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.

COLLUSION

A usually secret agreement among competing firms in an industry (primarily oligopoly) to dominate the market, control the market price, and otherwise act like a monopoly. The reason for the secrecy is that such behavior is illegal in the United States under antitrust laws. Collusion can take one of two forms. Explicit collusion occurs when two or more firms in the same industry formally agree to control the market. Implicit collusion occurs when two or more firms in the same industry control the market through informal, interdependent actions. Collusion is one of two ways oligopoly firms cooperate to avoid competition. The other is through mergers.
