Identify three macroeconomic variables in the United States that impact the supply and/or demand of the product or service produced by the company you selected for your microeconomic/macroeconomic analysis papers. Interpret the trends of the three selected macroeconomic variables for the past three years and evaluate how these trends will likely impact the supply and demand of your chosen product or service as well as the financial performance of your chosen company. The macroeconomic variables that will affect the Walmart’s pharmacy business are unemployment, inflation, and GDP. Unemployment is defined as the total number of adults (aged 16 years or older) who are willing to work and who are actively looking for work but have not found a job [Rog16]. Unemployment, over the past 3 years, has been decreasing according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. It has gone down from 5.5% in February of 2015 to 4.1% in February of 2018 as shown in the chart below [USB18].

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
