INDUCED CHANGE: A change in aggregate expenditures, especially consumption expenditures, that is "induced" or triggered by a change in national income or gross domestic product. Induced changes form the foundation for the multiplier effect, which is set in motion by autonomous changes in aggregate expenditures. In terms of Keynesian economics and the Keynesian cross diagram, induced changes are seen as a movement along in the aggregate expenditures line. This two step process, autonomous changes causing induced changes, is key to explaining business cycle fluctuations.

Planning On SOCIAL SECURITY?

This may be the greatest day of my life. The musical group to top all musical groups -- The Strollers -- has just released its latest CD with a song that's certain to be a foot-tapping classical. Of course, you know the song of which I speak -- "Sidewalking." Let's stop into the Musical Sound CD Emporium in the Shady Valley Central Town Sprawling Hills Shopping Mall and fulfill my dreams. Everyone in Shady Valley, however, does not share my joy. As the seventeen year old Emporium clerk, Alicia Hyfield, completes my transaction, she confesses more than a bit of disgruntlement over here just-issued paycheck. A little investigation reveals some displeasure with the size of the FICA deduction. Her disgruntlement isn't lessened to know that this is for the government's social security program that's suppose to provide a source of income in her golden years. She seems more than a bit skeptical of ever seeing any returns. Maybe we can alleviate her concerns (and mine) with a quick run through social security.
