AVERAGE FACTOR COST CURVE: A curve that graphically represents the relation between average factor cost incurred by a firm for buying or hiring a factor of production and the factor quantity. Because average factor cost is essentially factor price, the average factor cost curve (in most circumstances) is also the factor supply curve facing the firm. This curve is constructed to capture the relation between average factor cost and the factor quantity, holding other variables constant.

FOUR-SECTOR AGGREGATE EXPENDITURES LINE

A graphical depiction of the relation between aggregate expenditures by the four macroeconomic sectors (household, business, government, and foreign) and the level of aggregate income or production. The four-sector aggregate expenditures line combines consumption expenditures, investment expenditures, government purchases, and net exports. The slope of this aggregate expenditures line is based on the marginal propensity to consume, adjusted for marginal propensities of the other expenditures that are assumed to be induced when constructing the line. This is one of three aggregate expenditures lines based on the number of sectors included. The others are the two-sector aggregate expenditures line and the three-sector aggregate expenditures line.
