ABSOLUTE ADVANTAGE: The general ability to produced more goods using fewer resources. This idea of absolute advantage is important for trading that occurs between both people and nations. A nation can get an absolute advantage from an advanced level of technology or higher quality resources. For a person, an absolute advantage can result from natural abilities or the acquisition of human capital (education, training, or experience).

BALANCE OF TRADE DEFICIT: An imbalance in a nation's balance of trade in which the payments for merchandise imports made by the country exceed payments for merchandise exports received by the country. This is also termed an unfavorable balance of trade. It's considered unfavorable because more goods are imported into the country than are exported out, meaning that domestic production is replaced with foriegn production, which then reduces domestic employment and income. A balance of trade deficit is often the source of a balance of payments deficit.

BUSINESS TRANSFER PAYMENTS

Payments by the business sector to the household sector without any corresponding production. Business transfer payments are essentially gifts, or subsidies, made to the household sector from the business sector. At the aggregated level, this is one of several key differences between national income (the resource cost of production) and gross (and net) domestic product (the market value of production). Business transfer payments (BTP) tend to be quite small, invariably less than 1 percent of gross domestic product.
