RIVAL CONSUMPTION: Consumption of a good by one person imposes a cost on, or prevents consumption of the good by, another person. Some goods, like food, have extremely rival consumption. One person, and only one person, gets the benefit. Other goods, like national defense, have no consumption rivalry, everyone can benefit simultaneously without imposing a cost on others. This is one of the two key characteristics of a good (the other is excludability) that distinguishes between common-property goods, near-public goods, private goods, and public goods.

How dare they! This is the good old U. S. of A. We don't want any foreigners buying up good old U. S. of A. property, do we? Before nuking Northwest Queoldiola we should consider this potentially messy topic of foreign investment.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time strolling through a department store seeking to buy either a wall poster commemorating the 2000 Olympics or a flower arrangement with a lot of roses for your grandmother. Be on the lookout for infected paper cuts.
