RISK LOVING: A person who values a certain income less than an equal amount of income that involves risk or uncertainty. Suppose that you have two options--(A) a guaranteed $1,000 or (b) a 50-50 chance of getting either $500 or $1,500. If you chose option B, then you're risk loving. While both options give you the same "expected" values, you get more satisfaction from the risky option than the guaranteed one. In fact, risk loving people are willing to pay for the opportunity to experience a risky situation.

OTHER THINGS EQUAL: A common assumption used in economic analysis that often goes by the technical Latin term, ceteris paribus. This assumption is used when identifying the relation between two specific variables, such as price and quantity for the law of demand. In so doing, the causal connection between the two variables can be identified. However, economic analysis becomes more interesting and useful when this assumption is relaxed, which makes it possible to examine how these "other things" affect the relation under study.

WAGES, AGGREGATE SUPPLY DETERMINANT

One of several specific aggregate supply determinants assumed constant when the short-run aggregate supply curve is constructed, and that shifts the short-run aggregate supply curve when it changes. An increase in the wages causes a decrease (leftward shift) of the short-run aggregate supply curve. A decrease in the wages causes an increase (rightward shift) of the short-run aggregate supply curve. Other notable aggregate supply determinants include the technology, energy prices, and the capital stock. Wages are an example of a resource price aggregate supply determinant.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time strolling around a discount warehouse buying club hoping to buy either a replacement remote control for your stereo system or a computer that can play video games and burn DVDs. Be on the lookout for bottles of barbeque sauce that act TOO innocent.
