TERM LIMITS: A policy designed in part to address the public sector efficiency created by re-election seeking political leaders by limiting the amount of time politicians can hold elected office ONLY. Once the limit has been reached, the politician can serve no more... in that particular office. The goal of term limits is to prevent political leaders from spending excessive effort seeking re-election and pursuing policies that appease only the special interest groups that might ensure re-election. The U.S. Presidency has had term limits in place for decades and a number of state and local offices also operate with term limits. Unfortunately term limit restrict voter choices. Perhaps the current office holder actually is the best person for the job and the one preferred by the voters. This matters not. Someone else will be elected. In addition, placing term limits on one office doesn't prevent the politician from seeking election to another office, and in so doing, curry the favor of the same special interest groups.

STATISTICAL DISCREPANCY: The official adjustment factor in the National Income and Product Accounts that ensures equality between the income and expenditures approaches to measuring gross domestic product. This is one of several differences between national income (the resource cost of production) and gross/net domestic product (the market value of production). For further discussion of this point, see gross domestic product and national income or net domestic product and national income. This statistical discrepancy tends to be relatively small, usually less than 1% of gross domestic product.

LONG-RUN AGGREGATE SUPPLY

The total (or aggregate) real production of final goods and services available in the domestic economy at a range of price levels, during a period of time in which all prices, especially wages, are flexible, and have achieved their equilibrium levels. Long-run aggregate supply, commonly abbreviated LRAS, is one of two aggregate supply alternatives, distinguished by the degree of price flexibility. The other is short-run aggregate supply. Long-run aggregate supply is combined with aggregate demand, and often short-run aggregate supply, in the long-run aggregate market (or AS-AD) analysis used to analyze economic growth, business-cycle instability, unemployment, inflation, government stabilization policies, and related macroeconomic topics.
