As far as public spending is concerned, it is expenditure incurred by the public sector in the course of its activities. There are many ways to measure public spending, in which total managed expenditure, departmental expenditure limits and annual managed expenditures are at the top. Governments have obligation to spend on its people as it collects tax money from them. For instance, government always invests in local infrastructure for certain improvements. It is beauty of democratic solutions that it makes government responsible to take better care of its people.
It is the theory of modern economic tools to study problems and traditional chaos prevailing in regional settings. Public choice enables political forces and economical forces to healthy interact with each other. It calculates the importance of political forces for economic development. Globalization has failed all outdated practices, which were just about the development of unanimous economic activity. Today, countries have to develop significant political relationships to foster economic activity. Eventually, public choice is highly interlinked with political trends setting.
The macroeconomic unemployment
Macroeconomic unemployment is the result of ineffective macroeconomic forces, which causes unemployment rate higher day by day. Unemployment rate is badly increasing all over the world. Companies haven’t been in condition to support large workforce. However, many of them have started practicing cost cut strategy; employee retrenchment is the easiest and simplest way to reduce cost. If unemployment rate is 1% then equation would be as below.
% change in real GDP = 3% – 2 x (change in unemployment rate)
Inflation and deflation
When large amount of money is chasing for a few products then it would called inflation. People often lose their financial capability to bear their expenditure during inflation trends. Money value depreciates during inflationary trend, and product prices used to hike up during these trends.
When few amount of money is chasing for many products it would be called deflationary trends. It is reversely proportional to inflationary trends. People can purchase all desired products within limited budgets. Money value often increases during such trends.
Economic measurement is to be done by the help of gross domestic production. It indicates the money value of all domestically produced products. On other hand, gross national production is another valuable tool to measure the health of economy.
GNP= FCE + GCF+ (X − M)
Global economic growth and development
Global economic growth and economic development have been increased by increase in export units, if some country domestically consumes all produced resources then it would not be in position to develop sound international relationships today.
Real GDP and the price level in long run
Real GDP is physical calculation of gross domestic production, when economists don’t make nominal GDP as base point to compare GDP growth. As far as price level is concerned, price phenomena have direct linkage with demand supply mechanism. Here is a example for understanding.
Year CPI Nominal Interest Rate Inflation Rate Real Interest Rate
1 100 – – –
2 110 15% 10% 5%
3 120 13% 9.10% 3.90%
4 115 8% -4.20% 12.20%
Government spending policies that sways over macroeconomic conditions. However, these police impacts on government spending, tax rates and interest rates in order to control the economic forces.
