ACCESSIBILITY: The location of economic activity (especially in terms of land) relative to other activities. As real estate agents are prone to say, "The three most important factors in real estate are 'location, location, location.'" Accessibility determines how easy or difficult (read this as costly) it is to allocate good, services, and resources. Transportation is a key factor in accessibility. Efficient, low cost transportation systems improve accessibility.

AmosWEB is an Internet-based resource of economics information offered by AmosWEB LLC. AmosWEB LLC was established April 1, 2000 to publish economics information and instructional resources through the World Wide Web.

At AmosWEB, we take economics seriously, but with a touch of whimsy. We recognize the importance of economics to our lives, careers, and citizenship, but we try to have a little fun with it along the way. On the one had... serious. On the other hand... whimsical. A balance much like that of demand and supply.

AmosWEB began its Internet existence under the name AmosWORLD. (You might see AmosWEB listed as AmosWORLD in some search engines. AmosWorld.com is currently maintained by a talented artist named Amos Kmiec.) We have been providing economics information through the World Wide Web since the earliest days of the World Wide Web, when memory was measured in kilobytes, disks were floppy, and PPP was the primary way to get online.

Over the years, we've provided economics information to students, instructors, and web surfers on six continents (we're still working on Antarctic). We have consistently ranked in the top 10 percent of all websites on the Internet (according to Rank.com). Our most popular resource is the AmosWEB GLOSS*arama, an extensive glossary of economics terms and concepts. We also offer the increasingly popular AmosWEB Encyclonomic WEB*pedia, and encyclopedia of economics.

We're also very proud of the AmosWEB eTutor, a subscription service used by all sorts of students seeking a little extra help with their course work and the AmosWEB Programmed Learning System (A*PLS), an integrated online learning system designed for traditional classes, hybrid courses, and online distance learning.

The principle author and content developer of AmosWEB is Orley M. Amos, PhD, a Professor of Economics at Oklahoma State University with a couple of decades of instructional experience. Assistance has been provided over the years by Antonio Avalos, PhD, an Assistant Professor of Economics at California State University, Fresno.

Fact 3: Our Unfair Lives

Across the interstate from the Mega-Mart Discount Warehouse Super Center resides the Shady Valley Central Town Sprawling Hills Shopping Mall -- a prime example of our economy's climate-controlled, suburban shopping phenomenon. Our pedestrian's ramble through the economy would be totally inadequate if we did not spend at least one day strolling past the endless rows of stores with their displays of clothes, shoes, electronics, clothes, luggage, clothes, cheese pretzels, and of course clothes. Our pedestrian trip, however, is not concerned with the products exhibited beyond the stylish glass windows. No, our jumping off point is the gadzillions of people who pass us by, bump into us, get in our way, and generally make our shopping experience comparable to a commuter train during the rush hour.

Those who comprise the shopping crowd are short, tall, young, old, fat, thin, black, white, happy, and sad. More importantly for our present discussion, however, is that some are rich and some are not-so-rich. A few of the wealthier shoppers actually buy the products framed by the picturesque windows that line the air-conditioned quaint mid-way of Shady Valley Central Town Sprawling Hills Shopping Mall. Others must be content to ogle the prominently displayed products or perhaps buy an occasional cheese pretzel.
