I need somebody to help gather data on economic growth in the US since 2007/2008. This includes GDP and productivity growth, among other metrics. In addition, it is important that reasons are created to explain these growth metrics (ie. income inequality). These reasons/arguments should be backed up by logical points and data.

Looking for someone who can respond to the following question below. Responses to the questions should be based on the scenario given. Consider some discounting problems. a. What is the present value of a $100m loss from an environmental catastrophe, 100 years in the future, if the discount rate is 2%? (You can choose your own rate of compounding.) b. What is the present value of the same loss, if the discount rate is 1.5% because of lower growth rate trends? If 1%? c. If a policy analyst is not certain which of the discount rates is appropriate, but believes there is an approximately equal chance of each outcome, is the average discounted present value appropriate? Does that imply a higher or lower discounted value than just using the average discount rate? d. Suppose the best available models imply a link between discount rate and damages: if economic growth is slow then the damages would be $150m and the appropriate discount rate would be 1%; if economic growth is middling then damages would be $125m and a discount rate of 1.5% would turn out to be most appropriate; if growth is good then damages are $100m and the rate 2%. Carefully explain whether averaging is the best policy (you might cite readings on this topic). What is the present value of the loss in each case?

Looking for someone who can respond to the following question below. Responses to the questions should be based on the scenario given. Consider a firm that emits CO2 in its production of output, and it faces a new regulation that requires it to buy emissions permits for each unit of CO2 produced. For simplicity assume that it emits one unit of emission (e) for each unit of output produced. Its cost function, before the emissions permit rules are passed, is c(y)=10+5y+y^2. Suppose P=20. a. How much would the firm be producing, before the emissions permit rules? Explain. b. How much CO2 would it be producing before the rules went into effect? Explain. c. Suppose each permit cost $6, how many permits would the firm choose to purchase. Explain. d. What if permits were just $3? If they were $10? e. Would you predict any changes to the price of the output? Explain how and why this might come about.
