GOVERNMENT PURCHASES: Expenditures on final goods and services (that is, gross domestic product) undertaken by the government sector. Government purchases are used to operate the government (administrative salaries, etc.) and to provide public goods (national defense, highways, etc.). Government purchases do not include other government spending for transfer payments. These are expenditures on final goods by all three levels of government: federal, state, and local governments. Government purchases are financed by a mix of taxes and borrowing.

    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.
