TOTAL FIXED COST: Cost of production that does NOT change with changes in the quantity of output produced by a firm in the short run. Total fixed cost is one part of total cost. The other is total variable cost. At any and all levels of output, fixed cost is the same. It doesn't change. This includes cost that is not dependent on, or unrelated to, production. The best way to identify fixed cost is to produce zero output. Fixed cost is incurred whether or not any output is produced. A cost measure directly related to total fixed cost is average fixed cost.

FREE RESOURCE: 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.

ABSOLUTE ADVANTAGE

The general ability to produce more goods or services using fewer resources. A person or country has an absolute advantage in production largely due to superior technology or greater technical efficiency. A related, but contrasting concept is comparative advantage. Both terms are perhaps most important to the study of international trade, but also provide insight into other exchanges.

"Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment."
