TRANSPORTABLITY: One of four characteristics that enables an asset to better function as money. The other three are durability, divisibility, and non-counterfeitability. This characteristic means that the item used as money can be easily moved from one location to another, which is extremely useful because markets tend to be scattered all over the place. It really helps if buyers can transport their money to the points of purchase. An item could not be effectively used as a medium of exchange if it were not easily transportable.

TIEBOUT HYPOTHESIS: The notion that people relocate from one political jurisdiction to another in search of a more preferred package of government taxes and spending. This hypothesis suggests that people "shop" for compatible government activity in the same way they might shop for a car, a house, or a flavor of ice cream. The Tiebout hypothesis indicates that people have two methods of "voting" on government activity -- one is at the ballot box the other is with their feet by seeking a more preferred location.
