WHAT?: One of three basic questions of allocation (the other two are How? and For Whom?). Answering the 'What?' question of allocation determines the types and quantities of goods and services produced with society's limited resources. Should society produce hammocks or hot fudge sundaes? Computers or Cadillacs? Birdfeed or battleships? The production possibilities analysis sets the stage for answering the 'What?' question.

PRODUCER PRICE INDEX: An index of the prices domestic producers receive from selling their output. THE Producer Price Index, abbreviated PPI, is actually one of several producer price indexes compiled and published monthly by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). THE Producer Price Index reported regularly in the media is actually the Producer Price Index for All Commodities. Other members in the family of producer price indexes include an array of broad, composite indexes (including finished consumer goods, capital goods, and crude materials); indexes that track the prices received by producers in virtually every major production industry in the country (including lumber, iron and steel, household furniture, and passenger cars); and price indexes for thousands of specific products. In total, the producer price index family includes well over 10,000 separate indexes.

LONG-RUN PRODUCTION ANALYSIS

An analysis of the production decision made by a firm in the long run. The central characteristic of long-run production analysis is that all inputs under the control of the firm are variable. The central principle guiding production in the long run is returns to scale, which indicates how production responds to proportional changes in all inputs. A contrasting analysis is short-run production analysis.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time at an auction trying to buy either a video game player or an AC adapter that won't fry your computer. Be on the lookout for vindictive digital clocks with revenge on their minds.

This isn't me! What am I?

A scripophilist is one who collects rare stock and bond certificates, usually from extinct companies.
"Many people think that if they were only in some other place, or had some other job, they would be happy. Well, that is doubtful. So get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can and don't put off being happy until some future date. "
