FIRM: An organization that combines resources for the production and supply of goods and services. The firm is used by entrepreneurs to bring together otherwise unproductive resources. The key role played by a firm is the production of output using the economy's scarce resources. Firm's are the means through which society transforms less satisfying resources into more satisfying goods and services. If firms didn't do this deed, then something else would. And we would probably call those something elses firms.

FIXED INPUT: An input in the production of goods and services that does not change in the short run. A fixed input should be compared with a variable input, an input that DOES change in the short run. Fixed and variable inputs are most important for the analysis of short-run production by a firm. The best example of a fixed input is the factory, building, equipment, or other capital used in production. The comparable example of a variable input would then be the labor or workers who work in the factory or operate the equipment. In the short run (such as a day or so) a firm can vary the quantity of labor, but the quantity of capital is fixed.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time at a dollar discount store looking to buy either any book written by Isaac Asimov or a how-to book on building remote controlled airplanes. Be on the lookout for vindictive digital clocks with revenge on their minds.
