MARKET PERIOD: A period of time in which at all inputs in the production process are fixed, meaning the quantity of output itself is fixed. In other words, you've produced the good, you're not going to produced any more for now, all that remains is to sell it. You should compare market period with short run and production, long run and production, and very long run.

Lesson 16: Aggregate Shocks | Unit 5: Synthesis Page: 20 of 21

Topic: Business Cycles <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

To illustrate a business cycle, let's begin with long-run, full-employment equilibrium.
  • With an expansion, consumers have accumulated durable goods.
  • This decreases consumption spending and aggregate demand. The AD curve shifts leftward. We have a recession.
  • Before the SRAS curve automatically shifts to restore full employment, people start buying durable goods again and the AD curve shifts rightward. We have a recovery.
  • The AD curve doesn't stop at full employment. With our expansion we have (possibly) inflation.
  • But accumulation of durable goods causes a decrease in aggregate demand again and another recession.
  • The process continues.

FEDERAL DEFICIT, AGGREGATE EXPENDITURES DETERMINANT

One of several specific aggregate expenditures determinants assumed constant when the aggregate expenditures line is constructed, and that shifts the aggregate expenditures line when it changes. An increase in the federal deficit causes an increase (upward shift) of the aggregate expenditures line. A decrease in the federal deficit causes a decrease (downward shift) of the aggregate expenditures line. Other notable aggregate expenditures determinants include consumer confidence, financial wealth, inflationary expectations, and exchange rates.
