BACKSTOP RESOURCE: A sustainable, renewable natural resource that is used in place of, and as a substitute for, finite, exhaustible natural resources that have been exhausted. A sustainable resource is one in which the amount used today cannot reduce the amount available tomorrow.The best example is solar energy. No matter how much solar energy we use today, the same amount reaches the planet every day in the future. A backstop resource is then a sustainable resource, like solar energy, that society uses after finite resources, like fossil fuels, have been exhausted. In fact, solar energy is often considered THE backstop energy resource. It represents THE "safety net" that's available when fossil fuels are depleted.

HOUSEHOLD PRODUCTION: The creation of satisfaction using both goods purchased in markets and the uncompensated efforts of consumers. In other words, while you might buy stuff from the store, you often need to do something to it before it's ready to use. Probably the most common example is cooking a meal. You buy some pasta noodles, a jar of alfredo sauce, and a frozen package of bite-sized shrimp at the store, then use a little bit of your time and effort to prepare a tasty Italian meal.

TAX EFFECTS

The primary reason that governments collect taxes from members of society is to finance government operations and provide public goods. However, taxes also create disincentives to engage in the taxed activity, which causes a change in the allocation of resources. This two consequences of taxes are summarized in two essential tax effects -- the revenue effect and the allocation effect. While all taxes have both, the key to effective government is minimize the allocation effect if the goal is to generate revenue and to minimize the revenue effect if the goal is to change the allocation of resources.
