Name: Date: Economics in the Headlines Process: Read the summary below of an article from MSNBC news, keeping in mind the factors that will change demand or supply for a product. Then answer the questions below. “McDonald's Uses Dolls to Woo Girls” (summary of MSNBC news online report) For three weeks in April 2002, McDonald's Corporation incorporated miniature Madame Alexander dolls as toys in the Happy Meals sold to girls. Madame Alexander dolls are collected internationally and are known for their high quality. The Director of Marketing for McDonald's explained that while young boys and girls eat at McDonald's in comparable numbers, by the ages of 11-12, girls become more weight-conscious and make different food choices, which tend to continue into adulthood. McDonald's hoped that by introducing the dolls, more girls would be enticed to eat at McDonald's, increasing the company's customer base long into the future.

    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.
