LABOR MARKET: A market that exchanges the services of labor resources. For the macroeconomy, this is a critical aspect of the aggregate resource markets, especially the short-run condition of rigid prices. Labor market wages tend to be rigid in short run. Such wage rigidity, was well as other short run problems, prevent labor markets from achieve equilibrium. The result is either unemployment or overemployment, both of which prevent long-run equilibrium in the aggregate market.

TAFT-HARTLEY ACT: A Congressional act passed in 1947 that limited the power acquired by U.S. labor unions during the 1930 and into the 1940s. Officially known as the Labor-Management Relations Act, this outlawed unfair labor practices by labor unions to counterbalance earlier legislation that had outlawed unfair labor practices by firms. The Taft-Hartley Act also set up provisions to decertify unions, if members chose to do so, and allowed states to pass right-to-work laws, which would outlaw union shops.

DUOPOLY

An oligopoly market structure containing exactly two firms. As an oligopoly, duopoly exhibits the oligopolistic characteristics and undertakes oligopolistic behavior, such as barriers to entry, interdependent actions, and nonprice competition. While duopoly, in its purest form of EXACTLY two firms in the industry, is seldom found in the real world, it does provide an excellent, easy to use illustration of oligopoly. In fact, most instructional analysis of oligopoly generally assumes a two-firm, duopoly market.
