BUILDING CYCLE: The recurring periods of first active and then stagnant home sales and housing construction. A complete cycle usually lasts from 15 to 20 years. The source of these ups and downs rests with the competitive nature of the home construction business, the length of time it takes to build a house and, perhaps most importantly, the length of time before a house depreciates.

CAPITAL INVESTMENT: The acquisition of capital goods at the expense of consumption goods. This commonly goes by the shorter phrase "investment." Both mean essentially the same. The addition of capital merely serves to emphasize that the investment act is in fact resulting in the acquisition of capital goods.

AUTONOMOUS SAVING

Household saving that does not depend on income or production (especially disposable income, national income, or even gross domestic product). That is, changes in income do not generate changes in saving. Autonomous saving is best thought of as a baseline level of saving (usually negative) that the household sector undertakes in the unlikely event that income falls to zero. It is measured by the intercept term of the saving function or the saving line. The alternative to autonomous saving is induced saving, which does depend on income.
