If Content is King- The Consumer is Queen!
The Producer is King
Classical Economics (Riccardo, Marshall) builds its model on price being the dominant factor of consumer decision making. Behavioral economics builds on this structure, but introduces other factors that effect consumption. Business marketers take consumers and turn them into customers.
I will argue:
behavioral economics turns consumers into customers;
customer centric strategies are neccesary but not sufficient;
you can never own the customer, but you can own brands;
classical economics still stands, producers are market takers;
opportunities lie in picking up the consumer surplus;
the producer is king.
The Classical Case
The producer is a price taker and price is the dominant factor of consumer demand . In the case of global capitalism where monopolies of price fixing oligopolies are a major factor of production, then the supply curve is

Overview
In this section you are basically tested on algebra from grade 10 and grade 11.
IEB/NSC will test you how you can solve for a variable and draw graphs of given functions.
You need to know Linear Functions, Parabola, Hyperbole and Exponential.
Linear Functions | y = mx + c |
Parabola | y = a( x+p)^{2} + q |
Hyperbole | y = a/(x+p) + q |
Exponential | y = a . b ^{x+p} + q |
Identify each type of equation
Draw a rough sketch of each Graph
Calculate possible x and y-intercepts
Write down the equations of any asymptotes
Write down the equation of the axis of symemmetry of a parabola and the coordinates of the turning point.

Introduction
Under the Apartheid Dictatorship in 20th Century South Africa, all works by Marx were banned, for their seditious nature.
Dictators and Capitalists despise Marx, because he threatens that their dominance is not permanent.
Marx in 1860 proposed that Capitalism would eventually destroy itself. It would destroy itself by collecting the means of production into an ever smaller group, until the Capitalists had no choice but to attack each other to keep growing.
In the period 1913 to 1937 this is what happened and two world wars were unleashed. Capitalism is however resilient and Marx was proved wrong. From the brink of destruction, Capitalism has pulled back and regrouped. Today in 2017 we are back to the 1913 numbers in terms of weal

Intern is the basic Rank of all members entering the system for free. If you have come to the right place you are likely to be:
A recent High School Graduate, not going to a regular College or University. You cannot afford the trip or the costs of University Education, or you have become disillusioned with the 20th Century style offerings of traditional Universities.
You have an undergraduate Degree or part of a Degree in a 99% future like Engineering or Law. You need the Academy to give you the Business Supplement.
You really want to do an MBA, but you don't yet meet the criteria. The Academy follows a similar path to an MBA, but can take as much as 4 years to complete.
You are working in a business, but feel stuck. You want the academy to help you find a way out of the rut and into the 1%.
You are a business graduate at a Non English Speaking University and you want to learn Business in a English context.
