EURODOLLARS: Bank accounts denominated in U.S. dollars but held in banks outside of the United States. This is notable because banks typically maintain deposits in their domestic currency. Deposits in a German bank, for example, would be denominated in German marks. Originally Eurodollars were dollar deposits in European banks (hence the term "Eurodollars"). However, the notion of deposits held by a bank in currency other than that of the domestic economy has become a common practice around the world. Eurodollars are near monies added to M1 to obtain broader monetary aggregates, M2 and M3.

BACKWARD-BENDING LABOR SUPPLY CURVE: A labor supply curve that is positively-sloped for relatively small quantities of labor and negatively-sloped for relatively large quantities of labor. In other words, workers supply larger quantities of labor in response to a higher wage when the wage is relatively low. However, when the wage reaches a relatively high level, further increases in the wage entice workers to reduce the quantity supplied. The supply curve thus bends back on itself. The reason for the negatively-sloped, backward-bending segment rests with the tradeoff between labor and leisure. Workers decide to "spend" a portion of their higher wage "buying" more leisure time, and thus working less. The end result is that the higher wage decreases the quantity of labor supplied.

AGGREGATE SUPPLY

The total (or aggregate) real production of final goods and services available in the domestic economy at a range of price levels, during a given time period. Aggregate supply, usually abbreviated AS, is two different relations between price level and real production--long run and short run. With long-run aggregate supply, prices and wages are flexible and all markets are in equilibrium. With short-run aggregate supply some prices and wage are NOT flexible and some markets are NOT in equilibrium. This is one half of the AS-AD (aggregate market) analysis. The other half is aggregate demand.
