HOMOGENEOUS OF DEGREE ONE: A property of an equation the exists if independent variables are increased by a constant value, then the dependent variable is increased by the same value. In other words, if the independent variables are doubled, then the dependent variable is also doubled. This property often surfaces in the analysis of production functions. A production function homogeneous of degree one is said to have constant returns to scale.

INFLEXIBLE PRICES

The proposition that some prices adjust slowly in response to market shortages or surpluses. This condition is most important for macroeconomic activity in the short run and short-run aggregate market analysis. In particular, inflexible prices (also termed rigid prices or sticky prices) are a key reason underlying the positive slope of the short-run aggregate supply curve. Prices tend to be the most inflexible in resource markets, especially labor markets, and the least inflexible in financial markets, with product markets falling between the two.

Paying TAXES

The time has come to take a firm stand! The Shady Valley Gazette Tribune-Journal has published an inflammatory editorial calling for a "pedestrian" tax on anyone who ambles around the economy. This tax, as every pedestrian would surely agree, is misguided and short-sighted. It's also unfair and probably unconstitutional. How DARE the editors of the Shady Valley Gazette Tribune-Journal call for a "pedestrian" tax. Sure they argue that ambling pedestrians should help pay for the sidewalks, traffic signals, and other assorted public goods. But, it's certainly not in MY best interest as a pedestrian to pay this misguided, short-sighted, unfair, and probably unconstitutional tax.
