RATIONAL IGNORANCE: The decision not to become informed about something because the cost of doing it is more than the expected benefit. In that information is costly, there's always some limit to how much anyone can know. The idea of rational ignorance, while popping up on a daily basis for most of us, is quite important come election time. Many voters decided, logically so, that it's not really worth their efforts to get ALL of the details on every candidate and issue on the ballot.

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.

INDUCED INVESTMENT

Business investment expenditures that depend on income or production (especially national income and gross domestic product). That is, changes in income induce changes in investment. Induced investment reflects the observation that the business sector is inclined to reinvest profits (boosted by a growing economy) in capital goods. It is measured by the marginal propensity to invest (MPI) and is reflected by the positive slope of investment line. The alternative to induced investment is autonomous investment, which does not depend on income.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time touring the new suburban shopping complex looking to buy either any book written by Isaac Asimov or a how-to book on building remote controlled airplanes. Be on the lookout for florescent light bulbs that hum folk songs from the sixties.
