AMERICAN STOCK EXCHANGE: One of three national stock markets in the United States (see National Association of Securities Dealers and New York Stock Exchange) that trade ownership shares in corporations. In terms of daily stock transactions and the number of stocks listed, the American Stock Exchange is the smallest of these three. However, it's composite index of stock prices -- AMEX is considered important enough to be flashed briefly on the nightly news.

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.

FULL EMPLOYMENT, LONG-RUN AGGREGATE SUPPLY

The condition that exists when all resources are engaged in production. In practice, however, this condition is virtually impossible to achieve. An economy ALWAYS has some unemployed resources, particularly frictional and structural unemployment. The key characteristic of long-run aggregate supply is that full-employment production is maintained at ALL price levels. In the long run, when all prices and wages are flexible, all markets (financial, product, and especially resource) are in equilibrium, and the level of real production fully employs all available resources.
