MARKET SHARE: The fraction of an industry's total sales accounted for by a single business. In general, market share is a "first-guess" indicator of a firm's market control. If, for example, a company has a market share of 100 percent (that is, a monopoly), then you can rest assured it has a substantial amount of market control. A company with a 25 percent market share has less, but still notable, market control. In fact, when you get right down to the bottom line, the phrase "market share" is only worth mentioning for oligopolistic firms with a significant degree of market control. There really is no market control for a monopolistically competitive firm with a 0.00000001 percent market share.

MARGIN REQUIREMENT: The fraction of the purchase price of financial investments, like stocks and bonds, that the buyer must pay for in cash. The remaining part of the purchase price can thus be financed with credit.

AVERAGE PROPENSITY TO CONSUME

The proportion of household income that is used for consumption expenditures. The average propensity to consume (abbreviated APC) is really nothing more than average consumption. Together with the average propensity to save, it indicates how a given level of income is divided between consumption and saving. A related consumption measure is the marginal propensity to consume.
