A POSTERIORI: A conclusion reached through logical reasoning based on facts and observations about the real world. This notion is closely related to the scientific verification of hypotheses and the identification of principles. A similar sounding, but opposite term is a prior, which is a unverified presumption made before an analysis is undertaken. For example, in the study of economics of crime you might assume, a priori, that people are basically "good", and conclude, a posteriori, that people are more likely to commit crimes when the threat of capture and conviction is lower.

Factors of production, productive factors, or resources are the 'stuff' used to create wants-and-needs-satisfying goods.

Economists have four official groups, or categories, for our resources, for our factors of production:

  • Labor: human effort, both physical and mental.
  • Capital: machines, equipment, tools, and buildings.
  • Land: raw materials or natural resources.
  • Entrepreneurship: risk-taking organizers of production.

OTHER PRICES, DEMAND DETERMINANT

The prices of other goods that influence the decision to purchase a particular good, which are assumed constant when a demand curve is constructed. Other prices can be for goods that are either substitutes-in-consumption or complements-in-consumption. This is one of five demand determinants that shift the demand curve when they change. The other four are other prices, buyers' preferences, buyers' expectations, and number of buyers.
