AGGREGATE DEMAND CURVE: A graphical representation of the relation between aggregate expenditures on real production and the price level, holding all ceteris paribus aggregate demand determinants constant. The aggregate demand, or AD, curve is one side of the graphical presentation of the aggregate market. The other side is occupied by the aggregate supply curve (which is actually two curves, the long-run aggregate supply curve and the short-run aggregate supply curve). The negative slope of the aggregate demand curve captures the inverse relation between aggregate expenditures on real production and the price level. This negative slope is attributable to the interest-rate effect, real-balance effect, and net-export effect.

Topic: Economic Goals <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

The three macro goals are most important in the study of the macroeconomics:

  • Full employment: This is when all available resources (labor, capital, land, and entrepreneurship) are used to produce goods and services. It enables more production that can reduce the scarcity problem.
  • Stability: This is avoiding or limiting fluctuations in production, employment, and prices. It reduces uncertainty of the future.
  • Growth: This is increasing the economy's ability to produce goods and services. It improves living standards and better addresses the scarcity problem.

The two micro goals are most important in the study of the microeconomics:

  • Efficiency: This is getting the highest amount of satisfaction from available resources. Efficiency is achieved when society cannot change the distribution of resources in any way that would increase the total amount of satisfaction obtained by society.
  • Equity: This is the fairness with which income or wealth is distributed within a society. Equity occurs when income or wealth is fairly distributed. But the standards of fairness differ and puts us into normative economics.
