CAPITAL ACCOUNT SURPLUS: An imbalance in a nation's balance of payments capital account in which payments received by the country for selling domestic assets exceed payments made by the country for purchasing foreign assets. In other words, investment by the domestic economy in foreign assets is greater than foreign investment in domestic assets. This is generally a desireable situation for a domestic economy. However, in the wacky world of international economics, a capital account surplus is often balanced by a current account deficit, which is not generally considered a desireable situation. If, however, the current account does not balance out the capital account, then a capital account surplus contributes to a balance of payments surplus.

CONSUMPTION FUNCTION: The positive relation between household consumption expenditures and household disposable income that forms one of the key building blocks for Keynesian economics. The consumption function is commonly presented as the consumption line or propensity-to-consume line. The slope of this line is the marginal propensity to consume, which is the proportion of any additional income used for consumption. The consumption function and the marginal propensity to consume play key roles in the multiplier and accelerator concepts. Because saving is the difference between disposable income and consumption, the saving function is a complementary relation to the consumption function.
