When Kirk and Elisa formed their general partnership, Kirk contributed 90 percent of the capital, and Elisa contributed 10 perce
nt. In the partnership agreement, they did not specify the percentage of the profits each partner would receive. In the first year of their partnership, they earned $35,000 in profits. Elisa's share of the profits is ________.a. $3,500. b. $10,000.
Elise's share of the profit would be half the amount of profit earned. This is because in business, in an absent of an agreement, the partners share the profit and losses equally. The emphasis here is placed on the partners not specifying the percentages of profits to be received by each partner in the agreement.
In a situation where the partner who contributed more to the business wants to earn just as much from the profit, he or she must put in place AN AGREEMENT stating the percentages of profit each of the partner would receive.
When an economy is at long-run equilibrium it means the employment rate is equivalent to the natural employment rate, the actual price level being equal to the objected or anticipated price level and the GDP is at the potential output. Therefore, an increase in consumer expenditure will cause an increase in the price level but will have no effect of the GDP in the long run. The demand curve will shift rightward and increase the out put in the long run.
