DOUBLE TAXATION: The payment of income taxes on corporate profits twice, once when it is received by a corporation as profit and second when it is received by shareholders as dividends. Double taxation has been thorn in the side of those who own a lot of corporate stock and thus receive a lot of stock dividends. It is also problem in standard corporations (C corporations) which as given rise to a newer legal type of firm, S corporation, which is not subject to double taxation.

CURVE: A line with a non-constant, or changing, slope. In technical circles, the word "line" is often used if the slope is constant and the word "curve" is used to mean the slope is not constant. However, economics often uses the terms line and curve interchangeably, as in "demand line" or "demand curve." Unless your course is taught be an economist with a really strong mathematical inclination, you too can safely use both terms interchangeably.

SELLERS' MARKET

A disequilibrium condition in a competitive market that has a shortage or excess demand. Because the quantity demanded is greater than the quantity supplied, sellers have the "upper hand" when negotiating. A sellers' market also goes by the more common term of shortage. The alternative to a sellers' market is a buyers' market, which has a surplus or excess supply.
