UNEMPLOYED PERSONS: People who are NOT actively engaged in the production of goods and services, but ARE actively seeking employment in the production of goods and services. This is one of three official categories used to classify individuals by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) based on information obtained from the Current Population Survey. The other two categories are employed persons and not in the labor force. The sum of employed persons and unemployed persons constitute the civilian labor force. While the general notion of unemployed persons is people who are willing and able to work, but not working, the BLS has specific criteria designed to capture unemployment.

CONSERVATIVE: A political view that favors -- (1) limited government, (2) extensive reliance on markets, (3) strong national defense, (4) protection and promotion of existing cultural ideals and beliefs, and (5) economic rewards predominately based on productive efforts. Conservatives tend to come from the ranks of the second estate (or second-estate wannabes), with extensive ownership of and control over resources. As such, they support policies and first estate leaders that protect their interests. Conservatives tend to be strong advocates of free enterprise and find philosophical agreement with neoclassical economics, new classical economics, rational expectations, and monetarism theories that call for limited government intervention in the economy.

FRICTIONAL UNEMPLOYMENT

Unemployment attributable to the time required to match production activities with qualified resources. Frictional unemployment essentially occurs because resources, especially labor, are in the process of moving from one production activity to another. Employers are seeking workers and workers are seeking employment, the two sides just have not matched up. This mismatch is largely the result of limited information, which is often compounded by geographic separation between producers and resources. Frictional unemployment is one of four unemployment sources. The other three are cyclical unemployment, seasonal unemployment, and structural unemployment. Frictional and structural unemployment are the two components of natural unemployment.
