BUDGET SURPLUS: An excess of budgetary revenues over expenditures. This seemingly rare event is in fact commonly practiced by many state and local governments -- albeit often because of constitutional mandates. The federal government has even accomplished this feat once or twice. Consumers operate a budget surplus whenever they're able to put a little bit of their income into saving.

    Demand

    This lesson on demand offers a little insight into the purchases of a wide range of goods. In fact, this demand topic is does more than offer insight into buying behavior. It's also one half of the market analysis -- the other half being supply. And market analysis is one of the most widely used tools in the study of economics. Economists explain a lot of economic phenomenon using markets. But to use markets, we need demand. And that brings us back to this lesson.

    • In the first unit of this lesson we examine the basic concept of demand. While you've likely come across the term demand before, we'll see the specific way the term is used in economics.
    • The second unit then takes a look at the law of demand, which is one of the most important and most fundamental economic principles that we'll encounter.
    • As we more on to the third unit, our attention turns to the demand curve, which is the graphical embodiment of the demand concept.
    • In the fourth unit, we examine how the five basic demand determinants cause the demand curve to shift from one location to another.
    • And finally in the fifth unit, we make a connection between demand and the fundamental problem of scarcity.
