LOCAL BONDS: Also called municipal bonds, these are medium or long-term financial instruments issued by municipalities to borrow the funds used to build schools, highways, parks and other public projects. An attractive feature of these financial instruments is that are exempt from federal income tax. Commercial banks, corporations, and others with large sums of funds to lend usually purchase these bonds.

Lesson 4: Production Possibilities | Unit 4: Analysis Page: 17 of 24

Topic: Resource Quantity and Quality <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

Three ways to increase resource quantity.
  • Labor: Labor increases through (1) natural population growth, (2) immigration from other nations, and (3) more participation and fewer nonworkers.
  • Capital: The key to getting more capital is investment, giving up satisfaction today to get capital tomorrow.
  • Materials: The key to increasing their quantity is exploration. Exploration is best illustrated by digging or drilling into the Earth's crust in search of mineral or fossil fuel deposits.
Two ways to increase resource quality.
  • Education-The Quality of Labor: Education increases the quality of labor resources. Better educated workers are more productive workers.
  • Education can be formal, sitting-in-a-classroom or informal, on-the-job-training experience. Both are valuable methods of increasing the quality labor.
  • Technology-The Quality of Capital: Technology is the knowledge and information society as a whole possesses concerning the production of goods and services. Better technology enables more production.
  • Technology concerns all aspects of production, but it is often seen as an improvement in the quality of capital.

MONETARY BASE

The combination of currency held by the nonbank public, vault cash held by banks, and Federal Reserve deposits of the banks. Also termed high-powered money, these are the three monetary components over which the Federal Reserve System has relatively complete control. Due to this control, the monetary base is often used as a guide for monetary policy. The monetary base differs from a relative monetary aggregate, M1, through the inclusion of vault cash and Federal Reserve deposits and the exclusion of checkable deposits.
