IMMIGRATION: Migration that enters one country from another country. Immigration is usually seen as a problem for existing citizens of nation because--(1) the supply of labor increases, which tends to lower wages, (2) there's a greater demand for public services, which causes taxes to rise, and (3) the culture of immigrants is usually different, which creates all sorts of social conflicts. However, immigration can also be beneficial because--(1) the additional labor is a source of economic growth, (2) the immigrants might be willing to do some jobs that wouldn't be performed otherwise, and (3) some goods can produced at lower cost.

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.

FLEXIBLE PRICES

The proposition that prices adjust in the long run in response to market shortages or surpluses. This condition is most important for long-run macroeconomic activity and long-run aggregate market analysis. In particular, flexible prices are the key reason for the vertical slope of the long-run aggregate supply curve. This proposition is also central to the original classical theory of macroeconomics and to modern variations, including rational expectations, new classical theory, and supply-side economics.
