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.

CONSUMPTION EXPENDITURES

Expenditures made by the household sector on final goods and services, or gross domestic product. Consumption expenditures play a central role in macroeconomic activity affecting both short-run business cycles and long-run economic growth. The motivation behind consumption expenditures is the general process of consumption, which is the use of goods and services to satisfy wants and needs, and are officially measured by personal consumption expenditures. These are one of four expenditures on gross domestic product. The other three are investment expenditures, government purchases, and net exports.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time browsing about a thrift store wanting to buy either a T-shirt commemorating last Friday (you know why) or a rotisserie oven that can also toast bread. Be on the lookout for florescent light bulbs that hum folk songs from the sixties.
