Circular Flow of Income. How the different components of an economy interact.
 
05:11
Transcript: 1 In macroeconomics, we study the economy of one country. 2 Then try to understand how 2 countries interact and trade. 3 And hopefully, understand the global economy. 4 So today, we are going to study the circular flow of income. 5 Let’s make things really simple. 5 Imagine we are alone on an isolated island. There’s no government, no trade, no savings. I told you, it's simple! 6 There’s only firms and households. (2-sector economy: firms + households (closed economy)) 7 Firms provide households with goods and services. 7 Out of thin air? 7 Nah.. 8 Firms gotta get factors of production from households. 8 It can be labor, land, capital or… 8 Face it. Some of us in households are going to be entrepreneurs. (For more information on factors of production: check out this video) 8 So…entrepreneurship. 9 For free? You wish! 9 We don’t get freebies from firms. 9 We don’t provide labor for free either. 10 So there’s money flowing in the opposite direction. 11 Households gotta pay firms for the goods they get. 12 Firms also gotta pay households in the form of wages, rents, interests or profits. 12 But this is a little weird. 12 We don’t spend everything we earn in real life. 13 So let’s add savings. 13 Savings is money we don’t spend. 13 So there’s money flowing out. 14 Hey, savings don’t just sit in banks… 14 Banks invest in firms by lending to them. 14 Cos firms need money to buy capital equipment or cover other costs of production. 14 So there's investments flowing into the economy. 14 Bravo! Awesome! 14 But this is a little too simplified. 15 Let’s add government. (3 sector economy: firms + households + government) 15 Government buys stuff as well. 15 So there’s money flowing in. 16 Government gets money from taxes. 16 Taxes. So there’s money flowing out. 16 Cos for the money we’re paying as taxes, we cannoyt spend it. 17 Lastly, countries interact with one another. 17 Imagine this is an American economy. 18 Let’s add trade. (4 sector economy: firms + households + government + foreign sector) 18 America imports stuff. 18 For example, America can import shoes from China. 18 Shoes flow from China into America. 19 And money spent on imports flows out of America into China. 19 America exports too. 19 America can produce software 19 and export it to foreigners, 20 Money then flows from foreign countries into America. 20 This is America's export earnings. 21 Investments, Government Spending and Export earnings are called Injections. 21 Cos money is flowing in. 22 Savings, taxes and import spending are called leakages or withdrawals. 22 Cos money leaks out of the system. And hey, injections and leakages are sort of related. Investments come from savings. Government spending comes from taxes. America makes money from foreigners by exporting. But foreigners also make money from America when America imports. Wow…no wonder it's Circular Flow of Income It tells us roughly how an economy functions. 23 How do we measure the size of an economy then? 24 By measuring Gross Domestic Product or GDP. 24 GDP is the total value of all final goods and services produced within the borders of a country during a given period. 25 Why must it be FINAL goods and services? (Hint: it's in the next video) 26 If you like this video, remember to like and subscribe. 27 Next up: Measuring GDP: Output Approach _______________________________________________ How does an economy function? Look at the Circular Flow of Income. Who are the major players in an economy? In order of increasing complexity, there are: 2-sector economy: households + firms 3-sector economy: households + firms + government 4-sector economy: households + firms + government + foreign sector There are real goods and services flowing in one direction in the circular flow of income and money flowing in the opposite direction. When money flowing to the country, it's called injections. When money flows out, it's called withdrawals or leakages. Injections consist of government spending, investments and exports. Leakages or withdrawals include imports, taxes and savings. Injections and leakages/withdrawals are related to each other. This is because government spending comes from tax revenues and investments, at least the local component, come from savings. That said, investments can flow from foreign countries in the form of foreign direct investments (FDI). Lastly, while money can flow from foreign countries when we export overseas, money also leaks out of the country because we import. Important definitions: Gross Domestic Product or GDP is the total value of all final goods and services produced within the borders of a country during a given period.

Labor Markets and Minimum Wage: Crash Course Economics #28
 
10:38
How much should you get paid for your job? Well, that depends on a lot of factors. Your skill set, the demand for the skills you have, and what other people are getting paid around you all factor in. In a lot of ways, labor markets work on supply and demand, just like many of the markets we talk about in Crash Course Econ. But, again, there aren't a lot of pure, true markets in the world. There are all kinds of oddities and regulations that change the way labor markets work. One common (and kind of controversial one) is the minimum wage. The minimum wage has potential upsides and downsides, and we'll take a look at the various arguments for an against it. Crash Course is on Patreon!

10:18
In which Jacob Clifford and Adriene Hill teach you about Economic Systems and Macroeconomics. So, economics is basically about choices. We'll look at some of the broadest economic choices when we talk about the difference between planned economies and market economies. We'll get into communism, socialism, command economies, and capitalism. We'll look at how countries choose the kind of system they're going to use (spoiler alert: many end up with mixed economies). We'll also look into how individuals make economic choices. Crash Course is now on Patreon!

Income and Wealth Inequality: Crash Course Economics #17

Inequality is a big, big subject. There's racial inequality, gender inequality, and lots and lots of other kinds of inequality. This is Econ, so we're going to talk about wealth inequality and income inequality. There's no question that economic inequality is real. But there is disagreement as to whether income inequality is a problem, and what can or should be done about it. *** Crash Course is on Patreon!

What is the Gold Standard? - Learn Liberty
 
04:25
Before 1974, U.S. dollars were backed by gold. This meant that the federal government could not print more money than it could redeem for gold. Learn more: http://bit.ly/1HVAtKP. While this constrained the federal government, it also provided citizens with a relatively stable purchasing power for goods and services. Today's paper currency has no intrinsic value. It is not based on the value of gold or anything else. Under a gold standard, inflation was really limited. With floating value, or fiat, currency, however, some countries have seen inflation reach extremely high levels—sometimes enough to lead to economic collapse. Gold standards have historically provided more stable currencies with lower inflation than fiat currency. Should the United States return to a gold standard?

So, all this starts with home mortgages, and the use of mortgages as an investment instrument. For years, it seemed like the US housing market would go up and up. Like a bubble or something.

Inflation and Bubbles and Tulips: Crash Course Economics #7
 
10:25
In which Adriene and Jacob teach you about how and why prices rise. Sometimes prices rise as a result of inflation, which is a pretty normal thing for economies to do. We'll talk about how across the board prices rise over time, and how economists track inflation. Bubbles are a pretty normal thing for humans to do. One item, like tulips or beanie babies or houses or tech startups experience a rapid rise in prices. This is often accompanied by speculation, a bunch of outrageous profits, and then a nasty crash when the bubble bursts. People get excited about rising prices, and next thing you know, people are trading their life savings for a tulip bulb. Crash Course is on Patreon!

Money & Debt: Crash Course World History 202
 
14:04
In which John Green teaches about filthy, filthy lucre. Money. And Debt. So, what is money? And what is it for? And why do we use money? And why does it all disappear so quickly after payday? John will look into 75% of these questions, and if he doesn't come up with answers, we'll get into some interesting ideas along the way, at least. This week we'll investigate whether money displaces barter, then leads to war, slavery, and what we think of as civilized social orders. We'll also see what old Adam Smith thinks of big money, no whammies, this week on Crash Course. We'll also talk quite a bit about Debt: The First 5000 Years by David Graeber.

Eco. Survey Ch.13-Resource Curse, Ch.2-Economic Vision, Ch.9-UBI
 
50:29
- In this lecture, we'll study three chapters from Economic survey 2016-17 viz. - Ch.13: Ch.The "Other Indias': Two Analytical Narratives (Redistributive and Natural Resources) on States' Development: why some of the Indian states are backward to this date, despite receiving large amount of money as plan assistance, tax devolution, grant in aid and despite having large mineral wealth? - Ch.2: The Economic Vision for Precocious, Cleavaged India: why USA grew rapidly under democracy and China grew under authoritarinism but India has not, despite following mixed economy model? - Ch. 9: Universal Basic Income: A Conversation With and Within the Mahatma. - Budget 2017 has allotted 2.7 lakh crores are subsidies, and majority of that will be spent on food, fuel and fertilizers. But Survey observes that not even 40% of the subsidies are the bottom strata of the society because of 1) inclusion error and 2) exclusion error. - Hence in Survey 2014-15, Arvind Subramanian recommended JAM trinity but next year he realized we can't do direct benefit transfer (DBT) everywhere due to low financial inclusion. So, in some cases such as Kerosene and Food subsidies, Biometrically authenticated Physical uptake (BAPU) is a better alternative than DBT. And simultenously, Government must reduce the subsidies that are being cornered by the affluent class such as PPF, IT exemption, "gold subsidies" et al. - In Survey 2016-17, it seems CEA has lost faith in this option as well, so now talking of giving universal basic income (UBI) to all people. His logic being since Tendulkar Poverty line is measured by monthly Expenditure, so if we give people sufficient money to spend, then automatically they would come above the poverty line. - The only question remains is how much should we give 2,000 or 7,000 or 12,000 or some figure in between. Survey says UBI should have De jure universality, de facto quasi universality i.e. not all people should be given this money. So how to ensure this- survey gives four options 1) self-targeting 2) exit 3) gradualism 4) keeping the well-off people out by eliminating income tax payers and automobile owners from the list. - Faculty Name: You know who - All Powerpoint available at http://mrunal.org/powerpoint - Exam-Utility: UPSC IAS IPS Civil service exam, Prelims, CSAT, Mains, Staff selection SSC-CGL, IBPS-PO/MT, IBPS-CWE, SBI PO & Clerk, RBI and other banking exams; LIC, EPFO, FCI & other PSU exams; CDS, CAPF and other defense services exams; GPSC, MPPCS, RPSC & other State PCS services exams with Indian Economy, Budget, Banking, Public Finance in its syllabus- with descriptive questions and answer writing.

Geography and Economic Growth
 
02:48
If you look at the African continent, perhaps the first word to come to mind is "enormous." And that's true. You could fit most of the United States, China, India, and a lot of Europe, into Africa. But if you compare Africa to Europe, Europe has two to three times the length of coastline that Africa has. But what does coastline length have to do with anything? Well, coasts mean access to water. As benign as water might seem, it’s a major driver of economic growth. Adam Smith, the father of modern economics, argued that access to water reduced the cost of trade, and gave merchants access to larger markets. These larger markets incentivized specialization and innovation. These twin processes ultimately spurred trade activity, and consequently, economic growth. As an end result, civilization tended to grow wherever trade was easiest. If you want proof of this, think of a few major cities. Look at Istanbul, New York, Venice, Hong Kong, London, and similar areas. What do they all have in common? They all sit near a major coast or a major river. In contrast, look at some of the poorest areas in the world—places like Kampala, or Pointe-Noire. These places are all landlocked. Since goods are easier to transport over water than over land, trade in landlocked areas is more expensive. And what happens when trade is more expensive? It becomes harder to spark economic growth. What this all means is economic growth is not only affected by a country’s rules and institutions, but by a country’s natural blessings, or natural hindrances, too. The effects of geography on growth cannot be discounted.

How Much Money Should The Tooth Fairy Leave | Planet Money | NPR
 
04:01
How much should the tooth fairy leave? It's an eternal struggle of parenting, but it's also an overlooked economic indicator. For the past two decades, the price of a tooth has been going up much faster than you'd expect with inflation. We know that because Delta Dental, the insurance company and tongue twister, has been conducting the Tooth Fairy Poll, a nationally representative survey of how much kids are getting for their teeth, for two decades. Roughly 20 years ago, a tooth was hovering around $1.30. As of 2018, a tooth was pulling in $4.13. These kids are making out like bandits. That's good news for baby teeth-losers everywhere, but it's a bit more complicated if you're a tooth fairy concerned about the bottom line. In this video, we imagine a fantasy world where the tooth fairy is a sad-sack mid-level executive, just trying to keep his department in the black and his head above water.

Earth Trek: The Economics of the Future
 
03:38
“You know, we live in this monetized society where even like a generation ago there were a lot of functions that we didn't use money for. For example, childcare. Neighbors would watch each other's kids. Food preparation, most meals were prepared and eaten at home. These have been converted into services. Anytime something gets converted into goods and services, the GDP grows, the economy grows. Which is necessary in the money system we have today, based on interest. Money being lent into existence, subject to interest, so more money has to be paid back. The amount of money keeps growing. The amount of goods and services that are exchanged for money is also under the pressure to grow. We've converted all of these relationships and human functions into services. Then converted more and more of nature into goods. I think that the crisis today, stems from the fact that there's almost nothing left to convert into the realm of goods and services. How long can this last? George Carlin: We've polluted it, with this stuff, things, material goods, games, gizmos, toys, gadgets, having possessions. He's got a bigger truck, did you see his truck? It's bigger than mine! I'm getting a new truck. Here's a big truck, oh, I'm getting that one. You got a video in it? DVD too? Here I've got a DVD too, uhg, please. All that shit is nothing. MLK Jr. : We must always maintain a kind of divine discontent. Until the good societies realize, I never intend to adjust myself to economic conditions. That will take necessities from the many to give luxuries to the few. Jean-Luc Picard: Economics in the future are somewhat different. You see, money doesn't exist in the 24th century. Speaker 6: No money? Jean-Luc Picard: The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives. We work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity. Speaker 2: I tell the story of a more beautiful world in all its dimensions. It's the story of the connected self. Living in co-creative partnership with Mother Earth. Speaker 6: I envy you.

Singapore's Economic Success | The Economist
 
02:13
When it started life as an independent, separate country in 1965, Singapore’s prospects did not look good. Tiny and underdeveloped, it had no natural resources and a population of relatively recent immigrants with little shared history. The country’s first prime minister, the late Lee Kuan Yew is credited with transforming it. He called one volume of his memoirs, “From Third World to First”. Why did Singapore become an economic success? First, its strategic location and natural harbour helped. It is at the mouth of the Malacca Strait, through which perhaps 40% of world maritime trade passes. It was an important trading post in the 14th century, and again from the 19th, when British diplomat Sir Stamford Raffles founded the modern city. Now it is at the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic regions. Under Mr Lee, Singapore made the most of these advantages. Second, under Mr Lee, Singapore welcomed foreign trade and investment. Multinationals found Singapore a natural hub and were encouraged to expand and prosper. Third, the government was kept small, efficient and honest—qualities absent in most of Singapore’s neighbours. It regularly tops surveys for the ease of doing business. But the island city is not ideal. Although clean and orderly, it has harsh judicial punishments, a tame press and illiberal social policies. Homosexual acts, for example, remain illegal. Protest demonstrations are rarely permitted. Mr Lee saw his authoritarian style of government as an essential ingredient in Singapore’s success, emphasizing the island’s vulnerability in a potentially hostile neighbourhood. But younger people now question whether Singapore really is that fragile, and resent the restrictions on their freedom.

Why The Price Of Coca-Cola Didn't Change For 70 Years | Planet Money | NPR

The thing about prices is they tend to change. But for 70 years, between 1886 and the late 1950s, the price of a Coca-Cola was a shiny nickel. Think about how crazy that is: Between 1886 and the late '50s, you had two world wars, prohibition, the Great Depression. But through it all, one constant in life was the nickel Coke. This is the story of how two lawyers from Chattanooga struck a deal with the president of Coca-Cola that led to the company's pricing lockdown.

Learn more at http://bit.ly/video-lab Cuba’s economy works as a central planning model, where government ministries dole out resources and set everything from prices to inventories to salaries. The fact that a taxi driver can make so much more than a physician is a reflection of the Cuban government’s heavy focus on tourism. For years, the central planning apparatus has valued tourism as a key mechanism for both bringing in revenue as well as propagating the idea that Cuba is thriving. Many pesos are collected by the high prices on everything related to the tourism industry.

Beware of the Resource Curse of Boom and Bust Cycles
 
03:37
http://profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-tips/beware-of-the-resource-curse-of-boom-and-bust-cycles Beware of the Resource Curse of Boom and Bust Cycles Brazil rode high during its commodity boom and has been licking its wounds ever since. Venezuela bought friends in the Caribbean with discounted oil and now its citizens cannot find milk, diapers or toilet paper in the stores. Beware of the resource curse of boom and bust cycles in commodity dependent economies. Bloomberg writes about the economic meltdown in one resource rich economy, Mongolia. Mongolia, a mineral-rich and landlocked $12 billion economy bordering Russia and China, is staring at a full-blown balance of payments crisis. It’s caused barely a ripple in global financial markets, but the nation’s economic meltdown offers instructive lessons to far bigger resource-reliant economies like Brazil, Venezuela, Russia and Saudi Arabia. An overabundance of natural resources can result in lopsided economic growth, government waste and boom-bust cycles that can leave a country’s finances in tatters. Perhaps you have engaged in foreign direct investment in countries like Mongolia, Brazil, Russia or Saudi Arabia or have bought into stocks of companies that invest in these places. If that is the case you need to beware of what the economists call the resource curse of boom and bust cycles. Mongolia, like other resource rich countries, rode the Chinese economic boom to the top and then started to use their cash flow to get or issue credit to build too fast and syphon off their riches just as the riches were on the downturn. Investing in these countries can be profitable but how do you proceed in order to avoid losses? Our direct foreign investment article provides a few clues. Foreign direct investment is done by folks with lots of money and the intention to stay a course and make a profit. If you are looking for offshore investment ideas, take a look at where foreign direct investment goes year after year after year. There have been changes afoot regarding where foreign direct investment is going. A very useful reference in this regard is the just published United Nations study, World Investment Report 2013. We have used 2007 and 2012 as bookend comparison years as 2007 was just before the onset of the worst recession in three quarters of a century and 2012 is the most recent year reported. Of note is that direct foreign investment has fallen in the large majority of nations but there are exceptions that should help guide investors with their fundamental analysis of where to put their money in the years ahead. Take a look at the more recent World Investment Report of the United Nations for information as to where the smart money is going. Then you can pursue investment in commodity rich countries and often pick up bargains when the nation is going through the bust phase of their economic cycle. After all, the world always needs raw materials and the world economy always cycles up and down. Just don’t buy in at the top of a commodity boom only to lose your money in the bust. Beware the resource curse when investing. https://youtu.be/ADedXz9buSI

Macro 3.3- Long Run Aggregate Supply, Recession, and Inflation (LRAS)
 
03:41
In this video I explain the most important graph in your macroeconomics class. The aggregate demand and supply model. Make sure that you understand the idea of the long run aggregate supply and how to draw a recessionary gap and inflationary gap. Keep in mind that the "long run" is not a specific amount of time. The long run refers to enough time for resource prices (like wages) to adjust when there is a change in price level.Thanks for watching. Please subscribe.

How many times Pakistan took loans from IMF? Watch complete details of IMF and its packages
 
07:54
Pakistan and the IMF are no strangers. Since 1958, they have made 21 agreements for loans. The IMF is an international organisation of 189 countries working on monetary cooperation and international monetary stability. It helps member countries in three ways: Economic surveillance — monitoring the economic and financial policies of its 189 member countries. Lending — providing loans to member countries facing some degree of economic crises. Capacity building — modernizing member country economic policies and institutions, and training their people. The IMF lends its member countries money. These programmes can be divided into: Lending through GRA (General Resource Account) which is normal lending to not-so-poor and wealthy countries facing economic crisis. When it comes to Pakistan, we see an interesting trend with the IMF programmes — they are becoming longer and larger. By longer, we mean the pay-out period is increasing. For example, between 1958 and 1977, all the programmes were of one year. Coincidentally, all the IMF programmes in this period were also bail-outs or Stand-by Agreements. There were a total of seven programmes. Between 1980 and 1995, we were part of another seven programmes and all but one were between one and two years long. Between 1997 and 2013 — when the PML-N took out the last $6.4 billion loan — there were a total of six programmes. With the exception of one, all of them were approximately three years long. This will be the 13th time we will be going to the IMF to ask for a bail-out, and overall it will be the 22nd loan we will take from the IMF. #imf #pakistan #news

The Basics of Economics - Econ 101
 
10:17
I first started studying economics in my freshman year of college. It was one of the required classes and was very confusing to me at first until I started to actually become interested in the subject itself. It helped that I had some amazing professors that were able to teach in an entertaining way. One of my professors kept mentioning the following sentence that helped me grasp nearly every topic that was covered throughout the course - he simply said - people make decisions or work based on incentives. When a decision is made you are trading a scarce resource of yours for something else. This can be money, physical goods, or your time. You can apply this basically any decision you or a business or a country comes across and can think through the answers with common sense. It’s a fascinating subject. So - first thing - what is economics? The subject is very broad and defined by Merriam-Webster as “a social science concerned chiefly with description and analysis of the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services”. So essentially it is involved with basically every aspect of everyone’s life since the beginning of time. There are two main categories of economics - Microeconomics and Macroeconomics. We’ll start with Microeconomics - This is the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services within an individual area. This could be a firm, school, household, your own individual life. It’s basically the study of how each of these individual areas operate and how they make their decisions..such as should we turn the heat on in the house? Should we offer raises to our employees? Should I watch YouTube the rest of the night, or study for my upcoming examine. We could break each of these down into economic principles to analyze how these decisions should be made. Decisions are made when people decide that the benefit of doing or buying one thing outweighs the time to do or cost of something else. For example - should we turn the heat on? We may do this to make us more comfortable which will increase our productivity with whatever we are doing. We may choose not to turn the heat on because the cost of electricity or gas used outweighs the ability to be more comfortable. Should we raise our employees salaries? We will do this if their output will increase or if we feel like this will help reduce turnover which is a large expense for a company. We will not do this if the employees will remain at their current level of productivity and we are continuing to have the same level of turnover. Should I continue to watch YouTube or study for my exam? You may continue to watch YouTube if you see it as benefiting your well being, providing you with entertainment or you may continue to watch because your able to learn something from YouTube faster then reading through pages in your textbook. So the other side of economics is the study of Macroeconomics. Unlike micro, macro is study of the economy as a whole. For example, an economist working in the field of macroeconomics would be looking into overall unemployment, inflation and deflation, national income, and gross domestic product or GDP. Each of these topics are massive and they are directly affected by the decisions made at the micro level. Hence, it is very important to grasp the concepts of both micro and macro economics. Micro is bottom up, while macro is top down. Every decision made at the microlevel will somewhat affect the overall macro level of a school, country, or a person. And remember - people work for incentives. For example - you decided to skip your workout because you felt your time was better spent eating and watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory. The incentive was to feel comfortable rather than put yourself through voluntary pain. You receive immediate satisfaction from the sugar in the cookies and the corny jokes provided by the television show. This will slightly affect your overall well-being and shouldn’t hurt you too bad unless you start to make this a habit. If you make the decision to skip your workout everyday so you can eat cookies and watch TV you will start to see your body and mind degrade. Others may start to mention that you’ve put on weight or you don’t look as healthy as you once were and your may find yourself at the doctor more often than your would like. Your incentive will change and your may stop buying cookies, you may stop watching TV, and you will then find yourself at the gym to improve your health. This is an extreme example, but it helps to understand how incentives can be applied to all decisions. I challenge you to start thinking about all of the decisions you make each day and really break down the incentives as to why you are choosing one thing over another. You can then start applying the same concepts to your school or where you work.
