1. Tax on monopoly profits. 3.2 Fair return pricing. 4. Merger reaction policy. Regulation of Monopoly. The government may wish to regulate monopolies to protect the interests of consumers. For example, monopolies have the market power to set prices higher than in competitive markets. The government can regulate monopolies through price capping, yardstick competition and preventing the growth of monopoly power. Why the Government Regulates Monopolies Prevent Excess Price. Without government regulation, monopolies could put prices above. How the Government Regulate Monopolies 1. For many newly privatised industries, such as water, electricity and gas, the government created regulatory bodies such as: OFGEM – gas and electricity marketsOFWAT – tap water.ORR – Office of rail regulator.

Amongst their functions, they are able to limit price increases. X is the amount by which they have to cut prices by in real terms.If inflation is 3% and X= 1%Then firms can increase actual prices by 3-1 = 2% RPI+/- K – for water industry In water the price cap system is RPI -/+ K.

By Jenny Ryan Many times when I’m at the grocery or drug store, I can’t resist throwing a few scented votive candles in my cart. When I’m ready to burn them, it’s easy enough to sit one on a cute little vintage china saucer, but I recently decided to try and find a fancier display solution for them. I also wanted the project to be inexpensive, and the materials used to be things I already had on hand. I was inspired by memories of making faux-stained glass in elementary school and came up with these fun little glass votive holders. This project is quick and easy, and a great way to whip up custom party décor on the cheap. Materials Tissue paper in your desired colors Mod Podge (matte finish), in a pinch you can also use school gluePaintbrush Scissors Glass containers to fit your candle(s), I used thrifted vases and wine tumblers Paper punches in various shapes Q-tips, optional Directions Step 3: Start affixing the punched-out paper shapes to the glass using your paintbrush.

Thanks to Hurricane Irene, we were holed up at home for half the weekend watching constant weather reports. So whats a girl to do with her time than complete a fun project that has been in my head for a while. Using some sculptey clay I bought a while back, I wanted to make a little key catch all plate. I've never used this stuff before so I didn't know what to expect.

Materials: Sculptey clay, rolling pin, glass bowl, key, butter knife, oven The end result isn't exactly as I hoped. Anyone master this material and have tips for me on how to improve? Earring Display. This fun little shabby chic earring stand, made from an altered picture frame, is a great way to hang and display all your beautiful, dangling earrings. I had the idea for this project after we talked about my love affair with dangly earrings and how to display them. I don’t know about you, but I just love seeing them all hanging in a row! :) The next day I made this earring frame, and it was so quick, easy, and inexpensive to put together, I knew I had to share it with you! :) I spent a grand total of $5.34 on this project. Plus I got to work with a staple gun. (Thats about as close to a power tool as I get!)

Cost: Less than $10 Time: 30 mins Supplies: picture frame, 12′ of picture wire, acrylic paint & brush, staple gun (or nails/tacks, etc) I started out with a black 8×10 picture frame from Walmart, $3. Since the frame wasn’t real wood, I was a little concerned with how it would turn out once I painted it. Next, I took a piece of wire and laid it across the back of the frame. Bottle Cap Candles. How make tiny candles using old bottle caps! Fun easy diy tutorial. these tiny candles are a really fun to make and come together quickly. AND you can up-cycle several materials in the process, which makes this a fabulous Earth Day craft :) {Earth Day is April 22} to make these colorful tiny candles, i used several materials that usually end up in a land fill: bottle caps, broken crayons, and empty soup cans. the only thing i bought to make them was the pre-waxed wicks which cost me $1.50 for a set of 12. these make a great kid craft {with supervision, of course!}

And would add a fun element to a wedding, romantic dinner, or even a fab conversation piece in your front room! How to Make Bottle Cap Candlessupplies: bottle caps, crayons {or wax}, pre-waxed wicks, soup cans, wax paper {optional}, small cooking pan, scissors, and water remove paper from crayons. you can also use candle wax if you wanted. put crayons in clean, empty soup cans. take your pre-waxed wicks and… bottle caps.

Pokémon. Bellossom | AH! Creations. While looking for a new pokemon to crochet since I’m aggravated with another one I’m creating, I decided on Bellossom. She is fun and colorful, just what I needed after being bogged down with school work. The hardest part about creating her is putting the leaves on correctly to let them form the correct shape, but other than that she is a pretty simple Pokemon to create.

Sandshrew Pattern! I made a Sandshrew! I feel like he took FOREVER, but I think that was mostly because I'm just lazy. Anyway, the pattern's relatively easy, except for the start of the head.

Sandshrew and Pokemon belong to Nintendo. Pichu Plush. July 08, 2009 This is the Pichu doll I just finished up for my youngest daughter who is probably the world's biggest Pichu fan. I must admit, Pichu has become one of my favorites as well. Pichu MATERIALS:WW yarn in light yellow and a medium blackG HookFiberfillYarn needleScraps of felt in black, red, pink and a very tiny bit of whitesewing threads to match the felt colors I tend to prefer to join my rounds, but if you prefer continuous rounds and using stitch markers, that's just as good.

Whatever is most comfortable for you. Gauge isn't an issue, just make sure that your hook, yarn and tensions result in a fairly tight stitch, to prevent the stuffing from showing through. I also recommend using the 'invisible decrease' when making 3D pieces like this. Number in ( ) at the end of each round or row, are the total number of stitches in that round or row. Special stitches used: Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6) Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12) Rnd 3: sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around (18) Make 2. Meowth Plushie. I had to do Meowth eventually. I put it off forever because I have the worst problems with mouths... and I have at least a dozen 'Meowth mouths' on my worktable that didn't make the cut. I'm still not very happy with that one, but maybe one of you talented crafters will be able to make a better one :D. I adore Meowth because he's scrappy and intelligent and just generally fun to watch in action.

As always, if you find any problems with the pattern, please let me know, I'll fix it as soon as I can and if you have any questions just post 'em :) WW yarn buff, medium brown, dark brown and small amount of gold G Hook Fiberfill White, black and red felt scraps Gauge isn't really important, just make sure that your yarn choice and hook choice result in a fairly tight stitch so that stuffing won't show through. Numbers at the end of each rnd/row in ( ) are the total number of stitches that should be in each round or row. HEAD: using buff: BODY: using buff: ARMS: using buff: make 2 TAIL: Using buff: Sneasel | AH! Creations. This one has been on my to do list for a long time now.

It’s taken me a while to build up the confidence to attempt her. (Yes it is a her, the head feather is longer on the male lol) She is really pretty easy to do, because I managed to squeeze her in between all of the assignments I had to do this past week. The trickiest part for Beau was making her yellow gems. We made them the same way we did Espeon’s, except, instead of just letting the glue pool, he had to keep working back and forth to get the glue to form a smooth oval. He gave it a little coat of paint and voila! All in all I think she turned out pretty cute.

Lapras | AH! Creations. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything. The past few weeks have been pretty busy and my felter was a little slow in getting me what I needed to finish this. When I started Lapras I meant for her to be a little bigger, but after showing the more compact model to my fiance, he said that he thought it made her seem more cute. I’ll let you be the judges for yourselves, but personally I like my little Lapras! : ) Materials: blue, grey, buff yarn white, black felt sewing needle g hook Body (blue) Round 1: sc 8 in MR Round 2: *2 sc in each sc* around (16) Round 3: *sc, 2 sc in next sc* around (24) Round 4: *sc 2, 2 sc in next sc* around (32) Round 5-8: *sc in each sc* around (32) Round 9: *sc 2, dec across next 2 sc* around (24) Round 10-13: *sc in each sc* around (24) Round 14: *sc, dec across next 2 sc* around (16) Round 15: *sc in each sc* around (16) Round 16: *sc 2, dec across next 2 sc* around (12) Round 17-18: *sc in each sc* around (12) Round 19: *sc, dec across next 2 sc* around (8) F/o.

Round 2-? Eevee Plush. I finally decided to tackle Eevee. The pictures I'm afraid don't do the doll justice at all. She's really much cuter than the pictures show. LOL Eevee can be a tough one mostly because she's all shades of brown. The 'collar' is worked a little different, but it's basic and simple, and allows you alot of room to 'arrange' it however you like. If I have one great weakness, it's doing the faces. I'm sure that all of you wonderful crafters will be able to give her a much better face, I'm afraid that faces just aren't my strong suit. If you have any problems with the pattern, please let me know, I'll fix it as soon as possible. WW yarn in brown, tan G Hook Fiberfill Small scraps of felt in dk brown, black Yarn needle sewing needle and thread to match yarn and felts (optional) FRONT LEGS (make 2): Upper leg (make 2): Rnd 1: Ch 12.

Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I was able to write up a pattern for any amigurumis I make. School kept me pretty busy this past semester and I lost some of the pattern for another pokemon I had made (Axew).

I’ll try and get the other one to you soon but in the meantime, I also finished the much requested Vaporeon. She is pretty quick to make and very posable. I have some other big projects on the way so hopefully I’ll be able to finish them before school starts again. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and has a Happy New Year. Materials: blue cotton yarn dark blue caron simply soft yarn white and cream redheart yarn black, white and light purple felt g hook stuffing glue gun Body, Head, Legs I used WolfDreamers Umbreon pattern to create these parts so I wanted to give her credit.

Tail Round 1: Sc 6 in MR Round 2: *sc in each sc* around (6) Round 3: *sc 2, 2 sc in next sc* around (8) Round 4: *sc in each sc* around (8) F/o. Raichu. I finally got another one done! Yay me! LOL Raichu has been much requested and I finally got around to making him. Parts of him are a little different than most pokemon (namely the ears and tail) and the instructions look much more difficult than it really is.

This is definitely one of the pokemon I would recommend for those with at least a little experience in making dolls, but with patience even a beginner could manage it :) As always, if you find anything in the pattern that's confusing or if you find a typo, let me know and I'll fix it asap. WW yarn in yellow-orange, light yellow or cream, dark brown G Hook Fiberfill Yarn needle Small scraps of black and white felt sewing threads to match yarn, and sewing needle The actual size of your hook doesn't really matter, as long as your hook and yarn choices result in tight even stitches.

The numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row, indicates the total number of stitches that should be in that round or row. ARMS (make 2) LEGS: (make 2) Pokemon Lucario Look-Alike.
