OTHER THINGS EQUAL: A common assumption used in economic analysis that often goes by the technical Latin term, ceteris paribus. This assumption is used when identifying the relation between two specific variables, such as price and quantity for the law of demand. In so doing, the causal connection between the two variables can be identified. However, economic analysis becomes more interesting and useful when this assumption is relaxed, which makes it possible to examine how these "other things" affect the relation under study.

DISCRIMINATION: Treating people differently based on some sort of group characteristic--like race, ethnic origin, or gender--rather then individual abilities. Discrimination is usually most prominent in employment and housing, but can filter into all aspects of life in many subtle ways. Discrimination tends to be inefficient because it limits the number of buyers or sellers that have access to a given market. Those who discriminate in this manner are, in essence, willing to pay extra for the privilege of associating only with "their own kind."

SHORT-RUN PRODUCTION ANALYSIS

An analysis of the production decision made by a firm in the short run, with the ultimate goal of explaining the law of supply and the upward-sloping supply curve. The central feature of this short-run production analysis is the law of diminishing marginal returns, which results in the short run when larger amounts of a variable input, like labor, are added to a fixed input, like capital. A contrasting analysis is long-run production analysis.
