OTHER PRICES: A handy term referring to the prices of other goods that affect either the demand for a good or the supply of the good. On the demand side, other prices can be those for substitutes-in-consumption or complements-in-consumption. On the supply side, other prices can be those for either substitutes-in-production or complements-in-production. Changes in other prices cause shifts in the corresponding demand or supply curves.

FDA: The abbreviation for Food and Drug Administration, which is an agency of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services that deals with the safety and effectiveness of food, cosmetics, drugs, and medical implements. It was formally established in 1906 to investigate and test what turned out to be some pretty dangerous and disgusting food additives that were being fed to an unaware public. The FDA is now charged with the task of keeping food and drugs free of hazardous additives and to ensure that they perform as promised. Drugs must undergo rigorous, lengthy tests on animals and humans to prove they're safe and effective.

This can be thought of as net exports, exports minus imports, that the foreign sector undertakes regardless of the state of the economy. Autonomous net exports are affected by the net exports determinants, which cause a change in the intercept and a shift of the net exports line.

A thousand years before metal coins were developed, clay tablet "checks" were used as money by the Babylonians.
"Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage."
