UNEMPLOYMENT PROBLEMS: The unemployment or resources, especially labor, is one of the more important macroeconomic issues facing economists and government leaders. The two key problems are: personal hardships and lost production. When resources don't produce goods, their owners don't earn income. The loss of income results in less consumption and a lower living standard. If fewer resources are engaged in production, fewer goods and services are produced. A decline in the income, consumption, and production associated with unemployment triggers further declines in income, consumption, and production. Members of society who might escape the direct, immediate personal hardships of unemployment can succumb to the indirect, multiplicative problems of lost production.

FACTOR SUPPLY DETERMINANTS

Ceteris paribus influences, other than factor price, that shift the factor supply fall into three general categories: (1) market supply determinants, (2) market demand determinants, and (3) mobility. Comparable to any determinant, those falling into these three categories cause the factor supply curve to shift to a new location. An increase in factor supply is a rightward shift of the factor supply curve and a decrease in factor supply is a leftward shift.
