INTERCEPT, AGGREGATE EXPENDITURES LINE: The intercept of the aggregate expenditures line indicates autonomous expenditures, aggregate expenditures that do not depend on the level of income or production. This can be thought of as aggregate expenditures that the four macroeconomic sectors (household, business, government, and foreign) undertake regardless of the state of the economy. Autonomous expenditures are affected by the aggregate expenditures determinants, which cause a change in the intercept and a shift of the aggregate expenditures line.

Topic: The Fields <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

The two biggest, broadest fields in economics are:
  • Macroeconomics is the study of the aggregate economy, the entire pie, the whole forest. Macroeconomics is interested in things like gross production, unemployment, inflation, and recession.
  • Microeconomics is the study of parts of the economy, the slices of the pie, the trees of the forest. Microeconomics is interested in topics like market prices, consumer behavior, production costs, and competition.

CURRENT PRODUCTION

The production of final goods and services that takes place during a given time period. The emphasis here is on time period, especially the CURRENT time period. The macroeconomy's prime measure of current production is gross domestic product. Current production is best contrasted with transactions for past production and future production, both of which are excluded from gross domestic product.
