SELF CORRECTION: The process through which a model, especially the market and the aggregate market, automatically adjust to equilibrium through changes in one of the variables. For the standard market, self-correction involves changes in the market price to eliminate shortages and surpluses. For the aggregate market, self-correction involves changes in wages, which shift the short-run aggregate supply curve and move the aggregate market from short-run equilibrium to long-run equilibrium.

MATURITY: That date at which the principal on a bond or similar financial asset needs to be repaid. Maturity dates can be anywhere from a few hours to 30 or more years. For example, government securities are classified by their maturity dates, with Treasury bills maturing in one year or less, Treasury notes in 1 to 10 years, and Treasury bonds in 10 years or more. Under normal (nonrecessionary) conditions, shorter maturity periods carry lower interest rates, while longer maturities need higher interest rates to compensate for the uncertainty of tying funds up for longer periods.

EFFICIENT

The state of resource allocation that exists when the highest level of consumer satisfaction is achieved from available resources. This state can be accomplished through markets when the price buyers are willing and able to pay for a good--based on the satisfaction obtained--is equal to the price sellers need to charge for a good--based on the opportunity cost of production.

"Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment."
