1. I believe the form of fixed price contracting that would benefit the small business owner the most would be the fixed price contract with economic price adjustment, allowing for shifts as a result of the changes in material costs, meaning that the individual has the potential to spend less on materials if the cost of materials goes down, and decreases in labor during contract performance, meaning those who work less would get paid less, as opposed to a flat rate for their labor charges, and those who work more are able to substantially benefit as a result of their time spent on the project (, 2013).

2. The small business owner may take advantage of economic price adjustment by increasing the amount of labor put into a particular project, allowing for the business to gain more money, while buying the materials at a lower cost when they are on sale, and then charging for the materials based upon their non-sale pricing (, 2013).
