    How Does The Market Solve The Consumer Goods-capital Goods Production Dilemma? How does the market solve the consumer goods-capital goods production dilemma? How does the command system attempt to solve it?

    • Consumer goods-Capital goods dilemma is solved by increasing the production of Capital Goods in order to meet the increased demand for the consumer goods. In a free market economy this is done by market forces of demand and supply. Government does not interfere directly.

      A Command system is one where the government, rather than the free market, determines what goods should be produced, how much should be produced and the price at which the goods will be offered for sale. The command economy is a key feature of most communist society.
      A command system is also known as a planned economy and are unable to efficiently allocate goods because of the knowledge problem – the central planner’s inability to discern how much of a good should be produced. Shortages and surpluses are a common consequence of command economies. A free-market price system, on the other hand, signals to producers what they should be creating and in what quantities, resulting in a much more efficient allocation of goods.

    Consumer Product Safety Act Of 1972? What was the consumer issue that caused the need for the act?

    Why the revelent consumer issue became inmportant at the time the act was passed?

    was there a specific chain of events that led to the legislation

    who promoted the legislation?

    • Congress passed the Consumer Product Safety Act in 1972 to “assist consumers in evaluating the comparative safety of consumer products; to develop uniform safety standards for consumer products and to minimize conflicting state and local regulations; and to promote research and investigation into the causes and prevention of product related death, illnesses, and injuries.” The act also established the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to “protect the public against unreasonable risks associated with consumer products.” The CPSC has authority to set mandatory standards, ban products, order recalls of unsafe products, and institute labeling requirements.

      The CPSC is an independent regulatory agency charged with protecting consumers from unreasonable risk of injury associated with consumer products. The most serious risks include amputation, electrocution, burns, asphyxiation, and cancer. Examples of recent product liability lawsuits in which defendant companies lost include breast implants that leaked silicone gel and football helmets that did not have enough padding. The commission has jurisdiction over about 15,000 types of consumer products, such as automatic coffee makers, toys, furniture, clothing, and lawn mowers. The CPSC works to reduce the risk of injury and death from consumer products by:

      Developing voluntary standards with industry
      Issuing and enforcing mandatory standards and banning consumer products if no feasible standard would adequately protect the public
      Obtaining the recall of products or arranging for their repair
      Conducting research on potential product hazards
      Informing and educating consumers through the media, state and local governments, and private organizations, and by responding to consumer inquiries. (CPSC, 1999).
      The CPSC has three key program areas:

      The Office of Hazard Identification and Reduction, which collects and analyzes consumer injury and death data to determine trends in consumer product hazards.
      The Office of Compliance and Enforcement, which supervises compliance and administrative activities related to the act. This office also reviews proposed standards and rules with respect to their enforceability.
      The Office of Information and Public Affairs, which is responsible for the development, implementation, and evaluation of a comprehensive national information and public affairs program designed to promote product safety. (Fise, 1998).
      In recent years, the CPSC has been involved in actions to protect children. In 1987, for example, the commission began to examine toys that pose choking hazards. This led Congress to pass the Child Safety Protection Act of 1994. A sample of child safety issues investigated by the commission includes bicycle helmets, public play grounds, upholstered furniture, walkers, drawstrings on children’s clothing, baseball protective equipment, and toys. More than 160 deaths from toys were reported between 1990 and 1997, and at least seventy-two different toys that posed a small-parts hazard were recalled between October 1996 and September 1997 by the CPSC.(Public Interest Research Group [PIRG], 2000). PIRG reports that in 1998 fewer toys posing choking hazards appeared on shelves.

      In addition, the commission has also written rules to establish performance, design, composition, packaging, and construction standards for many products. Examples of products with mandatory safety standards include matchbooks, walk-behind power lawn mowers, residential garage door openers, swimming pool slides, chain-saws, home-use pesticides, and cellulose insulation (Garman, 1997).

      Consumers have benefited in the areas where the CPSC has taken action. The commission is constantly challenged to keep abreast of new products and potential hazards that may be associated with them. The commission is usually able to react, however, only after a consumer has been injured or died. The CPSC has changed the way many products are designed and manufactured. Continuing education by consumer groups, the media, and the CPSE has helped increase public awareness of possible consumer safety hazards. The CPSC is an important consumer protection agency, protecting consumers by assuring that products they use every day are safe.

    Is This A Good Website Design? Hi,

    I would really appreciate it if you could let me know what you think of my new website design. Me and my wife have spent a lot of time and money trying to make it look professional. The website is to sell mobile phones.

    Here is a link: (Temporary Domain): http://tvpreview.co.uk/index.php/

    If it is possible, please could you let me know what you think of the design of the homepage.
    - Rate it out of 10 (1 poor to 10 Fab)
    - Postives
    - Negatives
    - Improvements

    Main question: What niche age do you think it would appeal to?.

    Thank you so much for your time,
    Joe.

    • I will answer your question based on categories that I’m going to list below.

      But first thing first I just only want to make it clear that this is just only my personal opinion as a critics viewing website.

      I will tell things that I saw negative rather than saying what is already positive on the design.

      1. Color
      2. General Layout
      3. User Accessibility

      COLOR: I cannot distinguished what is the based color of the website since it is macro color or technicolor. Most website have a base theme color, even it has color combination it should still have the ability to show the visitor the base color

      like for example Yahoo: the base color is purple but it still have other color such as blue and red. but by 1 looking at yahoo website purple color is what stick on my mind “oh its yahoo”

      It is still good to have a base color for any website so that visitor can easily remember your site.

      The macro color is perhaps good in solid prints such as flyers and brochure that is give by sales man outside a grocery or mall. but in website? I don’t thing its good

      2. General Layout: hhhmm I get confused on the image slider because Its hard to distinguish it coz it blends on the 2 images adds below. maybe the macro color also affect.

      3. User-Accessibility – As a visitor sometimes I am lazy to scroll my my page over and over again just to see all web content. Most visitor want to instantly see the actual content of the website and if there some other minor detail it should separate in the new page.

      Like in a movie commercial it just like a teaser. or in a news paper it just like a headline.

      Another things is perhaps it should be great if the content of the page is auto-fit 100% to the browser width. Most latest html/css design use the maximum width.

      Well like what I said it just my personal thought… Hope it help

    How To Get Website Design Orders/customers? I am running a website designing and Web based software Development Company , Now i am extremely struggling to get customers. Please advise me how i can get more orders and target customers; this is a small company with strong technical team and good profile. http://www.wizardi.co.uk

    • After a cursory review of your opening webpage, it appears that there is insufficient, inadequate SEO metatags to draw web traffic to your wonderful website. So, who’s in charge of White Hat SEO at your site? Merely placing the entry “Wizardi” in the metatag assumes that “Wizardi” is a major recognizable “brand.” And if that is not the case, then provide more description keywords which best describe your services followed by a geographic target, i.e., your business location in what city, state, country.</p> <p>Here’s a helpful tutorial to assist in designing effective metatags which will draw clients to your website. Even though this tutorial was initially directed to the U.S. marketplace, it is very much relevant to other similar businesses in overseas markets:</p> <p>The most effective way to advertise on the Internet is<br /> to first set up a website and publish its domain name<br /> on major search directories such as Google.com,<br /> Yahoo.com [at <a href="http://www.google.com/addurl/" rel="nofollow">http://www.google.com/addurl/</a>?...... and<br /> MSN.com since 85% of Internet shoppers rely on these<br /> search directories to provide them with goods and<br /> services. In a sense, these search directories are a<br /> very large Internet Yellow Pages.</p> <p>Nevertheless, should your website or opening webpage<br /> fail to contain "generic" keywords, then anyone using<br /> such "generic" queries will not be able to discover<br /> your website. Your domain name [URL] of your website,<br /> in a sense, will be invisible, undiscoverable.</p> <p>You may want to consider some simple algorithms which,<br /> when observed and committed in designing of a website<br /> with placement of various critical metatags that can<br /> surely achieve a high search engine presence and<br /> increase Internet traffic to your website. These<br /> metatag strategies work well with published webpages<br /> at Google and Yahoo.</p> <p>Design: Should you create an extensive Flash-based<br /> website, make sure to fill-in the property entries<br /> such as the Title, Description and Keywords. Failing<br /> to do so, leaves no hard HTML or ALT resource that can<br /> be readily indexed by search robots. Also consider the<br /> Internet audience and their incoming setup. For<br /> example, if they are on analog/dialup, Flash webpages<br /> take too long to load up and therefore analog users<br /> will likely lose interest and discontinue entering the<br /> Flash site. On the other hand, anyone on hi-speed DSL<br /> lines, will welcome Flash pages which load quickly. So<br /> before designing a pure Flash websitge, ask the simple<br /> question, “Who’s my end user – is he on dialup or<br /> DSL?” And if you had to choose between these two users<br /> for maximum marketability, then select analog users<br /> since 80% of most resident users are still analog<br /> Internet subscribers and pure HTML designed webpages<br /> is best for them.</p> <p>A non-Flash-based website which relies on hard text,<br /> is far easier to be indexed by search robots. Limit<br /> the use of stylized text saved as .gifs since as a<br /> graphic, they are not indexable by search robots.</p> <p>Avoid use of frames since any number of search robots<br /> are unable to properly classify textual material.</p> <p>Placement of Metatags:</p> <p>A ranking or search order does take place with Google<br /> and Yahoo and it begins with the “Title” metag which<br /> should consist of no more than 65 characters separated<br /> by commas. The “Title” should describe in generic<br /> terms, the goods and services, followed by a location<br /> from which the resource is located, i.e., city, state.<br /> The placement of a domain name which is not generic<br /> within the “Title” is not appropriate, unless your<br /> domain name is a major recognizable brand name.</p> <p>The second metatag is the “Description” which is<br /> usually 25-30 words to form a complete sentence which<br /> best describes one’s goods and services.</p> <p>And the very last category – “Keywords” are also<br /> somewhat limited to 15-16 words which can be plural<br /> and compound in nature. Again, avoid multiple entries<br /> which could be mistaken as “spamdexed entries” which<br /> is defined as the loading, and submission of<br /> repetitive words into a particular metatag category.<br /> “Spamdexing” when discovered on a webpage and reported<br /> to Google’s spamreport.com can result in the<br /> elimination of your website from their search<br /> directory.</p> <p>Good luck!

    What Type Of Website Would Attract More Visitors.? Hello. I am studying website development and would like to create a website as a hobby but also hope to make some money from the traffic to fund the hosting etc.

    Do you think a website about fitness/health/bodybuilding or a website about movies/reviews/television would generate more traffic? I am very interested in both of these subjects so it is a hard choice.

    Thank You

    • Pornographic websites control 1/3 of the internet community.
      But you can make a website about movie reviews,television reviews,ect ect,
      and if you want more traffic you can have a 18+ section for reviews about adult movies.

    How Can I Drive More Visitors To My Website? Just finished a new website and I need to know how I can drive a lot of targeted traffic to it without using Google Adwords.

    • Al Mundy,

      While it is important to generate large volumes of traffic to a website, it is important that people visiting your website are likely to buy products and the services you offer.

      1. Know your target customer and ensure that all your advertising campaigns are aimed at these customers. This means you must use all the necessary keywords that define your potential customers in all of your advertising campaigns. If you are writing articles as a way to promote your website, your articles should contain the keywords of your niche.

      2. List your website with search engines and directories in categories that fit your niche. If your website is about selling products or services that relate to making money online, for example, get your website listed in this category on relevant websites. This means that people who are looking for that specific information relating to your website will easily find you.

      3. Advertise your website in relevant forums and online groups. The more you know about your potential customers, the better you know where to find them. This means you can go to relevant forums or online groups where your customers hangout and you can advertise your web site there through the URL of your website in your signature to messages in these forums. People in forums that relate to your target niche customers have a high potential to buy from your website.

      4. Write articles that are rich with your keywords. Articles are collected and published by many websites, electronic journals and directories. So quickly with thousands of back links pointing to your website. It is therefore important that all your articles have several of your keywords so that when people type these keywords in search engines while looking for information, and your website appears prominently on these engines search. This leads targeted traffic to your website.

      5. Use your own e-zine and related e-zines to advertise your website. By publishing your own e-zine, you already have many prospects who are interested in what you have to offer. Make sure your e-zine has new content and supplies a way a free report or ebook to subscribers. Make sure the web site URL is added in all publications of the e-zine. Identify other e-zines, with an audience that matches your niche target market and advertise your website in these e-zines.

      6. Research and find other websites where your target customers visit and inquire about advertising your website on these websites.

      7. Create a FaceBook fan page highlighting it with a link to your website

      8. Put your web site link in your signature on all of your email.

      9. Solo Ads, UsFreeAds.com & Craigslist

      10. SEO. (Search Engine Optimization)

      Have all your keywords on your website. It is important that you have all the relevant keywords and phrases that relate to your topic on your web pages and any articles you post on your website. This will increase your website ranking on search engines which means that your website will rank high when people type keywords relating to your topic on search engines. You will therefore get many visitors coming to your site via the search engines. When people visit your website, the high quality content you have will make people spend more time on your site and ultimately buy some of the products or services you offer on your site.

      Hope this helps!
