    Abstract

    This paper introduces ideas on how to incorporate the internet and spreadsheets as research tools in the study of the effects of consolidation, specifically the effects of consolidation in the banking industry. A homework assignment is described that can be used in any course dealing with consolidation (e.g. managerial economics or money and banking). The homework assignment outlines procedures that can be used to: access insured commercial bank data for a specific state, create a chart to plot return on assets by the natural log of total assets, and run a regression of return on assets as a function of the natural log of total assets using Microsoft Excel.
