ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY: Obtaining the most consumer satisfaction from available resources. This is what most economists mean when the term efficiency arises. Economic efficiency means our economy is doing the best job possible of satisfying unlimited wants and needs with limited resources--that is, of addressing the problem of scarcity.

INDEX: A measure of the relative average of a group of items compared to a given base value. Index measures are commonly used in economics to combine and compare diverse measures. One common type of index measure is for prices, such as the Consumer Price Index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average of corporate stock prices. Another noted type of index measure is to track macroeconomic activity, especially the index leading economic indicators. Indexes are usually weighted averages rather than simple arithmetic means that are measured relative to a base value or period. The Consumer Price Index, for example, measures the prices of consumer good, weighted by the quantities purchased. The value of a given period is then stated relative to a base year value, which generates a pure, "unitless" number in the range of 100 (give or take).

INVESTMENT EXPENDITURES

Expenditures made by the business sector on final goods and services, or gross domestic product, especially the purchase of productive capital goods. Investment expenditures play a central role in macroeconomic activity affecting both short-run business cycles and long-run economic growth. These expenditures reflect the general act of investment involving foregoing current satisfaction to produce capital goods and are officially measured by gross private domestic investment. These are one of four expenditures on gross domestic product. The other three are consumption expenditures, government purchases, and net exports.
