ENC Team 6's curator insight, November 7, 2013 10:05 AM

-An increase in aggregate demand (AD to AD2) causes higher real GDP (Y1 to Y2), therefore firms employ more workers and unemployment falls.

-However, as the economy gets closer to full capacity, we see an increase in inflationary pressures.

-With lower unemployment, workers are able to demand higher money wages, which causes wage inflation.

-Also firms can put up prices due to rising demand.Therefore, in this situation, we see falling unemployment, but higher inflation.

But this report is more optimistic and points to a surge in exports to BRIC nations and also the fruits of foreign direct investment in fast-growing countries. How big is the size of the export multplier effect?
