“Belonging” is the overarching theme of Week 7’s materials. Michele Wallace navigates her perspectives of belonging within Black racial consciousness and Black feminist circles. The late, great bell hooks analyzes belonging in relation to mainstream (white) feminist theory and praxis (practice). Author Toni Morrison often complicates various explorations of belonging in community, family, and self through her novels, which she discusses at length in the video interview in the Week 7 folder. What are some points at which you see the perspectives of these three women meeting/connecting across their discussions, particularly as they regard Black women?
The rules are designed to reflect real world dynamics aswell as keep the playing field level.
1. Purchasea car. You must screen shoot theadvertised car and the advertised price PLUS 10% is the initial purchase priceof the car. NO SALVAGE TITLE cars areallowed to be bought. Assume you willfinance the whole purchase at 6.5% financing. There are plenty of good sites for this such as Cargurus, Vroom,Carvana, etc. The screenshot mustinclude Sales Price, Mileage, Trim model, and vehicle history. The Car cannot have an accident on itsvehicle history. Car must be purchasedwithin 50 miles of White Plains (New York).
2. Cash flow projection for 5 years. As the car gets older theoretically theincome becomes less however I am going to assume inflation will offsetthat. Mileage assumption per year is16k. So for 5 years you will add 80kmiles to the car. Therefore, your annualincome will be the same for 5 years. TuroCalculator use Fort Lee NJ Price.
3. You must give a Net Present Value on thisinvestment. Your terminal value will be huge determining factor on how much theinvestment ultimately yields. The Kelley Blue Book value projected age willbe your reference. Your trim and optionlevel MUST match the car roughly for Kelly Blue Book Valuation and forcondition you will pick GOOD. Now wehave to project how much a car you have today will be worth 5 years fromnow. No one can exactly predict thefuture so you will have to do a projection based on that cars age when you dosell it after 5 years. For instance if you purchase today (Feb 2022) a 2016Merc C300 4 matic sedan, you will sell the car Feb 2027. At that time the car will then be 11 yearsold. So go to Kelly Blue Book and findthe value of the 11 year old version of the car today with the mileageassumptions of another 80k miles from when you bought the car. You will find that the resale value is a hugecomponent of the cars true cost of ownership. So choose the car wisely.
4. Turo has lots of good tools to help you find agood car to buy for return on investment. However, ROI is not a NPV analysis and it is the NPV analysis. https://turo.com/us/en/top-vehicles-index
