Macroeconomics: Crash Course Economics Calculus at a Fifth Grade Level 1 week ago   13:43

This week, Adriene and Jacob teach you about macroeconomics. This is the stuff of big picture economics, and the major movers in the economy. Like taxes and monetary policy and inflation and policy. We need this stuff, because if you don't have a big picture of the economy, crashes and panics are more likely. Of course, economics is extremely complex and unpredictable. Today we'll talk about GDP as a measure of a country's economic health, the basics of economic analysis, and even a little about full employment, unemployment

Pessoas param de comprar coisas, negócios demitem trabalhadores, trabalhadores ficam com menos renda e compram menos, mais pessoas perdem o emprego. Desemprego cíclico.
Inflação faz as pessoas quererem salários mais altos, taxas de juros aumentam então as pessoas compram menos carros e casas.
Deflação faz as pessoas investirem menos pois esperam que os preços vão continuar caindo, o que diminuí o PIB e aumenta a taxa de desemprego, virando um ciclo. Menos demanda.
PIB é composto por consumidores, investimentos, investimento governamental e investimento externo.
1.Otimismo, atividade econômica grande>Otimismo, atividade econômica incompetente>Medo, menos investimento e demissões>As coisas estão ruins e sempre vão ficar ruins, menos investimento de vez por ceticismo.

Does stuff owned by a nation but located outside of it count as part of GDP? i.e Oil owned by british located in Iran, nuclear weapons owned by America placed in Turkey, etc.
