UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICE: An activity on the part of employers to discourage legal labor union actions or on the part of labor unions to discourage legal nonunion employee actions. In the never ending battle between labor and management to gain the upper hand in the labor market each side has engaged in practices to thwart the power of the other side. Management commonly undertook what are now termed unfair labor practices in the early stages of the labor union movement to prevent unions from gaining power. Once unions gained power, however, then too engaged in unfair labor practices to keep and enhance that power. Unfair labor practices by management were largely outlawed by the National Labor Relations Act. Unfair labor practices by labor unions were largely outlawed by the Taft-Hartley Act.

CONSUMER PRICE INDEX: An index of prices of goods and services typically purchased by urban consumers. The Consumer Price Index, commonly known by its abbreviation, CPI, is compiled and published monthly by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), using price data obtained from an elaborate survey of 25,000 retail outlets and quantity data generated by the Consumer Expenditures Survey. The CPI is unquestionably one of the most widely recognized macroeconomic price indexes, running second only to the Dow Jones averages in the price index popularity contest. It is used not only as an indicator of the price level and inflation, but also to convert nominal economic indicators to real terms and to adjust wage and income payments (such as Social Security) for inflation.

PERFECT COMPETITION, PROFIT MAXIMIZATION

A perfectly competitive firm is presumed to produce the quantity of output that maximizes economic profit--the difference between total revenue and total cost. This production decision can be analyzed directly with economic profit, by identifying the greatest difference between total revenue and total cost, or by the equality between marginal revenue and marginal cost.
