ECON 201: Microeconomics Notes taken, interpreted, and formatted by: Jensine Bonner Week 3 of Notes: Last section of Chapter 3 & Beginning of Chapter 4 Key (Abbreviations of Important Terms): (HH)- Household (BF) - Business Firm NEW (P)- price NEW (QD) – Quantity Demand (G)- Government (s) - services (g) – goods NEW (QS)- Quantity Supply (l)- labor (K)- Capital (S)- supply (MC)- Marginal Cost (MP)- Marginal Principle (MB)- Marginal Benefit 2/15/16 No School (Snow Day) 2/17/16 (Continuation of Information on the Circular Flow Diagram) - The product(s) that are demanded and product(s) supplied have to match up - For BF to put more products into the market, they need more input (from the HH) so, more $$ goes back to the HH - The product that is demanded is the catalyst for the Circular Flow Diagram - Everything is ultimately paid by the HH - The cause of any recession or depression is over-spending. So in order to fix the problem(s) that are presented, something has to be taken back - Every section of the economy is taxed w/either a direct o’ indirect tax - The avg. person will pay 50% o’ income back by the end of the year - A BF would increase prices if the taxes were high - There is no competition (at least no true) competition with anyone - The Gov. tends to be insufficient when they don’t compete with each other - As the consumer, we are always making choices to decide how to spend $ How do you stimulate economy? - Private sector Definitions/Terms Market Economy- People specialize and exchange goods/services in a market Culturally Planned Economy- The Government decides (What, how much, & how) to produce and who consumes Export- Good(s) that are produced domestically and sold abroad Import- A good that is produced abroad and sold domestically End of Chapter 3 2/19/16 Beginning of Chapter 4: Supply & Demand; Market Equilibrium Perfect Competition A market that has many buyers & sellers. There are so many that no (1) person(s) has control over the entire market Free Entry & Exit When there is no external cost associated w/ the item Homogeneous Product The products are identical to each other- interchangeable *Good/Closest example would be the agriculture market* Perfect Knowledge About a particular market No Collusion 2 or more BF get together in order to control the market In this market, a monopoly cannot be created Law of Demand (P) price & quantity demand (QD) vary inversely. - When P increases, QD decreases. This is an example of ceteris paribus. This will produce a negatively sloped curve Aggregate Demand= Total Demand - Within the demand that is presented, there can be individual demand curves - D & the QD are different When the curve moves  change in demand If still on the same curve, but @ a different point on the curve then, it’s a change in QD Law of Supply *Based on BF* P & QS vary directly - An increase in P an increase in QS is ceteris paribus for the Law of Supply, and will produce a positively sloped curve - When a curve moves to the left, it decreases. When it moves to the right, it increases Equilibrium QD=QS (Q*) which translates to MB=MC Market Clearing Price (P*) - The price producers are willing to sell at & what consumers are willing to sell at everyone wins market clear 4 Primary Types of Goods Normal Good: As income increases; consumers want more Inferior Good: As income increases; consumers want less Substitute Good: (2) goods that are related in such a way that as the price of (1) good increases, the demand for the other increases (Ex. Coke & Pepsi) Complimentary Good(s): (2) goods related in such a way that as the price of (1) good increases, the demand for the other good decreases (Ex. An increase in Peanut Butter prices you’ll buy less Jelly) End of Week 3 Notes. I hope that they were helpful to you. Notes will be uploaded weekly, so be sure to come back again!
