behind-the-scenes look at the aggregate
demand curve. Key concepts include how
the equilibrium level of GDP is
determined and how the multiplier
Inflation, and national Output (New)
program begins to look at how cycles in
an economy develop by explaining how
unemployment, inflation, and gross
domestic product are measured. the
program also introduces aggregate supply
and demand, and uses these concepts to
spell out why business cycles occur.
Distribution and the Tax System (New)
program looks at why a decentralized
market economy produces a wide range of
income levels. The program also examines
ways in which incomes can be
redistributed, and studies the effects

fiscal policy. The program explains the
channels through which fiscal policy can

can alter net exports, and describes how
a well-designed fiscal policy operates.

elasticity to measure how demand
responds to price. The program also
discusses factors that cause shifts in
supply and demand and how ‘the invisible
hand’ works in free markets and what
happens when price controls are imposed.
