LOCAL INPUT: An input that has a relatively small geographic market area due to the high cost of transportation. The high transportation cost means it is easier (that is, less expensive) to locate the production activity near the input rather than trying to bring the input to the production activity. Like many things, local inputs are a matter of degree. At the other end of the spectrum lies transferrable inputs. Natural resources of the land, such as soil fertility, weather conditions, mineral deposits, tend to have the greatest local orientation. Labor and many urban public utilities, such as water distribution and sewage disposable, also tend to fall into the local category.

SUPPLY-SIDE ECONOMICS: A branch of economics that emphasizes the productive capabilities of resources, especially in the context of macroeconomic instability and economic growth. Supply-side economics became popular in the 1980s after several decades of Keynesian "demand-side" economics. Supply-side proponents contended that policies aimed at the demand-side alone, especially fiscal policies, was causing economic stagnation. One note result of supply-side economics was the developed of the aggregate market, which combined existing demand-side economics with the newly emerging focus on the supply-side.

POLITICAL BUSINESS CYCLES

The notion that business cycles are caused by elected government leaders who manipulate the economy to achieve personal political goals, that is, to be re-elected and remain in office. The leaders stimulate the economy leading up to an election, creating a business-cycle expansion that ensures (they hope) re-election, they then induce a business-cycle contraction after the election to correct problems created by the pre-election stimulation. This explanation suggests that government is the source of business cycles are should not be allowed to implement discretionary stabilization policies.
