The Great Depression
... it is important to know the theories
of John Maynard Keynes. Keynes is known as the "father of modern economics"
because he was the first to accurately describe some of the causes and cures for
recessions and depressions.
In a normal economy, Keynes said, there is a circular flow of money. My
spending becomes part of your earnings, and your spending becomes part of my
earnings. For various reasons, however, this circular flow can falter. People
start hoarding money when times become tough; but times become tougher when
everyone starts hoarding money. This breakdown results in a recession.
To get the circular flow of money started again, Keynes suggested that ...

The Modified Market Economy

the wealthy people. The basic reason for the modified market economy is that
the free market does not produce an efficient allocation of resources, and that
the free market does not distribute output in a socially desirable way. For
example in a modified market, the government regulate the flow a income a bit so
that not only the rich make money. In a market economy the rich get richer and
the poor get poorer as there is no regulation in terms of income distribution.

which is present in a modified market, makes society more evenly spread rather

... wars. The domestic cola war between Coca-Cola and
Pepsi is still raging. However, the two soft-drink giants also recognize that
opportunities for growth in many of the mature markets have slowed. Both Coca-
Cola, which sold 10 billion cases of soft-drinks in 1992, and Pepsi now find
themselves asking, "Where will sales of the next 10 billion cases come from?"
The answer lies in the developing world, where income levels and appetites for
Western products are at an all time high.

These wants, however they may be engendered, cannot all be satisfied because there are not enough resources to produce the desired number of goods and services.

Efficient Market Theory: A Contradiction Of Terms
... Market Theory: A Contradiction of Terms
Efficient Market Theory (EMT) is based on the premise that, given the
efficiency of information technology and market dynamics, the value of the
normal investment stock at any given time accurately reflects the real
value of that stock. The price for a stock reflects its actual underlying
value, financial managers cannot time stock and bond sales to take
advantage of "insider" information, sales of stocks and bonds will not
depress prices, and companies cannot "cook the books" to artificially
manipulate stock and bond prices. However, information technology and
market dynamics are based upon the workings of ...

during Nixon's presidency. Budget deficits have grown larger and more frequent
in the last half-century. In the 1980s they soared to record levels. The
Government cut income tax rates, greatly increased defense spending, and didn't
cut domestic spending enough to make up the difference. Also, the deep recession
of the early 1980s reduced revenues, raising the deficit and forcing the
Government to spend much more on paying interest for the national debt at a time
when interest rates were high. As a result, the national debt ...
