USER CHARGE: A tax that's disguised as a price--a charge for the use of a publicly provided good. Government produces and supplies a number of near-public goods, like education, libraries, parks, and transportation systems. The "prices" for these goods are user charges. The logic is that people who benefit from the good and are willing to pay, should pay for them. While this helps pay production costs, it tends to be inefficient.

    Macro Basics

    In lesson, we move into the formal study of macroeconomics, laying the groundwork for lessons to come. In particular, this lesson introduces several important macroeconomics concepts and notions. Among the list of more important notions are the role an economy plays in the study of macroeconomics, the two key macroeconomic problems of inflation and unemployment, how these problems are related business-cycle instability, and economic stabilization policies designed to correct these problems.

    LEAKAGES LINE

    A graphical representation of the relation between the level of aggregate production and one or more leakages. The three leakages (non-consumption uses of the income generated from aggregate production) are saving, taxes, and imports. The leakages line sequentially adds, or layers, each of these three uses of income depending on the number of sectors used in the analysis (two, three, or four). The slope of the leakages line depends on which if any of the uses of income are induced by aggregate production. The leakages line is combined with the injections line (containing investment expenditures, government purchases, and exports) in the Keynesian injections-leakages model.
