    Explain what is meant by the term "an economic model" and outline a model of price and output determination in a free market. Examine the effect of a change in real disposable income on equilibrium price and output. An economic model or theory is a simplified explanation and analysis of economic behaviour. It allows us to predict, and therefore intervene, if we do not like the outcome of a possible chain of events. Theories and models are mainly derived from past responses to similar stimuli or ...

Relatively high levels of employment with shor...
  • Demand For Medical Care

    Demand for Medical Care The demand for medical care is derived from our demand for good health. Michael Grossman was the first to do econometric research on this topic. "Grossman's work established two approaches for consideration. In the first, medical care is viewed as an input in the production function for health, and in the second, as an output produced by medical care providers (Henderson, p. 142)." There are two main factors that determine the demand for medical care. The first is the pa...

'For the majority of the goods and services, experience shows that the quantity demanded will increase as the price falls.' (Stan lake 155) This characteristic can be shown by a demand curve.

    1,335 words
    Price elasticity of demand is defined as how demand changes as a result of a change in price. It can be said that if a reduction in price leads to an increase in demand then demand is relatively elastic. Elasticity is usually negative. There is an alternative scenario where demand will increase as price does so too. This happens only in the case of Giff en goods, where elasticity is positive. The formula for price elasticity of demand is: Percentage Change in Quantity Demanded Percentage Change ...

    a) Explain the operation of the Keynesian multiplier The easiest way to explain the way in which the multiplier works according to Keynes is to construct a simple model. This model will have two particular simplifying features, in that it will focus exclusively on the demand side of the economy, and it will not include either government activity or the foreign sector. In order to construct this model, we will assume that all prices and wages are fixed within the economy, and that there are unemp...
  • Elasticity Of Demand Price Change Income
    1,467 words
    Elasticity is the concept in economics that measures the responsiveness of one variable in response to another variable. The best measure of this responsiveness is the proportional or percent change in the variables. This gives the most usable results for any type or range of data. Thus, elasticity is the proportional (or percent) change in one variable relative to the proportional change in another variable. The general formula for elasticity is: E = Percent change in x Percent change in y An ...

  • The Economics Of Labour Markets

    The factors of production are the inputs used to produce goods and services. Labour demand is a derived demand, because it is a factor of production. Let's consider what a competitive and profit-maximizing firm would do. The production function is the relationship between the quantity of inputs used to make a good and the quantity of output of that good. The marginal product of labour is the increase in the amount of output from an additional unit of labour. Diminishing marginal product is the p...

    On-Demand Computing; Fact or Fiction? What is on-demand computing? On-demand computing means IT resources (and technologies) can respond to unexpected increases in demand, and immediately deliver the additional capacity that is required. The thought is to make the delivery (and availability) of IT computing resources as promptly as that of utilities such as electricity, natural gas or water; as a service. The intentions of on-demand computing are to dynamically support IT capacity with changing ...
