FACTOR SUPPLY DETERMINANTS: An ceteris paribus factors held constant when the factor supply curve is constructed that cause the curve to shift when they change. Because factor supply differs greatly depending on the particular factor analyzed (labor, capital, land, and entrepreneurship), factor supply determinants also come from different sources. Several key determinants come from the five standard market supply determinants: (1) resource prices, (2) technology, (3) other prices, (4) sellers' expectations, and (5) number of sellers. However, because labor is people (who receive satisfaction from working) three additional determinants come from market demand: (1) income, (2) preferences, and (3) other prices. Last, but not least, is the mobility of resources, including both geographic and occupational mobility.

A POSTERIORI: A conclusion reached through logical reasoning based on facts and observations about the real world. This notion is closely related to the scientific verification of hypotheses and the identification of principles. A similar sounding, but opposite term is a prior, which is a unverified presumption made before an analysis is undertaken. For example, in the study of economics of crime you might assume, a priori, that people are basically "good", and conclude, a posteriori, that people are more likely to commit crimes when the threat of capture and conviction is lower.

FALLACIES

Logical errors in an argument or evaluation of a policy. The six common fallacies that surface in economic analysis are: false cause, personal attack, division, composition, false authority, and mass appeal. These fallacies are most troublesome because, although false, they seem correct, especially when used by slick-talking, charismatic people (politicians) or when the fallacies support preconceived notions or fundamental beliefs.
