INFLATION: A persistent increase in the average price level in the economy. Inflation occurs when the AVERAGE price level (that is, prices IN GENERAL) increases over time. This does NOT mean that ALL prices increase the same, nor that ALL prices necessarily increase. Some prices might increase a lot, others a little, and still other prices decrease or remain unchanged. Inflation results when the AVERAGE of these assorted prices follows an upward trend. Inflation is the most common phenomenon associated with the price level.

    Market Shocks

    Our goal in this lesson is to investigate disruptions of the market. Specifically, we want to use the market model previously developed, to examine the why and how of market shocks. What causes market shocks? How to markets react when shocked? These are just a few of the questions we want to consider. If the truth be known, markets in the real world don't remain at the same locations for very long. They move. They adjust. Prices change. Quantities change. We can understand these real world market changes, by analyzing what happens to market model when it's shocked.

    • The first unit of this lesson lays the foundation of analyzing market shorts with an overview of the adjustment process and the particular role played by the ceteris paribus assumption.
    • In the second unit, we review the five determinants of demand and five determinants of supply, because these are the are what cause market disruptions.
    • We then move into the actual adjustment process in the third unit, examining the four basic disruptions involving a shift in either the demand or supply curve.
    • The fourth unit builds on these four basic shifts to exam four complex shifts that have simultaneous shifts in both the demand and supply curves.
    • We end this lesson in the fifth unit by relating these market shocks to the fundamental notion of cause and effect inherent in the study of economic science.

    LAND

    The naturally occurring resources used in the production of goods and services, including the land itself; the minerals and nutrients in the ground; the water, wildlife, and vegetation on the surface; and the air above. Land also includes the productive dimensions of space and accessibility. This is one of four basic categories of resources, or factors of production. The other three are labor, capital, and entrepreneurship.
