LAW: Generally accepted, verified, fundamental principle of nature. Laws have been tested and verified through the scientific method. As a house is constructed from concrete, lumber, and nails, a theory is constructed from laws. To be a fundamental law of nature, a principle must capture a cause-and-effect relationship about the workings of the world.

BALANCED-BUDGET MULTIPLIER

A measure of the change in aggregate production caused by equal changes in government purchases and taxes. The balanced-budget multiplier is equal to one, meaning that the multiplier effect of a change in taxes offsets all but the initial production triggered by the change in government purchases. This multiplier is the combination of the expenditures multiplier, which measures the change in aggregate production caused by changes in an autonomous aggregate expenditure, and the tax multiplier which measures the change in aggregate production caused by changes in taxes.
