SOCIALISM: In theory, an economy that is a transition between capitalism and communism. It is based on--(1) government, rather than individual, ownership of resources, (2) worker control of the government, such that workers, rather than capitalist, control capital and other productive resources, (3) income allocated on need rather than on resource ownership or contribution to production (using the needs standard rather than the contributive standard).

POVERTY RATE: The proportion of the population that lies beneath the official poverty line. For example, if the total population of the country is 270 million, and 40 million have incomes placing them below the official poverty line, then the poverty rate is 14.8%.

LAISSEZ FAIRE

The notion that government should not intervene into production, consumption, and exchange activities and that the private sector (households and businesses) should be free to make allocation decisions. Laissez faire is a French term that roughly translates into "allow to act." It has been the rallying cry for many people (primarily business leaders) who oppose government intervention, regulation, or even taxation since it was popularized in the late 1700s by Adam Smith in The Wealth of Nations.
