REVENUE EFFECT: The goal of imposing taxes to generate revenue used to finance the operation of government, most notably to finance the provision of public goods. This is one of two reasons, and the primary reason, that governments impose taxes. The other reason is the allocation effect. Governments work the revenue effect because they need access to income and resources to build highways, defend the nation, educate the population, and maintain the legal system. They purchase these resources with tax revenue generated through the revenue effect.

CARDINAL: A measurement based on a scale or quantitative numbers, such as 1, 5, or 357.2, that enables a comparison in magnitude. Comparability means, for example, that the difference between 5 and 2 is the same as the difference between 12 and 9. Measures such as height and weight use cardinal numbers. Most economic measures are based on cardinal numbers, including gross domestic product, unemployment rate, the price of chocolate, and the quantity of wheat produced. The benefit of cardinal measurement is the ability to directly compare one measure with another. If, for example, the price of chocolate is $1 a pound and the price of wheat is $4 a pound, then wheat is four times more expensive than chocolate. Ordinal measures, which involve relative ranking, is an alternative type of measure.

MARGINAL FACTOR COST

The change in total factor cost resulting from a change in the quantity of factor input employed by a firm. Marginal factor cost, abbreviated MFC, indicates how total factor cost changes with the employment of one more input. It is found by dividing the change in total factor cost by the change in the quantity of input used. Marginal factor cost is compared with marginal revenue product to identify the profit-maximizing quantity of input to hire.
