CAPITAL DEPRECIATION: The wearing out, breaking down, or technological obsolescence of physical capital that results from use in the production of goods and services. To paraphrase an old saying, "You can't make a car without breaking a few socket wrenches." In other words, when capital is used over and over again to produce goods and services, it wears down from such use.

NONTARIFF BARRIER: Any sort of trade barrier--other than a tariff or import quota--that restricts imports. Some of the more popular nontariff barriers are those that specify the content of a good or how it was produced. There are many valid and important safety, health, and environmental reasons for establishing these sorts of nontariff barriers.

Aggregate expenditures (AE) are a cornerstone in the study of macroeconomics, playing critical roles in Keynesian economics, aggregate market analysis, and to a lesser degree, monetarism. In particular, aggregate expenditures are combined with the price level as aggregate demand.
