INCOME DISTRIBUTION: The manner in which income is divided among the members of the economy. A perfectly equal income distribution would mean everyone in the country has exactly the same income. The income distribution in the good old U. S. of A., while more equal than most nations of the world, is far from perfectly equal. A certain amount of inequality in the income distribution is to be expected because resources are never equally distributed. Some labor is naturally going to be more productive--better able to produce the stuff that consumers want--and thus get more income. The same is true for capital, land, entrepreneurship. However, without government intervention, an unequal distribution of income tends to perpetuate itself. Those who have more income, can invest in additional productive resources, and thus can add even more to their income.

Topic: How? <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

How are banks regulated?
  • First: Government regulators say do something, and if you don't do it, then you suffer the consequences--dollar fines, losing operating control to regulators, or spending a little time in jail.
  • Second: Many bank regulations involve accounting procedures and practices. The FDIC and Comptroller of the Currency are the institutions that take care of these matters.
  • Third: The regulations we are most concerned with are those involving reserves and deposits, which play a key role in controlling the money supply.

ALLOCATION EFFECT

A change in the allocation of resources caused by placing taxes on economic activity. By creating disincentives to produce, consume, or exchange, taxes generally alter resource allocations. The allocation effect is typically used when governments seek to discourage the production, consumption, or exchange of particular goods or activities that are deemed undesirable (such as tobacco use or pollution). This is one of two effects of taxation. The other (primary) is the revenue effect, which is the generation of revenue used to finance government operations.
