GOVERNMENT PURCHASES OF GOODS AND SERVICES: Expenditures on final goods and services (that is, gross domestic product) undertaken by the government sector. The official entry for government purchases in the National Income and Product Accounts maintained by the Bureau of Economic Analysis is termed government consumption expenditures and gross investment. Government purchases are used to operate the government (administrative salaries, etc.) and to provide public goods (national defense, highways, etc.). Government purchases do not include other government spending for transfer payments. These are expenditures on final goods by all three levels of government: federal, state, and local governments.

LAISSEZ FAIRE

The notion that government should not intervene into production, consumption, and exchange activities and that the private sector (households and businesses) should be free to make allocation decisions. Laissez faire is a French term that roughly translates into "allow to act." It has been the rallying cry for many people (primarily business leaders) who oppose government intervention, regulation, or even taxation since it was popularized in the late 1700s by Adam Smith in The Wealth of Nations.

[What's This?]
