CAPITALISM: A type of economy based on -- (1) private ownership of most resources, goods, and other stuff (private property); (2) freedom to generally use the privately-owned resources, goods, and other stuff to get the most wages, rent, interest, and profit possible; and (3) a system of relatively competitive markets. While government establishes the legal "rules of the game" for capitalism and provides assorted public goods, like national defense, education, and infrastructure, most production, consumption, and resource allocation decisions are left up to individual businesses and consumers. The term capitalism is derived from the notion that capital goods are under private, rather than government, ownership (compare communism, socialism.

Lesson 13: Aggregate Demand | Unit 1: The Concept Page: 2 of 22

Topic: Circular Flow <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

Aggregate demand and the aggregate market are all about the flow of production through the product markets of the circular flow.

The circular flow is the continuous flow of production, income, and resources between households and businesses.

  • Businesses acquire the services of productive factors through the factor markets
  • Households acquire the resulting production from businesses through the product markets
  • The aggregate market combines all of the individual markets for individual goods and services into a overall, comprehensive, complete, aggregate product market.
  • This is the demand side of the aggregate market.

VOTING PARADOX

The possibility that the voting preferences of a group of individuals results in an inconsistent, or intransitive, ranking. While consistent, or transitive, ranking of preferences is expected for individuals, such might not occur for groups of voters. If a consumer prefers good A to good B and good B to good C, then it makes logical sense that the consumer also prefers good A to good C. The voting paradox arises because a group of individuals might prefer A to B and B to C, but then prefer C to A, an inconsistent and intransitive ranking of preferences. Other related voting problems identified by the study of public choice includes the median voter principle, logrolling, and voter apathy (due to rational ignorance and rational abstention).
