TEAMSTERS UNION: The common name for the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, which is one of the largest labor unions in the United States, this was established in 1903 and represents truck drivers, chauffeurs, warehouse workers, and labor in related activities. Their name was taken from the teamsters of the 1800s who guided wagons pulled by teams of horses or other animals. Their modern day counterparts have replaced teams of horses with diesel engines, but their function remains much the same. The Teamsters Union was originally part of the AFL-CIO, but was expelled in 1957 due to corruption among union leaders. The Teamsters Union rejoined the AFL-CIO in 1987.

Lesson 15: Aggregate Market | Unit 4: Self Correction Page: 17 of 22

Topic: Recessionary Gap <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

The aggregate market can automatically reach long-run equilibrium by closing a recessionary gap.

Key points:

  • Short-run equilibrium is at the intersection of the AD and the SRAS (SRo) curves.
  • The initial short-run price level is Po, and real production is Qo.
  • Short-run equilibrium is to the left of the full employment production, Qf.
  • We have a recessionary gap.
  • As wages fall, production cost decreases which increases short-run aggregate supply.
  • The SRAS curves shift to reach the full employment level at the intersection of the LRAS and AD curves.

A production period of time in which at all inputs in the production process are fixed, meaning the quantity of output itself is fixed. Also termed market period, the very short run exists if the period is so short that no additional production is possible. In other words, the good has been produced, all that remains is to sell it. This is one of four production time periods used in the study of microeconomics. The other three are short run, long run, and very long run.
