EFFICIENT SEARCH, DETERMINANTS: Two factors that affect information search are (1) the amount of purchase and (2) frequency of purchase. Goods that are relatively expensive increase the potential benefit of search. For example, saving 10 percent on the purchase price of a house is significantly more than saving 10 percent on the price of bar of soap. Buyers are thus likely to undertake extensive search when buying a house, but not for soap. Goods that are purchased more frequently also don't require extensive search activities. Since buyers already know the "best places" to buy the "highest quality" products at the "lowest prices" for frequently purchased goods, little can be gained from search.

PROSPERITY: A period of sustained growth that often lasts for a decade or two. A prosperity usually includes several separate business cycles, each with relative mild recessions and very vigorous, healthy expansions. The United States enjoyed prosperity from the late-1940s into the mid-1960s, a period that many look fondly on as our "golden age." The prosperity of this period, as is often the case, was the direct aftermath of a severe depression. In particular, the restructuring needed to achieve a period of extended prosperity was a hallmark of the Great Depression of the 1930s.
