DISMAL SCIENCE: A term for the study of economics developed during the late 18th and early 19th century when economists concluded that continued population growth would push wages and living standards to a minimal subsistence level and keep them there. It persists to the present time because economics continue to point out that actions result in opportunity cost, that nothing is free, and that eventually society has to pay the price for what it does.

FACTORY: The building and equipment (the physical capital) at a particular location used for the production of goods and services. A factory often takes the form of the conventional assembly-line system, but it need not. As the building and equipment used for production, a factory can also be restaurant, doctor's office, or university classroom. Moreover, while a factory is often associated with the notion of firm or business, they need not be one and the same. A firm can, often does, own more than one factory and a factory can be owned by more than one firm.
