KINKED-DEMAND CURVE: A demand curve with two distinct segments with different elasticities that join to form a kink. The primary use of the kinked-demand curve is to explain price rigidity in oligopoly. The two segments are: (1) a relatively more elastic segment for price increases and (2) a relatively less elastic segment for price decreases. The relative elasticities of these two segments is directly based on the interdependent decision-making of oligopolistic firms.

AUTONOMOUS INVESTMENT: Business investment expenditures that are unrelated to income or production (especially national income or gross national product). These are investment expenditures that would occur even if national income was zero. Autonomous investment is graphically depicted as the vertical intercept of the investment line relating investment to national income. Changes in autonomous investment, along with changes in other autonomous expenditures, are what trigger the multiplier effect.
