ACTION LAG: In the context of economic policies, a part of the implementation lag involving the time it takes for appropriate policies to be launched once they have been agreed to by policy makers. Another part of the implementation lag is the decision lag. For fiscal policy, this involves appropriating funds to government agencies (for government spending) or changing the tax code (for taxes) For monetary policy, this involves the buying and selling government securities in the open market. The action lag is usually shorter for monetary policy than fiscal policy.

    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.

    UNIT OF ACCOUNT

    The money function in which money is used as the common benchmark to designate the prices of goods exchanged throughout the economy. Unit of account, or measure of value, means money is functioning as the measuring unit for prices. In other words, prices of goods are stated in terms of the monetary unit. This is one of four basic functions of money. The other three are medium of exchange, store of value, and standard of deferred payment.
