BUREAUCRACY: A system or rules and procedures designed to operate a complex organization. While most people look to government when the term bureaucracy arises (and make no mistake, government is not shy when it comes to complex bureaucracies), bureaucracies exist in all types of organizations -- private, public, government, business, charities, corporations, even households. The problem economists have with bureaucracies is that rigid, administrative rules often drive a wedge between action and responsibility. The clerk at the welfare counter is only following rules established by Congress. The clerk has no authority to change the rules, and Congress seldom if ever sees the consequences of their rules.

GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT, WELFARE: Gross domestic product (GDP) is the total market value of all goods and services produced within the political boundaries of an economy during a given period of time, usually one year. GDP is intended to measure the nation's production of wants-and-needs satisfying goods and services. While it provides an indication of how far the economy has come on the long road to battling the ever-present scarcity problem, it is NOT a direct measure of the nation's welfare or well-being. GDP is certainly a big component of the well-being of the country, but not the ONLY component.

EXPANSIONARY MONETARY POLICY

A form of monetary policy in which an increase in the money supply and a reduction in interest rates are used to correct the problems of a business-cycle contraction. In theory, expansionary monetary policy can include buying U.S. Treasury securities through open market operations, a decrease in the discount rate, and a decrease in reserve requirements. In theory, open market operations are the primary tool of expansionary monetary policy. Expansionary monetary policy is often supported by expansionary fiscal policy. An alternative is contractionary monetary policy.
