BUSINESS CYCLE INDICATORS: Assorted economic statistics that provide valuable information about the expansions and contractions of business cycles. These statistics are grouped into three sets--lagging, coincident, and leading. Leading economic indicators tend to move up or down a few months BEFORE business-cycle expansions and contractions. Coincident economic indicators tend to reach their peaks and troughs AT THE SAME TIME as business cycles. Lagging economic indicators tend to rise or fall a few months AFTER business-cycle expansions and contractions.

Lesson 20: Federal Reserve System | Unit 2: What It Does Page: 4 of 20

Topic: Money Control <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

The Fed is responsible for ensuring that the economy has the proper amount of money in circulation.
  • In the old days, governments controlled the money supply by printing and minting money.
  • In modern times, with bank checkable deposits in the money supply, the Fed controls money by controlling banks.

Two reasons:

  • First: Too much money causes inflation and too little money leads to recession and unemployment. The challenge is to keep enough money in circulation.
  • Second: Money is absolutely essential in a modern complex economy. Faith in the value of fiat money is best provided by a centralized, national government that has the authority to ensure the value of money.

When combined, both shifts result in an increase in equilibrium quantity and an indeterminant change in equilibrium price.
