The purpose of this paper is to provide a concise and clear economic analysis of our company; Gateway. In order to form a thorough economic analysis several aspects of Gateway will be described. These aspects are our firm’s history, product line, consumer base of its industry, production process, cost of manufacture and overall pricing of its products. By also analyzing the position that Gateway holds in its industry and the challenges it must overcome to successfully compete against other computing manufacturing companies. Gateway’s history will provide a base context for future analysis. The variation of Gateway’s product line will develop our understanding of our firm’s consumers through analyzing its consumer demand, cost, pricing and production decisions. By applying the microeconomics we are able to understand the manufacturing process and the production costs involved. Through analyzing Gateway’s merger with eMachines we are able to explain how Gateway’s production process has changed and its costs decreased.
