IMPLEMENTATION LAG: In the context of economic policies, the time between the realization that a shock to the economy has occurred and corrective government action responding to the shock. This is one of several policy lags that limit the effectiveness of stabilization policies designed to correct business-cycle fluctuations. This is also one of two inside lags. The other is a recognition lag. The implementation lag, which is often divided into decision and action lags, emerges due to the time it takes for government leaders to debate, discuss, and decide on the appropriate policy then get the appropriate government agencies to launch the policy. The implementation lag is usually shorter for monetary policy than fiscal policy.

GRAY SKITTERY
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who probably suffers from a lengthy list of phobias and neuroses. Family and friends refuse to play any games with you that require making choices or decisions. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time strolling around a discount warehouse buying club wanting to buy either a tall storage cabinet with five shelves and a secure lock or a birthday greeting card for your grandmother. Be on the lookout for cardboard boxes. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter L, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 791714. Your preferred shopping venue is mail order catalogs. Your special symbol is the question mark (?).


Is this You?

As a Gray Skittery, you are ambivalent, indecisive, and uncertain. You are in a constant struggle between the forces of demand and supply, production and consumption, good and evil... and you're losing the battle. You have trouble making decisions and choosing from among the seemingly infinite number of options that you perpetually face. Your shopping experiences are inevitably confusing.


This isn't me! What am I?
EMPLOYED

The condition in which a resource (especially labor) is actively engaged in a productive activity usually in exchange for an explicit factor payment (such as wage or salary). This general condition forms the conceptual basis for one of the three categories used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) to classify an individual's labor force status. The specific BLS classification is employed persons. The other two BLS categories are unemployed persons and not in the labor force.

Taming Our Beastly FEDERAL DEFICIT

It's almost impossible to take a leisurely stroll around the economy without crashing headlong into the federal deficit. It doesn't take a microscope to see it bulging from the windows and doors of the Sylvester J. Peabody Federal Office Building as we pass by. It's a monstrous beast that seems to be growing by the minute. But is the federal deficit really as ghoulish and gruesome as drawn by political cartoonists? Should we make a detour of our pedestrian trek to avoid the beast? Considering it's size, is avoidance even possible. To answer these question, let's consider the pluses and minuses of our federal deficit.

Much of the $15 million used by the United States to finance the Louisiana Purchase from France was borrowed from European banks.
