CLASSICAL ECONOMICS: A body of economic thought originating with the work of Adam Smith based on the idea that the operation of unrestricted markets generates aggregate or national production that fully utilizes the economy's resources and maintains full employment. The three primary assumptions of classical economics are flexible prices, Say's law, and the saving-investment equality.

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.

LAISSEZ FAIRE

The notion that government should not intervene into production, consumption, and exchange activities and that the private sector (households and businesses) should be free to make allocation decisions. Laissez faire is a French term that roughly translates into "allow to act." It has been the rallying cry for many people (primarily business leaders) who oppose government intervention, regulation, or even taxation since it was popularized in the late 1700s by Adam Smith in The Wealth of Nations.
