EC-111 Final Exam Formulas 


What is the main meaning of equilibrium?



(Some formulas will not be on very test) 

Equilibrium

- (Quantity Demanded = Quantity Supplied)

Surplus

- Above equilibrium

- QS is greater than QD

Shortage

- Below equilibrium

- QD is greater than QS

Elasticity of Demand

- (% Change in Quantity Demanded)/ (% Change in Price)

- Midpoint  

o (End – Start)/ Start

o (New – Old)/ Old  

Revenue  

- (Price X Quantity)

GDP (Total Spending) If you want to learn more check out What is source monitoring?

- (Y = C + I + G + NX)

- C = Consumption

- I = Investment  

- G = Government Purchases  


What does shortage mean?



- NX = Net Exports

o NX = Exports – Imports

GDP Deflator  

- (100 X (Nominal GDP/ Real GDP))

Nominal GDP  

- (Current Quantity X Current Price)

Pizza

Pizza

Latte

Latte

Year

Price

2010

$10

400

$2

1000


What does elasticity of demand mean?



- 2010

o $10 X 400 + $2 X 1000 = 6000

Real GDP

- Base Year (Given) X Current Quantity  

Pizza

Pizza

Latte

Latte

2010

$10

400

$2

1000

2011

$11

500

$2.50

1100

If you want to learn more check out What are the effects of aldosterone?

- Real GDP for 2011

o $10 X 500 + $2 X 1100 = 7200

o 2010 is base year  

CPI  

- (100 x (Cost of Basket in Current Year/ Cost of Basket in Base  Year) We also discuss several other topics like How is a cns built?

Inflation Rate  

- ((CPI this year – CPI Last year)/ CPI last year) x 100 Don't forget about the age old question of What are the characteristics of living matter?

Labor Force  

- Total number of workers

- Employed + Unemployed

Unemployment Rate

- Percent of the labor force that is unemployed  

- (100 x (number of unemployed/ Labor Force)

Labor Force Participation Rate

- Percent of the adult population that is in the labor force  - (100 X (Labor Force/ Adult Participation)  

Population

- Labor Force + Not in labor force  

Loanable Funds

- 100 x (Labor Force/ Population)  

Trade Deficit  

- Excess of imports over exports

- NX less than 0 and Y is less than C + I + G  

Trade Surplus  

- Excess of exports over imports  

- NX is greater than 0 and Y is greater than C + I + G If you want to learn more check out What is the key formula you should use in price elasticity of demand?
If you want to learn more check out What does a hairpin-like structure indicate?

Trade Balance  

- Export = Imports

- NX = 0 and Y = C + I + G  

National Income Identity  

- Open economy

o S = I + NCO

- NX = NCO  

- S – I = NCO  

COULD BE ON ANY OF THE TESTS 

Real Exchange Rate

- Rate at which goods and services of one country trade for the  goods and services of another  

- (e X P)/ P*

o e = Nominal Exchange Rate

o P = Domestic Price  

o P* = Foreign Price  

Nominal Interest Rate  

- rate of growth in the dollar value of a deposit or debt  

Real Interest Rate  

- Nominal Interest Rate – Inflation Rate  

Velocity of Money

- V = (P x Y)/ M

o (P x Y) = Nominal GDP  

o M = Money Supply

o V = Velocity  

Quantity Equation  

- Represents entire economy

- M x V = P x Y  

Value of Money

- 1/P

o P = Price Level  

Fisher Effect  

- Nominal Interest Rate = Inflation Rate + Real Interest Rate
