Lecture 21: Capital Supply and Markets I

Lecture 21: Capital Supply and Markets I

This video was recorded at 14.01SC Principles of Microeconomics, Fall 2011. During most of our discussion of consumer decisions and the production decisions of firms, we have focused on only labor and the decisions that individuals make about whether or not to work. We know from our study of production functions that firms also use capital to produce output. Where does capital come from? Not surprisingly, it is the result of another consumer decision, the decision of whether or not to save. This lecture analyzes the decisions consumers and firms make in the capital market.
