WEALTH DISTRIBUTION: The manner in which wealth is divided among the members of the economy. A perfectly equal wealth distribution would mean everyone in the country has exactly the same wealth. In reality, wealth is unequally distributed. A few people have a great deal of wealth and most others have less. Any well-functioning economy, that's doing a pretty good job of satisfying consumer wants and needs, will have some degree of inequality in the distribution of wealth. This occurs because some people have done a good job of producing what people want, and thus grow wealthy. However, wealth tends to perpetuate itself, over and above what may be justified by valuable production. Along with wealth comes market control, political power, and the ability to accumulate more wealth at the expense of others.

CROSS ELASTICITY OF DEMAND: The relative response of a change in demand to a relative change in the price of another good. More specifically the cross elasticity of demand can be defined as the percentage change in demand for one good due to a percentage change in the price of another good. The cross elasticity of demand quantitatively identifies the theoretical relationship between other prices and demand discussed by the other prices. This elasticity should be compared with price elasticity of demand and income elasticity of demand. You might want to check out elasticity for a little background.
