## One of Marcus Welby Hospital ‘s (MWH) competitors established a successful IPA-model HMO two years ago. Fearing loss of patients, MWH is forming the Marcus Welby Managed Care Network (the Network).

One of Marcus Welby Hospital ‘s (MWH) competitors established a successful IPA-model HMO two years ago. Fearing loss of patients, MWH is forming the Marcus Welby Managed Care Network (the Network). The objective is to sign up a number of physicians, mainly in primary care but also in common specialties, and then to market this network to these two sources: (1) large employers who provide health insurance to their workers on a self-insured basis; and (2) large regional or national insurance companies (such as Blue Cross) who then offer the network to their customers.

The Network is approaching each physician group individually and asking them to sign up nonexclusively, leaving them free to sign up with other networks or HMOs. The contract excerpts on pages 507 and following contain some common sticking points in these negotiations. Read each pairing of contract options and determine what is at stake. Then, assume the position of lawyer/negotiator for either (a) the Network or (b) a physician group who wants to sign up but is concerned about the details.

## Which of the following statements regarding a 30-year monthly payment amortized mortgage with a nominal interest rate of 10% is CORRECT

Question 1

- Which of the following statements regarding a 30-year monthly payment amortized mortgage with a nominal interest rate of 10% is CORRECT?
Answer

The monthly payments will decline over time. A smaller proportion of the last monthly payment will be interest, and a larger proportion will be principal, than for the first monthly payment. The total dollar amount of principal being paid off each month gets smaller as the loan approaches maturity. The amount representing interest in the first payment would beæhigheræif the nominal interest rate were 7% rather than 10%. Exactly 10% of the first monthly payment represents interest.

### Question 2

- Which of the following statements is CORRECT?
Answer

A time line is not meaningful unless all cash flows occur annually. Time lines are useful for visualizing complex problems prior to doing actual calculations. Time lines cannot be constructed in situations where some of the cash flows occur annually but others occur quarterly. Time lines cannot be constructed for annuities where the payments occur at the beginning of the periods. Some of the cash flows shown on a time line can be in the form of annuity payments, but none can be uneven amounts.

### Question 3

- Which of the following statements is CORRECT?
Answer

The cash flows for an ordinary (or deferred) annuity all occur at the beginning of the periods. If a series of unequal cash flows occurs at regular intervals, such as once a year, then the series is by definition an annuity. The cash flows for an annuity due must all occur at the ends of the periods. The cash flows for an annuity must all be equal, and they must occur at regular intervals, such as once a year or once a month. If some cash flows occur at the beginning of the periods while others occur at the ends, then we have what the textbook defines as aævariableannuity.

- You plan to invest some money in a bank account.æ Which of the following banks provides you with the highest effective rate of interest?
Answer

Bank 1; 6.1% with annual compounding. Bank 2; 6.0% with monthly compounding. Bank 3; 6.0% with annual compounding. Bank 4; 6.0% with quarterly compounding. Bank 5; 6.0% with daily (365-day) compounding.

### Question 5

- You are considering two equally risky annuities, each of which pays $5,000 per year for 10 years.æ Investment ORD is an ordinary (or deferred) annuity, while Investment DUE is an annuity due.æ Which of the following statements is CORRECT?
Answer

The present value of ORD must exceed the present value of DUE, but the future value of ORD may be less than the future value of DUE. The present value of DUE exceeds the present value of ORD, while the future value of DUE is less than the future value of ORD. The present value of ORD exceeds the present value of DUE, and the future value of ORD also exceeds the future value of DUE. The present value of DUE exceeds the present value of ORD, and the future value of DUE also exceeds the future value of ORD. If the going rate of interest decreases from 10% to 0%, the difference between the present value of ORD and the present value of DUE would remain constant.

## A firm that sells e-books books in digital

A firm that sells e-books books in digital form downloadable from the Internet sells all e-books relating to do-it-yourself topics (homeæplumbing, gardening, and so on) at the same price. At present, the company canæearnæa maximum annual profit of $25,000 when it sells 10,000 copies within a years time. The firm incurs a 50-cent expense each time a consumer downloads a copy, but the company must spend $100,000 per year developing new editions of the e-books. The company has determined that it would earn zero economic profits if price were equal to average total cost, and in this case it could sell 20,000 copies. Under marginal cost pricing, it could sell 100,000 copies. a. In the short run, what is the profit-maximizing price of e-books relating to do-it-yourself topics? b. At the profit-maximizing quantity, what is the average total cost of producing e-books?
