ALLOCATION EFFECT: The goal of imposing taxes to change the allocation of resources, that is, to discourage the production, consumption, or exchange or one type of good usually in favor of another. This is one of two reasons that governments impose taxes. The other reason is the revenue effect. Because people would rather not pay taxes, taxes create disincentives to produce, consume, and exchange. If society deems that less of a particular good, such as alcohol, pollution, or cigarettes are "bad," then a tax can reduce its production and consumption, and thus change the allocation of resources.

    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.

    LEGAL RESERVES

    The combination of vault cash and Federal Reserve deposits that banks can legally use to satisfy government reserve requirements. Legal reserves, which can also be considered total reserves, are divided between require reserves and excess reserves. Required reserves are used to back up deposits and process daily transactions, while excess reserves are then available for interest-paying loans.
