Natural Gas: Pro- Less expensive than gasoline  Con- Not many vehicles available for its use. 

Propane:  Pro- Potentially lower toxic emissions  Con- less readily available than gas and diesel

Biodiesel:  Pro- Safer to handle  Con-currently more expensive

Student 2 Response

Fuel does a car good!

Hello Class,

The three fuel sources for vehicle transportation I chose were Ethanol, Natural Gas and Biodiesel.

Ethanol can be made from plants such as corn, sugar or grass (U.S. Department of Energy, 2012). The nice thing about this is that the fuel is renewable due to the source. However, a disadvantage is that it has a lower energy content so it will not yield as many miles to the gallon requiring more be made on a regular basis.

Natural Gas is one of the cleanest burning fuels (U.S. Department of Energy, 2012). The reason it is so clean is that it emits 50 percent less carbon dioxide. However, the downside is that it creates what they call greenhouse gas and that is a great deal more harmful to the environment.

Biodiesel is a form of diesel fuel made from vegetable oil, animal fat, deep fryer grease. This fuel will create fewer emissions and be burned in it raw from. The problem with this is that it is very limited and the way it can be distributed is also limited (U.S. Department of Energy, 2012).

Systematic risk evaluates the probability and extent of negative consequences to the larger body. For example, the government has a record of intervening in the event of a probable bank failure; the government’s larger concern is the negative impact on bank customers. Some call this a government bail-out.

Discuss the effect on stock market investor confidence should bank customers, individuals and businesses alike, lose access to savings and undergo a loss of future purchasing power due to a bank failure.


Professor and class,

If people lost access to their money there would be a collapse. The stock market would feel the effect in that their funding would be gone. Investors will then act leery on new avenues and will hold on to their money rather then investing. Recessions and depressions can be created by this type of economic downfall. We saw one just 7 years ago and to this day there are some areas in the state of Idaho and other parts of the country that haven't recovered. It is the assurance banks and other financial institutions must give to us that our funds are not only safe, but accessible.


Prof and Class,

  If the people were to lose access to savings and undergo a loss of future purchasing power due to a bank failure. This would in turn have a massive impact of increasingly negative consequences for the economy at large. Naturally this would be dependent on the size of the banking system rather than a local or regional banking franchise. However, no matter the size. Such an event would be more devastating to a banks more valuable asset. Their customers!

  “Customers can have a complicated relationship with their bank. Checking, savings, loans, mortgages, safe deposit boxes and all the other services banks provide become a routine part of our lives. A disruption in service can be more than a hassle. It can mean late payments, running out of cash or no access to important documents.” (Bruce, Bankrate 2015). 

  Moreover, I suspect that the primary reason for a bank closure is a combination of a loss in investor confidence and the mishandling of stock and or assets by the banks management.

Thank you,

P. Harris
