when the economy is doing well how does it reflect on businesses?
Weegy: There are a large number of variables or characteristics used to gauge the health of an economy, with four of them usually referred to as the key macroeconomic variables: aggregate output or income, the unemployment rate, the inflation rate, [ and the interest rate. There are, however, numerous additional measures or variables that are collected and used to understand the behavior of an economy. In the United States, for example, additional measures include: the index of leading economic indicators (which gives an idea where the economy is headed in the near future); retail sales (which indicate the strength of consumer demand in the economy); factory orders, especially for big ticket items (which indicate the future growth in output, since the orders will have to be filled); housing starts (robust increase in housing starts are usually taken as a sign of good growth in the future); the consumer confidence index (which indicates how likely consumers are to make favorable decisions to buy both durable and nondurable goods, services, and homes). Other variables tracked are more innocuous than the ones included in the preceding list, such as: aluminum production, steel production, paper and paperboard production, industrial production, hourly earnings, weekly earnings, factory shipments, orders for durable goods, new factory orders, new-home sales, existing-home sales, business inventories, initial jobless claims, help-wanted advertising, purchasing manager's survey, and the foreign trade deficit.

social cultural concepts are?
Weegy: Sociocultural evolution(ism) is an umbrella term for theories of cultural evolution and social evolution, describing how cultures and societies have changed over time. [ Note that "sociocultural evolution" is not an equivalent of "sociocultural development" (unified processes of differentiation and integration involving increases in sociocultural complexity), as sociocultural evolution also encompasses sociocultural transformations accompanied by decreases of complexity (degeneration) as well as ones not accompanied by any significant changes of sociocultural complexity (cladogenesis).[1] Thus, sociocultural evolution can be defined as "the process by which structural reorganization is affected through time, eventually producing a form or structure which is qualitatively different from the ancestral form." ] (More)

why is it important that the marketing and sales department working together as a team?
Weegy: Having worked in several marketing departments I have seen firsthand how adversarial the relationship between sales and marketing can be. [ Neither gives the other much respect, with common comments on bloated budgets, reckless spending and that they “just don’t understand us.” While entrenched in a corporate marketing environment I have done my share of the above and confess to being guilty on all counts. But even then I knew that these two teams needed to work together to be effective. But when I say work together I’m not talking about creating one department or having common goals and objectives. These are two separate departments and each has its own purpose: Sales exists to make sales Marketing exists to make the sales process easier so the company makes more sales The entire point of any business is to sell. There is no function more important than selling, because without sales there will be no business. But the sales process needs to be effective and the support it receives from marketing is essential to a company’s success. ] (More)
