SHORT-RUN SUPPLY CURVE, MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION: Market control by a monopolistically competitive firm means that it does not have a supply relation between the quantity of output produced and the price. By way of comparison a perfectly competitive firm DOES have a short-run supply curve. The small amount of market control by a monopolistically competitive firm means that its' price is NOT equal to marginal revenue, and thus it does NOT equate marginal cost and price. As such, a monopolistically competitive firm does not move along it's marginal cost curve. A monopolistic competition does not necessarily supply larger quantities at higher prices or smaller quantities at lower prices.

BANK PANIC OF 1907: A relatively serious economic downturn, that is business-cycle contraction, in 1907 that was caused by serious, big-time, instability in the banking system. This major bank panic was so severe (the term depression is more applicable than recession) that it prompted Congress to establish the Federal Reserve System, which came into existence in 1913. See fractional-reserve banking.

RECOGNITION LAG

The time lag that it takes to identify and document the existence of an economic problem that might require government action. The recognition lag arises because it takes time to collect and analyze economic data; to verify that an actual problem exists. This "inside lag" is one of four policy lags associated with monetary and fiscal policy. The other two "inside lags" are decision lag and implementation lag, and one "outside lag" is implementation lag. All four policy lags can reduce the effectiveness of business-cycle stabilization policies and can even destabilize the economy.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time looking for a downtown retail store hoping to buy either a tall storage cabinet with five shelves and a secure lock or a birthday greeting card for your grandmother. Be on the lookout for poorly written technical manuals.
