UNDERGROUND ECONOMY: Illegal and unreported market transactions and productive activity that escape the watchful eyes of official record keepers. By most estimates, a substantial amount of productive activity takes place in the underground economy for the United States. Of course, these are only estimates because such activity, by definition, goes unreported. Were activity in the underground economy added to official activity in the "overground" economy, then gross domestic product could be boosted by as much as 25% to 50%, or more.

CONSUMER BEHAVIOR: Actions (that is, behavior) undertaken by people (that is, consumers) that involve the satisfaction of wants and needs. Such actions often, but not always, involve the acquisition (that is, purchase) of goods and services through markets. The study of consumer behavior is fundamental to the understanding of the demand-side of the market. From a marketing perspective, the patterns, actions or steps in the process of decision making by consumers. The decision making process is influenced by various attitudes, motives, and social influences on the purchaser. Buyers tend to behave in certain ways including habits, brand loyalty, and post purchase behavior.

NOVEL INFORMATION

Information received by the five senses (sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell) that is new, different, and unusual. Because novel information has the potential to be threatening it triggers an automatic response through what is commonly termed the "fight or flight" reaction. Novel information is evaluated in contrast to redundant information, which is familiar and presumably nonthreatening.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time looking for a downtown retail store seeking to buy either a T-shirt commemorating yesterday or a pair of handcrafted oven mitts. Be on the lookout for florescent light bulbs that hum folk songs from the sixties.
