WHAT?: One of three basic questions of allocation (the other two are How? and For Whom?). Answering the 'What?' question of allocation determines the types and quantities of goods and services produced with society's limited resources. Should society produce hammocks or hot fudge sundaes? Computers or Cadillacs? Birdfeed or battleships? The production possibilities analysis sets the stage for answering the 'What?' question.

PRIVATE SECTOR: A short-cut term that combines the households and businesses in the economy into a single group. This term should be contrasted directly with public sector, which is a comparable short-cut term for government. The distinction between private sector and public sector reflects the two basic methods of answering the three questions of allocation--markets and government. Markets make use of private ownership and control of resources (hence the term "private" sector) for voluntary allocation decisions.
