AFL: The abbreviation for the American Federation of Labor, which started as a collection of craft unions in 1886, this is now one half of the umbrella organization for labor unions in the United States (the AFL part of AFL-CIO). As a collection of craft unions, the AFL primarily represented skilled workers in particular occupations. However, it also contained unions representing unskilled industrial workers, which led to a rift among AFL members in 1938 and spawned the formation of the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO). This rift was closed in 1955, when both joined together to form the AFL-CIO, which is the primary advocate for workers and labor unions in the United States.

INDUCED EXPENDITURES

Expenditures on aggregate production by the four macroeconomic sectors that depend on income or production (especially national income or even gross domestic product). That is, changes in income generate changes in these expenditures. Each of the four aggregate expenditures--consumption, investment expenditures, government purchases, and net exports--have an induced component. Induced expenditures are measured by the slope of the aggregate expenditures line. The alternative to induced expenditures are autonomous expenditures, expenditures which do not depend on income.
