JAWBONING: The use of verbal encouragement or discouragement by political leaders or other influential people to achieve particular results. This term was coined in reference to actions by President Lyndon Johnson in the 1960s. It is essentially an attempt by the President or other influential leaders to change public sentiment and move the economy in a particular direction without implementing or waiting for the results of formal economic policies. This also goes by the term moral suasion.

PRODUCTION POSSIBILITIES CURVE: A curve that illustrates the production possibilities for the economy. A production possibilities curve (or PPC), like the one presented here, represents the boundary or frontier of the economy's production capabilities. That's why it's also frequently termed a production possibilities frontier (or PPF). As a frontier, it is the maximum production possible given existing (fixed) resources and technology. Producing on the curve means resources are fully employed, while producing inside the curve means resources are unemployed. The law of increasing opportunity cost is what gives the curve its distinctive convex shape.

AGGREGATE DEMAND DETERMINANTS

An assortment of ceteris paribus factors other than the price level that affect aggregate demand, but which are assumed constant when the aggregate demand curve is constructed. Changes in any of the aggregate demand determinants cause the aggregate demand curve to shift. The specific ceteris paribus factors are commonly grouped by the four, broad expenditure categories--consumption expenditures, investment expenditures, government purchases, and net exports.
