    The Phillips Curve Economists agree that unemployment and inflation are two of the major macroeconomic problems of the twentieth century. If a relationship between the two existed then this would be a major break through for the macro management of the economy. Phillips' work was empirical - started with evidence and worked towards a theory. The causation for the Phillips theory was that the level of unemployment caused the rate of change in money wages to be what it was. 'What economic

  • Demand Curves

    demand curve. A demand curve is a graphical representation of the data in table with values of demand called a demand schedule. A good that is in greater demand do to income increases is known as a normal good. A inferior good is a good that is in less demand even though the income increases. When this situation occurs the demand curve is positive sloping. A giffen good is a special type of inferior good where demand increases when price increases. The graph below is a sample demand curve, where

  • The Bell Curve

    1220 Words  | 5 Pages

    Through readings and class discussion, I have gained a tremendous amount of insight about the characteristics of racism and oppression, which exist within society. After reading the article The Bell Curve, by Richard J. Henderson, and Charles Murray, I was enraged. This article was clearly written with a white, male’s perspective, and rarely takes into consideration the cultural, structural and political strengths of oppression and racism. In order to fully understand welfare and the precipitants

    Learning Curve Thought provoking and startling, the movie “Learning Curve” awakened in us, as viewers, the uncomfortable reality of where our society and the educational system as a whole are clearly at odds. Mr. Walmsley was hired to substitute at an inner city high school where the same problems that we find today in many schools were brought to an unbelievable level of surreal chaos. The same problems that we witness everyday in our schools were present in this movie, but with an intensity and

  • Demand Curve

    One reason why the aggregate demand curve has a downward slope is because of the wealth effect. The wealth effect is the change in quantity demanded caused by the change in price level affecting real wealth. An increase in price level would cause the value of real wealth to fall. When there is a fall in the value of wealth, there is a decrease in quantity demanded. Conversely, a decrease in price level would result in higher value of wealth, causing an increase in quantity demanded. Another reason

  • Tangents and Normals of Curves

    1132 Words  | 5 Pages

    Tangents and Normals of Curves If you differentiate the equation of a curve, you will get a formula for the gradient of the curve. Before you learnt calculus, you would have found the gradient of a curve by drawing a tangent to the curve and measuring the gradient of this. This is because the gradient of a curve at a point is equal to the gradient of the tangent at that point. Example: Find the equation of the tangent to the curve y = x³ at the point (2, 8). dy = 3x² dx Gradient

  • Finding Gradients of Curves

    5335 Words  | 22 Pages

    Finding Gradients of Curves Introduction I am going to investigate the gradients of different curves and try to work out a pattern that I could use to find the gradient of any curve. I will draw graphs of a selection of curves, some by hand, some using Autograph and some using Excel. I will use three methods to investigate the graphs. Firstly, I will draw tangents to the curves at 4 or 5 points and measure the gradients. Secondly, I will draw chords between x = 1 and 4 or 5 points and

  • The Physics of the Curve Ball

    800 Words  | 4 Pages

    The Physics of the Curve Ball Dad said that one of these days I would figure it out, but to this day I am still clueless. I have always been able to throw a decent curve ball; you don’t just throw 6 one hit games in your high school career without one. I have always wondered why and how the ball curves through the air, and it wasn’t until now that I have really had the chance to research a topic that has puzzled me for so long. I would bet that even pitchers in the “Big show” don’t know how
