VERTICAL ADDITION: In graphical analysis, the technique of combining two curves by adding the value of the variable on the vertical or Y axis for a given value of the variable on the horizontal or X axis. This is commonly used for deriving the demand curve for a public good from a set of individual demand curves. The demand price that each individual buyer is willing to pay is added for a given quantity to identify the total benefits obtained.

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.

NET EXPORTS LINE

A graphical depiction of the relation between net exports attributed to the foreign sector and the economy's aggregate level of income or production. This relation plays a minor, but growing role in the study of Keynesian economics. A net exports line is characterized by vertical intercept, which indicates autonomous net exports, and slope, which is the negative of the marginal propensity to import and indicates induced net exports. The aggregate expenditures line used in Keynesian economics is derived by adding or stacking the net exports line onto the consumption line, after adding investment expenditures and government purchases.
