CBO: The abbreviation of Congressional Budget Office, which is a Congressional agency that provides Congress with information needed for various economic and budget decisions. Established in 1974, the CBO is responsible for providing Congress with objective, timely, nonpartisan analyses used for economic and budget decisions. A key task is to generate information and estimates required for the Congressional budget process. The Presidential counterpart of the CBO is the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). And unlike the OMB, every attempt is made to ensure that the CBO is nonpartisan and objective. It does not recommend policies, but only presents alternatives.

CENTRAL PLANNING: A system of extensive central government control of an economy, including organizing production and making allocation decisions. This was the popular method of allocating resources and answering the three basic questions of allocation under the communism/socialism economic systems of the Soviet Union, China, and others during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Applying the communist/socialist philosophy that private property and market allocation were "bad," central planning relied on extremely detailed plans made by government. These plans would set specific production quotas for individual products, parts, components, and inputs fabricated by all of the factories and farms across the economy. This was a daunting, complex task that required detailed production information for hundreds of thousands of different commodities.
