BUSINESS CYCLE MEASUREMENT: Three of the most noted and often used measures of business cycle activity are real gross domestic product (especially the growth rate), unemployment rate, and inflation rate. Another group of measures fall under the broad heading of economic indicators and include leading economic indicators, coincident economic indicators, and lagging economic indicators. Real sophisticated economic types also follow measures such as changes in business inventories, Producer Price Index, M2 money supply, durable goods order, and others.

FREE GOOD: A resource is free if it can produce all of the goods people want or need it to produce... and then some. Being free, however, doesn't mean a resource is not limited. Maybe it's free because people just can"t figure out what to do with it. Or if it is used for production, people don"t want all that's produced. For most of the time across most of this planet air is a free good. In other words, there is plenty of air to go around, plenty of air to satisfy all of the existing wants and needs. Does this mean that air is NOT valuable? Quite the contrary. Air is extremely valuable. It provides one of the most important inputs into human life. It's a free resource because there's enough to go around.

POLICY LAGS

Time lags that occur between the onset of an economic problem and the full impact of the policy intended to correct the problem. Policy lags come in two broad categories--inside lag (getting the policy activated) and outside lag (the subsequent impact of the policy). The three specific inside lags are recognition lag, decision lag, and implementation lag. The one specific outside lag is termed impact lag. Policy lags can reduce the effectiveness of business-cycle stabilization policies and can even destabilize the economy. Policy lags, especially inside lags, are often different for monetary policy than for fiscal policy.
