 AMORTIZATION: The process of paying off a debt liability and accrued interest through a series of equal, periodic payments. Car loans and mortgages are two debts commonly paid off through amortization. Your monthly car payment, for example, partially pays for interest accrued on the outstanding balance and partly reduces that balance. Because one payment reduces the outstanding balance, each subsequent payment has a smaller portion for interest. If the proper amortization schedule has been calculated, your loan will be paid off with the last payment.

Market Supply

This supply lesson provides an introduction, not only into Stuffed Amigo selling behavior, but into selling a wide range of other goods, even goods that aren't cute and cuddly. In fact, this supply topic does more than offer insight into selling behavior. It's also the second half of the market analysis -- the first half being demand. And to reiterate what I noted during the demand lesson, market analysis is one of the most widely used tools in the study of economics for explaining a lot of economic phenomenon. Of course to use markets, we now need to consider supply.

• The first unit of this lesson, Selling Basics, introduces the basic concept of supply and a few related terms such as supply price and quantity supplied.
• In the second unit, Law of Supply, we move into a discussion of the law of supply, which captures the basic relation between supply price and quantity supplied.
• The third unit, Supply Curve, then develops the supply curve, which is the graphical embodiment of the supply concept.
• Moving onto the fourth unit, Determinants, we examine how the five basic supply determinants cause the supply curve to shift from one location to another.
• And in the fifth and final unit, Scarcity, we make a connection between supply and the limited resources part of scarcity.

INFLATION CAUSES

Inflation, the persistent increase in the average price level, can be caused by an increase in aggregate demand or a decrease in aggregate supply. This suggests two basics sources, causes, or types of inflation--demand-pull inflation and cost-push inflation. While short-term bouts of inflation (up to several months) can result from anything (determinant) that might cause either increases in aggregate demand or decreases in aggregate supply, long-term inflation (a year or more) is possible ONLY through persistent increases in the money supply. As such, while demand-pull inflation and cost-push inflation are convenient ways to catalog the transmission mechanisms of inflation, the ultimate CAUSE of inflation is money.
