More About the Index


G-7: The common abbreviation for the Group of Seven, which is seven of the most advanced and industrialized nations of the world--the United States, Britain, France, Italy, Canada, Germany, and Japan--that meet regularly to coordinate fiscal and monetary policies. Their actions are based on the proposition that our global economy and the individual countries are better off through cooperation than conflict.

PLURALITY RULE: A voting rule in which decisions are made based on a plurality of the votes cast. A plurality is defined as the most votes obtained when more than two candidates or options exist, but none receives a majority. If, for example, two of three candidates running for office receive 33 percent of the vote, then the third candidate with 34 percent receives the plurality. Presidential primary elections, which can have up to a dozen candidates, are commonly won with a plurality of the votes. This is one of several voting rules. Others include majority, super majority, and unanimity.

POTENTIAL REAL GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT

The total real output (real gross domestic product) that the economy can produce if resources are fully employed. In theory this means that the economy is operating ON the production possibilities frontier. Full employment is generally indicated by achieving what is termed the natural unemployment rate. If the economy is at full employment then actual real gross domestic product is equal to potential real gross domestic product and the actual unemployment rate is equal to the natural unemployment rate. The macroeconomy is thus living up to its potential.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time at the confiscated property police auction looking to buy either storage boxes for your summer clothes or 500 feet of coaxial cable. Be on the lookout for poorly written technical manuals.
