ECO 372 Fundamentals of Macroeconomics Paper


The economic activities for purchasing groceries affect the government because they determine the taxes on groceries; which items can be sold, the amount of taxes for each item, and when they can be sold. Households are affected because if taxes are high on groceries and the household income is low, it will prevent consumers from providing adequately for their families. This can force families to obtain assistance from social services, pantries, churches and other family members and friends. The effect on businesses would be damaging if consumers do not purchase groceries because they cannot afford to. If prices are too high in a particular store, consumers will go elsewhere to shop where it is cheaper. This can cause companies to shut down their business or force a merger.

Massive layoff of employees

The economic activities for massive layoff of employees affect the government because they will be responsible for paying for employees' unemployment, and Medicaid and food Stamps through Department of Social Services. Households will have the same effect with layoffs as the government, except households will have to rely on unemployment, Medicaid and food stamps. Massive layoffs to households can affect their living and spending expenses. It can prevent them from paying their bills, lose their homes, cars, and keep them from having the ability to keep up with the current living they are used to.

Fundamentals of Macroeconomics Paper

Part 1 - Describe the following terms in your own word:

Gross domestic product (GDP) - The growth that economists measure changes in the market value of final goods and services produced in an economy within a specific year.

Real GDP - Real GDP represents the adjusted market price added to the current price which is inflation.

Nominal GDP - Nominal GDP represents the current or actual market price or income before inflation.

Unemployment rate - The rate that describes the amount of people out of work or unemployed due to no choice of their own. If the rate is low, then there are more jobs available for people to work. If the rate is high, then there are fewer jobs available.

Inflation rate - The number in price changes over time. This number can fluctuate between high and low. It can affect the consumer prices, cost of living and even gas prices.

Interest rate - The percentage of money that is added to a loan from banks and companies for consumers to pay back for purchases of mortgages, loans, financial aid, cars, boats, credit cards and other purchases.

If your credit is poor, then your interest rate is either high or you may not qualify for the loan.
