X: The standard abbreviation for exports produced by the foreign sector and purchased by the domestic economy, especially when used in the study of macroeconomics. This abbreviation is most often seen in the aggregate expenditure equation, AE = C + I + G + (X - M), where C, I, G, and (X - M) represent expenditures by the four macroeconomic sectors, household, business, government, and foreign. The United States, for example, sells a lot of the stuff produced within our boundaries to other countries, including wheat, beef, cars, furniture, and, well, almost every variety of product you care to name.

    Factor Demand

    • The first unit of this lesson, Background, begins this lesson by laying the foundations for the study of factor demand.
    • In the second unit, Derived Demand, we see how the demand for a factor of production is based on the demand for the good it produces.
    • The third unit, The Curve, then derives the factor demand curve, which is the relation between the price employers are willing to pay and the quantity demanded.
    • In the fourth unit, Determinants, we examine the three key determinants that shift the factor demand curve -- product price, factor productivity, and other factor prices.
    • The fifth and final unit, Taking Stock, then closes this lesson with a review of factor demand and a preview of factor market analysis in other lessons.

    PART-TIME WORKERS

    People who are willing and able to work full-time (over 35 hours per week), but are forced to work less because employers do not need their productive efforts. While part-time workers officially have jobs, and are officially included in the "employed" category when the official unemployment rate is calculated, their labor resources are really only partially unemployed. A person working 20 hours a week, who is willing and able to work 40 hours a week, really should be considered as "half employed."
