VALUE IN USE: The satisfaction of wants and needs provided by the direct consumption of goods and services. Acquiring value from the use of goods and services is really the ultimate goal of economic activity. It is the final step in the production, allocation, and consumption activities that undertaken to address the fundamental problem of scarcity. Value in use should be contrasted with the similar phrase, value in exchange.

EXCESS SUPPLY: A disequilibrium condition in a competitive market in which the quantity supplied is greater than the quantity demanded, hence there's "extra" supply. Pointy-headed economists generally use the more technical term surplus rather than excess supply. The reason, of course, is that surplus has two syllables and excess supply has four. The time saved in pronouncing two syllables rather than four is a definite efficiency plus for the entire economy.

MARGINAL PROPENSITY TO IMPORT

The change in imports purchased from the foreign induced by a change in income or production (national income or gross domestic product). The marginal propensity to import (abbreviated MPM) is another term for the slope of the imports line and is calculated as the change in imports divided by the change in income or production. The MPM plays a role in Keynesian economics. It augments the slope of the aggregate expenditures line and is part to the multiplier process. A related marginal measure is the marginal propensity to consume.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time flipping through mail order catalogs seeking to buy either semi-gloss photo paper that works with your neighbor's printer or a birthday gift for your father that doesn't look like every other birthday gift for your father. Be on the lookout for gnomes hiding in cypress trees.
