APP: The abbreviation of average physical product, which is the quantity of total output produced per unit of a variable input, holding all other inputs fixed. Average physical product, usually abbreviated APP, is found by dividing total physical product by the quantity of the variable input. Average physical product is actually just another name for average product (AP). But don't be confused by the extra term (physical).

SWITCHING POINT: The price/time at which the economy switches from the use of one (usually finite) natural resource to a substitute resource. The switching point is reached because increases in scarcity rent and marginal extraction cost cause a gradual depletion of a finite natural resource. As the price rises, buyers search for less expensive substitutes. Eventually the price of a finite resource is equal to the price of a substitute resource. This is the switching point. For example, we are not likely to awaken one day to discover the world's oil supply is gone. Before such time occurs, we will have switched to substitute products like oil shale, gasohol, geothermal, or solar.

INNOVATION

The initial application of new products, technologies, and ideas that usually generate a beneficial improvement in society and the economy. In contrast to an invention, which is the act of creation, an innovation is the implementation of a product, technology, or idea. Innovations are changes in existing institutions and the status quo, prompted by risk-taking entrepreneurs, that promote prosperity and improved living standards.
