AGGREGATE MARKET: An economic model relating the price level and real production that is used to analyze business cycles, gross domestic product, unemployment, inflation, stabilization policies, and related macroeconomic phenomena. The aggregate market, inspired by the standard market model, captures the interaction between aggregate demand (the buyers) and short-run and long-run aggregate supply (the sellers).

Topic: Income Effect <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

An important question is: Why does the law of demand work? Two reasons are income effect and substitution effect.

First, the income effect. This is the change in quantity demanded that results because a change in price gives a buyer more real income, even though money income remains unchanged.

  • The reason is that buyers have limited income.
  • Any change in price affects the purchasing power of buyers' limited income. A higher price means a given income can buy less and a lower price means a given income can buy more.
