ECONOMIC GOOD: The transformation of limited resources for the purpose of satisfying unlimited wants and needs. You might detect a similarity between the term economic good and the term scarcity. The reason is that "economic good" is another term for scarce good. We call a scarce good an economic good because a scarce good is one that can be traded through markets.

CENTRAL PLANNING: A system of extensive central government control of an economy, including organizing production and making allocation decisions. This was the popular method of allocating resources and answering the three basic questions of allocation under the communism/socialism economic systems of the Soviet Union, China, and others during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Applying the communist/socialist philosophy that private property and market allocation were "bad," central planning relied on extremely detailed plans made by government. These plans would set specific production quotas for individual products, parts, components, and inputs fabricated by all of the factories and farms across the economy. This was a daunting, complex task that required detailed production information for hundreds of thousands of different commodities.
