GRADUATED TAX: A type of progressive tax in which the tax rate is higher as the value of the taxed item increases. For example a graduated sales tax would be one with a 5 percent tax rate on the first $10 of sales, 10 percent tax rate on the any sales between $10 and $50, then a 15 percent rate for anything above $50. Our personal income tax system uses graduated taxes.

  • Introduce graphical analysis techniques: This will be our first hands-on work with graphical analysis, a required part of economic study. Graphs, lines, and curves are a handy way of abstracting key relationships and principles from the real world.
