  • Supply-Side Economics

  • How the Government Can Influence (but probably not control) the Economy


Aggregate demand

Aggregate Demand

  • Aggregate Demand: the amounts of real domestic output which domestic consumers, businesses, governments, and foreign buyers collectively will desire to purchase at each possible price level

Why aggregate demand is downward sloping

Why Aggregate Demand is Downward Sloping

  • Real Balances Effect

    • Because higher prices reduce real spending power, prices and output are negatively related.

  • Foreign Purchases Effect

    • When domestic prices are high, we will export less to foreign buyers and we will import more from foreign producers. Therefore higher prices leads to less domestic output.

  • Interest Rate Effect

    • higher prices lead to inflation which leads to less borrowing and a lowering of RGDP


Aggregate supply

Aggregate Supply

  • Aggregate Supply: the level of real domestic output available at each possible price level

The ranges of as

The Ranges of AS

  • Keynesian Range

    • Large amounts of unemployment make it so that increases in aggregate demand have no affect on wages or prices.

  • Classical Range

    • Full employment makes it so that increases in aggregate demand only increase wages or prices.

  • Intermediate Range

    • Some sectors of the economy reach full employment more quickly than others.


Variables that shift aggregate demand

Variables that Shift Aggregate Demand

  • Taxes

  • Interest Rates

Causes of inflation

Causes of Inflation

  • Demand Pull Inflation: inflation caused by an increase in aggregate demand

  • Cost Push Inflation: inflation caused by a decrease in aggregate supply


Government influence aggregate demand

Government Influence: Aggregate Demand

  • Government can influence economic activity with aggregate demand side policies affecting:

    • Taxes

    • Government Spending

    • Interest Rates


Government influence aggregate supply

Government Influence: Aggregate Supply

  • Government can influence economic activity with aggregate supply side policies affecting

    • input costs (labor and wage)

    • reducing regulation

    • Increase incentives to

      • Work

      • Take Risks

  • The actions are call Supply Side Economics
