PIGOUVIAN TAX: A tax on an external cost, such as pollution, designed to use market forces to achieve an efficient allocation of resources. A. C. Pigou, one of the first economists to study the market failure of externalities, is credited with developing this tax system for internalizing costs external to the market. An external cost caused by pollution, for example, can be internalized if polluters pay a tax equal to the value of the external cost.

Topic: Stability <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

The shifts in the aggregate supply curves are usually small, steady, and readily expected.
  • The supply-side of the aggregate market is usually the perfect picture of stability.
  • Most of economy's instability result from instability on the demand side of the aggregate market.
  • Shifts of the aggregate supply curve are due to ceteris paribus determinants.
  • The supply determinants are things, other than the price level, that affect aggregate supply.
Both, short-run aggregate supply and long-run aggregate supply curves, can increase or decrease.

In both, long run and shot run:

  • An increase shifts the aggregate supply curve to right.
  • It means that producers are willing and able to offer more real production for sale at any and all price levels.
  • A decrease shifts the aggregate supply curve to left.
  • It means that producers are willing and able to offer less real production for sale at any and all price levels.
