Notes for "Aggregate Demand"

Key Terms

Aggregate Demand

The total amount of goods and services demanded in an economy at a specific point in time and at a prevailing price level.

Exchange Rate Effect

Exchange rate movements impact demand; domestic currency depreciation increases the cost of imports, resulting in a potential decrease in imports, M; the lower domestic exchange rate increases foreign demand for domestic goods, increasing exports, X.
