REPURCHASE AGREEMENT: A common type of bank account in which funds are transferred from one account to another, then automatically transferred back after a short period, usually overnight. In effect, a bank customer buys a legal claim from a bank with the understanding that the bank will automatically "repurchase" this legal claim back after a specified time period. Repurchase agreements were original developed as a round about means of paying interest on business checking, which such interest paying was legally prohibited. Repurchase agreements are near monies added to M1 to obtain broader monetary aggregates, M2 and M3.

FREE-RIDER PROBLEM

A problem underlying the provision of public goods that occurs when a person consumes or benefits from a good without making payment. The free-rider problem is the primary reason that public goods are produced by governments. Because public goods are characterized by the inability to exclude nonpayers, once a public good is produced anyone, everyone, can consume without making payment, that is, get a "free ride." Voluntary payments like those occurring in markets will not provide enough revenue to pay production costs. The only way to finance public goods is to force free-riders, and everyone else, to pay through government taxes. The free-rider problem also applies to common-property goods.
