FACTORY: The building and equipment (the physical capital) at a particular location used for the production of goods and services. A factory often takes the form of the conventional assembly-line system, but it need not. As the building and equipment used for production, a factory can also be restaurant, doctor's office, or university classroom. Moreover, while a factory is often associated with the notion of firm or business, they need not be one and the same. A firm can, often does, own more than one factory and a factory can be owned by more than one firm.

TFC: The abbreviation for total fixed cost, which is cost of production that does NOT change with changes in the quantity of output produced by a firm in the short run. Total fixed cost is one part of total cost. The other is total variable cost. At any and all levels of output, fixed cost is the same. It doesn't change. This includes cost that is not dependent on, or unrelated to, production. The best way to identify fixed cost is to produce zero output. Fixed cost is incurred whether or not any output is produced. A cost measure directly related to total fixed cost is average fixed cost.

EASY MONEY

A general condition of the economy in which money is relatively abundant and plentiful. In modern times, this condition arises when the monetary authority (Federal Reserve System) undertakes expansionary monetary policy. With easy money, interest rates are generally lower, but inflation tends to creep higher. The alternative to easy money is tight money.
