HARROD-DOMAR MODEL: A model economic growth developed by R. F. Harrod and E. D. Domar that seeks to explain why an economy would not grow as fast has its potential growth rate. This model is based on the notion that actual income determines the amount saving, which is determines investment, which is what affects the rate of economic growth. If saving is not enough, the potential growth rate will not be achieved. The Harrod-Domar model, developed in the 1930s, has a strong Keynesian economic flavor, both indicating that the economy does not automatically achieve its potential.

CURRENT ACCOUNT DEFICIT: An imbalance in a nation's balance of payments current account in which payments received by the country for selling domestic exports are less than payments made by the country for purchasing imports. In other words, imports (of goods and services) by the domestic economy are greater than exports (of goods and services). This is generally a not desireable situation for a domestic economy. However, in the wacky world of international economics, a current account deficit is often balanced by a capital account surplus, which is generally considered a desireable situation. If, however, the capital account does not balance out the current account, then a current account deficit contributes to a balance of payments deficit.

AGGREGATE SUPPLY SHIFTS

Changes in the aggregate supply determinants shift both the short-run aggregate supply curve and the long-run aggregate supply curve. The mechanism is comparable to that for market supply determinants and market supply. There are two options--an increase in aggregate supply and a decrease in aggregate supply. An increase in resource quantity or quality or a decrease in resource price shifts one or both of the aggregate supply curves to right. A decrease in resource quantity or quality or an increase in resource price shifts one or both of the aggregate supply curves to left.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time watching the shopping channel hoping to buy either a T-shirt commemorating last Friday (you know why) or a rotisserie oven that can also toast bread. Be on the lookout for bottles of barbeque sauce that act TOO innocent.

This isn't me! What am I?
