ACCUMULATION: The process of acquiring an item and adding that item to others previously acquired. In an economic context this most often refers to the accumulation of capital, as in the phrase "capital accumulation." However, it is also used in the context of consumer durable goods, financial assets, money, wealth, and a host of other "stock" variables. When applied to capital, the process of accumulation occurs through investment.

AUTONOMOUS CONSUMPTION: Household consumption expenditures that are unrelated to income or production (especially disposable, national income, or gross national product). These are consumption expenditures that would occur even if household disposable income was zero. Autonomous consumption is graphically depicted as the vertical intercept of the consumption or propensity-to-consume line. Autonomous saving is the equal to the negative value of autonomous consumption. Changes in autonomous consumption, along with changes in other autonomous expenditures, are what trigger the multiplier effect.

AGGREGATE DEMAND SHIFTS

Changes in the aggregate demand determinants cause the aggregate demand curve to shift. The mechanism is comparable to that for market demand determinants and market demand. There are two alternatives--an increase in aggregate demand and a decrease in aggregate demand. An increase in spending by any of the four sectors--household, business, government, and foreign--shifts the aggregate demand curve to right. A decrease in spending by these four sectors shifts the aggregate demand curve to left.
