Economic systems and economic goals

  1. 1. Economic Systems and Economic Goals
  2. 2. Economic Systems • Economic systems evolved in response to the fundamental economic problem faced by all societies: unlimited wants and limited resources, also known as scarcity. • An economic system deals with the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services in a society.
  3. 3. Economic Systems • Economic systems differ in how they answer three economic questions: – What is produced? – How is it produced? – For whom should we produce? • Economic systems also differ as to who owns the factors of production and they method used to coordinate and direct economic decisions.
  4. 4. Economic Goals • Each economic system you will experience in the simulation focuses on certain economic goals. • Here are the six economic goals: – Economic Freedom – Economic Equity – Economic Efficiency – Economic Security – Economic Stability – Economic Growth
  5. 5. Economic Freedom • This concerns the freedom of the marketplace. • It provides members of a society the ability to undertake economic direction and actions, with little government intervention. • Examples: – Freedom of consumers to decide how they wish to spend money among various goods and services. – Freedom of workers to choose occupations; to change jobs; and to organize labor unions. – Freedom of individuals to establish businesses; decide what and how to produce, with limited government intervention.
  6. 6. Economic Equity • The situation in which the outcome of an economic transaction is fair to each party. • An outcome can usually be considered fair if each party enters into a transaction freely and is not unknowingly at a disadvantage. http://glencoe.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0002072011/student_view0/chapter15/glossary.html
  7. 7. Economic Efficiency • An economic principle holding that businesses and individuals should fulfill as many of society’s needs as possible while maximizing the provided resources. • The greater the output for a given input, the more efficient the process. http://glencoe.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0002072011/student_view0/chapter15/glossary.html
  8. 8. Economic Security • The condition of having stable income or other resources to support a standard of living now and in the foreseeable future.
  9. 9. Economic Stability • This goal refers to an absence of excessive fluctuations. • An economy with fairly constant output growth and low and stable inflation and low unemployment would be considered stable.
  10. 10. Economic Growth • This is the increase in the capacity of an economy to produce goods and services, compared from one period of time to another. www.investopiedia.com
