Dolamore (2011) claim that a discretionary fiscal policy can be countercyclical and used to stimulate aggregate demand. To illustrate, when the economy is below full-employment level, the government can impose a tax cut or/and increase their spending/expenditure in order to eliminate the recessionary gap. In this case, the discretionary policy is expansionary, as presented in the following figure. As shown in figure below, short run aggregate supply cuts initial aggregate demand (AD0) at a below full-employment level. An increase in government

Turkeys GNI per capita ranked at 50th and HDI ranked at 76th out of 198 countries in 2017 (UNDP 2018a).
There is a large difference between GNI per capita ranking and the HDI ranking of Turkey. HDI is a composite of three indicators which are GNI per capita to evaluate the economic performance, life expectancy at birth to measure the health and expected years and means of schooling to assess the education. If a nation achieves higher levels of these figures, its human development is expected to be high as well. Turkey is 14 places higher by GNI per capita than HDI indicating that the education and healthcare

statistically by increasing the employment rates, economic growth, and revenue for the economy. President Trump’s tax reforms have increased consumer spending, number of jobs, and the increase of the production of businesses. The tax reform called the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, has benefitted 33 low-tax states more than it has benefitted the 17 high-tax states, but this reform is just the beginning because President Trump is still fighting for reforms.
The Keynesian Theory of Macroeconomics states that the government should play a positive role in the stabilization of the economy. I personally feel like President Trump’s tax reforms are playing a positive role because he is creating jobs. In the

1. Define and give specific examples of transaction demand for money and asset demand for money
a. Transaction demand for money is people hold money for everyday transactions. For example, lunch money and bus fee would be a transaction demand. Asset Demand for Money is people hold money since it is less risky than other assets. For example, there is a recession happening and people don’t invest in anything because they don’t want to lose all of their money.

Economics IA2 - Economic Growth - US economic growth hits fastest rate since
Economic growth is an increase in real gross domestic product (GDP) or the real
quantity of goods and services produced over a period of time, usually a year. There are
two types of economic growth: actual and potential growth. The United States of
America’s (USA) economy grew at its fastest pace in four years in the second quarter of
2018, expanding at an annualised rate of 4.1%. There are several reasons and
consequences of this economic growth that I will analyse.
Firstly, the US government implemented expansionary fiscal policies to increase
aggregate demand (AD). A US$1.5 trillion tax cut was granted to

burden from tariffs.
By the way, I strongly agree with the last two paragraphs in this article. The trade war is also a kind of war, there must be sacrifices. The problems are whether the long terms benefits worth the cost, and can the benefits be sustained. Even American business loss more than gains now, if the trade restrictions can truly revive the American steel business and relative business, these policies will be successful and historical and have long term positive impacts to the American economy.

simulation can be used when making purchasing decisions as well as when selling a good. This information could be used in a business setting to ensure pricing is appropriate, optimize performance, and maximize profitability. An understanding of microeconomics and macroeconomics can help to forecast the business and make effective decisions to run a successful business. If major changes are made, it impacts the entire market. Both microeconomic and macroeconomic principles are important to the decision- making process of a business. The simulation has increased my knowledge with the realistic examples provided and demonstrated the effect supply and demand have on microeconomics and macroeconomics principles.ReferencesUniversity of Phoenix.

‘’THE THREE MOST IMPORTANT PROBLEMS TO REMEMBER ABOUT THE GREAT DEPRESSION”
May 1, 2018
The Great depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930sbeginning in the United States. The timing of this depression varied across nations. In most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline. The Great Depression started in the United States after a major fall in stock prices that began around September 4, 1929

The distinction between nominal and real GDP (16 marks)
In macroeconomics, the distinction between nominal and real GDP is a threshold concept and is crucial in analysing economic data.
Nominal GDP (current-price GDP) is the actual value of GDP and so captures the monetary value of the economy’s output. It is affected over time by both changes in prices and in the volume of what is produced. So, for example, nominal GDP in 2017 would be the value of a country’s output at 2017 prices. The same principle applies to other years. Hence, no account is made for the effect of inflation, rather the effect of inflation is incorporated within these figures. In 2017 the nominal (or actual) value of

My current degree course is a combination of Economics and a range of characteristics of Finance (e.g. Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Financial Economics, Economics and Finance of Business and Financial Markets and Institutions). This combination of subjects has enabled me to apply my knowledge to practical scenarios such as investigating and analyzing the business and financial environment including macroeconomic and microeconomic factors. Now, as I reach the end of my undergraduate studies, I am eager not just to continue my studies, but also to specialize in this subject area, which is so critically important to how the global economy operates.

The formal study of macroeconomics is linked
to the writings of John Maynard Keynes, who
during the Depression, the global Depression of the 1930s,
wrote that the aggregate economy might be in disequilibrium,
or at least stuck in a state of high, persistent unemployment.
To that end, the government may need to take
measures to address the problem of unemployment
and the stagnation of the economy.
This is really the first formal study of the macro-economy.
Thus, you can see why, while scarcity has led to economics and its challenges
as the oldest of practicing disciplines, practicing subjects.
It really is one of the newest of those formally studied.

hesitate to seek me out for help understanding a confusing topic or when preparing for a major assignment. Where you have struggled occasionally is on tests, problem sets, and other assignments that ask you to delve into the abstract theories and concepts we've learned. We'll continue to have those types of assignments as we learn new concepts and ideas in macroeconomics, so focus on mastering those concepts themselves and not just their real-world applications.
It's been a pleasure teaching you so far, James, and I can't wait to see what you accomplish over the rest of this term!

Macroeconomics can best be described as the:
analysis of how a consumer tries to spend income.
study of the large aggregates of the economy or the economy as a whole.
analysis of how firms attempt to maximize their profits.
study of how supply and demand determine prices in individual markets.
Normative statements are concerned primarily with:

Australia and China share the similarity of a moderate unemployment rate relative to the rest of the world, this determines the health of their economy The theory of employment was present by John Maynard credited with creating the terminology and shape of modern macroeconomics(ref. 11). As demonstrated in the Image below labelled "Australia Unemployment Rate" Australia's unemployment is shown to experience a stable moderate unemployment. This dictates Australia moderate unemployment at 5. 7-9% to be similar to china's moderate unemployment of 4. 05-0. 2% (Taken from Jan 2016 April to Jan 2017).

). Devetak et al say that for Harvey,
globalisation is a ‘long standing process always implicit in capital accumulation rather than a
political-economic condition that has recently come into being’ (Devetak et al 2nd Ed 2015).
Hirst and Thompson aim to discredit assumptions made by the hyperglobalists. They say that
while the way nation-states are able to make policy for macroeconomics has changed, they
are still pivotal institutions, particularly in ‘creating the conditions for effective international
global governance’, their chief example being that population control is still entirely under
the control of the nation-state, with people being less mobile than ideas, capital or
