INCOME RECEIVED BUT NOT EARNED: Abbreviate IRBNE, this is income received by the household sector, but not earned by a factor of production. The three types of income received but not earned are Social Security payments, unemployment compensation payments, and welfare payments. These are also the three key transfer payments from the government sector to the household sector. The basic goal of transfer payments is to transfer a portion of the income earned by the factors of production (because they HAVE income) to other members of the household sector (who presumably NEED more income than they have). IRBNE is added to national income to derive personal income.

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.

General Electric is the only stock from the original 1896 Dow Jones Industrial Average remaining in the current index.
"Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage."
