TRANSFER PAYMENT: A payment made without any corresponding production or expectations of production. Unless otherwise noted (such as business transfer payments), the term transfer payments generally refers to payments by the government sector to the household sector. The three most important transfer payments in our economy are for Social Security, unemployment compensation, and welfare. The intent of these transfers payments is to redistribute income, and thus the goods and services that can be had with the income. Transfer payments surface as income received but not earned (IRBNE) added to national income to derived personal income.

Ceteris Paribus Assumption:
In order to test an hypothesis we need to keep constant other factors that may affect it. Other things are called ceteris paribus factors.

The last step in the process is to evaluate the hypothesis. We have two possibilities-data and hypothesis agree-- data and hypothesis don't agree.

The data and hypothesis agree.

  • Because we can not prove an absolute, this possibility gives us support for the hypothesis, but not absolute proof that it is correct.
  • To get a proof, we need to test the hypothesis many times under several different conditions. But even then, we can not be 100%, absolutely certain.
  • With growing certainty of the validity of the hypothesis, it becomes a principle and is added to the theory for an expanded theory.
