 AmosWEB means Economics with a Touch of Whimsy!
 SAVING FUNCTION: The positive relation between household saving and household disposable income. The saving function is commonly presented as the saving line or propensity-to-saving line. The slope of this line is the marginal propensity to save, which is the proportion of any additional income used for saving. The saving function and the marginal propensity to saving play key roles in the multiplier and accelerator concepts. Because consumption is the difference between disposable income and saving, the consumption function is a complementary relation to the saving function.

Supply

This supply lesson provides an introduction into selling a wide range of goods. In fact, this supply topic does more than offer insight into selling behavior. It's also the second half of the market analysis -- the first half being demand. And to reiterate what I noted during the demand lesson, market analysis is one of the most widely used tools in the study of economics that can be used to explain a lot of economic phenomenon. Of course to use markets, we need both demand and supply. And supply part is our current lesson.

• The first unit of this lesson introduces the basic concept of supply and a few related terms such as supply price and quantity supplied.
• In the second unit then we move into a discussion of the law of supply, which captures the basic relation between supply price and quantity supplied.
• The third unit then develops the supply curve, which is the graphical embodiment of the supply concept.
• Moving onto the fourth unit, we examine how the five basic supply determinants cause the supply curve to shift from one location to another.
• And in the fifth and final unit, we make a connection between supply and the limited resources part of scarcity.

CONSUMER EQUILIBRIUM

The condition that exists when the last dollar spent on one good provides the same marginal utility as the last dollar spent on every other good. In consumer equilibrium, income is allocated between the purchase of different goods in such a way that the level of utility cannot be increased, that is, utility maximization has been achieved.
