ALLOCATION EFFECT: The goal of imposing taxes to change the allocation of resources, that is, to discourage the production, consumption, or exchange or one type of good usually in favor of another. This is one of two reasons that governments impose taxes. The other reason is the revenue effect. Because people would rather not pay taxes, taxes create disincentives to produce, consume, and exchange. If society deems that less of a particular good, such as alcohol, pollution, or cigarettes are "bad," then a tax can reduce its production and consumption, and thus change the allocation of resources.

NORMAL GOOD: A good for which an increase in income causes an increase in demand, or a rightward shift in the demand curve. If demand increases as income increases, it is a normal good or a good with a positive income elasticity of demand. A normal good is one of two alternatives falling within the income determinant of demand. The other is an inferior good.

EIGHT-FIRM CONCENTRATION RATIO

The proportion of total output in an industry produced by the eight largest firms in an industry. This is one of two common concentration ratios. The other is the eight-firm concentration ratio. Another related measure is the Herfindahl index. The eight-firm concentration ratio is commonly used to indicate the degree to which an industry is oligopolistic and the extent of market control held by the eight largest firms in the industry.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time at the confiscated property police auction hoping to buy either a packet of address labels large enough for addresses of both the sender and the recipient or a key chain with a built-in flashlight and panic button. Be on the lookout for slightly overweight pizza delivery guys.
