 PART-TIME WORKERS: People who are willing and able to work full-time (over 35 hours per week), but are forced to work less because employers don't need their productive efforts. While part-time workers officially have jobs, and are officially included in the "employed" category when the official unemployment rate is calculated, their labor resources are really only partially unemployed. A person working 20 hours a week, who is willing and able to work 40 hours a week, really should be considered as "half employed."

AGGREGATE EXPENDITURES EQUATION:

An equation that summarizes the four aggregate expenditures on gross domestic product by the four macroeconomic sectors. In the study of Keynesian economics, this equation is commonly used to summarize the demand side of the macroeconomy. The aggregate expenditures equation actually comes in three different versions depending on how many of the four sectors and their expenditures are included.
The aggregate expenditures equation is the sum of the four aggregate expenditures (consumption expenditures, investment expenditures, government purchases, and net exports). This equation provides a short-hand notion that summarizes the demand side of the economy.

The general aggregate expenditures equation is:

 AE = C + I + G + (X-M)
where: AE is aggregate expenditures, C is consumption expenditures, I is investment expenditures, G is government purchases, and X-M is net exports, exports (X) minus imports (M).

This particular version of the aggregate expenditures equation is for all four macroeconomic sectors (household sector, business sector, government sector, and foreign sector). In some circumstances reduced versions, with fewer sectors, are more useful. A three-sector version that includes the household, business, and government sectors is:

 AE = C + I + G
And the simplest aggregate expenditures equation is for the two private sectors--household and business. It is specified as:
 AE = C + I
