According to the "January theory," if the stock market is up for the month of January, it will be up for the year. If it is down in January, it will be down for the year.

1. How do externalities drive the U.S. and E.U. automotive markets respectively? 2. Why would someone use the Coase Theorem to minimize the impact of externalities? 3.

Looking to get some help on better understanding externalities and Cease Theorem work in real-world examples and how they are applied. For example, if BP drills for oil in the Pacific Ocean, the neighbor is having a loud party, and if I buy a car that has added the safety features which help prevent the death of drivers and passengers in case of an accident.
