RIGID PRICES: The proposition that some prices adjust slowly in response to market shortages or surpluses. This condition is most important for macroeconomic activity in the short run and short-run aggregate market analysis. In particular, rigid (also termed inflexible or sticky) prices are a key reason underlying the positive slope of the short-run aggregate supply curve. Prices tend to be the most rigid in resource markets, especially labor markets, and the least rigid in financial markets, with product markets falling somewhere in between.

Charging Up Your CREDIT CARDS (aka Plastic Money)

Here's the scene: You've made your monthly stop (for the second time this week) at the Mega-Mart Discount Warehouse Super Center for a few essentials -- cashews, soap, licorice, garden hose, peanut clusters, color television, and a large inner tube for whitewater rafting. Do you pay with a check or whip out your Interstate OmniBank Platinum Diamond Express credit card? Credit card? Good choice. You don't actually have to PAY for the stuff that you're buying -- at least not right away. Your bank account is safe.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time watching infomercials seeking to buy either a how-to book on fixing your computer, with illustrations or several magazines on computer software. Be on the lookout for rusty deck screws.
