BY-PRODUCT: One of two goods that are produced jointly using the same resource--that is, the production of one good automatically triggers the production of the other. Also termed joint products or complements-in-production, the phrase by-product is often used when one of the products is unwanted or of secondary importance. For example, sawdust is generally considered a by-product from producing lumber from trees.

AXIOM: A basic precondition or assumption underlying a theory. Axioms are basic, unverifiable world view assumptions, including personal beliefs, political views, and cultural values, that form the foundation of a theory. These axioms can not be verified with real world data, and as such are largely accepted on faith. Belief in a supreme, omnipotent, omniscience being is one such axiom. The notion that people are basically good (or bad) is another. The presumption that the universe abides by cause-and-effect relationships is a key axiom for science.
