4434Interactive graph of the aggregate supply and demand model
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=395182
The purpose of this interactive multimedia material is to enable students to learn and comprehend the cause-effect relationship in the full aggregate demand and supply (AD/AS) model and the observe the adjustment of the economy in the short and the long term. The program assumes that students are already familiar with the underlying concepts of the graphic representation of the AD/AS model. The tool also has a number of simple case studies that illustrate the capacity and limits of the model and explain certain real economic situations (both historical and recent).Interactive graph of a competitive market
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=395352
The purpose of this interactive technical note is to help students to learn and comprehend the effect of changes in the variables of supply and demand in a microeconomic market assuming perfect competition. Students can interact with both curves and see the equilibrium process in terms of prices and quantities exchanged. The program assumes that students are familiar with the underlying concepts of the graphic representation of a market with perfect competition. For a better understanding of the main effects of the changes in the curves, this graphic resource allows students to make only one move per curve and does not envisage changes in the curves´ elasticity. Students can interact with both curves (demand and supply) either separately or jointly. There are also simple exercises that enable students to test their comprehension of how the market works and check their answers through interaction with the graphic.Balance of payments
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=395330
Interactive technical note where students can learn how to draft a balance of payments and learn how it works. This is structured in three dynamics with very different objectives. The first two focus on an orderly or systematic drafting of a balance of payments, defining its structure and assigning a place to each item and the corresponding items to each sub-balance. There are also exercises with some simple questions to test the students´ understanding of the measurement and interpretation of a balance of payments and there are some practical applications of using a balance of payments as an instrument for economic analysis.Interactive graph of aggregate demand
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=364726
Description Interactive technical note that enables students to see the effect of changes in the economic variables that are part of aggregate demand.The purpose is to enable students to learn and comprehend the cause-effect relation in the short-term between the economic variables that make up an economys aggregate demand. There are a number of interactive exercises that enable students to understand how the aggregate demand curve works; the answers can be checked against the graphic.Interactive graph of aggregate demand policies
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=395354
Interactive technical note that enables students to see the effect of changes in monetary and fiscal aggregate demand policies on the adjustment of the goods and services and asset markets. The main purpose of this tool is to enable students to observe the main two-way effects, in the short and medium term, of monetary and fiscal aggregate demand policies on the overall adjustment of both sides of the economy (real and monetary). The tool assumes that students have already studied the concepts underlying the adjustment processes of the goods and services market and the asset market. For a better understanding of the main effects of monetary and fiscal policies on the overall adjustment of both markets, this graphic resource does not envisage simultaneous execution of both policies nor their effects on capital movements and exchange rates. The tool also contains some simple exercises that enable students to contrast their answers by using the interactive graph.Compensation
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=365703
Technical note that explains the criteria and procedures for the analysis of remuneration, that serves as the basis for preparing a wage review plan.This interactive technical note includes a number of interactive graphs that enable students to understand concepts such as internal equity, external competitiveness and the wage scale.Interactive graph of exchange rates
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=395333
This interactive tool enables students to understand the impact of exchange rate fluctuations on the foreign exchange market in the short term. Students can interact with the variables of the currency demand and supply curves and see the effect on the exchange rate. This can be used by students on their own or by teachers to support their explanations in the classroom. This interactive multimedia material enables students to learn and grasp the cause-effect relation of the variables that affect currency supply and demand and their impact on exchange rates in the short term. It assumes that they already know the theoretical concepts underlying the determination and adjustment of exchange rates. This resource also contains some exercises to test students´ comprehension of how the currency demand and supply curves work and cross-check their answers via the graph.
