LUDDITE: A term used when referring to people, especially workers and union members, who are violently opposed to the introduction of new technology and technologically advanced machinery. Their opposition stems in part from a fear of something that is new and different and in part from a concern that the new technology will reduced the demand for labor and eliminate their jobs. This name stems for the actions of a group calling themselves Luddites who, from 1811 to 1816, sabotaged knitting machines introduced into the textile industry in England.

PUBLIC FINANCE: The study of how the government (or public) sector pays for (or finances) expenditures through taxes and borrowing. Governments produce or provide valuable goods and services, such as education, security, and transportation. They pay for these goods by collecting taxes or, if taxes fall short, by borrowing through the financial markets. Public finance adapts and applies the fundamental microeconomic theory of markets to the public sector and government activity. In particular, this area of study analyzes the efficiency of taxes and the market failure of public goods. Public finance is also key to the study of government stabilization policies that address the inflation and unemployment problems of business cycles. In particular, fiscal policy is the manipulation of government expenditures and taxes to stabilize the business cycle.

A proportional income tax exists if ever taxpayer pays exactly the same tax rate relative to income regardless of income level. A proportional tax is one of three alternations. The other two are progressive tax, in which the proportion of income paid in taxes is greater for higher income levels, and regressive tax, in which the proportion of income paid in taxes is smaller for higher income levels.
