DISTRIBUTION STANDARDS: Three alternative criteria for distributing income to members of society--contributive standard, equality standard, needs standard. A basic notion in economics is that income is generated through production (circular flow). The amount of income generated each year depends on the value of goods and services produced with the economy's limited resources. But once this income is generated it must be distributed to members of society. The contributive, equality, and needs standards are the three primary criteria for distributing income.

PRINCIPLE OF THE MEDIAN VOTER: A voting principle stating that the median voter determines the outcome of an election governed by majority rule. The median voter is the one with an equal number of voters on either side of the vote. As such, the vote cast by THE median voter is the deciding or majority vote. However, this median voter's preference might not generate the best, that is, efficient, result.

Five categories of the price elasticity of supply that reflect the entire range of the relative responsiveness of a change in quantity supplied to a change in price. These five alternatives--perfectly elastic, relatively elastic, unit elastic, relatively inelastic, and perfectly inelastic--are often illustrated by different supply curves. The price elasticity of demand is also reflected by five comparable alternatives.
