SHORT-RUN SUPPLY CURVE, MONOPOLY: Market control by a monopoly firm means that it does not have a supply relation between the quantity of output produced and the price. By way of comparison a perfectly competitive firm does have a short-run supply curve. Market control by a monopoly means that it price is NOT equal to marginal revenue, and thus it does NOT equate marginal cost and price. As such, a monopoly firm does not move along it's marginal cost curve. A monopoly does not necessarily supply larger quantities at higher prices or smaller quantities at lower prices.

OUTSIDE LAG: In the context of economic policies, the time between corrective government action responding to a shock to the economy and the resulting affect on the economy. This is one of two primary lags in the use of economic policies. The other is inside lag, the time between a shock to the economy and corrective government action responding to the shock. The length of the outside lag, also termed impact lag, is primarily based on the speed of the multiplier process and is essentially the same for both fiscal and monetary policy. The length of the inside and outside lags is one argument against the use of discretionary policies to stability business cycles.
