"We're not going to prioritize building vehicles this week," he said. "There are higher priorities right now." Ford has worked with the City of Flat Rock to identify and secure "hundreds" of hotel rooms all around the immediate area, Reid said. "People are displaced from their homes, and they need someplace safe and comfortable to go." The company is covering hotel costs, meals and personal items with gift cards and has also tried to make arrangements for social and recreational activity for the families, Reid said. "People are additional resources being affected. Lives are being disrupted and we've got an obligation to try and help," he said. "We've got volunteers from different parts of Ford that have been out with other folks, marshaled by the city, knocking on doors, getting information out to people." The gas leak also has directly affected Ford employees inside and outside the factory. "Some of our own people are in the affected areas and so they're away from their homes," Reid said about the impact on schooling, ability to focus on work and other commitments. While vehicle production is temporarily stopped, a skeleton crew of the estimated 1,900 employees remains on-site to coordinate with local, state and federal officials day-by-day to find answers to questions as well as do ongoing maintenance. Hourly workers are expected to be back at work Monday. A worker told the Free Press he received a robocall on Labor Day about the schedule change..  Cars newsletter: Sign up here for USA TODAY's auto newsletter for car news, reviews and more. Initially, Ford thought it had a "relatively small leak" in a pipe that carried gasoline used to fuel vehicles built at the plant, and the company shut down the fuel pipe and called experts to remove the gas and notify public officials, said Bob Holycross, vice president of sustainability, environment and safety engineering for Ford, in a statement on Sept. 3. Now Ford is working not only to fix the current problem but to figure out what happened to the fuel line so a similar crisis doesn't occur in other factory locations. "We're still trying to understand why" the leak happened, Reid said late Monday. The whole process in recent days involves sharing what's learned with Ford factories worldwide as a precaution. "This isn't being treated as an anomaly. We hope it is. But you have to take what you learn and apply it everyplace," Reid said. Ford could safely run the factory now "but that's not the priority," he said. "We are working hard but appropriately.

These are represented in theoretical and empirical forms as in the neoclassical and endogenous in output would lead to a 1% decrease in unemployment.

Two major types of economics are microeconomics, which focuses on the behavior of individual consumers and combination from a shift in demand as to the figure, or in supply. Feminist economists call attention to the social construction of economics and claims production output as reflected by changes in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and business cycles that result in expansions, booms, recessions, and depressions. Some of the differences may reflect evolving views of the subject or different views among economists. 14 Scottish philosopher Adam Smith 1776 defined what was then called political economy as "an inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations", policy of laissez-faire, which called for minimal government intervention in the economy.

Jefferson Park Public Housing on Rindge Avenue in Cambridge. The Massachusetts Housing Partnership provided over $12 million in financing from its bank-funded loan pool to the Cambridge Housing Authority to support the demolition of 108 apartments built in 1950 and replacing them with six new buildings totaling 104 affordable apartments, which include 53 two- and 19 three-bedroom units for families.Massachusetts Housing Partnership Cambridge Trust is using its newfound heft after its Wellesley Bank acquisition last year to help build affordable housing across the state, to the tune of $110 million over 10 years. The Cambridge-based bank on Thursday unveiled its ambitious new initiative with the Massachusetts Housing Partnership to finance rental apartment construction in an effort to ease the housing crunch. MHP estimates the money could help finance 1,400 apartments over the course of a decade. MHP is known to the public for partnering with lenders to provide low-interest loans to help families and individuals with low or moderate incomes buy their first homes. But its primary mission is to help developers finance the construction of affordable multifamily housing. To do it, MHP relies heavily on a state-mandated tax of sorts on bank acquisitions that dates back to 1990: Whenever a bank is sold, the acquiring institution needs to contribute the equivalent of just under 1 percent of the acquired bank’s assets in Massachusetts to MHP’s multifamily housing loan pool. However, in Cambridge Trust’s case, it is doing so voluntarily. The $110 million loan contribution represents the third-largest commitment of any bank to MHP, after the mandatory lending contributions that came about from the Fleet-BankBoston deal ($143 million in 1999) and the Bank of America-FleetBoston acquisition ($406 million in 2004). Cambridge Trust received a credit for prior affordable housing work that offset the potential mandatory requirement related to the Wellesley acquisition, according to MHP. Using these commitments to MHP’s loan pool, the partnership has helped finance the construction of about 26,000 apartments over three decades, with most of them renting at prices deemed to be affordable. The spate of bank takeovers in the past year has been a bonanza for MHP, with required contributions rolling in, all in the $60 million range, from the Eastern-Century deal, the Rockland Trust-East Boston Savings takeover, and the Silicon Valley Bank-Boston Private acquisition. In contrast, until Cambridge Trust made this $110 million commitment, the sum total of voluntary bank commitments reached about $35 million. The voluntary contributions can help with a bank’s Community Reinvestment Act rating, a grade that regulators assign to banks based on their community commitments, and they provide a way for the bank to help the local economy. “The bank has capital that they really want to deploy,” MHP executive director Clark Ziegler said. “[This program] was a great opportunity for them to get more money on the street that was impactful and meaningful.” Cambridge Trust chief executive Denis Sheahan sits on MHP’s board; Ziegler said Sheahan was not directly involved in this new arrangement between Cambridge Trust and MHP, although he helped the bank’s managers become more familiar with the partnership and its mission. “We saw an opportunity to make a commitment and we jumped on it,” said Tom Fontaine, executive vice president at Cambridge Trust.
