KITCHIN CYCLE: A cycle of economic activity lasting between 3 and 5 years that acquired the name of the first economist to study it, Joseph Kitchin. The Kitchin cycle is attributed to investment in inventories (especially for consumer goods). It is the one that is commonly at work when people are concerned with business-cycle contractions. This is also one of four separate cycles of macroeconomic activity that have been documented or hypothesized. The other three are Juglar cycle, Kuznets cycle, and Kondratieff cycle.

SPOT: The sale of a commodity for immediately delivery on the "spot." Most stuff that consumers purchase are what we could call spot transactions. You give the store some money and go home with your purchase. Much buying and selling in financial markets is also of the spot transaction variety. For example, you give your stock broker $100,000 and "take home" 2,000 shares of Omni Conglomerate, Inc. stock. To appreciate why it's necessary to have a name for these sorts of transactions, you need to examine futures.

PERFECT COMPETITION, REALISM

Perfect competition is an idealized market structure that does NOT exist in the real world. While some real world industries might come relatively close to one or two of the four key characteristics of perfect competition, none matches all four sufficiently that they can be declared PERFECTLY competitively. Some industries come close on the large number of small firms and the identical product characteristics. A few industries have relatively good, although not perfect, information about prices and technology. However, almost all industries fall far short of the perfect mobility characteristics.
