MANAGED FLOAT: An exchange rate that (like a floating exchange rate) is free to move up and down, but is subject to government control (like a fixed exchange rate) if it moves beyond certain boundaries. With managed float, the government steps into the foreign exchange market and buys or and sells whatever currency is necessary keep the exchange rate within desired limits. The logic behind managed float is that an unrestricted movement of exchange rates is usually pretty healthy, but serious problems in the balance of payment and balance of trade result if it floats too far in either direction.

CLASSICAL ECONOMICS: A body of economic thought originating with the work of Adam Smith based on the idea that the operation of unrestricted markets generates aggregate or national production that fully utilizes the economy's resources and maintains full employment. The three primary assumptions of classical economics are flexible prices, Say's law, and the saving-investment equality.

SELF CORRECTION, RECESSIONARY GAP

The automatic process in which the aggregate market eliminates a recessionary gap created by a short-run equilibrium that is less than full employment through decreases in wages (and other resource prices). The self-correction mechanism is triggered by short-run resource market imbalances that are closed by long-run price flexibility. The self-correction process of the aggregate market also acts to close an inflationary gap with higher wages (and other resource prices).
