SELF-CONCEPT: A person's view or image of herself or himself. This is closely related to one's personality. A poor self-concept or negative sense of oneself can have a damaging affect on a person's ability to interact with others. Those who have a positive self-concept tend to believe in who they are and have confidence in their abilities to deal with various situations. Marketing researchers know that consumers tend to make purchases that reflect and enhance self-concept.

INCREASING-COST INDUSTRY: A perfectly competitive industry with a positively-sloped long-run industry supply curve that results because expansion of the industry causes higher production cost and resource prices. For an increasing-cost industry the entry of new firms, prompted by an increase in demand, causes the long-run average supply curve of each firm to shift upward, which increases the minimum efficient scale of production.

FRICTIONAL UNEMPLOYMENT

Unemployment attributable to the time required to match production activities with qualified resources. Frictional unemployment essentially occurs because resources, especially labor, are in the process of moving from one production activity to another. Employers are seeking workers and workers are seeking employment, the two sides just have not matched up. This mismatch is largely the result of limited information, which is often compounded by geographic separation between producers and resources. Frictional unemployment is one of four unemployment sources. The other three are cyclical unemployment, seasonal unemployment, and structural unemployment. Frictional and structural unemployment are the two components of natural unemployment.
