SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION: (SEC) A federal government agency that regulates the trading of corporate stock to protect investors against unscrupulous practices. Like a number of other federal regulatory agencies, the SEC was established in the 1930s--1934 to be exact. The impetus for its formation was to prevent investors from manipulating the stock market and to prevent other practices that contributed to the 1929 stock market crash. The SEC has all sorts of rules governing the stock market, including information disclosure, insider trading, speculation, and use of credit.

HARROD-DOMAR MODEL: A model economic growth developed by R. F. Harrod and E. D. Domar that seeks to explain why an economy would not grow as fast has its potential growth rate. This model is based on the notion that actual income determines the amount saving, which is determines investment, which is what affects the rate of economic growth. If saving is not enough, the potential growth rate will not be achieved. The Harrod-Domar model, developed in the 1930s, has a strong Keynesian economic flavor, both indicating that the economy does not automatically achieve its potential.

MARGINAL PROPENSITY TO CONSUME

The proportion of each additional dollar of household income that is used for consumption expenditures. The marginal propensity to consume (abbreviated MPC) is another term for the slope of the consumption line and is calculated as the change in consumption divided by the change in income. The MPC plays a central role in Keynesian economics. It quantifies the consumption-income relation and the fundamental psychological law. It is also a foundation for the slope of the aggregate expenditures line and is critical to the multiplier process. A related consumption measure is the average propensity to consume.

This isn't me! What am I?

Rosemary, long associated with remembrance, was worn as wreaths by students in ancient Greece during exams.
"You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you're doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle. "

-- George Lucas
