ELASTICITY ALTERNATIVES, DEMAND: The price elasticity of demand can fall into one of five categories--perfectly elastic, relatively elastic, unit elastic, relatively inelastic, and perfectly inelastic--based on the coefficient of elasticity. These five elasticity alternatives form a continuum ranging from perfectly elastic at one end to perfectly inelastic at the other. The "middle" of this continuum is occupied by unit elastic. in that the "unit" and the two "perfectly" are really borders, boundaries, and endpoints, most of the real world action involving the price elasticity of demand takes place in the two "relatively" alternatives--relatively elastic and relatively inelastic.

Topic: Causes <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

To understand business cycles, we need the causes:
  1. Consumption: If households decide to buy more or less, the rest of the economy follows suit.
  2. Capital Investment: Big swings can set in motion upward or downward spirals of total production.
  3. Government Purchases and Taxes: Government purchases can be contractionary or expansionary effect over the economy. Taxes affect the ability of the household and business sectors to buy production.
  4. Net Exports: Changes in exports can trigger expansions and contractions of the domestic economy.
  5. Circulating Money: Too much money can trigger and inflationary expansion, too little money can trigger contraction and unemployment.
  6. Resource Supply Considerations: Resource supply changes (energy prices, technology, wages, etc.) can trigger expansions and contractions.

INTERNATIONAL MARKET

A graphical model used to analyze the trade between two nations based on the domestic markets for a particular good in each nation. The international market combines the excess demand (or import demand) from one country with the excess supply (or export supply) from another to illustrate how two nations undertake mutually beneficial trade. The international market model also can be used to analyze the impact of tariffs, import quotas, and export subsidies.
