COMMUNISM: In theory, an economy based on -- (1) a classless society, where everyone does their best to contribute to the common good, (2) a common, rather than individual, ownership of all resources, (3) the complete disappearance of government, and (4) income allocated based entirely on need rather than on resource ownership or contribution to production (that is, a needs standard, compare contributive standard).

Topic: Time of Adjustment <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

There is no specific, absolute time period that separates short run from long run.

Time factors:

  • First: The size of the gap between short-run real production and long-run real production. Bigger gaps take longer to close.
  • Second: Because prices are less rigid going up than down, inflationary gaps tend to close more quickly than recessionary gaps.
  • Third: Adjustment speed depends on the underlying structure of the economy, including things like size, government laws, resource endowments, and culture.
These change over time and differ among countries. But adjustment is usually months not days.

These five alternatives--perfectly elastic, relatively elastic, unit elastic, relatively inelastic, and perfectly inelastic--are often illustrated by different supply curves. The price elasticity of demand is also reflected by five comparable alternatives.

This isn't me! What am I?

The wealthy industrialist, Andrew Carnegie, was once removed from a London tram because he lacked the money needed for the fare.
