G-8: The common abbreviation for the Group of Eight, which includes the seven of the most advanced and industrialized nations of the world known as the G-7--the United States, Britain, France, Italy, Canada, Germany, and Japan--plus Russia. That is, the G-8 is the G-7 plus Russia, which effectively replaced the G-7 in 1998. They meet regularly to coordinate fiscal and monetary policies. Their actions are based on the proposition that our global economy and the individual countries are better off through cooperation than conflict.

REAL: The value after adjusting for inflation. Pointy-headed economist are frequently interested in comparing stuff (production, income, or whatever) in one year with similar stuff in another year. However, in that inflation can distort such a comparison, it's best made using a fixed set of prices that eliminate inflationary changes. In practice, this is accomplished by using the prices in an arbitrary "base year." Once the price differences have been eliminated, the numbers are said to be measured in real dollars.

INDUCED CONSUMPTION

Household consumption expenditures that depend on income or production (especially disposable income, national income, or even gross domestic product). That is, changes in income induce changes in consumption. Induced consumption captures the fundamental psychological law put forth by John Maynard Keynes. It is measured by the marginal propensity to consume (MPC) and is reflected by the positive slope of consumption line. The alternative to induced consumption is autonomous consumption, which does not depend on income.
