COASE THEOREM: A policy proposition, developed by Ronald Coase, that pollution and other externalities can be efficiently controlled through voluntary negotiations among the affected parties (polluters and those harmed by pollution). A key to the Coase theorem is that many pollution problems involve common-property goods that have no clear-cut ownership or property rights. With clear-cut property rights, "owners" would have the incentive to achieve an efficient level of pollution. This theorem states that it doesn't matter who receives the property rights, so long as someone does. Pollution can be reduced through voluntary negotiation by assigning private property rights to common-property resources. If common-property resources are privately owned, a market in property rights can be established. Owners then have the incentive to protect the quality of their resources.

CURRENT YIELD: The yield or return on a financial asset calculated as the annual rate of return on the purchase price. The current yield is not necessarily equal to the yield to maturity or the coupon rate. For example a $100,000 corporate bond with a 5% coupon rate that is purchased at a discount of $95,000 has a current yield of 5.26%.

MARGINAL UTILITY-PRICE RATIO

The ratio of the marginal utility obtained from consuming a good to the price of the good. This ratio is particularly important in determining consumer equilibrium, which is reached when the marginal utility-price ratios are the same for all goods. Equality between all marginal utility-price ratios is the rule of consumer equilibrium which is satisfied with utility maximization.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time strolling through a department store seeking to buy either a coffee cup commemorating the 1960 Presidential election or a how-to book on fixing your computer, with illustrations. Be on the lookout for door-to-door salesmen.
