1: Analyze the methodology used in scientific research.
Describe the research problems investigated by selected articles.
Analyze the researchers’ rationale for identifying and investigating the research problems in selected articles.
Examine the alignment between the research problem and research question for each article.
Competency 2: Evaluate the characteristics, purposes, benefits, strengths, and weaknesses of research methods.
Explain the contribution the research will make to the knowledge base by solving each of the research problems.
Competency 6: Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and consistent with expectations for members of the identified field of study.
Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and consistent with expectations for members of the identified field of study.
When you find, read, and analyze research literature and other scholarly works on a chosen research topic, you create a literature review. This is a carefully written analysis and summary of the information from the sources you read and analyze. Every empirical article you find has a literature review in the introduction of the article. Use these as examples for your own written literature reviews.

SHOW LESS
As a scholar and a professional, you will find that literature reviews are used for not only research articles, but also for conference or workplace presentations, or even when evaluating changes in managerial or business practice.

Literature reviews can be difficult and tedious. But they can also be extremely gratifying. It just depends on the perspective you choose to have. Not only will a solid literature review develop your expertise on a topic; it is also absolutely necessary before you can propose to do any kind of research. Research is done by experts. In addition to having deep knowledge, experts and researchers know which questions to ask and which ones are important to the field.

The first tool of research we must put into our researcher’s toolkit is a literature review—empirical knowledge and understanding of the phenomenon of interest. Research answers questions. The literature review tells us which questions have been answered and reveals to us which ones we have yet to answer or ask.
Preparation
Using the Capella University Library, select two primary research articles on the same research topic you used in Assessment 1. You may use articles you selected for Assessment 1. Keep in mind the following:
One of the articles that you choose must use a quantitative research methodology. The other article must use a qualitative methodology.
Mixed methodology studies are not permitted for this assessment.
The articles should be recent (published within the past five years) and discuss the theoretical framework used for the research.
Do not select articles that report a meta-analysis or are purely theoretical (with no data collection).
Carefully read both articles, noting how the researchers presented the research topic to the reader at the beginning of each article and how the literature review was crafted to demonstrate the research problem addressed by the study. Also note the research questions. Quantitative studies will sometimes present hypotheses instead of research questions.
To write your literature review, focus on the introduction section of each article.
Note: You will use these same two articles throughout the assessments in this course.

Instructions
In 6–8 pages, write a literature review in which you complete the following:

Begin your literature review with an introduction that explains the purpose of the review and its contents.
Describe the research topic that is investigated by the articles you chose.
This should be a general description of the topic (the subject matter of the articles), not an overview of the articles.
Present the topic scientifically, and provide citations to support your description.
Explain why the topic is relevant to the science of psychology and your specialization area or professional work.
Identify the research problems investigated in each article.
Discuss the researchers’ rationale for identifying and investigating these research problems.
Identify the research questions asked in each article.
Evaluate the alignment between the research problem and research question for each article.
In considering the introduction to each article—not the methodology, results, or discussion—discuss the contribution the research will make to the knowledge base by solving each of the research problems.
End your review with a summary and a conclusion.

Discuss potential contract defences including impossibility, duress, accord and satisfaction, fraud, lack of performance, lack of consideration, equitable defences, statue of frauds and statue of limitations.

Write an essay describing how you would advice a business with cash flow problems that wishes to break several unprofitable contacts with its suppliers and customers, to defend against several lawsuits brought against it for non-payment and to retain employees who have not received a raise in several years. Discuss potential contract defences including impossibility, duress, accord and satisfaction, fraud, lack of performance, lack of consideration, equitable defences, statue of frauds and statue of limitations. Assume that some of the contracts are oral, some were breached more than ten years ago, some cannot be performed in less than a year, some of the goods were defective, some of the representations about quality were exaggerated and the company has excess inventory. Bankruptcy is not an option. 
You are a believer in incentive contracts. Describe ways to structure the following agreements to incentivise the party providing goods or services: construction projects, sales representatives, manufacturing, mortgage, ad retail banking; professional services such as legal, accounting, and engineering. What are the drawbacks on incentive contracts. How can incentives be hedged against for non-payment by customers for commissioned sales that have already been booked; for latent defects in goods and services resulting in charge-backs or lawsuits; for fraud by the incentivised party resulting in wrongful payment? See, e.g. Wells Fargo Bank. Also provide sample language for incentive clauses and examples.

Evaluate the current compensation philosophy for your organization or an organization of your choosing (from a third-person perspective). Write a three-to-five page paper (not including the title and reference pages). Your paper should be written in a scholarly third-person tone; it should be in APA format. In addition to the introduction and conclusion, your paper should address the following:

Evaluate the organization’s current compensation philosophy and propose ways to enhance or revamp the current compensation philosophy to meet the changing needs of the organization and its employees. 
Examine key factors within the internal and external environment including the mission and strategic focus of the organization, as well as the financial and cultural aspects of your organization (i.e., they cannot have a compensation philosophy where they “lead” the market if the organization does not have the financial resources) that should influence this philosophy. The proposed philosophy itself should be no more than a short paragraph. 
Identify the key factors that should contribute to the organization’s development based on your proposed organizational philosophy.

Remember to write from a third-person perspective. Do not include wording like “my company’s philosophy is …” Instead include wording like “XYZ Company Name’s philosophy is …” Remember to write about the company and the company’s philosophy; do not refer to you or your connection to the company. 

In addition to the text, cite at least two scholarly references to support your discussion.

Explain how identifying the target market is more clearly defined once a marketer has conducted segmentation on the population.

Marketing Plan: Part II
Throughout this course, you will compile a comprehensive marketing plan. (Note: You will use the same scenario throughout the course.) This scenario will be the basis of your start-up company and will be the catalyst for the subsequent marketing plan that you will compile. The company that you choose to submit a marketing plan for is a fictional start-up company (not an existing company).
This unit’s submission should consist of the items listed below.

Provide a segmentation and target market analysis.

In this section of the marketing plan, you should identify the four criteria useful in segmenting the market, and apply them to your company. Explain how identifying the target market is more clearly defined once a marketer has conducted segmentation on the population. Explain several target markets for your company using detailed explanations.

Include a competitive and industry analysis.

This section of the marketing plan should identify three or four competitors of your company. These can be direct or indirect competitors. (Note: Not all companies have competitors.) Differentiate each competitor based upon multiple criteria. Additionally, conduct an industry analysis by looking at the health of the industry in which your company resides. Identify whether the industry has grown or shrunk in the last 5–10 years. Explain why understanding the competitors and the health of the industry are important elements of the marketing plan.

Provide a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis.

In this section, you will compile a SWOT analysis of your company. The internal strengths and weaknesses as well as the external opportunities and threats need to be identified and explained (include at least 2–3 elements under each area of the SWOT). The value proposition will be demonstrated through a strong showing in the strengths section of the SWOT analysis. Reference the SWOT analysis explanation in the Unit I Lesson for additional insight on how to compile this analysis.
