FLEXIBLE PRICES: The proposition that prices adjust in the long run in response to market shortages or surpluses. This condition is most important for long-run macroeconomic activity and long-run aggregate market analysis. In particular, flexible prices are the key reason for the vertical slope of the long-run aggregate supply curve. This proposition is also central to original classical theory of macroeconomics and to modern variations, including rational expectations, new classical theory, and supply-side economics.

FREE MARKET: A competitive market that is unrestrained by government control or regulations, especially price floors, price ceilings, or taxes. In such a market the forces of demand and supply eliminate any shortages and surpluses move the market to the equilibrium price and quantity. If the free market is competitive (with large numbers of buyers and sellers) and is not infected with other market failures, such as externalities, then equilibrium price results with equality between the demand price and the supply price. This means that equilibrium is also efficient.

DETERMINANT

This has one of two somewhat related meanings. First, it refers to a ceteris paribus factor that is held constant when a curve or graphical relation between two other variables is constructed. Second, it refers to a known directional change in a variable resulting from the disruption of an equilibrium that is identified using comparative statics.
