This module explores the major concepts of economic analysis. Economic value is among the many possible approaches to specify and measure worth. It can be defined as the worth of a commodity or service according to the consumers’ expectations about it. Many measures of economic worth are based on what consumers want. Sometimes this is called the “Wants Formula.”
The theory of diminishing returns
This means that as output or revenue increases, the price level decreases. This has been a principle of free-market capitalism since Adam Smith’s day and was central to classical economic thought. Deflationary periods occur when economic values tend to increase because money and credit are low, but when the bank prints too much currency and loans it is in the process of diminishing returns and the economy enters a deflationary period in which prices tend to decrease because there is not enough investment capital to support the increased demand for goods and services.
The concept of natural resources represents the resources that are not only used in the production of wealth, but also in the operation of the economy. A major part of this list includes capital, human capital, and non-monetary assets. A major part of the “ecology” of the classical political economy is the principle of individual property rights. This means that land, plant, and machinery should be owned and controlled by individuals as natural economic resource bases, with the state retaining a limited right to intervene to protect these natural resource bases from external influences such as pollution.
Non-monetary economic resources include plant and animals. Labor, on the other hand, is what produces wealth. Labor is a category of the four natural economic resources mentioned above, and it can be defined as the ability to work. All people have the capability to work, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or any other classification. In fact, humans have been able to create technology which allows them to do many different types of labor such as cooking, cleaning, driving, and so on. The concept of “economic resource allocation” helps determine the distribution of the labor and its value through economic exchanges.
Entrepreneurial ability is what determines the level of success of an economy. The size of the entrepreneurial ability of a country reflects its overall level of success and poverty. In addition, entrepreneurial ability can be measured by the amount of venture capital available to a business or individual.
Venture capital represents the capital of an entrepreneur or group of entrepreneurs that are invested in order to start or expand a specific company or entity. Examples of entrepreneurial resources used by businesses include the money needed to purchase raw materials, pay workers, rent offices, and buy machinery and technology used in production.
Capital represents the total value of all the assets owned by a business or a specific entity. The total value of these assets represents the value of all the productive inputs put into the business. The price level of any asset reflects its supply and demand elasticity. The price level of capital reflects the supply and demand elasticity of the capital itself and is related to the elasticity of business capital.
Economic concepts of economic growth, capital goods demand, investment, entrepreneurship, and economic wealth are all part of the broader field of economic concepts. These concepts help us to determine how an economy grows and develops.
