    The article in consideration by Chris Mfula talks about differing forecasts of Zambia’s GDP growth in 2010, citing reasons why the GDP of Zambia forecasts a growth of 6.6% in 2010.This forecast is based on improving outputs of the mining, agriculture and tourism sectors. The article highlights that the previous forecast of 5.8% in June was as a result of sluggish global recovery.

    FISHER PRICE TOYS I. PROBLEM This case study is a microcosm of the many concepts of marketing, many of them far removed from what appears to be a simple price-point problem. That price-point problem is stated in the beginning – a mold price for a projected toy can't be made for a budgeted price, thereby resulting in the need for a higher price. This was a strong point of departure for the Fisher-Price company, since few of its items had sold for more than $5. Hence Fisher-Price must decide

Fisher manipulated it to solve for i, in order to understand the effect that inflation has on nominal interest rate. The
