ABSOLUTE POVERTY: The amount of income a person or family needs to purchase an absolute amount of the basic necessities of life. These basic necessities are identified in terms of calories of food, BTUs of energy, square feet of living space, etc. The problem with the absolute poverty level is that there really are no absolutes when in comes to consuming goods. You can consume a given poverty level of calories eating relatively expensive steak, relatively inexpensive pasta, or garbage from a restaurant dumpster. The income needed to acquire each of these calorie "minimums" vary greatly. That's why some prefer relative poverty.

EXPORTS

Goods and services produced by the domestic economy and purchased by the foreign sector. Exports are goods sold to other countries. Exports are the counter to imports--goods produced by the foreign sector and purchased by domestic economy. Exports, together with imports, are the essence of foreign trade--goods and services that are traded among the citizens of different nations. Exports and imports are frequently combined into a single term, net exports (exports minus imports).
