BUSINESS CYCLE: The recurring expansions and contractions of the national economy (usually measured by real gross domestic product). A complete cycle typically lasts from three to five years, but could last ten years or more. It is divided into four phases -- expansion, peak, contraction, and trough. Unemployment inevitably rises during contractions and inflation tends to worsen during expansions. To avoid the inflation and unemployment problems of business cycles, the federal government frequently undertakes various fiscal and monetary policies.

SHORT-RUN EQUILIBRIUM: The condition that exists for the aggregate market when the product and financial markets are in equilibrium, but the resource markets are not. This condition results in the short run because of worker misperceptions about real wages and/or rigid wages and prices. It is represented by the intersection of the AD (aggregate demand) curve and the SRAS (short-run aggregate supply) curve and can be greater than or less than full employment.

FEDERAL DEFICIT, AGGREGATE EXPENDITURES DETERMINANT

One of several specific aggregate expenditures determinants assumed constant when the aggregate expenditures line is constructed, and that shifts the aggregate expenditures line when it changes. An increase in the federal deficit causes an increase (upward shift) of the aggregate expenditures line. A decrease in the federal deficit causes a decrease (downward shift) of the aggregate expenditures line. Other notable aggregate expenditures determinants include consumer confidence, financial wealth, inflationary expectations, and exchange rates.
