DISCRETIONARY POLICY: Government policies that involve explicit actions designed to achieve specific goals. A common type of discretionary policy is that designed to stabilize business cycles, reduce unemployment, and lower inflation, through government spending and taxes (fiscal policy) or the money supply (monetary policy). Discretionary policies are also termed activist policies because they involve active decisions by government. A contrast to discretionary policy is automatic stabilizers that help stabilize business cycles without explicit government actions.

SPATIAL: A modifying term used to indicate a connection or relation to space, and by inference the study of urban and regional economics, as suggested by the term spatial differentiation (which means differences in the concentration of economic activity across space). This term is commonly used to make people some exceedingly intelligent by asking questions like "Did you consider spatial factors in your analysis?" However, in so doing be careful that the word is pronounced "spatial", not "special." This just confuses the situation.
