PHYSICAL WEALTH, AGGREGATE DEMAND DETERMINANT: One of several specific aggregate demand determinants assumed constant when the aggregate demand curve is constructed, and that shifts the aggregate demand curve when it changes. An increase in the physical wealth causes a decrease (leftward shift) of the aggregate curve. A decrease in the physical wealth causes an increase (rightward shift) of the aggregate curve. Other notable aggregate demand determinants include interest rates, federal deficit, inflationary expectations, and the money supply.

    Factor Market Equilibrium

    My duties for this lesson are to examine how the two sides of the factor market -- factor demand and factor supply -- come together to form the factor market. Like other markets, we are concerned with equilibrium and competition. The analysis of factor markets has an added bonus. It lets us examine market control from the buying side to balance other analysis of market control from the selling side. The cornerstone phrase capturing this buying-side market control is monopsony.

    • The first unit of this lesson, The Foundation, begins by reviewing factor demand and factor supply and seeing how they come together to form the factor market.
    • In the second unit, Market Control, we see how market control on the selling side of a factor market gives rise to assorted market structures, like monopsony.
    • The third unit, Perfect Competition, then takes a look at equilibrium in factor markets that operate under the guidelines of perfect competition.
    • In the fourth unit, Monopsony, we extend the analysis to factor markets with control on the buying side, especially monopsony.
    • The fifth and final unit, Bilateral Monopoly, then analyzes factor markets with monopoly control on the selling side to counter monopsony control on the buying side.

    ECONOMIC RESOURCE

    A resource with an available quantity less than its desired use. Economic, or scarce, resources are also called factors of production and generally classified as either labor, capital, land, or entrepreneurship. Economic resources are the workers, equipment, raw materials, and organizers that are used to produce economic goods. Like the more general society-wide condition of scarcity, a given resource falls into the economic or scarce category because of it has a limited availability relative to (potentially unlimited) productive uses.

    In his older years, Andrew Carnegie seldom carried money because he was offended by its sight and touch.
    "And while the law of competition may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department. "

    -- Andrew Carnegie, entrepreneur
