SELF-CORRECTION, MARKET: The automatic process through which markets adjust from disequilibrium to equilibrium. Pointy-headed economists really like markets, even more than they like Englebert Humperdink. The reason is that markets have a built-in self correction mechanism. If a market is in equilibrium, it remains there until the cows come home. But if it's NOT in equilibrium, if it is in disequilibrium, it moves back. This means that no one (read this as government) needs to lord over markets, night and day, to ensure that they work. To reach an exchange that's mutually agreeable to both buyers and sellers, the buyers and sellers just need to be left alone (that is. laissez faire).

ECONOMIC SCIENCE: The application of the scientific method to economic phenomena. In other words, economists develop theories, test hypotheses, and seek to explain things like prices, unemployment rates, monopolize markets, business cycles, market shortages, and virtually everything else that might be considered economic "stuff." However, economic science is also directed toward phenomenon that might NOT be considered economics, including voting, crime, and leisure. The key element, however, is that all of these, and many more, phenomena related to the fundamental problem of scarcity in one way or the other.

DETERMINANTS

Ceteris paribus factors that are held constant when a curve is constructed. Changes in these factors then cause the curve to shift to a new location. The most common determinants are demand determinants for the demand curve and supply determinants for the supply curve. Other curves used in the analysis of economics also have notable determinants, including the production possibilities curve, the aggregate demand curve, the aggregate supply curve, and the short-run average cost curve.
