ECONOMIC GROWTH, SOURCES: Our economy achieves economic growth with increases in the quantity or quality of resources. The quantity part is relatively simple. If we get more resources, then we have the ability to produce more output. We can also improve resource quality, making existing resources more productive, primarily through education and technology.

CONSERVATIVE: A political view that favors -- (1) limited government, (2) extensive reliance on markets, (3) strong national defense, (4) protection and promotion of existing cultural ideals and beliefs, and (5) economic rewards predominately based on productive efforts. Conservatives tend to come from the ranks of the second estate (or second-estate wannabes), with extensive ownership of and control over resources. As such, they support policies and first estate leaders that protect their interests. Conservatives tend to be strong advocates of free enterprise and find philosophical agreement with neoclassical economics, new classical economics, rational expectations, and monetarism theories that call for limited government intervention in the economy.

ORDINAL UTILITY

The notion that utility--the satisfaction of wants and needs achieved through the consumption of goods and services--is measured by a ranking of preferences (first, second, third, etc.) that are only comparable on a relative basis. Ordinal utility does not presume that satisfaction is a measurable characteristic of a person, like height or weight, that can be compared against an established benchmark. The contrasting notion is cardinal utility, which is based on a numerical standard.
