YIELD: The rate of return on a financial asset. In some simple cases, the yield on a financial asset, like commercial paper, corporate bond, or government security, is the asset's interest rate. However, as a more general rule, the yield includes both the interest earned from an asset plus any changes in the asset's price. Suppose, for example, that a $100,000 bond has a 10 percent interest rate, such that the holder receives $10,000 interest per year. If the price of the bond increases over the course of the year from $100,000 to $105,000, then the bond's yield is greater than 10 percent. It includes the $10,000 interest plus the $5,000 bump in the price, giving a yield of 15 percent. Because bonds and similar financial assets often have fixed interest payments, their prices and subsequently yields move up and down as economic conditions change.

UNEMPLOYMENT, PRODUCTION POSSIBILITIES:

Unemployment is the condition that exists when some available resources are NOT engaged in the production of goods and services. In other words, some resources that could be used for production are not being used. This is indicated in production possibilities analysis by producing a combination of goods that places the economy inside the production possibilities curve.

Unemployment
Production possibilities, which analyzes the alternative combinations of two goods that an economy can produce with given resources and technology, indicates unemployment when production is inside the production possibilities curve.

Unemployment means resources that could be used for production are not being used. And when some resources are not being used for production, the economy does not reach the production possibilities curve--the curve that corresponds to full employment. In particular, unemployment results from any point INSIDE the production possibilities curve.

To illustrate this, use the mouse arrow to point out unemployment as all points, including L, that lie INSIDE this curve for the production of crab puffs and storage sheds. However, you might also note that points D and J on the boundary of the production possibilities curve achieve full employment. In addition, note that point M is not attainable with existing resources and technology.
