    In this video I quickly cover all the concepts and graph that you will see in an AP macroeconomics or college-level introductory macroeconomics course. Dn't take notes. Just get the big picture.
    *Note* At 25:48, the signs are reversed.
    I talk about scarcity, opportunity cost, the PPC, comparative advantage, supply and demand, GDP, unemployment, inflation, aggregate demand and supply, LRAS, Phillips Curve, economic growth, fiscal policy, money, banking, monetary policy, the Money Market, loanable funds, the balance of payments, and exchange rates. Wow! That's a lot of stuff. Good luck on your test!

      My professor’s voice puts everyone to sleep and he stops mid way sentence for like 5 minutes in order to look up a graph online. Literally no one knows what he’s talking about lol at least he’s nice tho

    most of you are probably here after watching his microeconomics series. Let me tell, i passed with flying marks thanks to Mr Clifford. i wouldn't be too stingy about donating the $10 - not for the ultimate review package, but a way to say thanks for doing us all a huge favor by putting in the effort for these vids. You rock acdc \m/

    Question Title The impact of tax
    Question Description
    The Case:
    Poisonous smog has become a 5th season in Pakistan. The quality of air turned so bad that Government of Punjab decided to close the schools in three big cities (Lahore, Faisalabad, Gujranwala). A major factor behind the hazardous air quality is the combustion of fossil fuel. The unregulated use of fossil fuel (vehicles, industrial use), emits lethal particles such as PM2.5 that penetrate our lungs and bloodstream; and responsible for many diseases like asthma, pulmonary diseases, and heart attacks. The use of fossil fuel is required for economic growth but unregulated combustion extracts an enormous social cost in the shape of society’s poor health. Carbon taxes have been efficient in bringing down CO2 emissions. In Sweden, the implementation of carbon tax showed 25% reduction in the level of emission with 60% increase in their GDP.
    Keeping in view the above scenario, logically discuss the impact of the implementation of carbon tax on the consumers and producers.
    Answer me here: thanks
