AGGREGATE PRODUCTION FUNCTION: A relation between the total production of real output for an economy and the amount of labor input. The aggregate production function is comparable to the standard production function used in the microeconomic analysis of firm behavior but is applied to the macroeconomic study of aggregate supply, resource markets, and employment. It is typically assumed to experience diminishing marginal returns, resulting in a decreasing marginal product of labor.

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.

UNLIMITED LIABILITY

A condition in which owners of a business are personally held responsible for any debts created by the business. Proprietorships and partnerships are the two types of business organizations in which owners have unlimited liability. Unlimited liability tends to restrict the size of a business and prevents large scale production. The alternative to unlimited liability is limited liability, a characteristic of corporations.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time visiting every yard sale in a 30-mile radius wanting to buy either a wall poster commemorating yesterday or pink cotton balls. Be on the lookout for bottles of barbeque sauce that act TOO innocent.
