The article The End of Bureaucracy describes Haier’s design. You are to look at this design from the perspective of three topics we’ve covered to date: structure, power & politics, and organizational culture.
Format: Double spaced, type about the size of this one.
Length: Five to seven pages. This is just a guideline. You may deviate from it. By not too much on the low end.

Each is worth a third of the exercise grade.
1) Structure
Start with a discussion of Haier’s design from the perspective of the organizational structure lecture (limit yourself to the discussion of organizational types). This should be relatively easy because the article’s set up of discussion of Haier’s structure ties in nicely with the lecture. Explain your answers.
Follow-up with a discussion of Haier’s structure in terms of the issues raised and the recommendations provided in at least TWO of the other readings on organizational structure. Are the issues relevant? If they are: Does Haier’s design resolve them, make them worst, have no effect on them? Are the recommendations made incorporated into Haier’s design? If not, should they be? Explain your answers.
Note: You may include material on work groups/teams if you think it relevant.

Greg is a novice RPN who recently started practicing on a busy medical unit. Greg’s co-worker, Sang-ki, asks him to obtain signed consent for a blood transfusion from her client. Greg informs Sangki that he has no experience with blood transfusions and does not know much about them. Sang-ki tells Greg that he does not need to explain the procedure to the client; he only needs to witness the signature. Which is the correct response?

A.
He is unable to inform the client of the risks and benefits of the procedure, hence should not witness consent



B.
Greg may witness the signature; he only needs to ensure that it is the correct patient signing the document



C.
Only a physician or nurse practitioner can explain and obtain consent for treatments, hence should not witness consent

D.
Greg should witness the consent, but ensure that he documents his discomfort

You work for a healthcare organization. Attackers are exfiltrating user personal identification data from a critial server at the rate of 1GB per minute. The server also monitors and operates critical patient life saving equipment. You have the opportunity to capture forensic data that would definitely lead to the capture and successful prosecution of the perpetrators, but it would take an hour to image the server's hard drive or 30 minutes to migrate the server tasks to another server. If you shutdown the server to stop the attack, you jeopardize patient life and safety, and attacker's tools will wipe out all forensics evidence that would allow catching and prosecuting attackers. What should you do?

Consider a game with two-player (living in the same room) where each one of them (with a bequest level of $5000) may (or may not) independently invest $1000 that would help produce a public good https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1v5eRs0_fw&t=31s. So $1000 is the minimum requirement to produce that public good, an air cleanser for example) that is valued at $1500 by each player. Do you think the public good would be produced in such a
scenario.

Two siblings, Alice and Bob, found two $10 bills in the street. Their mom decides to play a game with Alice and Bob to determine how to allocate the money between the siblings. In this game, Alice and Bob simultaneously and independently announce how much they want. The amount each can announce is either 0$ or 10$ or 20$.

Their monetary rewards are determined as follows: -

If the sum of their announcement is less than or equal to 20$, then they both receive their individual announcement as a monetary reward. -

If the sum of their announcement is greater than 20$, then their mom keeps the money and siblings do not receive any monetary reward.

Suppose that each sibling cares about their own monetary reward and also partially that of other sibling’s monetary reward. In particular, each sibling’s payoff equals their own monetary reward + 20% of other sibling’s monetary reward.

Example 1: If Alice and Bob both announce $10, then: Alice’s payoff is 10+0.2*10=$12 and Bob’s payoff is 10+0.2*10=$12.

Example 2: If Alice and Bob both announce $0, then: Alice’s payoff is 0+0.2*0=$0 and Bob’s payoff is 0+0.2*0=$0.

a) Using the above information, present the normal-form representation of the game via a payoff matrix.

b) Determine whether any of the sibling has a strictly dominated strategy and explain why.

c) Find all Nash equilibria of the above game.

Now, suppose that their mom changes the game and let the siblings make their announcement sequentially. Then assume that Bob announces first, and Alice announces thereafter.

d) Which sibling makes an announcement first?

e) Based on your answer to part (d), present the extensive-form representation of the game. What is your prediction regarding the outcome of the game?

The monopolist’s inverse demand curve is P=180-3Q , and marginal cost and average cost are as follows: MC=AC=30.

Based on the above information, answer the following questions:

a) What is the seventh digit of your Deakin student ID number and therefore which of the above scenarios apply to you? Based on this scenario, answer all the parts below.

b) Diagrammatically represent the monopolist’s demand, MR, and MC curves. (Note: You must make use of the equations when drawing your diagram and appropriately mark the lengths of relevant intercepts)

c) Calculate the monopolist’s profit maximising price and quantity, and show them on your diagram for part (b). Show your workings.

d) Show the monopolist’s profit on your diagram for part (c). Calculate the consumer surplus and monopolist’s producer surplus attained.

e) Now, suppose that the monopolist decides to practice perfect price discrimination. Determine the profit maximising quantity, and show your working.

f) Critically analyse the accuracy of the following statement. “The single-price monopolist achieves the socially efficient outcome by earning a higher level of profit compared to the perfectly price discriminating monopolist.”

Suppose that a firm’s Cobb-Douglas production function involves two inputs, labour (L) and capital (K) and is represented by strictly convex isoquants. The firm is currently producing 400 units of output by hiring 25 units of labour and 10 units of capital.

- labour is half as expensive as capital to hire, and

- at the current input combination, the marginal productivity of labour is twice that of the marginal productivity of capital, i.e., MPl = 2MPk

Based on the above information, answer the following questions:

a) What is the third digit of your Deakin student ID number and which of the above scenarios apply to you? Based on this scenario, answer all the parts below.

b) Suppose that labour is kept on the horizontal axis while capital is kept on the vertical axis. What is the absolute MRTS at the current input combination? Show your working.

c) Is the firm currently minimizing cost of producing 400 units of output? If not, determine the best course of action for the firm to produce 400 units of output if it wants to minimize its costs. Explain your answer. [Note: You do not need to do any calculations or provide an exact numerical answer]

A typical low-income family has $600 monthly income. They allocate their income between food and other goods. Assume that the price of one unit of other goods is $1 and the price of one unit of food is $6. Each household has usual shaped strictly convex preferences between food and other goods. The government is planning to provide food support to households with low-income. You have been asked to analyze the following two alternative plans designed for this purpose.

Plan 1. Each family will receive a voucher that can be used to purchase 100 units of food for free. The voucher can only be used to purchase food.

Plan 2. The government will provide a subsidy to low-income families, so that they would only pay $2 per unit of food.

a) Draw the budget constraint for a typical household before the introduction of any government support plan while keeping food on the horizontal axis.

b) Reproduce your diagram from (a) and show how a household’s budget constraint changes under Plan 1. Briefly explain your work.

c) Reproduce your diagram from (a) and show how a household’s budget constraint changes under Plan 2. Briefly explain your work.

Suppose that a household is offered Plan 2 and it is observed that they consume 150 units of food under that plan.

i. Reproduce your diagram from part (c) and show this choice on it.

ii. How much is the household spending on food and how much are they spending on other goods at their optimal bundle under Plan 2?

iii. If this household were offered Plan 1 instead of Plan 2, would they be better off and would they consume more or less food? Support your answer by doing further diagrammatic work and explanations.
