AGGREGATE PRODUCTION FUNCTION: A relation between the total production of real output for an economy and the amount of labor input. The aggregate production function is comparable to the standard production function used in the microeconomic analysis of firm behavior but is applied to the macroeconomic study of aggregate supply, resource markets, and employment. It is typically assumed to experience diminishing marginal returns, resulting in a decreasing marginal product of labor.

POLITICAL BUSINESS CYCLE: The notion that a business cycle is caused by elected government leaders who manipulate the economy to achieve personal political goals -- that is, to remain in office. The leaders stimulate the economy leading up to an election, creating a business-cycle expansion that ensures (they hope) their re-election, then induce a business-cycle contraction after the election to correct problems created by pre-election stimulation.

TWO-SECTOR AGGREGATE EXPENDITURES LINE

A graphical depiction of the relation between aggregate expenditures by the two private sectors (household and business) and the level of aggregate income or production. The two-sector aggregate expenditures line combines consumption expenditures and investment expenditures. The slope of this aggregate expenditures line is based on the marginal propensity to consume, adjusted for the marginal propensity to invest if it is assumed to be induced when constructing the line. This is one of three aggregate expenditures lines based on the number of sectors included. The others are the three-sector aggregate expenditures line and the four-sector aggregate expenditures line.
