The economy

Key Concepts

Q. What is the economy and how does it work?

A. Economy - The sum of all the work performed by humans.

The economy is driven by demand. Business cannot generate profit if no one buys the resulting product.

For the economy as a whole, too little demand results in unemployment.

Too much demand results in inflation.

Having the right demand means balancing the segment of the economy which produces profit with the segment of the economy which does not generate profit.

In an advanced technology driven economy, government has an important role in achieving this balance. Government must exert controls on the money supply to control inflation and ensure sufficient money in the economy to support optimum demand.
