MARGINAL REVENUE CURVE, MONOPOLY: A curve that graphically represents the relation between marginal revenue received by a monopoly for selling its output and the quantity of output sold. The marginal revenue curve reflects the market control held by a monopoly firm. For a monopoly firm with complete market control, the marginal revenue curve is negatively-sloped. Moreover, for a given quantity of output, marginal cost is less than price, and the marginal revenue curve lies below the demand curve.

BALANCE OF TRADE: The difference between funds received by a country when exporting merchandise and the funds paid for importing merchandise. The balance of trade is a major part of the current accounts portion of the balance of payments. A balance of trade surplus results if exports exceed imports, commonly termed a favorable balance of trade, and a balance of trade deficit exists if imports exceed exports, analogously termed an unfavorable balance of trade. The "favorable" and "unfavorable" normative connotations attached to the balance of trade rests with the presumption that a nation is "better off" when it exports more than it imports, which is not necessarily true.

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 do not 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."

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time flipping through mail order catalogs seeking to buy either semi-gloss photo paper that works with your neighbor's printer or a birthday gift for your father that doesn't look like every other birthday gift for your father. Be on the lookout for gnomes hiding in cypress trees.
