FEDERAL RESERVE NOTE: Paper currency issued by each of the 12 Federal Reserve District Banks in denominations of $1, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100. Unlike paper currency of the past that was issued by the U. S. Treasury, these notes are backed by the Federal Reserve System. Specifically, each of the 12 Fed District Banks supplies notes within it's district. Each district bank puts it's own personal number and stamp (literally to the left of the portrait) on the notes it issues. For example, the number for the Boston District Bank is 1, while San Francisco Bank is 12.

PEAK: The transition of a business cycle from an expansion and a contraction. The end of an expansions carries the descriptive term peak. At the peak, the economy has reached the highest level of production in recent times. The bad thing about a peak, however, is that it is a turning point, a turning point to a contraction. So even though a peak is the "highest" is not necessarily something we want. We would prefer never to reach the peak.

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.
