YIELD CURVE: A curve plotting the yields (or returns) on securities with different maturity lengths. The standard yield is for U.S. Treasury securities with lengths ranging from 90 days to 30 years. The five maturity lengths are usually 90 day, 180 day, 2 year, 5 year, 10 year, and 30 year. The shape and slope fo the yield curve indicates the state of the economy and what's likely to come. A normal yield curve has a slight positive slope, with slightly higher yields for longer maturity securities. A steep yield curve suggests the end of a contraction and beginning of an expansion. An inverted, or negatively sloped yield curve is the sign of an upcoming contraction.

FACTOR PRICE: The price paid for and received by the services of factor of productions (labor, capital, land, and entrepreneurship) when exchange through factor markets. Like prices in other markets, factor price adjusts to balance the forces of demand and supply. For factor demand and the factor demand curve, the factor price is negatively related to the quantity of factor services demanded. For factor supply and the factor supply curve, factor price is positively related to the quantity of factor services supplied. The key factor prices are wage rates, interest rates, rents, and profits. The rigidity or inflexibility of factor prices is an important aspect of the macroeconomic study of the short-run aggregate market.

RECESSIONARY GAP

The difference between the equilibrium real production achieved in the short-run aggregate market and full-employment real production that occurs when short-run equilibrium real production is less than full-employment real production. A recessionary gap, also termed a contractionary gap, is associated with a business-cycle contraction. This is one of two alternative output gaps that can occur when short-run equilibrium generates production that differs from full employment. The other is an inflationary gap.
