ACCELERATOR: The ratio between investment expenditures and the change in gross domestic product. This is based on the notion that business investment depends on the rate of growth of aggregate output. If the economy is expanding, in other words, then the business sector invests in more capital goods to produce the extra output needed. This accelerator effect modifies and magnifies the simply multiplier effect based on the induced consumption and the marginal propensity to consume.

An understanding of economics also involves:

Scarcity. We have limited resources, but unlimited wants and needs. The study of economics is essentially the study of scarcity.
Opportunity Cost. Using resources for one alternative prevents using them for another. Opportunity cost is the highest valued alternative.
Analysis. Economics is an analytical discipline that answers 'What if...?' questions.

Scarcity dictates that we must answer the three basic questions of allocation are:
  • What? What goods and services will be produced with society's resources?
  • How? How will society's resources be used to produce the goods and services?
  • For whom? Who receives the goods and services produced with society's resources?
