AGGREGATE DEMAND DETERMINANTS: An assortment of ceteris paribus factors that affect aggregate demand, but which are assumed constant when the aggregate demand curve is constructed. Changes in any of the aggregate demand determinants cause the aggregate demand curve to shift. While a wide variety of specific ceteris paribus factors can cause the aggregate demand curve to shift, it's usually most convenient to group them into the four, broad expenditure categories -- consumption, investment, government purchases, and net exports. The reason is that changes in these expenditures are the direct cause of shifts in the aggregate demand curve. If any determinant affects aggregate demand it MUST affect one of these four expenditures.

PRINT AND MINT: A handy phrase for one method of controlling the money supply -- printing paper currency and minting metal coins. This was the method commonly used by governments BEFORE checkable deposits became a significant share of the money supply. In modern times the total quantity of money in circulation is controlled by controlling bank reserves and money creation process of banks. The print and mint method is largely used just to "fill in the gaps" and when the nonbank public decides to transfer money from checkable deposits to currency and coins.
