INDUCED INVESTMENT: Business investment expenditures that depend on income or production (especially national income or gross national product). An increase in national income triggers an increase in induced investment expenditures. Induced investment is graphically depicted as the slope of the investment line and is measured by the marginal propensity to invest. The induced relation between income and investment, as well as other induced expenditures, form the foundation of the multiplier effect triggered by changes in autonomous expenditures.

ELASTICITY: The relative response of one variable to changes in another variable. The phrase "relative response" is best interpreted as the percentage change. For example, the price elasticity of demand, one of the more important applications of this concept in economics, is the percentage change in quantity demanded measured against the percentage change in price. Other notable economic elasticities are the price elasticity of supply, income elasticity of demand, and cross elasticity of demand.

LEAKAGES

Non-consumption uses of aggregate income. The three uses of income grouped under the heading of leakages are saving, taxes, and imports. Leakages subtract from the core circular flow containing consumption, production, and income. The injections-leakages model is a Keynesian economics analysis that combines leakages with injections (investment expenditures, government purchases and exports) to identify the equilibrium level of aggregate production and income.
