TOTAL VARIABLE COST CURVE: A curve that graphically represents the relation between total variable cost incurred by a firm in the short-run production of a good or service and the quantity produced. The marginal cost curve, THE focal point for the analysis of short-run production, can be derived directly from the total variable cost curve. The shape of the total variable cost curve reflects increasing marginal returns at small quantities of output and decreasing marginal returns at later quantities.

DEMAND DETERMINANTS: Five basic ceteris paribus factors that affect demand, but which are assumed constant when a demand curve is constructed. Changes in any one causes a shift of the demand curve. The five demand determinants are: income, preferences, other prices, buyers' expectations, and number of buyers.

MARGINAL PROPENSITY TO IMPORT

The change in imports purchased from the foreign induced by a change in income or production (national income or gross domestic product). The marginal propensity to import (abbreviated MPM) is another term for the slope of the imports line and is calculated as the change in imports divided by the change in income or production. The MPM plays a role in Keynesian economics. It augments the slope of the aggregate expenditures line and is part to the multiplier process. A related marginal measure is the marginal propensity to consume.

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time flipping through the yellow pages hoping to buy either storage boxes for your winter clothes or several magazines on time travel. Be on the lookout for empty parking spaces that appear to be near the entrance to a store.
