    Probabilities are not readily available in the world around us. Expressing uncertainty, probability represents precisely what is epistemically unavailable to us. Also the concepts chaos and free choice indicate a lack of predictability of the world. Probability is distinct from chaos and free will in that it presupposes some type of long run regularity. In this section we shall deal with questions such as how probabilities can be assessed and evaluated and to what extent long run regularities ar...

The United States has two basic goals for its economy: to promote maximum output and employment and to promote stable prices. In the long run, the level of output and employment in the eco...

  • Control Of Inflation Long Run
    1,050 words
    The governments of most developed economies now appear to be primarily concerned with inflation and how to keep it down as opposed to maintaining full employment or restricting the money supply. However, unlike in other areas of the economy, the actions the government can take to control inflation are quite limited. This is because people and firms behave according to their expectations not only of inflation but also of what they consider the government will do. As a result of these implications...

    Sometimes profit can be seen as a good indicator of the success of an organisation, but this is not always true. Everything depends on what an organisation thinks of success. The Oxford's Dictionary (2000) defines "Success? as: "the fact that you have achieved something that you want and have been trying to do or get?

Economic growth can be simply defined as the growth of real output of an economy over time. Economic growth is usually measured in terms of an increase in real gross national product (GNP) /g...
