AD VALOREM TARIFF: A tax on imports that is specified as a percentage of the value of the good or service being taxed. This is one form of trade barrier that's intended to restrict imports into a country. Unlike nontariff barriers and quotas, which increase prices and thus revenue received by domestic producers, an 'ad valorem tariff' generates revenue for the government. For example: a 15 percent ad valorem tariff on a TV set worth $100 would pay a tariff of $15. One advantage of an ad valorem tariff is that it keeps up with changes in prices (mostly inflation).

INVESTMENT LINE: A graphical depiction of the relation between business investment expenditures and national income that forms one of the key building blocks for Keynesian economics. The slope of this line is positive, greater than zero, less than one, and goes by the name marginal propensity to invest. The vertical intercept of the investment line is autonomous investment. The aggregate expenditures line used in the Keynesian cross is obtained by adding this investment line, as well as, government purchases and net exports, to the consumption line. The investment line is also combined with the saving line in saving-investment model used in Keynesian economics.
