Unit 7, Lesson 33
- We mixed up our descriptions of money market accounts, which are deposited at banks, and money market funds, which are mutual funds held through investment companies. Here is our updated description of money market funds on page 207:
Money market funds are mutual funds that invest in relatively safe and short-term securities such as U.S. Treasury bills. Money market funds usually earn more than bank savings accounts but less than funds that invest in stocks.
Unit 11, Lesson 55
- On the pie chart on page 344, two of the labels are switched. The large green section on the right should be labeled "Social Security - 23.9%". The blue section on the left should be labeled "Non-Defense - 15.8%".
Unit 12, Lesson 56
- In the paragraph giving a simple example of GDP, we mixed up the names we used. The corrected paragraph should read: "We can determine the GDP either by totaling all expenditures or by totaling all income. This is true because one person’s expenditure is another person’s income. Any exchange has two parties, the seller and the buyer. If Doug makes an object and sells it to Olivia for $100, then Olivia’s expenditure is $100 and Doug’s income is $100. This exchange has increased the GDP by $100."
- On question #1 in Lesson 55, question #9 in Lesson 57, and question #2 in Lesson 60, we inadvertently printed the answer after the question. You can white out the answer.
