PHYSICAL SCIENCE: The scientific study of nonhuman, nonsociety phenomenon, such as atoms, planets, wildlife, and continental drift. Common disciplines that study these physical phenomenon go by the names physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and astronomy, among others. The primary reason for this entry is to provide a contrast with social sciences, especially economics, that study human behavior and society.

EMPLOYED PERSONS: People who are actively engaged in the production of goods and services. This is one of three official categories used to classify individuals by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) based on information obtained from the Current Population Survey. The other two categories are unemployed persons and not in the labor force. The sum of employed persons and unemployed persons constitute the civilian labor force. While most employed persons are people who receive payment for performing productive work, usually for profit-seeking business firms, the BLS has other specific criteria designed to capture the range of employment possibilities.

ASSUMPTIONS, CLASSICAL ECONOMICS

Classical economics, especially as directed toward macroeconomics, relies on three key assumptions--flexible prices, Say's law, and saving-investment equality. Flexible prices ensure that markets adjust to equilibrium and eliminate shortages and surpluses. Say's law states that supply creates its own demand and means that enough income is generated by production to purchase the resulting production. The saving-investment equality ensures that any income leaked from consumption into saving is replaced by an equal amount of investment. Although of questionable realism, these three assumptions imply that the economy would operate at full employment.
