SALES MAXIMIZATION: The notion that business firms (especially those operating in the real world) are primarily motivated by the desire to achieve the greatest possible level of sales, rather than profit maximization. On a day-to-day basis, most real world firms probably do try to maximize sales rather than profit. For firms operating in relatively competitive markets, facing relative fixed prices, and relatively constant average cost, then increasing sales is bound to increase profits, too. Moreover, according to the notion of natural selection, even firms that seek to maximize sales, those that also maximize profit will remain in business.

STABILIZATION POLICIES: Economic policies undertaken by government to counteract business cycle fluctuations and prevent high rates of unemployment and inflation. These are also termed counter-cyclical policies. To counter a business cycle contraction and high rates of unemployment, expansionary policies that promote increasing economic activity are appropriate. To counter an inflationary expansion, contractionary policies are recommended.
