OWNER-OCCUPIED HOUSING: Houses that are, quite simply, occupied by the owners. A person, or family, owns a house and lives in it. The contrast is with rental property, in which owners rent their houses out to others. Owner-occupied housing is important for the estimation of gross domestic product because it involves current production but has no market transactions. As such, the value of housing services have to be estimated before inclusion in gross domestic product.

PRODUCTION POSSIBILITIES FRONTIER: 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 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.

UTILITY MAXIMIZATION

The process or goal of obtaining the highest level of utility from the consumption of goods or services. The goal of maximizing utility is a key assumption underlying consumer behavior studied in consumer demand theory. Consumers are assumed to make choices, especially concerning the purchase of goods, such that they obtain the highest possible level of satisfaction. Utility maximization can be achieved at the peak of the total utility curve.
