GENERAL STRIKE: A strike by a majority of the workers in key industries throughout a country in a particular region of the country. This type of strike is different in both magnitude and intent than that of a strike against a specific firm or industry. In particular, a general strike involves virtually every union regardless of industry or occupation. In addition, the intent of a general strike is to bring the economy to a standstill as a means of forcing major structural changes in the economy or society. Such a strike has been effectively used from time to time, but because it does shut down the economy and imposes hardships on almost everyone.

NORMAL GOOD: A good for which an increase in income causes an increase in demand, or a rightward shift in the demand curve.

MARGINAL UTILITY

The additional utility obtained from the consumption or use of an additional unit of a good. It is specified as the change in total utility divided by the change in quantity. Marginal utility indicates what each additional unit of a good is worth to a consumer and provides a theoretical basis for understanding market demand and the law of demand. Marginal utility generally declines with increased consumption of a good, a reflection of the law of diminishing marginal utility.
