TRANSFERRABLE OUTPUT: An output that has a relatively large geographic market area due to the low cost of transportation. The low transportation cost means it is easier (that is, less expensive) to bring the output to the consumers rather than locating consumers near the output. Like many things, transferrable outputs are a matter of degree. At the other end of the spectrum lies local outputs. Most manufactured goods tend to have a high degree of transferability. Information, especially through television broadcasting and Internet web sites, is also relatively easily transported.

SUPER MAJORITY RULE: A voting rule in which decisions are made based on a specified fraction of votes greater than 50 percent and less than 100 percent. For example, a super majority of two-thirds is required for Congress to override a legislative veto by the President. A growing number of state and local governments require a super majority approval, usually in the range of 60 to 75 percent, for an increase in taxes. This is one of several voting rules. Others include majority, unanimity, and plurality.

FIXED INVESTMENT

Capital investment expenditures for factories, machinery, tools, and buildings. This is one of two main categories of gross private domestic investment included in the National Income and Product Accounts maintained by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The other category is change in private inventories. This category is generally about 95 to 97 percent of gross private domestic investment and includes the capital goods that best reflect what most people consider capital investment.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time wandering around the downtown area seeking to buy either a pair of red and purple designer socks or a T-shirt commemorating Thor Heyerdahl's Pacific crossing aboard the Kon-Tiki. Be on the lookout for deranged pelicans.
